Amansara is in another league to most luxury hotels. The hotel is set in a former royal guest residence built in the 1960s, and retains all the style of the era on the exterior while bringing the interiors bang up to date. This is a very small hotel with a high ratio of staff to guests. My family stayed in two neighbouring suites each with private pools. The decor is comfortable and very stylish, and the food is great, served in the curved main hall. You can choose from the local menu or a European menu. And you can eat at whatever time suits you. We would often leave early to hit the temples before the heat of the day, then return to have breakfast at 10 am, and this was no problem for the staff - in fact they sent pastries and coffee to our rooms at 5 am to fuel us for the morning's explorations. In fact the service all around is tops. There are many activities from the hotel menu you can take advantage of - cooking courses, temple tours, complimentary spa treatments . . . Do watch out for mozzies though - the hotel supplies an effective and nice smelling bottle of moz repellant in the rooms. Also, I got traveller's tummy and this may have been from ice or brushing my teeth with the many times filtered water of the resort - I did not eat or drink anything off the resort. So do be careful, even at 5 star resorts. Best to stick to bottled drinks and say no to ice. I am sorry to mention this because this is one superb hotel experience, but better safe than miss a day of an excellent holiday. The whole place has a wonderful atmosphere - this is not a cheap option but such a treat if you feel like lashing out.
