About this trip

Escape to the magical land of Cambodia for a unique retreat that will transform your mind, body, and spirit. This all-inclusive experience includes luxury accommodations, delicious meals, exclusive tours of sacred sites such as Angkor Wat, and other temples built in the 12th and 13th centuries. Jamie and Susan Alden will be your guides on an inner journey through the power of breathwork, meditation, yoga, Himalayan kriya, and Ho'oponopono. Our Cambodian hosts have arranged a variety of experiences including a sacred water ceremony by Chhlong monks, a kayak trip to visit the floating markets, authentic cooking classes, and a service project where you'll have an opportunity to give back to the community. You'll have plenty of time to hike, get spa treatments, shop, and simply relax. This is an invitation to explore Cambodia in a way that few tourists do. Leave Cambodia empowered by a life-changing retreat that will impact you for years to come.    

Explore 3 Unique Cities

Our journey begins in Siem Reap, a resort town in northwestern Cambodia that is the gateway to the ruins of Angkor Wat.  We will stay three nights at the world-class Navutu Dreams Resort & Wellness Retreat.  

After experiencing Siem Reap, we will venture to a country-side retreat location in Chhlong in the Kratié Province where the heart of our journey will truly unfold.  Home base will be the Le Relais de Chhlong, a historic boutique hotel with private suites beautifully situated along the Mekong River reserved solely for our group.  Here you will be pampered by an incredible staff preparing authentic meals prepared with the finest local ingredients for five nights.   

Upon conclusion of our time in Chhlong, we will venture to Phnom Penh where you can tour the capital city of Cambodia and relax at the beautiful Palace Gate Hotel before returning home.
