Amansara
Siem Reap

Top 10s logo 

Amansara is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Boutique Hotels and Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia.

When Aman Resorts took over the former guest house of King Sihanouk, they raised the bar for hotels in Siem Reap to extraordinary levels and it hasn't been surpassed since.

Built in the 1960s by Laurent Mondet, this exclusive retreat is the epitome of swinging sixties pared back, pool-party cool. Free form pools, large expansive lawns and oversized daybeds complement the attentive, friendly and discreet service, wonderful food and ideal location. The complimentary cakes at afternoon tea are also a delight!

All 24 suites are spacious and open planned with a sunbathed private courtyard or a private pool (5 x 6 m) and a free-standing bath, which is run for you daily. Natural light floods in through vast floor-to-ceiling windows and Aman’s killer combination of understated yet chic interior design adds a sophisticated touch to the bright but serene suites.

The circular Dining Room, with its soaring ceiling and shaded terrace, stands proud as the focal point of the property and serves a menu of both traditional Khmer and Western cuisines. Adjacent to this lies the main 17 metre state-of-the-art swimming pool, which provides a great spot in which to unwind after a busy day sightseeing, as does their tranquil Spa complete with holistic Khmer treatments. Or, you can simply take a soak in the comfort of your own private bath or pool if you prefer. While there is no fitness centre here, those feeling more active can enjoy the 25 metre lap pool and yoga sessions. Modern luxuries are at hand throughout the hotel, including Wi-fi and a helpful concierge team.

To add to its strengths, Amansara is located in a convenient spot in the cultural capital of Cambodia. Just a 10-minute drive away from the majestic Angkor Wat and a 15-minute drive away from Siem Reap airport, this property it is an ideal home away home for exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site temples and Khmer culture. Complimentary outings to the temples surrounding Angkor Wat are conducted in the early mornings and late afternoons, utilising Amansara’s own fleet of remorks (moped-powered trishaws), each with its own Amansara driver and guide. Amansara really is a luxurious tranquil retreat and you will come away feeling part of their family.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
