Six Senses Krabey Island: exoticism and exclusivity in Cambodia

Imagine a private island paradise, twelve hectares of lush jungle, just fifteen minutes by boat from the coast. Six Senses Krabey Island welcomes you to Cambodia. Forty private, exclusive villas, the heart of the resort in the style of a local fisherman’s hut, and a spa at the top of the island inspired by the sacred Khmer river Kbal Spean. Six Senses once again offers a rare experience of luxury and refinement. Khmer culture inspires gastronomy, signature treatments and cultural visits. Theexotic atmosphere and the omnipresence of nature in this establishment will delight travelers in search of a change of scenery and authenticity.

A resort perched in the trees

The resort’s integration into the jungle is breathtaking. With bay windows, through-views and a commitment to maximum immersion in nature to give it back its rightful place, your reconnection with the senses is immediate. Just ten minutes from Sihanouk International Airport, then a fifteen-minute ferry ride to the island, and you’re in a Garden of Eden.

Choose from forty private villas in six different categories. Some are in the heart of the jungle, others face the sea. Villas feature a private pool and can accommodate up to six guests.

They’re all designed using sustainable materials and feature outdoor environments, including magnificent terraces surrounding the pools. The bathrooms give you the feeling of showering or bathing outside, and some even have an open-air shower.

With a minimum surface area of 77 m² and up to 200 m² for the two-bedroom villa on the ocean, each offers a highly successful immersive experience thanks to the materials chosen and the organization of the living and outdoor spaces. We’re particularly fond of the villa nestled in the jungle, a veritable jewel in the crown of lush nature, and the Beach Retreat, a secluded idyll with its own private cove.

All villas are rented with the services of your Guest Experience Maker available to accompany you 24 hours a day.

Sensory experiences and meditation at the spa

The immense spa is inspired by the sacred Kbal Spean river, borrowing its fluidity and the light typical of natural rivers. The waves on the ceiling are reminiscent of propagation on the surface of water.

The 2,000 m² wellness area features seven individual and double treatment rooms, a meditation corner, indoor and outdoor yoga and flying yoga areas. The fitness room features cardio-training equipment, weight machines and functional training elements. It can also be found in the spa area, combining physical exercise and mental relaxation.

Not forgetting the bar The Alchemy an intriguing space emblematic of the Six Senses concept. It hosts wellness workshops to discover the therapeutic properties of the herbs, spices and ingredients making up the spa’s products.

In keeping with the holistic approach of Six Senses spas, on arrival you can take advantage of a meeting with a wellness expert to carry out a health check. Thanks to this assessment, you’ll be able to define the wellness program that suits you best during your stay: fitness, sleep quality, yoga discovery, detox or weight loss .

During your stay you can discover traditional Khmer therapies, the Six Senses Integrated Wellness program for an intense experience or simply the signature treatments and their Cambodian influences.

The Khmer Kru Thnam Herbal massage, for example, uses traditional herbs wrapped in a muslin ballotin. You choose certain ingredients from among the herbs to create the massage that will soothe your tensions.

The scrub also draws its originality from traditional essences. You’ll start with a workshop at The Alchemy Bar, where you’ll mix Kampot sea salt with local Khmer herbs and aromatic essential oils. Then your wellness expert will apply this mixture to your body to stimulate circulation, leaving your skin soft and smooth. This experience ends with the application of a nourishing coconut oil.

As at other Six Senses addresses, signature treatments are always an extraordinary experience. We recommend the soothing and enriching Antioxidant Facial. Designed for dry, sensitive or damaged skin, this ultra-soothing, restorative facial uses a nutrient-rich elixir and essential fatty acids to revitalize skin and protect it from free radical damage. The relaxing and soothing marma massage uses an active serum based on neem, coriander seeds and rhu khus to increase collagen and hyaluronic acid production, before a botanical hydration mask locks in this precious moisture in the upper layers of the epidermis.

Following a consultation with one of the spa’s wellness experts, you may choose the Dreamcatcher treatment, an ultra-relaxing massage guided by ambient sound to help you get back to sleep.

Delicious organic menus inspired by Khmer cuisine

Khmer cuisine uses more herbs and fewer spices than other Asian cuisines. Discover how refined and surprising this cuisine can be in the no less unusual Tree Bar. It looks as if it’s perched in the trees, and the tree-house-inspired decor lends the place an elegant, intimate ambience. It’s a perfect match for the dishes served, a creative interpretation of Southeast Asian flavors.

All ingredients are sourced from the hotel’s own organic garden and local community produce.

At AHA Restaurant, the terrace overlooks the Gulf of Thailand and chef Todd Adams concocts the house’s organic and healthy dishes, using sustainably sourced ingredients. No need to deprive yourself!

A large part of the resort faces due west. Making possible fabulous moments spent at the Sunset Bar which, as its name suggests, is the hotel’s spot to observe the perpetual cycle of nature.

The Double-Dip Hangout completes the dining experience at Six Senses Krabey Island. Located next to the hotel’s infinity pool, for light meals, drinks and a selection of homemade ice creams and sorbets.
