The 30-acre private island resort of Six Senses Krabey Island in Cambodia has opened, with an expansive spa inspired by the sacred Khmer Kbal Spean River.
The Six Senses Spa Krabey Island offers a wide range of holistic rejuvenation and beauty treatments, as well as the Six Senses Integrated Wellness screening, which combines different readings to help create a personalised programme designed to boost metabolism, energy levels and brain power.
The spa also incorporates a comprehensive gym, rooftop yoga pavilion, indoor aerial yoga studio, Crystal Water Room, Meditation Cave and the Alchemy Bar, for blending natural skin care products and essential oils using pure local ingredients.
The resort, located three miles from Ream National Park in southern Cambodia, features 40 sustainably designed private pool villas with green living roofs and maximum use of natural daylight. The villas have sundecks with infinity-edged plunge pools and rain showers, and each bedroom offers the Sleep With Six Senses standard for a good night’s sleep.
The resort also includes two restaurants with menus focused on local produce and seasonality, much of it grown at the resort’s own 40,000sq ft (3,700sq m) organic market farm and herb gardens.
Other on-site activities include water sports, fishing, snorkelling, organic farm visits with cooking classes, night sky observatory, horizon lap pool, jungle fitness circuit and the open-air Cinema Paradiso.
Sustainability initiatives include the resort’s own water bottling plant with reusable glass bottles, Earth Lab, coral propagation programme and the support of school programmes in nearby villages, as well as the introduction of sustainable practices within the local Khmer communities.
