A very special place with impeccable and personal service. Every detail was tended too -- absolute luxury. I would highly recommend this property for the most discernible traveler. Food was also outstanding -- we loved everything.

Room Tip: Our room was perfect as was our kids. Don't think you can go wrong.

This is an historical spot that is now an oasis of luxury in Siem Reap. This property has the Aman magic that we love and the whole experience was excellent. You are treated like a king upon arrival at the airport shuffled through immigration and driven in a 1960's era Mercedes limousine. The rooms are spacious and beautiful and the whole resort is comfortable and chic. The staff is friendly, efficient and excellent. They are also kind which is the secret sauce of the Aman properties that the staff is superb but also kind and casual in a positive way. The restaurant is excellent and the spa is superb. The Aman provided guide Yoko was truly incredible and made our experience truly unique. This is the best in Siem Reap and one of the great properties in the world.

Aman resorts are always top notch in our book. Amansara is not only top notch all around but it has something special that no other resort has. It's magical...The staff is so caring, they truly made us feel like a queen and king every moment of our stay. They are so wonderful that they surprised us with a Buddhist Monk one afternoon to bless our marriage. That was so memorable, moving and beyond our expectations. They had our stay activities arranged for outings with an amazing guide and special access to locations for only Amansara guests. While there was no pressure to go it was highly encouraged. I am not sure why you would travel to Siem Reap with out the intent of seeing the sights anyway. Angkor Wat was amazing along with all the other hidden gems arranged for us to go to. The accommodations are beautifully appointed. Every evening there was a special touch awaiting us. Even when we arrived the first night...It was around 10pm or later. They had anticipated we might be hungry and delivered some lovely sandwiches on top of the amazing fruit bowl that was already in the room. They also remembered I was vegetarian, which, I have found some hotels easily overlook. They were above and beyond, on it. The food at the hotel is amazing. We crave it to this day. The staff is extraordinary in every way. The spa is also something not to miss.

I visited SARA for 2 nights in February and wish I would have been able to stay longer! The entire experience was incredible! The daily tours, circus in town, resort grounds, staff... Everything was AMAN! The most helpful and knowledgeable English speaking staff was very attentive in every way. The food was exquisite! Every bite ordered was great. No TV in the suites, no problem! That was something I really enjoyed, I let the "Lama's Chant" CD play my entire stay. It was so peaceful! The gallery had amazing pieces to pick up conveniently. Should I have the opportunity to return I will definitely stay longer!

Very very good service and top quality food and accommodation, make this property an little jewel.

With just a few rooms, you would think that this is your own private guest house, so intimate is the atmosphere and so well trained are the staff.

We stayed there for six nights and at the end of it, we need wanted to leave.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but try the ones with their own little swimming pool.

This is not a typical "blow your socks off architectural Aman experience". This is the exquisite conversion of a famous 1960 kings home done in clean crisp lines, white render, green lawns, and dry stone walls. Holding back in every way possible ( less is more) and resulting in a immediately settling and peaceful hideaway. You wouldn't know it was there if the driver didn't pull up to an almost unmarked large black gate. Beyond is a shangrila .
If you are looking to disappear into your own private hideaway after a big day of temples or market shopping, then this is it.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a room with pool. A skinny dip to wake up before a dawn viewing of a few Angkor te...

This was my first time at an Amansara; I certainly hope it's not my last. Frequented and favorited by Charles de Gaulle and Jackie Onassis among others; it certainly was an other-worldly experience for us.
Yes, it costs an arm and a leg. However they thoughtfully draw you a bath (with fragrant flowers floating on top) at the end of the day; so you can rest your bones after walking around and reveling in the wonders of Siem Reap. Did I mention that the footed tub is in your bedroom (freestanding) with a view of your private Terrace and Key West style (dunking) pool? Parenthetically, I have to say that the pool did admit a foul odor; but we kept the sliders closed. On the other hand, the long lap pool at the back of the hotel was just glorious and a wonderful way to end the afternoon.
Each room has a minibar that they will stock and replenish even with your favorite booze daily or more often if needed. The hotel itself reminded me of a Le Corbusier building; and the service is impeccable.
I suppose there are some people who take the luxury and amenities for granted; but I am not (and never will be) one of them.
