Devotees of the Aman resorts will be pleased to learn of the debut of the Amansara in Siem Reap. Once King Norodom Sihanouk’s guest villa, the property has been transformed into an intimate luxury retreat that is a lovely place to relax after a hot day spent exploring the ruins.
Clean, modern lines and muted tones in the guest rooms reinforce the peaceful atmosphere; suites feature spacious bathrooms that open onto a private sun-drenched courtyard with a small water garden. The circular dining room offers both western and Khmer cuisine and the comfortable roof terrace is a perfect place to retire with a post-dinner cocktail and enjoy the starry night sky. There’s also a library, bar, swimming pool, and a team of expert massage therapists on hand.
