One of the most accessible and beautiful of Cambodia’s islands, at just an hour away from Sihanoukville, Koh Russey is also one of the least developed. Or it was until now. Koh Russey (also called Bamboo Island) is now home to the Koh Russey Villas & Resort, a spectacular paradise hotel flanked by forest and sea, an incredible location for a romantic weekend getaway for two.
Featuring beach-front villas boasting their own infinity pool, garden pavilions that bathe you in lush, soothing green, and many other options among the 50 contemporary Cambodian style villas and 13 hyper-luxury villas. All of the designs though are open, airy with a distinctly sophisticated atmosphere.
Wake up to the joyful singing of the birds in the surrounding forests and laze among the sheets as you slowly contemplate a lazy day ahead, strolling on the beach or meandering over to the spa for a relaxing facial, massage or scrub. If you want to inject a little more energy into the day, there’s always kayaking or volleyball, or you could take the chance to skip over to Kep or Kampot.
But Koh Russey is about pure relaxation, the kind of romantic relaxation that settles deep into your bones wakes up the spirit.
