Amansara, Cambodia

A Modernist former royal guest house, Amansara is perfectly placed for soul-stirring visits to Angkor. Thoughts of temple fatigue are instantly dispelled by an approach that aligns soothing Cambodian therapies and rustic dining near the temples with an altogether more holistic experience of Angkor. Custom itineraries lead guests intuitively off the beaten path – cycling to crowd-free ruins, meditating amid ancient forest, or cruising to the floating villages of Tonle Sap. When the time comes to witness dawn bring Angkor Wat slowly into focus, the experience is all the more humbling.
