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.

Reviews for Amansara
My favourite hotel chain is undoubtably the AMAN group, so it was no surprise at all the Amansara in Siem Riep Cambodia was no exception. What i love so much about this hotel, was it's authenticity. It wasn't trying to be something else or an american hotel in Cambodia. It WAS Cambodia. It embodied Cambodia. The experience of the hotel alone was enough to make our trip amazing, let alone all the wonderful attractions we were able to experience. The staff were beyond amazing. The rooms and the pools etc...just incredible. But it was the one percenters that set this apart. Arriving to dinner one night, we were welcomed by a local young lady singing the most beautiful song in her native language. She was blind. It made her voice even more compelling. To sit and dine while a local sings, seated on a couch with no music or instruments was both a haunting yet poignant moment. I don't know too many other hotels that bring this level of authenticity. We even had monks visit to give us blessings - again, another experience the hotel did for their guests. I could rave about the food, the quality of the bedding etc etc ...but boring....all of the Aman hotels have this in spades but it was the uniqueness of this particular hotel that i will never forget. Ever. 10/10.

This was one of the best trips ever in my 70 years of traveling all over the globe. The facilities are outstanding, the service beyond impeccable and the food delicious. They also arrange a private guide, transportation for anything you would want to do and assist in putting together a program that might include time on a private boat on the Tonle Sap lake or an evening at the circus. Highly recommend Mr. Sophea Chhay as a guide, he was amazing!! Of course all that perfection and luxury does not come cheap, but IMO it is worth every penny. Thank you, Amansara management and staff for a wonderful experience. I hope to return one day.

The minute we entered the Amansara property you are treated like royalty. What an amazing staff! Weâ€™ve traveled a lot and clearly the best staff ever! Our suite was expertly designed for comfort & practicality. The food is world class! The spa is a cut above the rest! After touring Angkor Wat this is the most perfect resort to unwind ! Canâ€™t wait to go back !

Amansara is excellent. Being greeted and picked up in a classic black 1960's Mercedes Benz at the airport was fun and set a great tone for the rest of our stay. Minimalist architecture with interesting history and set in beautiful grounds. The food and service exceptional - friendly and professional. The dining room itself is special not only for its history but also for its acoustics, with vocalists and musicians making the most of the circular elegant room. Our outstanding and very knowledgeable guide - MeAn, gently guided us around five different Temples starting very early in the morning to mid-afternoon. The Spa was exceptional. Calm and peaceful design with friendly, relaxed and highly professional .... some of the best treatments we have ever experienced.
