Bodia Spa in Phnom Penh

My friend, Ate Elma, treated me to an afternoon of pampering last weekend at Bodia Spa. It was her last year's birthday gift for me. It came late because we were both busy.

She booked us both a 60-minute caudalie anti-aging & firming facial and a 45-minute natural jasmine rice body scrub.

I arrived first at the Spa. While waiting for my friend, they gave me a cold towel and a tea. I don't know what the tea was but I tasted a ginger.

{Lovely tray!}

I like:
  • The Spa room was cozy and relaxing. I almost feel asleep while having the scrub.
  • I liked the scrub. I haven't had a body scrub in a long while. My body welcomed the removal of the dead skin cells. LOL!
  • The therapist who did the scrub was gentle.

I didn't quite like:
  • The shower area had no curtain. I didn't like the fact that after the scrub I had to take a shower while the therapist was still inside the room cleaning up the massage bed in preparation for the next treatment. I know I am being a prude but privacy should be given to clients whether they prefer it or not.
  • There was no towel inside the shower area. I had to call the therapist to ask for one.
  • The facial felt so quick. It was mostly an application of the cream and that was it. My friend, Ate Elma, told me that her facial included a massage in the head and shoulder.  But mine didn't. I guess it depends on the therapists.
  • I think the $42 price tag for the facial is a little expensive.

Despite a little disappointed with the facial, it was still a good afternoon! I had a relaxing scrub. Thank you so much Ate Elms. We should do this regularly. We deserve it.
