Amansara


Derived from the Sanskrit word for peace (Aman) and the heavenly nymphs of ancient Hindu mythology (Apsara), Amansara offers a truly unique experience in Siem Reap. Amansara was once the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk. Set in a private garden compound, the 24-suite (12 suites/12 pool suites) resort has the ambience of a private home and is the ideal base for travellers seeking to explore Khmer culture and the majestic ruins of Angkor just 10 minutes away. A variety of temple tours and cultural walks is available as part of the guest experience.

Situated in the bustling town of Siem Reap it is located 15 minutes from the airport and just ten minutes from the entrance of Angkor, Cambodia's world renowned archaeological park.

Amansara has 12 suites, similar in design, featuring an open plan setting with finishes in terrazzo and timber. Colours are muted and earthy. Entry is to a combined sleeping and living area that contains a large writing desk and a king-size bed. Adjacent is a dressing area with hanging cupboards and drawers. The lounge has a large sofa, and informal circular dining table and chairs. Beyond, and leading down a few steps, is the bathroom which opens onto a light-filled courtyard featuring a water garden and cushioned banquette. A floor-to-ceiling glass partition separates the toilet from the courtyard, letting in light and patio views.

There are also 12 pool suites, measuring 80 square metres each. Each pool suite has a private six by five-metre swimming pool in its courtyard.
Most of Amansara’s suites are set around a central, grassed courtyard. At one end of the lawn, adjacent to a shady pergola, is a 17.5m swimming pool with sundeck.

The Dining Room, near the swimming pool, is a focal point of the property and unique in design. It is circular in shape with a soaring seven-metre ceiling and an informal ambience for dining or all day lounging. The menu offers both traditional Asian and Western cuisines and features the freshest of seasonal produce. The Dining area also features a range of books, a large map of Cambodia, and a walk-in wine cellar where guests may make their selection. Guests may also dine and snack poolside, or enjoy their in-room complimentary mini-bar that features several local items.

During the summer months, a wonderful green moss starts to grow on many of the temples and makes for great jungle style photography. May to October are the wetter months, but don't let that deter you as the temples are more peaceful and it usually only rains at night anyway.
