It is strongly encouraged that you respect those principles as they will also create a balanced group energy during your retreat.
Blue Indigo Cottage Retreat Center is located 10 minutes away from Siem Reap’s riverside. Siem Reap is renowned for its magnificent temples. As the largest religious and spiritual monument known today, the area has a unique culture and vibration, with deep roots in Theravada Buddhism. You will experience that spiritual culture while practicing at the center or in the countryside, under the shade of centenary trees and archaeological wonders.
During your stay, you will be provided with daily breakfast and lunch. The food served during your retreat will be a nutritious and homemade variety of vegetarian dishes with local ingredients. It’s a fusion of Cambodian ingredients and tastes with some French insights. Meals are served in a shaded garden, simple and friendly.
Blue Indigo’s Cambodian cooks serve essentially Khmer vegetarian meals, with seasonal fruits and vegetables. These meals are perfectly balanced and participate in your physical and spiritual welfare. Breakfast typically includes fresh fruits, bread, local honey, sesame porridge, yogurts, and oats. Teas are specialty mixes of the house, with flower aromas. Lunch is simple and light, with raw and cooked options, some salads, and local specialties.
