Encircled by forests and rice paddies, Angkor’s ruins are the last vestiges of the Khmer Empire. Explore more than 1,000 temples from Amansara’s location near the archaeological park, including Angkor Wat, Bayon and Banteay Srei.
On the outskirts of Cambodia’s cultural capital, Siem Reap, Amansara lies at the threshold of Angkor: the vast, UNESCO-protected ruins of the once-mighty Khmer empire. Using Amansara’s fleet of custom-fitted remorks, guests can explore at leisure some of the thousand temples on the site, as well as Tonle Sap lake, where stilted villages have changed little over the centuries

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 flavors, 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
Running parallel to a reflection pool, the approach to the spa sets the tone for what lies within a tranquil sanctuary, where therapies make use of traditional Cambodian techniques and natural products. Four treatment rooms, each equipped with a steam bath and shower, are complemented by a yoga space and the resort’s central pool, as well as a hidden 25-meter lap pool.
