JOURNEYS WITHIN ANNOUNCES NEW FAMILY ADVENTURE PACKAGES AND EXPANDS HOTEL FACILITIES IN CAMBODIA
Siem Reap, Cambodia, July 7, 2011 – As demand for family travel options is increasing, Journeys Within, a leading Southeast Asia tour company and boutique hotel, today announced it’s expanding its accommodations and facilities with new services and amenities for families and is launching its new Family Adventures tours designed specifically for families with children. Groundbreaking has begun for the expansion of the hotel, which will add five new rooms, a restaurant, a spa and a fully-staffed kids activity center providing childcare. The Family Adventures include tours in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam and by minimizing flights, maximizing day tours and including time for naps or just to let the kids run around, these fully guided private tours are specifically designed to offer families great Southeast Asian adventures.
“We’ve designed these tours and expanded the hotel based on our own experiences of traveling with our young children,” said Andrea Ross, founder and director of Journeys Within, “As family travelers, we and our staff have developed these itineraries to provide a great introduction to Southeast Asia at a good daily pace for families traveling with children, by incorporating tours and activities that are family friendly.”
Through the expansion, Journeys Within Boutique Hotel is adding five new rooms, four of which can be combined into two family suites; a new spa with a range of massage and skin care services; a kids activity center offering childcare services; and a restaurant featuring delicious Southeast Asian fare.
“Thanks to the recommendation that Conde Nast gave for Journeys Within, my family and I had an amazing experience that was truly life changing,” stated Todd Johns, Journeys Within guest. “My highest marks go to (Journeys Within) for the excellent service they offer, whether it be the travel agency, B&B, or the humanitarian aspect of their work. From now on, I will seek out such companies that offer a higher level of travel experience for their customers.”
