Sadly I would not recommend. The yoga teachers are nice but the room was so dirty ! I signed up fa 7 day program a couple months ahead and paid for a private cottage. I wanted to leave after the first day but I’ve already paid the full amount, the owner was nice enough to give me a refund for two days. The cottage: Very disappointing as it was very dirty, the actual place was quite nothing like the photos on their website. There were flys and dust on the mosquito nets, dirt marks on the bed sheets, smelly pillows, uncomfortable mattress, the chair inside the room was so moldy, I didn’t even want to touch it. The corners were filed with spider webs and the towels provided also had marks on them. I’m sure (I hope) they’ve been washed but they seem to have been used so many times and need replacing. I have respiratory problem and sensitive skin, I start having rashes on my skin making it difficult to sleep at night. The water may have been another factor that causes rashes on my skin. As the water in the bathroom has not been processed, sometimes it comes out yellowish and have a strong iron smell. Yoga classes was also not what I expected, while teachers are attentive and caring. The classes are really for beginners. Ive been doing yoga for a few years and I found the classes too slow and not enough flow. The swings we used at Ariel yoga were smelly and I’ve sweat so much by the end of the class because of the heat, it’s disgusting to think how many people have used it before me. The food was okay - provided in limited portion and no choice given. Coffee is only available on the morning and they will not make more once it’s finished. No fruits provided in the afternoon. I liked the salad at lunch but for the main course it was always rice so was a bit boring after a few days. Given that Cambodia is such a cheap country, I feel that they can definitely do better given what they have charged me for. I understand that this is a retreat but things should at least be clean. Not to mention that there were obvious marks on the bedsheet and towels. It’s just not a place where I’d like to spend my holiday... And I didn’t feel so welcomed by the owners. Its strange because I am a customer at the end of the day... Things can definitely improve. There is also a big pile of garbage right in front of the entrance, making it unpleasant when going in and out of the place.

I stayed at Blue Indigo Yoga Retreat for a month this January. It was a wonderful experience. I met so many interesting travellers (mostly women) from all over the world and made some amazing new friends. Blue Indigo exceeded my expectations in all the ways that mattered. However, the retreat is not for everyone. Here's why: 1. You must like cats - there are seven (although I only was able to meet six in person) cats that freely roam the facilities. They are the the kings (or queen) of the castle. Remember, we are merely transient guests, so don't be surprised if one the furry guys do a site inspection of your room. 2. Breakfast and lunch is vegan. Now, it is some of the most mouth-watering vegan food I've ever had (especially lunch) and the variety of dishes was astounding but it is vegan. As an enthusiastic omnivore, I thought I'd miss meat but I really didn't. I just had meat every time I had a meal out. 3. It's NOT the Holiday Inn. If you need a North American style bug sterile bug free environment, Blue Indigo is not the place for you. Rooms are clean, and cleaned every day, BUT sheets and towels are changed only once a week, none of the bedding matches, pillows are lumpy, shower water pressure can be inconsistent, and most rooms have no air conditioning. Now I happen to think all these things are part of its charm and make environmental sense but it's not to everyone's taste. 4. Rooms are absolutely bo-ho chic adorable BUT there is no sound insulation. So be prepared to hear everything (and I mean everything) going on in the neighbourhood. From construction during the day to wonky neighbourhood karaoke all night, temple chanting early in the morning and the occasional cat orgy. Oh Cambodia, it's pretty loud, so make sure to bring earplugs. 5. Pay a little extra and stay in a cottage. The dorm rooms are perfectly nice but with four people to a room, they can be claustrophobic and the bunk beds are a creaky. If you're staying more than a week, definitely go for a cottage as a share or on your own. 6. Bugs are everywhere. Now this is not a criticism of Blue Indigo but rather of warm tropical places in general. Get ready to be eaten alive by mozzies. Don't bother with the eco-friendly sprays... go full DEET and always use the mosquito net provided 7. Blue Indigo is located about a 20 minute sweaty walk from Pub Street (or a $2 Tuk Tuk ride). So it's a bit away from the action. But I think that's a bonus. Less congestion and more cheap eats. Plus there are some great little hole-in-the walls around the neighbourhood (some with 0.50 cents beer) 78 Yoga meditation instructors are varied. Some are old hats and others are newbies but they are all beautiful people. Try all of the classes and see which ones work for you. A couple of tips: 1. Fresh Coconut waffles - (street vendor at the end of the main street towards the river) so delicious. 0.25cent per waffle of pure heaven 2. Check out the local markets around Indigo.There are a couple between 2-5 minutes walk away. Some amazing noodles, baked goods, desserts, fruit, and drinks to be had. 3. Lots of good supermarkets around. From blue cheese to muesli, you can pretty much find anything you need or want there. They are also great places to do your souvenir shopping. It's a bit pricier but you don't have to bargain and the items tend to be cleaner/less dusty. 4. Cash machines don't always work... so make sure to top up your cash before you're down to your last dollar Go with an open mind. The folks at Blue Indigo are friendly and amazing. Go with the flow and you'll find a bit of spiritual paradise. Ohm.

When I arrived to blue Yoga Indigo . I had a really good expectations of the place. Unfortunately my whole Yoga “Liberté et Fraternité” concept was completely washed away untill I was told off in a bad french manner for having my top off with a 33* super hot sunny weather ......by a Terrible French Women, then iI found out, This French Lady owns the place....I will make this lady wear a Burka in my Yoga Class in Ibiza 🤣🤣🤣😝. Kiddin! .... anyway .......breakfast was very unsuficient and basic . By the time I went to have breakfast the first day .. they run out of few things already ..... lunch was completly based on carbohydrates.... this people dont know the basic of nutrition specaly when you do so many hours of Body work?.....🤔🤔 I had my own room . It was very nice!. But the first night for some reason I only had very hot water runing in the shower ... and all of the saden I had no more water anymore anywhere in the room and I had to finish my shower with my drinking water for the bottle...... what an experience for the first 2 days 🤣🤣🤣 . At least the Yogar teachers are amazing .. .... even though my bad experience it didnt put me of for enjoying myself and the activities ..so I defenetly recomend the place !!!! 💚🌈☯️ Viva la france!

I have visited all yoga places in Siem Reap and blue indigo stands out with a genuine good yoga and mindfulness vibe. It has the best and largest shalas, shaded gardens, homemade vegan food so delicious you won’t think of eating out! I have had 4 classes per day included in my package, stayed in a nice cottage I shared with a friend. There are always teachers around and you can experience their style. I recommend their package to visit the Angkor temples and meditate in secret areas :)

If you’re looking for a place where you can practice yoga, meditate, enjoy the nature, eat delicious food and meet nice people: this is THE place! Everything at the Blue Indigo is thought and implemented for you to enjoy the fullest your stay. I spent 10 days with a group of yoginis and our hosts were more than helpful for any of our requests, attentive to our needs and discreet at the same time. What could you expect more? Go for a try, it’s definitely worth it!
