Glamping resort Shinta Mani Wild opens luxury spa
POSTED 25 Jun 2019 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
Bensley Collection - Shinta Mani Wild, a luxury glamping resort in Cambodia, has opened a new spa which fuses alfresco riverside treatments with ancient Khmer practices and products made from natural, foraged ingredients.

The spa, called the Khmer Tonics Spa, is located in the Southern Cardamom National Park, a short walk from the main camp, and is billed as a 'perfect oasis' for weary campers. It features two treatment rooms, set in a tree canopy amid dramatic natural boulders, and offers an extensive treatment menu, designed to celebrate Cambodia.

Treatments on offer include a river stone foot massage, full body scrub, detoxifying facial and natural heat healing, all using chemical-free tonics made from a blend of medicinal plants, herbs and spices foraged for in the surrounding rain forest.

Guests can also experience the traditional Khmer art of healing through the spa's full body massage, which incorporates acupuncture techniques and passive stretching.

Other experiences on offer include yoga, guided meditation and tenkara, a meditative form of Japanese catch-and-release fly fishing.

In addition, guests can choose where they want to have their treatments, whether in the treatment rooms, the deck of their tent or in the jungle.

Savin Pov, spa supervisor at Khmer Tonics, said: "Consulting with shamans heralding from generations of communities turning to the rainforest here in Cambodia for medicinal needs we have identified the most enriching and detoxifying herbs and spices to create oils, scrubs, and wraps which are in every sense of the word Khmer Tonics. "

"Deviating from the stereotypical use of lemongrass and jasmine our Khmer Topics have a unique and distinct aroma which when combined with healing treatments help guests to truly connect with the rich and diverse ecosystem which envelops the spa, we are excited to bring this immersive experience to guests."

Unlimited spa treatments are included in the cost of the room.
