Valentine’s package at Amatak Beauty Spa


Set back from the traffic of Street 228 amidst a peaceful tree-lined courtyard, Amatak Beauty Spa provides a tranquil oasis for those seeking an escape from the dusty streets and frenetic energy of Phnom Penh.

Originally trained as a hairstylist and makeup artist, Managing Director Tang Hour has always been passionate about beauty. After refining her spa treatment techniques during a five-year stint at the Raffles Hotel spa in Phnom Penh, followed by a position as spa manager at the Sunway Hotel and some additional training in Japan, Hour decided to open her own spa where she could offer a custom variety of massage and beauty treatments.

Amatak Beauty Spa opened its doors in November 2007, and offers a range of services from body wraps and scrubs to skin care treatments and massages. “I think that spa treatments are growing in popularity all over the world,” Hour says. “Even just taking one or two hours a week for a spa treatment is very helpful for reducing stress.”

One of the distinctive features of Amatak Beauty Spa is its original line of products, which are all handmade by Hour from a variety of natural and locally-sourced ingredients including yellow ginger, coconut oil, kaffir lime, turmeric, beeswax, jasmine, Kampot salt, and lemongrass. These products, which include all-natural body scrubs and creams as well as lip balms and massage oils, are used for the majority of the spa’s treatments. Many of them are also available for purchase at the spa itself, with prices ranging from $3 to $10.

Spa-goers looking to try out Amatak’s services—either for themselves or as a Valentine’s Day gift for a lucky paramour—can take advantage of the Spa’s Valentine’s Day promotion, which is on offer throughout the month of February. Customers can choose one body scrub and one facial therapy treatment from the spa’s menu and receive a relaxing oil massage and steam room for free. The full experience takes approximately two hours, and prices range from $45 to $65 depending on the treatments selected. For those interested in improving their massage skills, Hour also offers private classes at the spa where she teaches various massage techniques.

Amatak Beauty Spa is located at #4 Street 228 (between Norodom Blvd.
& Street 51) and is open from 9 am to 9 pm daily.
Tel: 012 601 472 or 012 360 490.
