CAM­BO­DIAN CHIC

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO HOTEL NEWS - —James Louie

The lat­est in a flurry of open­ings for the Six Senses group—with new prop­er­ties sprout­ing up in the Hi­malayan val­leys of Bhutan, Sin­ga­pore’s his­toric neigh­bor­hoods, and on the coastal cliffs of Bali— Six Senses Krabey Is­land ( sixsenses.com; vil­las from US$841) marks the brand’s first foray into Cam­bo­dia. Rather than mak­ing a bold ar­chi­tec­tural state­ment, the re­sort is de­cid­edly low-key, tuck­ing 40 min­i­mal­ist pool vil­las into a densely forested 12-hectare play­ground off­shore from Si­hanoukville. There is a small, se­cluded beach, but that’s hardly the main at­trac­tion: two restau­rants are com­ple­mented by an ice cream par­lor, an open-air cin­ema, an ob­ser­va­tory for stargaz­ing, and a jun­gle fit­ness cir­cuit to work off the calo­ries. Per­haps the most im­pres­sive fea­ture, though, is Six Senses Spa, which of­fers a suite of Cam­bo­dian treat­ments and an Alchemy Bar where guests can cre­ate nat­u­ral skin­care prod­ucts us­ing lo­cal in­gre­di­ents har­vested from the re­sort’s own or­ganic farm.
