Whether savouring authentic Khmer cuisine in the airy Restaurant with its lofty rotunda, breakfasting on the deck of a village house amidst the temples, or sipping a cocktail on the rooftop terrace, Amansara offers both guests and non-residents one of a kind dining experiences revealing Cambodia’s multifaceted culinary heritage.
The striking centrepiece of Amansara, the circular Restaurant opens onto two terraces – one overlooking verdant lawns and the other the main swimming pool. The all-day menu includes both traditional Khmer and Western cuisines, and guests are free to help themselves from the walk-in cheese and wine cellar, and the freshly baked cake selection in the elegant lounging area.
Khmer Village House
Set in a garden within the Angkor World Heritage Site, Amansara’s Khmer Village House is a traditional stilted abode overlooking the 10th-century royal reservoir of Srah Srang. An inspiring and culturally immersive setting, it is ideal for lazy breakfasts after exploring the temples, hands-on cooking classes and romantic candlelit dinners cooked over charcoal to the accompaniment of live music.
A serene space surrounded by the treetops of Amansara’s forested boundary, the Roof Terrace offers a seasonal venue for early or late evening drinks and private dinners. It is also a tranquil setting for yoga or quiet contemplation, especially at sunrise, followed by a private breakfast with birdsong the only soundtrack.
Board an Amanbala motorboat for a cruise of Tonlé Sap lake and a romantic breakfast picnic afloat among the stilted village homes of Chong Kneas. In the evening, dine on a five-course Cambodian feast in the 10th-century Angkor temple of Prasat Kravan, aglow with 1,000 candles.
From birthday festivities to anniversary dinners, Amansara is able to arrange exceptional gala dining and celebrations of all sizes.
