Spa Philosophy

Song Saa Private Island offers an evolved spa concept that integrates the wellness journey with the natural environment of the Song Saa islands. Our ‘spa with no walls’ is not your everyday spa centre – it’s actually made up of little ‘sanctuaries’ dotted across the island, where treatments take place nestled in nature.

Our spa philosophy embraces the Buddhist tradition of metta bhavana – the cultivation of loving-kindness. We also believe in the Buddhist practice of respecting all beings and offering blessings to others. For this reason, you’ll see our spa menu is divided into three themes: stillness, healing and blessings.

  • Stillness: The innate tranquillity of Song Saa Private Island can help quiet the mind and help you reclaim your centre.
  • Healing: Restorative treatments are applied with loving-kindness and with awareness of their ability to transform.
  • Blessings: Song Saa islands have graced us with abundant natural blessings, which we are privileged to be able to share with guests.
Song Saa Sanctuaries practitioners include traditional Khmer therapists, internationally trained wellness experts, yogis, reiki masters and meditation gurus. Experienced in local rituals and natural ingredients, as well as modern treatments, they are skilled in a wide range of therapies, from the ancient to the innovative. Each visit begins with a private spa consultation session with the Head of Wellness to devise a tailored programme that comprises spa therapies, nutrition and activities. 

Our spa products are also derived from nature, created with wild local ingredients by Cambodia’s best artisans.
At Song Saa Private Island, our ‘wellness’ offering extends beyond massage and yoga. It’s our opinion that wellbeing is achieved through balance. 

Part of a bespoke wellness journey could include activities such as kayaking and hiking, or heading out on the Boat of Hope. We also believe that fun and laughter are integral to wellbeing and that a glass of Champagne at sunset can be as vital to wellness as any spa treatment.
