Overview

Amansara is a deluxe boutique hotel situated in a peaceful suburb of vibrant Siem Reap, northwest Cambodia. Formerly a guest residence for Cambodia’s King Sihanouk, this upmarket property is located ten minutes from the Angkor temple complex and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Angkor Wat. Boasting 24 high end suites, a restaurant, a spa, and two swimming pools, all nestled within tranquil gardens, Amansara offers a sophisticated, exclusive retreat for travellers uninhibited by budget.

The hotel’s airy, elegant dining room offers additional alfresco seating by the pool, and offers a seasonal menu, featuring both Khmer and western cuisine. The lovely roof garden and terrace is a popular venue for cocktails and private dining. An atmospheric dining experience is also available at the resort’s private Khmer property, a traditional wooden house on stilts located in nearby Angkor Archaeological Park. Hotel facilities include an extensive library, where cultural events and exhibitions are regularly hosted, a boutique, and a peaceful spa. The property has two beautiful outdoor swimming pools with loungers, including a 25-metre lap pool.

Activities include sunrise visits to Angkor Wat, Bayon Temple, famed for its mysterious stone faces, and the ancient jungle temple of Ta Prohm. The hotel’s complimentary tuk tuks and bicycles offer an atmospheric way to explore Siem Reap’s bustling streets and markets and the picturesque surrounding villages. Back at the hotel, indulge with a massage or spa treatment, take part in a yoga session, or relax in one of the two pools, surrounded by the verdant gardens.

Accommodation comprises 24 chic, open-plan suites, tastefully designed with pale walls and dark timber fittings. Each suite has a king-size or twin beds, and a lounge area with a sofa and writing desk. Floor to ceiling glass doors open onto a private leafy courtyard with loungers, and some suites have a private plunge pool. The spacious light-filled bathrooms have twin basins, shower and a freestanding bathtub, and each suite has air conditioning, fans, Wi-Fi and minibar.

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.
