Siem Reap spa and hotel partnership brings new opportunity for wellness travel in Cambodia
Siem Reap’s hippest independent hotel and the temple town’s most accomplished independent spa have joined forces to bring outstanding wellness and relaxation experiences to holiday-makers in Cambodia.
With a beautiful, fresh and luxurious design to match the mid-century tropical decor of Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel’s existing facilities, the new Lemongrass Garden Spa at Baby Elephant becomes part of the hotel’s expanding list of top-quality guest services.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Lemongrass Garden. We have enjoyed their services personally, and we look forward to offering our guests the best massages and wellness treatments in town. With regular yoga classes, vegan cuisine and lots of healthy options to be enjoyed in our gorgeous hotel grounds, Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel is the perfect destination for retreat and wellness travellers,” Baby Elephant’s Marketing Director Ilana Tulloch said.
The Lemongrass Garden Spa at Baby Elephant facility is set at the back of the hotel, in a tranquil area surrounded by fragrant flowers and an organic edible garden. It will offer a wide range of rejuvenating treatments including massage, facials and more, all using natural, predominantly vegan treatments.
Spa directors Daniel Venn and Borey Bunhang have a shared 16 years of experience in wellness, and have provided beauty and massage to more than 70,000 satisfied customers in Siem Reap.
“We are so excited to work alongside the superb Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel, which shares our values and work ethic,” says Daniel. “It feels like the right direction as we begin to focus more on healthy lifestyle choices and customer wellness; Baby Elephant is just the perfect match. We cannot wait to see what fresh ideas this collaboration will produce.”
Siem Reap is undergoing rapid changes, with exciting new ideas and innovations emerging across segments, creating enriching opportunities and experiences for travellers keen on immersing themselves in Cambodia’s culture, food, and more. Wellness and retreat travellers are looking to our magical little temple town as an alternative destination to Cambodia’s increasingly expensive neighbours.
Siem Reap is only six kilometres from TripAdvisor’s most popular landmark, Angkor Wat. While in the past the town has been seen as a bucket-list destination, international travellers are now drawn back to the town’s magical personality, and the smorgasbord of opportunities to experience the soul of Cambodia and to enjoy the amazing value and quality on offer in hospitality, tourism and wellness.
Lemongrass Garden Spa and Baby Elephant are both renowned for their commitment to staff wellbeing and the creation of employment, training and job opportunities, enabling staff to rise out of poverty and become exceptional hospitality and wellness industry professionals.
Cambodia is one of the poorest nations in Southeast Asia, but when tourists choose to spend their money with tourism organisations that operate ethically, communities truly benefit.
