Amansara

Housed in a building that served as the bolthole for guests of the late King Sihanouk, Amansara retains its 1960’s vibe while flawlessly integrating chic, modern touches.

Amansara

Amansara has a rich history of welcoming distinguished guests from all walks of life, from royalty to modern day film stars, and it’s no wonder why.

With the relaxed, intimate feel of a boutique hotel, an uncomplicated design encourages you to adopt an almost meditative state as soon as you arrive. Spread over a single-story complex, each guestroom is beautifully simple, pools glisten and gently ripple from dawn till dusk and lush green foliage in communal areas provide a shady spot to escape the midday sun.

Then, with what appears to be no end of activities on offer, you’ll never be short of something to do during your visit to Siem Reap. Take a picnic and explore the local area by bike, or retreat to the traditional Khmer village house, owned by Amansara, located in the nearby Angkor Archaeological Park. Here you can partake in some elevenses as you gaze out to the beguiling royal bathing pool of Srah Srang, or alternatively have a true taste of Cambodia with a cookery lesson and perfect delectable dishes that you’ll be able to recreate once home. Perhaps line up a private yoga lesson to rebalance mind, body and soul, or take advantage of Amansara’s boat and set sail across the vast Tonle Sap Lake; a heavenly way to spend an afternoon amongst the exotic flora and fauna that have come to inhabit the region.

At the end of your time with Amansara, as you head off for the airport in one of King Sihanouk’s chauffeur-driven Mercedes you’ll be in no doubt that the dedicated staff – handpicked from the country’s top hospitality colleges – have gone above and beyond, so that you leave feeling completely rested, and fully restored.
