DIN Studio designs first Six Senses resort in Cambodia, eyes December opening

Six Senses will open its first resort in Cambodia, Six Senses Krabey Island, this December. Bangkok-based firm Dimension Interpretation Studio helped design the property's interiors.

Six Senses Krabey Island will be set on a 30-acre (12-hectare) private tropical island located three miles (five kilometers) off Ream National Park in southern Cambodia. Sihanouk International Airport is served by flights from Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Ho Chi Minh City and Kuala Lumpur. It also has the capability to facilitate private jets and helicopters.

Six Senses Krabey Island will have 40 private pool villas that were designed using sustainable materials while incorporating modern technology. The villas’ highlights include green living roofs, sun decks with infinity plunge pools and rain showers.
