Island resort developmentIt seems that the media is finally catching on to what island insiders have been talking about for years that the Private Island Resort development industry is booming. The Business Times recently published an interesting article about the boom in Private Island Resort Development in Indonesia, Cambodia and beyond.

“While discussions about private-island holidays have only recently been bandied about by the average traveller, at least one place here has, for some time, been pre-empting that trend. Pulau Pangkil Kecil, to Singapore’s south-east, is the grand-daddy of private-island resorts in the region, having been around for more than a decade, and it’s been something of a repository for early adopters of the commercial private-island vacation genre. ‘

The article also features Song Saa Island in Cambodia, the first private island resort development in the country.

Guests, then, can enjoy Song Saa guilt-free as they lounge about in its 27 luxurious villas (from US$550 per night for doubles and from US$40,000 per night for the whole island) after arriving via private plane from Phnom Penh or Siem Reap. Some of the accommodations are over water, others on the beachfront and yet others nestled within rainforest; all have been built with sustainable materials.

There’s also a top-notch restaurant and lounge, for which the owners have flown in a chef direct from the Seychelles’ North Island, and a raft of activities – such as champagne sunset cruises to other secluded islands, kayaking and rainforest hikes – are available should you choose to leave your villa.
