After I paid my $7.00 for a massage, I was ushered upstairs by a male attendant who took me right into the change area, opened my locker, stood right beside me as I undressed and then hung up my clothes in the locker after neatly folding them. He then handed me the key and asked me what I would like to do next...go to the "spa" which consisted of showers, cold and hot water, a huge sauna and an even bigger steam room. When I told him I chose to have my massage first, he took me up a few flight of stairs and put in an elegant room with mood li lighting, , soft music and a comfortable massage table.
When the masseuse came into the room, she asked how I wanted the massage and a variety of other questions. Since I do not speak Khmer and she did not speak English, I used my smart phone totranslate for me and we got along famously.
After the massage I went downstairs and enjoyed the spa with a bunch of other expats. As one said, and I believe he was Israeli, said living in Phnom Penh is like living in a bubble. , at least for expats living on a higher wage than the average Cambodian.
