Like all Aman hotels, Amansara is top notch, peaceful and truly makes a guest feel utterly comfortable, restful and happy. The Suites and the Pool Suites are large and spacious, with comfortable King size beds. The bathroom is lovely, with a glass wall that looks onto the walled compound of a small pond and verandah area. It is in fact a perfect place for a cozy honeymoon or even a solo visit. You literally get everything you need with the staff being very meticulous and caring. For example, I had a cold and cough and the service staff was kind enough to fetch me Vitamin Cs on request and even provided me hot water to drink whenever I dined. Therefore their attention to detail far surpasses any other hotel and I have to commend them for their hard work.
Also the food is delicious! I had “Bor-bor” at Amansara for breakfast (it is a Cambodian broth cooked with prawns or chicken) and this was sublime! Other food was wonderful too, like their strawberry ice cream made out of fresh strawberries, their chocolate milk shakes and the macaroons they had stocked in the dining room jars for guests to snack on whenever they wanted.
However the most brilliant aspect of Amansara is the tailor made excursions in Siem Reap. If you pre plan the itinerary prior to arrival with the reservations team (either the central or resort based), they will make sure that you spend your stay wisely and enjoyably. The outings too start extremely early in the morning (around 05:30 AM), hence you have to make sure that you pre order breakfast (preferably something light like a croissant with coffee/tea). This will enable you to last for two hours or so, and then you can return at approximately 10:30 AM back to the resort (after the first outing of the day ends) and in turn dig into a much larger and filling breakfast. Alternatively, you can wait an hour or two to have a hearty early lunch too (depends on how hungry you are!)
All in all, my advice to all travelers to Amansara is that you could not have chosen a better place to stay actually. It will satisfy and exceed all your expectations, especially providing that you plan it carefully well before advance and to spice up your stay a bit, try to visit the sister property Amantaka in Laos as well. In fact, I recommend that you stay at Amantaka, Laos first and then visit Amansara second if you take the “Indo China Past & Present” offer.
