About Amansara, Cambodia
Amansara is a part of the intimate chain of Aman resorts situated all around the world, responding to the contemporary lifestyle of today. Amansara (deriving from the Sanskrit “aman” meaning peace and “aspara”, the heavenly nymphs of ancient Hindu mythology) opened in December 2002 in Siem Reap the cultural heartland of ancient Khmer civilization
Formerly the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk, has been refurbished as an intimate 12-suite resort as well as an additional 12-pool suites, which have been a recent addition in January 2006. Situated in Siem Reap only 10 minutes from the entrance to Angkor, this private garden compound offers a home base for travelers seeking to explore the culture and history of Cambodia.
If you measure success in terms of room numbers, Aman resorts hasn’t achieved all that much, they have never focused on being the biggest. They prefer to think small. Intimate. Involving. They offer a ‘lifestyle experience’ without limitations.
The ‘lifestyle’ is about shared values, a lust for faraway cultures, for the world around that excites, shapes and nourishes.
