SIEM R EA P, CA MB ODIA
N E I G H B O R H O O D Near Historical Angkor Temples
Blending seamlessly into its mystical environment, Amansara lies in the former guesthouse of
King Sihanouk - it was originally a guesthouse for dignitaries visiting the region's ancient ruins
and temples. Today's guests visit those same spectacular sites, including spiritual Angkor
Wat, through off-the-beaten-path excursions via custom-made remork (moped-powered trishaw). Here, 24 Indo-Chinese-style suites offer private courtyards, and half boast private
swimming pools. The Spa is a haven of tranquillity with its therapeutic Cambodian rituals, offered in four dark-wood treatment rooms.
