Cambodia’s first Living Community Challenge project, the Song Saa Reserve is a mixed-use development featuring a combination of resort, hospitality, residential, art and culture, solar farm, and environmental and education projects, covering 233 hectares of former farmland in the Banteay Srei district, Siem Reap province, Cambodia. 

In design and operation the Song Saa Reserve will provide an alternative to nearby Siem Reap city, offering lifestyle and state-of-the art hospitality and resident options that appeal to the ethical, wellness, and environmentally and socially conscious investor, resident and guest. A distinguishing feature of the project will be the dedication of 40 percent of the property to rainforest and waterway restoration activities, through the 1-million tree rainforest restoration programme and the Boeung Chhouk lake and wetland restoration strategy.

At the centre of our vision is the creation of a community that unites like-minded hospitality operators, residents and guests—who share a commitment to natural and human wellness, restoration and resilience—to create a place, the Song Saa Reserve, where they can realise their aspirations for a healthy and fulfilling future. 

Central to our vision are:

  • An emphasis on design, construction and operation that extend ‘beyond sustainability’ to ensure the wellbeing of all who call the reserve home – guests, residents and developers.
  • We seek to combine aspects of cultural heritage, high-end design, environmental sensitivity and cutting-edge technology to achieve our vision.
  • At the Song Saa Reserve there is an emphasis on the ‘local’, including collaborative relationships with surrounding communities and ecosystems.
