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.

We went to amansara for a vacation with some friends from the us and we were not disappointed. The site itself was beautiful, and the service was brilliant, but the highlight of the trip must be Angkor watt itself. The view at the top of the sunset was sublime

The hotel is beautiful, and the service welcoming, extraordinary. Having your own, very knowledgeable private guide at Angkor Wat, who takes you away from the throngs is a great way to go. Also, being picked up at the airport in their vintage Mercedes, and having the hotel take care of border control/customs makes you feel like a VIP. Staying at the Amansara, it's easy to feel at home. All that being said, the price is exorbitant. I can only hope they pay their staff extremely well, otherwise, the money just goes to the corporation. I have to wonder - in a country where wages are so low, why does a hotel like this charge so much?

I was supposed to stay there for three days and unfortunately had to go to another hotel. However I had dinner and drinks and had a tour of the hotel. It is by far the best hotel in town and the only one to deserve a five star ranking. However it is quite expensive for Cambodia. 2000 $ a night vs 880 at Amantaka in Laos. Do not understand the difference given that median salaries in both countries are similar.
