One of Phnom Penh’s most successful boutique hotels, the Villa Paradiso on Street 222 is offering a $55 spa package starting today in celebration of Valentine’s Day.
German owner Philipp Hoffmann says once the spa treatments are done in the quiet huts along the edge of the property, surrounded by plant life, customers can hang around by the pool all day.
“We give complementary sparkling wine on arrival and a massage with a choice of oils for 60 minutes, a facial for 45 minutes, a foot massage, Jacuzzi and pool access the whole day with free iPads and WIFI.”
Hoffman invites people to book a Valentine’s Day voucher for their sweetheart by calling 023 213720.
“We have charming garden pavilion within the setting around the pool and our aim is to provide our guests with relaxation and peace of mind for the whole day, not just for the treatment. She can come in and be pampered for the day. Our spa therapists are trained for two years, and they are excellent,” he said.
“We have five huts and one of them is a designated relaxation hut. After the treatment you can chill out with complimentary fruit platter and heated cherry stones around the neck. That’s an invention from Germany I brought,” Hoffmann said.
“You heat it up and put it around the neck and it gives you the feeling of still being cuddled by releasing heat slowly into your body without applying too much pressure.”
Hoffmann is proud of the consistently good reviews Villa Paradiso gets on the Trip Advisor website.
Hoffmann’s guests at the Villa Paradiso are 60 per cent European, 20 per cent American, 20 per cent Australian and a few local Cambodian spa guests as well.
“All our products are natural, for the facials, the essential oils and vegetables like cucumber for the facials, mango wraps, coffee scrubs and salt scrubs.”
Hoffmann says guests can read Le Figaro or The Washington Post or The Phnom Penh Post while “dipping in the shaded pool or enjoying an underwater massage in the Jacuzzi. At the same time you will be served the latest finger foods,” Hoffman said.
The Villa Paradiso’s spa is open from 9 am to 9 pm and guests are welcome to stay all day long.
