Alila Villas Koh Russey

Koh Russey Villas & Resort

Koh Russey Villas & Resort boasts an enviable location just off Cambodia's southern coast on a green island ringed by narrow stretches of white-sand beach.

The resort has a selection of garden, ocean-view and beach-front villas, as well as larger multi bedroom options. The modern, cube-shaped structures use a mix of stone, hardwood and steel to create a Zen-inspired, indoor-outdoor oasis.

Nature and sustainability are the main focus here — most of the island remains untouched, you’ll find a number of energy-efficient features and the restaurant is committed to a farm-to-table approach. While here, you can make use of the villas' excellent facilities, including a fully equipped spa, an international restaurant and bar and a beach cinema. You could also spend a day hopping between nearby islands to relax on their beaches.

The Beach Shack offers a less-formal setting, with an extensive all-day dining menu. Here you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with the sand beneath your feet. The grill serves a variety of Khmer and Western options.

Facilities and activities
