Experiences at Amansara

Amansara lies at the threshold of Angkor Wat – the vast, Unesco-protected ruins of the once-mighty Khmer Empire – giving guests privileged access to the spiritual and historic riches of the world’s largest temple complex. Explore the site on foot, by bicycle or custom-fitted remork; take a cruise among the time-frozen floating villages of Tonlé Sap lake, and discover the rich Buddhist culture of Siem Reap – directly from the monks who shape it.

Cultural talks and performances

Immersed in both the ancient heritage of Angkor and the contemporary culture of Siem Reap, Amansara enjoys frequent visits from both leading international thinkers and local performers. Throughout the year, enjoy lectures from visiting academics from some of the world’s most respected institutions, spectacularly choreographed circus shows or evenings devoted to traditional Cambodian dance.

Private Angkor National Museum Tour 

Embark on a journey to the ancient city of Angkor to explore the magnificent Angkor National Museum on a private tour with the museum curator, Dr. Ven Sophorn. Learn about the Golden Era of the Khmer Kingdom, discover the origins of Khmer art, culture, and architecture, and view the eight art galleries that showcase the customs, traditions, and beliefs of the ancient Empire. 

Siem Reap Countryside by Jeep

Set out into the countryside around Siem Reap and discover the everyday rhythms of the neighbouring villages by vintage Jeep. Follow dirt roads through the jungle and spot local villagers tending the rice fields, fishing in roadside canals or engaged in the daily ritual of collecting sap from the sugar palms. 

Private tours of Angkor Archaeological Park

From the intricate bas reliefs and expressively carved apsaras to the architectural marvel of Angkor Wat itself, Angkor Archaeological Park stands testament to the exceptional sophistication of the bygone Khmer Empire. Just 10 minutes from the jungle-ensconced ruins, enjoy private tours with tailor made itineries, allowing them to experience the meditative stillness of the once-sacred site, undisturbed by other visitors.

Cruise by the floating homes of Tonlé Sap

Connected to the Mekong river system, the vast freshwater lake of Tonlé Sap is lined along the shore by villages of stilted wooden houses. Two Amanbala lake boats cruise the waters, introducing Aman guests to one of Cambodia’s most rich and valuable ecosystems, and a way of life that has remained unchanged for centuries.

Please note that due to seasonal conditions, the cruise will not be operating from 1 May to 30 June.
