Minutes from the sacred temples of Angkor – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – Amansara is a peaceful sanctuary on the outskirts of Siem Reap. A masterpiece of 1960s New Khmer architecture commissioned by King Norodom Sihanouk for his guests, today the residence houses 24 sleek suites, along with a soaring circular dining room and a holistic spa. The original pool has been replicated amid tranquil mature grounds, and many of the suites feature private gardens and plunge pools, adding to the introspective atmosphere.
You’ll feel transported back in time to the 1960s during your stay at Amansara (in the best way possible).
Amansara’s 24 open-plan suites – 12 of which have private pools – are designed with terrazzo and dark timber finishes creating a monochrome palette. Sandstone reliefs referencing those of nearby temples. All accommodations enjoy a private outdoor area, a kingsize or twin bed, a sofa, writing desk, a light-filled bathroom containing twin vanities and a freestanding bathtub.
Amansara’s curved, 17-metre central pool is overlooked by a cushioned alcove and surrounded by loungers. In addition, a 25-metre lap pool lies hidden behind the gardens. A newly added gym and movement studio is available, ensuring guests can stick to active routines! Plus, there are various movement classes such as aerial yoga on offer.
The spa overlooks a reflection pond set against a 43-metre sandstone relief. Each of the four treatment rooms has an attached relaxation area with a private steam bath and shower. Treatments use Cambodian techniques and all-natural Aman Spa products.
The Dining Room is a focal point of the property, with a seven-metre ceiling and two shaded pergolas. Khmer and Western cuisines feature the freshest seasonal ingredients. There’s also a walk-in wine and cheese cellar, along with a casual lounge area serving freshly baked cakes and local delicacies. Alfresco meals can be taken by the pool or gardens.
The Khmer Village House is a rustic private venue within the Angkor Archaeological Park. This traditional wooden house built on stilts overlooks Srah Srang, an ancient Khmer royal bathing pool. Signature dishes include nom ben chok – delicious fresh noodles with chopped herbs, salad, and green curry, from the house’s organic garden and cooked over a charcoal clay stove by a local chef. Plus, exclusively for Amansara guests, the Village House serves breakfasts, lunches and candlelit dinners, and is also available for cooking classes.
The rooftop terrace garden is a great seasonal venue for sundowners, pre-dinner drinks and private dinners.
The property is well-suited for a variety of clientele.
Amansara lies on the outskirts of Siem Reap, the cultural capital of Cambodia. The property lies ten minutes from the entrance to Angkor Wat and is walking distance from the Cambodian royal family’s residence.
