AMANSARA, Cambodia - Top Resort In Angkor wat
The first thing that comes to Cambodia are landmines and Angkor Wat! Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world!on a site measuring 162.6 hectares.
Angkor is a "city" in Khmer and is located in Siem Reap in the northwestern part of Cambodia. The well-known Angkor Wat is not only the largest temple in the world, but also the most well-preserved temple in the ancient monuments. It is distinguished by the magnificence of the building itself and the carving of the reliefs in the temple. It was popularized by Angelina Jolie's blockbuster movie Tomb Raider.
To enjoy such a massive monumental tour, you must be well rested to enjoy right?! Making sure you eat the right foods and not to get sick. Getting proper rest. Or even being pampered after such a long day! Traveling to a third world country, there are a lot of unexpected surprises that maybe unpleasant. So why not ensure at the end of the day, you have a place of comfort to rest, relax and completely recharge your batteries to continue your journey the next day.
I would recommend Amansara which is located in the middle of Angkor and Angkor Monuments.
Hidden behind the tropical trees and tasteful ivory walls, this is one of the most luxurious hotels in Cambodia- Amansara. Like all the Aman properties, Amansara is the pinnacle of understated luxury.This small property with less than 30 rooms used to be the Cambodian king’s residence. The main pool next to the restaurant still remains its original shape. Amansara reinterpreted the King’s guest house with classic yet chic suites.
During your stay, you can expect well prepped 5 star meals and service. It is definitely the level of comfort you want after a long day.
I'm not saying eat here most of your trip. That's if you want comfort. You're in a new country exploring. Go ahead and try the local foods, such as happy pizza (Marijuana Pizza) if that's your cup of tea. Experience the culture. But this resort is a place for you to retreat into comfort if it gets too rough.
Now, lets check out the rooms!
This is a boutique style hotel, so the standard rooms are well fitted unless you upgrade. Beautiful little tub for you to soak and relax. Trust me, this is amazing at the end of the day! You will be doing a lot of walking! And the beds are standard 5 star beds for comfort.
Oh what the heck. Bougie or not, you love having your own swimming pool to relax in privacy. Cambodia is freaking hot! This pool will come in handy!
Now the cost.....
Yes, this place will cost you a little under USD 200 a night, but well worth it. For this kind of experience, it's actually a really good value! And if you think about it, this is where the King used to live! The story you can take away from here is priceless. YOLO! How many times will you be back to Cambodia?
There are plenty of other options around the area. But this is probably the crown jewel.
Hope this helps!
In AMANSARA, everywhere is well thought out for travelers, whether it is room equipment, travel planning and even creating the atmosphere, guests will feel the true meaning of vacation. You'll understand why so many people will be addicted to live this experience afterwards as you do feel like King of Cambodia.
