Siem Reap, Cambodia

Staying at

Amansara

+

Located in north western Cambodia, Siam Reap is world-renowned for the ancient Angkor Wat Temple complex - Cambodia’s World Heritage Temples. Regarded as the gateway to the ancient world these magnificent relics, including the Bayon Temple and Angkor Thom, provide a tantalising glimpse into the scale and majesty of the mighty Khmer Kingdom and Empire which ruled between the 9th-15th centuries. In addition to its historical treasures, the city boasts pretty tree-lined roads, scenic lakes and fascinating culture. Visitors can explore the city by bicycle, visit the Angkor National Museum, visit colourful local markets, enjoy Phare The Cambodian Circus, or take an excursion to Tonle Sap lake to witness the traditional floating fishing villages with stilted overwater homes.

Whilst staying at Amansara, the former guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk, guests can visit the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage Site at dawn, enjoy a traditional breakfast within a Khmer Village House, observe a Jasmine Blessing with a Buddhist Monk, cycle the pretty streets and indulge in the rich culture and history of Cambodia. From vibrant traditional dance performances to delicious local cuisine and engaging community projects, your expert guides will ensure that you are completely enthralled by Siem Reap.


Highlights

Laos is a quaint and beautifully preserved city - designated a UNESCO World Heritage Town - boasting a former Royal Palace, museum, waterfalls and orange-robed Buddhist monks going about their daily business. It is a wonderful antidote to today's modern cities and face-paced life, providing a refreshing mountain retreat.

Vietnam

Staying at

Amanoi

+

Vietnam is an extraordinarily varied and beautiful country and a luxury Vietnam holiday offers you a chance to explore not only its cultural and historical past but also its spectacular scenery filled with endless stretches of white-sand beaches and shimmering paddy fields. Exotic Asian influences sit against a backdrop of French-Colonial splendour in the sophisticated and prosperous capital, Hanoi. Ho Chi Minh City also retains the allure of centuries past, when Saigon was described as the 'Pearl of the Far East'. Here, you'll find skyscrapers juxtaposed with faded French-Colonial buildings and a myriad of street markets, shops, pavement cafés, stands-on-wheels and vendors selling wares spread out on the pavements. Other regional attractions include Da Nang, home to some of Vietnam's, most beautiful and isolated beaches, the stunning Marble Mountains, pilgrimage sites, caves and Buddhist shrines, Hoi An the well-preserved port town showcasing a profusion of cultures, plus the southern island of Con Doa with unspoilt beaches, coral reefs and infamous prison past.

Highlights

Relax near the popular coastal resort of Nha Trang and explore a country of rich contrasts. Indulge within Amanoi's impressive spa, enjoying a one-hour signature massage, try a private Tai Chi class, embark on a Vietnamese cooking class, or trek within the outstanding Nui Chua National Park.

Staying at

Amanoi

+

For their first venture into Vietnam, Aman have selected a breathtakingly, exquisite site. Amano’i is situated on a mountainous promontory of the Nui Chua National Park, overlooking Vinh Hy Bay. The feeling of being far, far away, like the panoramic views of the sea and coastline, is ever present. Individual guest pavilions and villas are strategically placed, ensuring plenty of privacy; typically Aman they exude contemporary restraint, all clean lines, sanded wood and dark marble with an open-plan living and sleeping area, floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor sundecks complete with sun-loungers (some with plunge pools large enough to swim in). The Central Pavilion houses the Main Lodge restaurant, there’s an expansive terrace and cliff-top pool – another one can be found at the Beach Club – whilst the Aman spa is set apart by its own tranquil lake. Other facilities include a spacious gym, two tennis courts and both running and trekking routes.
