Brocon gets green light for island development projects

The Brocon Group’s Song Saa resort on Koh Ouen and Kah Bong will comprise 25 suites and five three-bedroom residential villas.

Australian property developer Brocon has been given the green light to begin work on a $35-million luxury resort on two islands off Sihanoukville, following the project’s final approval by Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Council for the Development of Cambodia.

“This is the final stage of approval of the project. We now have unconditional possession of the islands,” said Brocon sales and marketing director Nick Chandler.

In July 2007, the government granted Brocon a conditional lease on Koh Oeun and Koh Bong, which are 30 kilometers off the coast.

Chandler said the planned Song Saa resort, which will include 25 self-contained suites, three privately owned villas, a spa, wine cellar, gym and yoga retreat, will meet rigorous environmental standards.

“We’re making a commitment to only use renewable timber for all the construction,” said Chandler. “We are adhering to the best practice for green consumption.”

Brocon expects Song Saa to welcome its first visitors in early 2010.
