Song Saa island’s interior design

Song saa is a name given to two islands located at 35 minutes boat ride from the port of Sihanouk Ville. The bigger island is called “bong” and the smaller one is considered as “own”. Together, it is called Song Saa or “couple” or “sweethearts”. The resort located in the two islands were the brain child of Rory and Melita from Australia. They have bought the islands from the local village and have since transformed into a great resort second to none. The interior design and exterior design of the islands are just amazing – check them here.

Xihu resort hotel was a talk in town sometime in 2018. The reason was that it was probably the first modern skyscraper after the 7 storey (independent hotel).

Xi Hu is a very luxurious five-star resort with unique interior design. Oh indeed, this 5 stars hotel also has several nice Chinese restaurants. Let’s take a look at how they do, decor-wise:
