Amansara in Siem Reap, Cambodia
Home to the majestic Angkor Wat temples, Siem Reap is the cultural capital of Cambodia. When staying here, it is only fitting to choose a sanctuary as stylish and serene as the temples themselves. At Amansara, the intimacy of just 24 suites --many with their own private pools-- is paired with superb service and an uncompromising dedication to design. Formerly the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk, this exquisite private garden compound offers the inviting ambiance of a gracious home, where fellow guests socialize like old friends in the Dining Room or at the pools.
Just minutes from the entrance to the Angkor Wat temple complex, you will spend your days exploring this ancient architectural wonder. Stroll the tranquil perimeter of Angkor Wat, marvel at the mystery of the faces of the Bayon, and swoon over the intricacies of Banteay Srei. And for the experience of a lifetime, take a helicopter flight to the Thai border temple of Preah Vihar. After a day of walking around temples, there is no better way to unwind than at the spa, beginning with an Amansara foot cooler.

I've been to 7 Amans and this was the most unimpressive Aman. But before I go on, let me separate the people and the resort. The resort was a 3 star vs all other Amans. The ENTIRE property is the size of many large homes in California. The rooms are ok, small but clean. There's only one dining room and the food was borderline edible. The people at the resort were GREAT. Cambodians are some of the most polite, soft spoken, and down to earth people I've ever met. JUST GOOD PEOPLE. The Cambodia experience was amazing and humbling. Amazing experience for the entire family. But as this is a review of the hotel, I'm isolating the hotel in this review...and it could be summarized as just unimpressive.

We stayed here for three nights. There were some hiccups with the pricing, mainly because our travel agent sent us the "pre-commission" rates, but that was not the fault of the hotel. Overall the property is nice and historic, the service is as you'd expect from an Aman. The housekeeping ninjas were on point. But the highlights of the property for me were the guides, the variety of vehicles they'd pick you up in, and the way they treated children, who were treated as VIP's too. If you wanted a sitter you didn't have to make some pesky appointment, but someone from their kind and caring staff would offer and let you have a night on the town. Sadly, I think the GM has left, but hopefully someone good and charming comes in.
Amansara was King's Sihanouk Villa. This is an amazing Hotel. And extraordinary service. Discover the heritage of Siem Reap the Royal way with King Sihanouk's vintage car, private villa and royal Cambodian cuisine in an exclusive VIP trip organized by Black Tie
We spent four nights here with the view of relaxing, experiencing just a little of Cambodia and seeing the headline Temples. Having not stayed at an Aman resort before we were referred to the group by a trusted advisor. With busy jobs had not really researched the temples too much. Upon arrival we were provided with a great itinerary (fully flexible); where they had taken the thinking out of the trip. Off to a good start. Service was 10/10 (let's be honest I expected 10/10 given the $ but actually received 12/10) ! Food was healthy, delicious and local with as many options for the less adventurous. The room and hotel were immaculate and lived up to our already high expectations. We will seek out other Aman resorts. Tips to make the most of the stay: - Be ready to get up very early every day to beat the Chinese tourists. - Relax; the guides are amazing and proud (And poor so please tip generously) - Take a good camera; this is not a trip to rip off shots on your iPhone. - Go in April / May; it's very hot but reasonably quiet which means you don't have to battle other tourists. - Take sturdy shoes and a small backpack.
