Found just a stone's throw off the Cambodian coast, the bamboo-covered island of Koh Russey is home to the sublime Alila Koh Russey. Copper sand beaches, gentle aquamarine seas and native jungle frame this stylish and sensitively constructed resort.
Blending with the landscape the design of Alila Koh Russey was inspired by Krama, a patterned cloth used widely in Khmer life and the style fuses traditional Khmer touches with ultra-modern and sleek design. Each of the 63 pavilions and villas make the most of the views and have a private pool and deck or garden area. Additional facilities include an infinity pool and spa.

With regular boats to the mainland, maybe venture to Kep, home to some of Cambodia’s best crab dishes. Alternatively explore the mountainous Bokor National Park, home to a former French Hill station and explore Kampot town for a taste of the famous pepper and lunch along the faded colonial promenade.
The island of Koh Russey is located a short distance from mainland Cambodia and reached in just 30 minutes via a short drive from Sihanoukville airport and a further 10-minute journey by boat.
