Located on the southern tip of the largely uninhabited Bamboo Island in the Koh Rong Archipelago, Alila Koh Russey is the latest addition to Cambodia’s luxurious beach property offering.

Rosie is here to help give you the inside track.

Made up of 63 pavilions and villas the property offers guests a private villa experience with all of the facilities of a luxury beach resort. The décor throughout the property is sleek and contemporary, with clean lines and natural materials used to create fresh, bright spaces. Each of the pavilions and villas features its own private pool and deck or garden area, and sliding glass doors connect the bedrooms with the outdoor spaces to make the most of the views throughout.

In the resort's central area guests can enjoy delicious local and international cuisine at The Restaurant or opt for seafood and lighter meals at the Beachside Grill. For drinks the Sunset Bar boasts a fully stocked bar and serves cocktails with a view.

With golden sand beaches and calm cerulean waters lapping the shores guests could easily spend their days at Alila Koh Russey hopping between their pool and the beach. However, for those wanting to stay a little more active, there is a gym and yoga studio on site, as well as a tranquil spa. Walks into the organic gardens and tropical forest can also be arranged and come evening there is an outdoor beachside cinema.
