Beautifully surrounded by a vibrant garden, in the center of Siem Reap. 7 km distance from Angkor City, and just 10 minutes away from the Siem Reap riverside.
Blue Indigo Yoga is designed as a spiritual retreat center. Our center comprises of seven comfortable wooden cottages, each 30 square meters. All cottages are provided with a ceiling fan and mosquito nets to keep the atmosphere cool and comfortable. Each cottage has a lovely bathroom with shower. Note that none of the cottages has air condition and this is not a resort. Our accommodation is basic, but clean and comfortable.
The cottages are nestled in an area surrounded by trees and flowers for a calming, jungle atmosphere. As we choose to not use pesticides to keep the ecosystem alive, you may encounter animals (frogs, gecko’s, lizards), insects (ants, spiders), and mosquitoes. Yes, at Blue Indigo Yoga you have all the comforts of the city, while you can relax in our beautiful green, natural garden.
In the center of our property, there is a 100 square meter yoga shala. It’s an open air shala: no walls, but with a roof. Also, there are fans to keep your head cool during the hottest days. Besides this big yoga shala, there’s a smaller shala to practice in smaller groups.
Nature and art
With lush gardens and cosy accommodation (simple and beautiful like nature itself), Blue Indigo Yoga is a oasis in the hectic city. Full of art made by the owners, students and volunteers which have stayed with us over the years, it’s like a place right out of a fairy tale. You can also tap into your own creativity during your time at Blue Indigo. We offer a number of art supplies and a space for you to unlock the artist within at our center.
You share our beautiful land with the six cats who live here. If you’re a cat lover you’re in luck, as most of them are always up for a hug. If you are less fond of cats, don’t worry, if you don’t open your door for them, they’ll leave you alone.
