Travel News Asia Tuesday, 5 September 2006

The luxury spa at the Hotel de la Paix in Siem Reap, Cambodia is teaming up with UK-born artist and therapeutic pioneer Nicky Kassapian to offer a range of uniquely tailored treatments inspired by Angkor Wat, one of the worlds most spiritual destinations.

 Ms Kassapian, described as the young lady with a thousand years of experience, will join Hotel de la Paixs Spa Indochine as Master in Residence from 11 September until the end of the month.

Theres something magnetic at Angkor Wat. Its a feeling that escapes words, but Ive been working on ways to channel this power into my treatments, said Ms Kassapian, who counts some of Cambodias most famous visitors among her clients at The Centre, Southeast Asias trend-setting holistic clinic.

We are delighted that Nickys been able to join us, said Mr Joseph Polito, the general manager of Hotel de la Paix. Shes been working very closely with our staff for some time now on innovative treatments that get to the real heart of the Angkor Wat experience.

Theres been a huge boom in the spa business in Asia, and I think this is a good thing, but my aim is to reclaim the energy and techniques of the past so we can open paths to a more energetic future. I see my treatments as inner journeys, a kind of education, Ms Kassapian explained. Im a tour guide for the spirit.

Her treatments draw their power from Yoga, Meditation, Reiki and other ancient techniques for transformation. Hotel de la Paix is able for the first time to arrange special sessions for its guests at various temple sites at Angkor Wat.

Hotel de la Paixs Spa Indochine has been rated one of the 10 best Spiritual Spas by Asia Spa magazine, placed on the Hot List of Conde Naste Travellers UK and US editions, and praised in pages of The New York Times, The Independent and Time Magazine. The 3-story spa, which overlooks the hotels swimming pool, is inspired by ancient Khmer water gardens.
