Amansara Angkor Wat Resort, Cambodia

How close to Angkor do you want to stay? How about at the gates – in the former royal guesthouse of King Sihanouk?

Within the walled gardens of the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk, you will find tranquillity. This former royal retreat – once the haunt of the likes of Charles de Gaulle, Jacqueline Kennedy and Peter O’Toole - now features elegant chalets gathered around an irregular shaped pool and cool, shaded lawns.

But if the inside is tempting, the outside is sensational. A few minutes beyond Amansara lies the incredible ruins of Angkor. Over 1000 Khmer temples, intricately carved towers, palaces and state buildings dating back through the Angkorian period to AD 802. A destination every world traveller should experience.
