At Trorkuon, guests can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and choose to dine on traditional Khmer cuisine. The property bakes its own bread, makes its own ice creams and yogurts and also six unique teas.
In addition to making its own shampoo, body lotion and scrub, the spa offers many treatments using the ancient Khmer art of healing that involves applying gentle finger pressure to the body to reduce tension in tired muscles to stimulate general well-being. There is also a beauty treatment that utilizes Cambodia coffee beans for a stimulating and aromatic experience.
Not Just Any Hotel
Jaya House has founded a program—Refill not Landfill—to eliminate use of plastic bottles; support local NGOs in art, music, landmine elimination and more. And all of its 107 employees are local (unique for that part of the world) and full time, plus the hotel supports education and pays 50 percent of English classes.
