TREA­SURE IS­LAND

The Peak (Malaysia) - - Travel • News -

With the up­com­ing grand open­ing of Alila Vil­las Koh Russey on the Cam­bo­dian Riviera on Novermber 1st, there is no way the avid ex­plorer in you is go­ing to want to miss out on hol­i­day­ing on your own pri­vate is­land in the Koh Rong ar­chi­pel­ago re­gion. Pre­pare to be awed by pris­tine bays, dra­matic penin­su­las, cop­per-sand beaches and trop­i­cal forests all from the com­fort of the 50-pavil­lion and 13-villa bou­tique re­sort. In­flu­enced by the Kh­mer cul­ture of Cam­bo­dia, the en­tire re­sort has been de­signed with the idea of fus­ing the ar­chi­tec­ture with the nat­u­ral land­scape of Cam­bo­dia. There are also many en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able op­er­a­tions at work, such as the nurs­ery meant to pro­tect 20 species of trees indige­nous to the land and a villa sys­tem that au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs light­ing and tem­per­a­ture to save en­ergy. For gour­mands, two spe­cialty restau­rants—Hori­zon and Beach Shack—serve a French fu­sion fare and Kh­mer-in­spired cui­sine and snacks, re­spec­tively. If you feel truly ad­ven­tur­ous, the ho­tel will pro­vide you with guides to ex­plore the is­land of your own ac­cord.
