For the December issue, the Ladies Magazine team skipped over to Sihanoukville for a pampered stay at Independence Hotel.
I attended the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute in Seattle for my esthetics license in 2007- so I know a positive spa experience when I see (feel) one. Although I’m not a certified masseuse, I learned some technique and just naturally know what feels good- at least for myself. Considering the cost of getting a massage, even at the top tier places in Cambodia, is at the most a fourth of the cost of what it would be back in the United States- I don’t think I’ve gone out and experienced enough. Better take advantage of it while I can!
I have had a few though since living here (and my last visit) and thought I’d share my time at each place.
If you’re a sleaze looking for where to get your happy ending, take your grody little fingers and click the ‘BACK’ button.
We waved goodbye to the waves, plush bedding, and all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet yesterday at Independence Beach feeling refreshed and ready to head back to the city.
My second day in Sihanoukville was all that a day away (in my opinion) should be.
A few quick photos from the first day of a semi working vacation with mi madre in Sihanoukville at Independence Hotel (swoosh!).
When I say semi working, I mean eating mounds of shrimp soup and ginger chicken, massages with a view of the ocean literally 1 foot away from ceiling high windows, and answering emails/brainstorming. Feeling extra blessed; sighs of happiness.
I’m like the Grimm of vacations.
Feeling rather euphoric, listening to Takers “Alive” on the beaches of Otres, toasting a bit.
