The Thai islands of Koh Samui and Phuket, which once shared many of the characteristics of Cambodia’s islands, have seen luxury property values grow tremendously in the past 10 years – a trend that looks set to continue, given beautiful, accessible beaches are such a finite global resource.

While similar growth can be expected for Cambodia ’s islands, the developers (Brocon Ltd) remain unwaveringly committed to maintaining the natural assets that make locations such as this so desirable in the first place.
