In the very heart of Cambodia, lost in the forests to the north of Beng Per Wildlife Sanctuary, the immense Preah Khan of Kampong Svay temple and of Kampong Thom, there is a retreat so perfect you may never want to leave. It is not luxury, it is not even easy to get to, but once you’re there, the peace, seclusion and immersion into nature are so complete, you may never want to leave. Betreed Adventures was started up in 2015 by an American-Australian couple (Ben and Sharyn Davis) who have been in Cambodia for more than 20 years each. What they have built here is an expression of their passion for Cambodia, for conservation and for a way of life that leaves the world in a better state than they found it.

There aren’t many in Cambodia who can lay claim to never having purchased a bootlegged CD or DVD in their time. Counterfeit products have long been an unremarkable element of daily life here.

Thalias Newsletter October 2019

Pin It

September was of full of new projects at Thalias and we have plenty to share with you this month.

First, I am proud to announce that, after weeks of preparation, we officially inaugurated the Thalias Assessment Center for Food Production in Phnom Penh. Thanks to the creation of a partnership between Thalias Co Ltd, ASSIST Mekong and the National Committee for Tourism Professionals of the Ministry of Tourism, this new Center aims to create the context and structure for recognising and awarding professional certification for hospitality skills.

Following this same passion for food and cuisine, our team at Topaz has a very special gourmet offer for our guests this month; and Khéma has developed a brand new menu featuring original dishes that you will be able to enjoy very soon at all Khéma outlets. This menu looks stunning and I heartily recommend a read below to see what lies in store.

Finally, I am pleased to announce that Ms. Sambo NOV, who is already part of the Thalias family, has been appointed as the new General Manager of Malis Phnom Penh restaurant. I'm wishing her lots of success and happiness in this new job!

Yours sincerely,
Arnaud Darc,
CEO and Chairman Thalias Hospitality Group

Last month, Thalias was delighted to be part of the launch of a new initiative that will operate out of our own premises at Topaz on Norodom Boulevard. The Thalias Assessment Center for Food Production has been created to address the critical lack of formal skills training in the hospitality industry in Cambodia. This skills formation and recognition deficit has grave implications not only for industry, but also for the hundreds of thousands of workers whose ability to achieve their potential is impaired.
