Amansara- Spa & Resort

Amansara’s newly built spa has treatments aimed at enhancing both guests’ mental and physical wellbeing, and you will certainly need the latter if you climb enough temples each day.

Soothing reflexology sessions and specialised treatments like the ‘foot cooler’, a 45-minute peppermint scrub and massage ideal for temple-weary feet, are tailor-made to the needs of the clientele. Look out for the teap bourn treatment as well; it involves blind local therapists coming in to give you a 4-hands massage. What’s more, 20% of the treatment fee goes to a local charity that supports local orphans and the blind.

The Amansara is all about letting the outside world in, so spa treatments reflect holistic Khmer traditions and the 43metre long wall running alongside the reflection pool even recalls the bas reliefs of the temples, just so you remember where you are.

Adjacent is a dressing area with hanging cupboards and drawers. The lounge has a large sofa, and informal circular dining table and chairs. Beyond, and leading down a few steps, is the bathroom which opens onto a light-filled courtyard featuring a water garden and cushioned banquette. The bathroom contains twin vanities, makeup mirror, a large soaking tub and a separate shower and toilet. A floor-to-ceiling glass partition separates the toilet from the courtyard, letting in light and patio views. Each suite is air-conditioned, with ceiling fans, telephone (twin lines for Internet access)
