Cambodia – Stay Like a Royalty at Amansara Resort
What was once the 1960’s guest villa of Cambodia’s retired king, Amansara is exclusive, luxurious and tranquil. Housed around central lawns on the former guesthouse estate of King Norodom Sihanouk, Amansara’s 24 Suites are understated yet elegant with subtle Khmer touches. Infused with 1960s French style, Amansara is a gateway to the monumental remnants of the Khmer Empire, saturated with history and legend.
Finished in pale terrazzo and timber, Amansara’s Suites offer a combined bedroom and living area which steps down into a light-filled bathroom with an island bathtub. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to a private garden courtyard with sun loungers, a reflection pond and, in 12 suites, a private plunge pool. Sandstone reliefs reference the famed ruins of Angkor temples just minutes away.
Amansara’s sleek circular Restaurant offers Cambodian-centred cuisine under soaring ceilings, or outdoors at pergola-shaded tables by the pool. The daily changing menus focus on simple flavours, using organic produce direct from the market and local suppliers. For a unique experience, private dining is available at the resort’s rustic Khmer house at Angkor, where meals are prepared over charcoal to the sounds and sights of village life.
