Siem Reap, Cambodia
Modern elegance at the gateway to Angkor.
Once a residence for guests of the Cambodia king, Amansara is a masterpiece of 1960s New Khmer architecture – an unabashedly modern and minimalist style. Sensitively restored to retain its original single-level layout, curvilinear pool, and monochrome minimalism, the resort basks in a contemplative and tranquil atmosphere that belies its setting in the heart of Siem Reap. Suites open onto private courtyards and serene ponds, enshrouded by gardens and shaded by a canopy of mature trees – a sedate and restorative environment to return to after back-in-time adventures in the ruins of Angkor.
Amansara welcomes families with spacious Suites, and amenities and activities tailored to guests of all ages – including a children’s lap pool on site, and a selection of Angkor experiences and lake-bound adventures for young explorers.
Beneath the soaring ceiling of the circular Dining Room, Amansara celebrates the pure, fresh flavors of traditional Khmer cuisine with a daily changing menu shaped by Siem Reap’s seasonal market produce.
Embracing both Khmer wellbeing traditions and local botanicals, Amansara’s spa offers myriad pathways to inner peace and physical enrichment.
Privileged access to Angkor means guests can enjoy crowd-free explorations of the ancient temples and off-the-beaten-track itineraries, including forest meditations, cycle tours of the ruins and cruises to the floating villages of Tonlé Sap lake.
