Six senses Krabey Island CAMBODIA
LUXURY ON THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED DON’T MISS: BEING WHISKED BY SPEEDBOAT TO KOH TA KIEV FOR A BEACH PICNIC
FOR TWO CAMBODIA HAS BEEN BACK ON THE TRAVEL MAP FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS NOW, BUT IT’S NOT JUST backpackers heading here – it now has the attention of the luxury traveller, thanks to its abundant nature, wildlife, culture and incredible food, not to mention an island idyll or two. Ream National Park in the south is coastal Cambodia at its purest, with footprint-free beaches, clear cerulean sea and bountiful wildlife. And Six Senses has nabbed a sigh-worthy spot just 20 minutes away.
Accessible only by speedboat, Six Senses Krabey Island is all about unplugging and unwinding. Once a volcanic island, it has been transformed into a gorgeous, intimate retreat surrounded by 30 acres of jungle and fringed with sugar-white sand. The main lobby evokes a fisherman’s house; the villas are made from local timber and volcanic stone; and the spa is the masterpiece you’d expect from Six Senses.

Inspired by its roots, the spa features holistic massages and signature Khmer treatments such as the Wild Kashmir facial using fragrant turmeric and lavender. There’s also a yoga pavilion, herbal steam tent, meditation cave and the Alchemy Bar, where you can mix herbs to create your own products. The food is sensational – think fiery dishes and coconut curries using ingredients from the organic farm at the hotel’s Earth Lab.
We guarantee you’ll be feasting morning, noon and night (particularly when you throw in the complimentary ice-cream parlour!). And then it’s time to head to the Sunset Bar to lie in a hammock and gaze up at vast star-studded skies. Honeymoon bliss!
Seven nights in a Hideaway Pool Villa Suite (bed and breakfast) including international flights and transfers, from £2,185 per person. Honeymooners will also receive a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine on arrival and a 60-minute spa massage for two.
