Trip of a Lifetime

Barely 10 minutes from the entrance to the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage Site, Amansara offers unparalleled access to one of the most fascinating monuments on the planet—oh, and it's also a ridiculously gorgeous luxury retreat. Originally constructed as a guesthouse for a Cambodian king, the sophisticated, modern resort was acquired and meticulously reconstructed by Amanresorts in 2002. Each suite comes with its own private tuk-tuk and driver, so it's a snap to explore the charming town and some of the more than 1,000 temples found in the ruins of Angkor. Return to this private Eden to enjoy the lush gardens, tranquil swimming pools (12 of the suites have private ones), holistic spa, and your serene accommodations; gourmet dinners and cultural events like shadow-puppet dances set the idyllic scene.
