AMANSARA RESORTS (DELUXE)
(Road to Angkor, Siem Reap, Kingdom of Cambodia)

Amansara resortAddress: Road to Angkor, Siem Reap, Kingdom of Cambodia

Location: Cambodia lies at the heart of Indochina and is bordered by Thailand in the west, Laos in the north, Vietnam in the east and the Gulf of Thailand in the south. It is a country that, despite its relatively small size and large, dominant neighbours, has managed to retain its unique Khmer identity. Its cultural traditions predate those of Thailand and, unlike Vietnam, which expresses a marked Chinese influence, Cambodia?s cultural roots draw heavily from the Indian subcontinent.
The airport at Siem Reap receives international flights and there are numerous ? hour flights each week from Bangkok which are operated by Bangkok Airways. From Singapore, Jet Star Asia flies to Siem Reap each Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. SilkAir also has regular services from Singapore. The flight takes approximately two hours and 10 minutes. The return flight takes a little longer as it may be routed via Phnom Penh, the capital. International air services are also scheduled from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang in Vietnam, Luang Prabang and Vientienne in Laos, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Seoul in South Korea. Domestic air travel is mostly to and from Phnom Penh. However, there are flights frequently scheduled to smaller Cambodian towns.
Amansara is a ? hour drive from Siem Reap airport and complimentary transfers are offered to guests on arrival and departure.

Introduction:
Set in a lush garden enclosure, Amansara glows with the nuances of its sixties conception; commissioned by Norodum Sihanouk in 1962, it is, today, a peaceful contemporary and warm sanctuary, a mere remork and driver ride from an ancient civilization gripped in the roots of the jungle and in the minds of those it touches, Angkor. The 12th century capital, the culmination of five centuries of Khmer civilization, is living testimony to Cambodia?s ancestry as well as the foundation of their deeply philosophical identity; housing over 100 stone temples it reveals a religious kingdom of the most significant remaining Khmer architecture in the world. Amansara, provides a gracious contemporary gateway to this truly remarkable ancient epoch.
Amansara lies in the former guesthouse of King Sihanouk. This classic sixties structure has been converted into a calm oasis on the outskirts of bustling Siem Reap.
King Sihanouk commissioned French architect, Laurent Mondet, in 1962, to build a guesthouse enabling visiting dignitaries to enjoy a cool and contemporary stay while allowing them to embrace the outstanding ancient ruins and temples within its jungle and rice paddy terrain. The ruins of nearby Angkor, clinging on in the clutches of forest and farmland are today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, ranging from a cluster of bricks to the world?s largest single religious monument. Amansara, previously known as Villa Apsara, has had a fretful and fascinating legacy, though this splendid architectural gem, now meticulously restored and nurtured by Amansara, has maintained its spirit of intent. It rests as the ideal portal for discovering the incredible culmination of five centuries of Khmer civilisation, between 802 and 1220 AD, representing one of humankind?s most profound and long-lived architectural achievements.
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-metre high ceiling and a well stocked walk-in wine cellar. The 24 suites are decorated in a classic Indochinese palette of cool grey, pristine white, dark timber and ivory with private courtyards and soothing water features with 12 offering private swimming pools. 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.
Every suite has access to its own custom fitted remork and driver, for personal expeditions into this rich and glorious land.
