Top 5: Favourite hotel experiences in Asia (part 3)

A private plunge pool = pure luxury!

Amansara – Siem Reap, Cambodia

From the ‘we only got to stay there cos it was free’ files – our foray into the uber-chic world of Aman Resorts. Rooms at Amansara (a former royal guesthouse) can cost over US$1,200 a night, and former guests include Brangelina and brood. Our room had a zen-like minimalist style with Asian touches (think chanting monk music and incense), a standalone bathtub, rainforest shower, free mini-bar with full-size bottles, no tv (purposefully) and best of all, our own plunge pool. I did not want to leave – as you can imagine!!! Oh except to visit the restaurant (with its cool round ceiling) to eat gourmet food, sample the wine and cheese on offer, and have afternoon tea with cakes fresh from the oven and design books to browse…
