Road to Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Why Amansara

Situated in Siem Reap, the cultural capital of Cambodia, Amansara lies just 10 minutes from the entrance to Angkor Wat. Once the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk, today this walled garden estate serves as a tranquil 24-suite retreat with the ambiance of a gracious home. Just a 15-minute drive from Siem Reap airport, Amansara provides an ideal base for exploring the UNESCO-protected temples of Angkor and Khmer culture. Amansara combines the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’, aman, with ‘apsara’, meaning heavenly nymphs‚ of ancient Hindu texts. Once known as Villa Apsara, this former royal retreat was built in 1962 by French architect Laurent Mondet. Quintessentially 60s in character, it featured 12 low-slung chalets spaced around a curved swimming pool and a shady lawn. Today Amansara presents 24 suites, all with private courtyards and 12 with private swimming pools. Private plunge pools measure six metres by five metres. Similar in design, each suite enjoys an open-plan layout with terrazzo and timber finishes. A combined sleeping and living area feature a king-size bed, a large writing desk, and a sofa. Adjacent is a dressing area and an informal dining area. Down a few steps is the bathroom, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto the courtyard. The bathroom provides twin vanities, a large soaking tub, and a separate shower and toilet. Across a manicured lawn from the suites and adjacent to the main 17-metre swimming pool is the circular Dining Room with its soaring ceiling and shaded terrace. The Roof Terrace Garden offers a seasonal venue for early or late evening drinks and private dinners. Taking advantage of the resort’s tranquil setting is the Aman Spa, which overlooks an ancient rain tree. There are four treatment rooms, each with an attached relaxation area and private steam bath and shower. Other facilities include a 25-metre lap pool situated behind a six-metre wall, a library and a gallery displaying local crafts and artwork available for purchase. A variety of temple excursions and customized activities for guests’ experiences are available. Explorations focusing on the temples surrounding Angkor Wat are conducted in the early mornings or late afternoons, utilizing Amansara’s own fleet of remorks (moped-powered trishaws), its own Amansara driver and guide.
