Alila Koh Russey


An ecological escape with a sense of place, Alila Villas Koh Russey is designed around a master plan that is 15% development and 85% nature, resulting in an abundance of natural and landscaped green spaces.

The resort’s minimalist cubic buildings, painted a deep gunmetal grey, feature flat roofs and alternating vertical striations that reflect the overall Khmer Krama theme, and blend discreetly with the natural jungle-like setting. Hardwood floors, dark volcanic and slate-like stone, and steel meet with wooden screens, light-coloured fabrics, woven silks, ikat cushions and plush furnishings to create a comfortable contemporary feel. High ceilings and large bay windows maximise the airy, luminous tropical ambience, while the beautifully landscaped gardens combine the lush greenery of indigenous trees and plants with a Zen-like simplicity and serenity.

The result is indoor-outdoor tropical living with contemporary design, sleek interiors, lush landscapes and captivating ocean views.
