Massage & Spas

Emilio Labrador

If going round the temples has tired your muscles out or if you just fancy being pampered Siem Reap is full of spas and massage places offering to assist. In fact, you can't walk very far in central Siem Reap without hearing 'You want massage?'. These can be a bit hit or miss and like anywhere the prices can vary by a fair bit. So we thought we'd give you a couple of options that have received lots of good feedback for their friendly staff, good clean settings, value for money, responsive to customer needs and of course an excellent service. Their masseurs are good, and we have just listed the price for a traditional 1 hour Khmer massage (uses no oil) for comparison. Both offer various massages and spa treatments such as body wraps, facials, etc. Just check out their websites for further info. Six Sents 1 hour Khmer massage $10. Various other massages US$5-$20.

Tel: +855 77369025 Address: 202 Sivatha Boulevard, Siem Reap, Cambodia (near Pub Street) AND 105B Sivatha Boulevard, Siem Reap, Cambodia (near KFC) Website: http://www.lemongrassgarden.com/ Seeing Hands by Blind Masseurs If you want a massage, to support a good cause and don't mind the environment it's in, this could be for you. There are several Seeing Hands massage places in Cambodia, and they are designed to enable blind people to work by offering massages. They offer traditional Khmer, Anma- and Shiatsu-style massages at $7 for 1 hour. Let's start with stressing this place is not a spa; it's down a back alley just off Street 7 and a little bit of an adventure. Think no frills. On entering you will be greeted by a minimal English speaker to identify which of the three massage types you want. The massages here are done in a communal room with four beds, and this place won't win any positive awards for its appearance. It's more like a home, complete with kids and dogs around doing their own thing. The massages are usually magnificent, and they should be able to ease out all those knots, aches and pains from temple trekking. It's handy to have the correct $7 change as the person you meet will likely be blind and probably won't speak much English. Address: 324 Sivatha Street, Siem Reap
