Here is the link to the Amsansara website.
The Amansara is a beautiful facility in the centre of Siem Reap and only ten minutes away from the magnificent structures that make up the Angkor Wat UNESCO world heritage site.
The hotel was initially built as the private villa of King Norodom Sianouk. There are 24 villas in total, some of which have their own private pool. In addition, there is a larger pool for families with children, and there is a lap pool of 25 metres if you feel like doing a bit of exercise.
The hotel is very stylish and while the rooms are very modern and beautifully designed, it has managed to retain a certain old world charm, for example the ancient Mercedes Benz that I was picked up with when I arrived in Siem Reap.
The rate I booked for this trip includes breakfast and dinner and also gives you the opportunity to explore the surrounding area. I have a tour guide taking me around the sights in a Tuktuk, who is very knowledgeable about the country’s Khmer history.
And if you need a bit of relaxation after a long day of taking in the sights, I highly recommend the spa. They do an excellent 90 minutes oil massage which will leave you feeling totally relaxed!

Thanks for the review! The resort looks great indeed. The rate is equally great though – starting at $1500 a night and seemingly no way to use miles or points. This will place such resort out of reach for many. It absolutely looks gorgeous though… 🙂
Long time no read. I guess it is a bit pricey. Then again, this is not the kind of place you go to every holiday. But if you’re looking for something a bit different and want to spoil yourself, this is a good place to start.
