You will be accommodated at Blue Indigo Cottage Retreat Center. Nestled in a tranquil area surrounded by trees and flowers, Blue Indigo Cottage Retreat Center is a beautiful and lovely retreat center in Siem Reap. With seven wooden cottages, each with a size of 30 square meters, the rooms are equipped with a big ceiling fan to keep the atmosphere cool, a lovely bathroom with shower, and a mosquito net.
