The portfolio of inspiring destinations that create the settings for Six Senses Hotels, Resorts & Spas is to expand to an exciting island location in Cambodia, a country steeped in history and reemerging onto the world stage of exotic destinations. Six Senses Krabey Island is scheduled to premier at the 1st of December 2018.

From its beginnings in 1995, Six Senses quickly became recognized as one of the hospitality industry’s pioneers of sustainable practices, demonstrating that responsibility can be successfully wedded to uncompromised high-end facilities. Six Senses Krabey Island further reinforces this dedication to the environment and the community.

Krabey Island – Cambodia

Located on the island of Krabey, the resort is comprised of 40 pool villas set around the naturally landscaped 30-acre island, with its highest point being 137 feet (42 meters) above sea level. Guests arrive at the mainland reception before the short water transfer to the island. Sihanoukville Airport is less than a 10 minute drive from the mainland jetty, Phnom Penh International Airport is a three-and-a-half-hour drive and Siem Reap International Airport is a scenic eight and a half hours. Sihanoukville Airport has domestic as well as international flights from Ho Chi Minh City, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, and also has the capability to facilitate international private jets and helicopters.
