An indoor play area and water park where parents can relax

We heard about Lyla Center from a friend who lives in Phnom Penh so we had to go check it out.  And I'm so glad we did, and so are our kids!  Lyla Center is a more than just an indoor kids play area.  They also have an outdoor water park, a gym, dance studio, a spa, cafe and 2 separate sports pools.  We went mainly for the indoor play area and the water park.

The indoor play area is divided into 2 sections and is huge so it can hold lots of kids.  We went when no one else was there.  They have a jungle gym with lots of bridges, tubes, obstacles courses and a gun that shoots foam balls.  On the other side there is a soft climbing wall, a rope and ball swing, and a ball pit.  The sections are divided for ages 4 and above and 3 and younger.  They also have water for those that need it.  While the kids played I went and worked in the air conditioned cafe down stairs.  A much appreciated and needed break for me!
After spending a few hours inside we headed to the water park.  On the hot Phnom Penh days this is a nice relief.  The water is a bit deep in places but our kids had a great time.  They loved the slides and the big bucket of water that dumps on their head.  Everyone must shower before entering and they do offer towels.  Towels were included when we went, but that could change.

Besides the water park and indoor kids play area Lyla Center also has a gym, a yoga/dance studio and a spa.  Unfortunately, when we went there were no classes happening.  Maybe next time...

There is food to purchase too.  They even had hot dogs and french fries.  Winner with our kids!  There is a wide selection of coffees, teas and juices in the cafe.  There is free wifi in the entire Lyla Center.

Lyla Center has beautifully designed botanical gardens surrounding the property with a nice waterfall that flows into a little lagoon with fish.  Lyla Center didn't not appear to be in the most impressive of areas, but just a block or two away there are lots of $3USD massage places.  So you could drop the kids off then get a cheap massage, maybe.

Any other indoor play areas you can recommend?
