Location: Siem Reap,
Kingdom of Cambodia
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 civilization, 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
