Amansara Resort Category: Luxury & Boutique Luxury - 5 Star City Resort Luxury - 5 Star City Resort Siem Reap, Cambodia General information Infused with 1960s French style, Amansara is a gateway to the monumental remnants of the Khmer Empire, saturated with history and legend. Once a residence for guests of the King, Amansara is a masterpiece of 1960s New Khmer architecture – an unabashedly modern style. A careful and sensitive restoration brought the building back to its former glory. Gardens and canopy of mature trees create an introspective atmosphere, continued in the Suites, which open onto private courtyards and ponds. Custom itineraries lead guests intuitively towards less-explored destinations – cycling through crowd- free ruins, meditating amid ancient forest or cruising to the floating villages of Tonle Sap Lake. This tranquil home offers a multitude of relaxing opportunities within its private garden enclave: a sultry curved slate swimming pool surrounded by bamboo and taupe cushioned loungers with a shaded pergola for alfresco delights; the Dining Room, previously the screening room of King Sihanouk, is both dramatic and outstanding with a cavernous seven-meter high ceiling and a well-stocked walk-in wine cellar. The Roof Garden, surrounded and shaded by trees, with mushroom hued cushions on low seating, is the ideal venue for relaxing by candlelight with pre-prandial drinks or, invigorating yoga sessions with the rising sun. The Spa, which has four immaculate treatment rooms in dark wood and fresh white, focuses strongly on therapeutic Cambodian techniques using organic products and faces an exceptional Angkor-inspired 43m sandstone bas-relief set above a green hand tiled reflective pond.
