Cambodia’s Anantara resort launches Khmer enlightenment journeys

by Megan Whitby | 01 Nov 2019

Anantara’s Angkor resort in Cambodia has introduced wellness experiences themed on the Khmer culture’s seven-ways of enlightenment: mindfulness, investigation, energy, rapture, tranquillity, concentration and equanimity.

The pathways are governed by a thematic enlightenment concept which harnesses local wellness techniques.

The resort spa is home to four treatment rooms and uses MSpa as product house. The treatment menu offers massages, facials, body scrubs and wraps and hand and foot care.

Facilities include a steamroom, sauna, soaking tub and salon.

Khmer packages are offered as individual wellness journeys of four to five-hours on a day spa basis, with a starting price of US$225 (€203, £175), or as a two-day accommodation package.

Day spa packages include spa treatments and a range of mindfulness activities, including a monk blessing ceremony, reiki treatment, meditation, herbal tea mixology and Krigami lesson.

Linked to Cambodia’s cultural heritage, each different journey celebrates Khmer healing practices and traditions.

Two-day accommodation packages include the Enlightenment wellness Journey, with a starting price of US$650 (€586, £507). This includes a four-five hour wellness ritual, two nights accommodation or more, meals, airport transfer and a local temple tour.
