Amansara, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Built in 1962 as the royal guesthouse of King Sihanouk, Amansara has been witness to an interesting and colourful past. With only 24 suites, 12 of which have private pools, the hotel offers unparalleled attention to detail and personalised service. The Amansara benefits from an excellent central location, but once inside its gates, guests are ensured peaceful seclusion away from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap.
The hotel itself boasts a beautiful gallery with Khmer art and artefacts, it also has its own fleet of 'remorks' (moped-powered trishaws) each with its own Amansara driver and guide for exploring Angkor and its surrounds. The stylish, irregular shaped swimming pool is a central feature and the rooftop terrace offers early morning yoga. There is also an additional 25 metre pool for lap swimming and a beautiful spa. Located near the main swimming pool, the circular Dining Room with its soaring seven metre ceiling and shaded terrace is the focal point of the property and the menu offers both traditional Khmer and Western cuisines and features the freshest of seasonal produce.
