Six Senses Krabey Island to Open in May in Cambodia

Here’s another tropical island resort to keep on your radar. The 30-acre island of Krabey in Cambodia is the setting for a new Six Senses resort which will open in May 2017. Access is via a short water transfer from the mainland; the closest airport (a 10-minute drive from the jetty) is Sihanoukville Airport. The resort’s focus is on sustainability and wellness, so the 40 pool villas were built using sustainable materials without compromising on the modern technology expected at five-star hotels.

Guests will be able to partake in a number of experiences: snorkeling, kayaking, star-gazing in the observatory, and outdoor movies at Cinema Paradiso. There will be a full-service spa, an outdoor pool, and several eateries including Indochine, the resort’s specialty dining restaurant.

Founded in 1995 with a commitment to local community and environmental sustainability, Six Senses now operates nine resorts and 27 spas in destinations around the world.
