Here’s what you didn’t know about Angkor Wat and the other temples
Angkor Wat is just about everyone’s main reason for visiting Siem Reap. This marvellous, spectacular complex of ancient Khmer temples is certainly worth the visit, and doubly worth waking up early for that sunrise tour. But many of those who stroll around Angkor Wat’s wonders may be blissfully unaware of some of the interesting and surprising facts about the temples. Thanks to our latest blog post, you can make a more informed visit to Siem Reap’s famous temples, and get so much more from it as a result.
Be pampered at Lemongrass Garden Spa at Baby Elephant
We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Lemongrass Garden Spa at Baby Elephant, part of our new partnership with accomplished independent Siem Reap spa Lemongrass Garden. This evening we’re hosting the launch of our brand new spa facility, set at the back of the hotel in a tranquil area surrounded by fragrant flowers and an organic edible garden. The spa will offer a wide range of rejuvenating treatments from massage to facials and more, all using natural ingredients, and drawing on the shared 16 years’ experience of Lemongrass Garden directors Daniel and Borey. We hope you’ll be able to join us for a pampering session in the Lemongrass Garden Spa at Baby Elephant soon – in the meantime, take a look at our blog for all the details of what to expect!
