Experience the peace and solitude of Cambodia

Locked in a powerful battle between the forces of nature the Ta Prohm monastery in Cambodia is a masterpiece of Gothic beauty. Here a natural silence speaks volumes. It tells the tale of a long forgotten history. A history that saw temple inhabitants exiled and the temple left unattended and uncared for. Left to fend for itself, neighbouring trees began to penetrate the temple walls and foundations eventually permeating themselves into the temple’s architecture. This symbiotic relationship of nature and ancient masonry is a perfect example of the irony that is Cambodia. This iconic beauty is reason many consider this place to be one of the most beautiful habitats of all the luxury travel destinations in the world. A small peaceful country in Southeast Asia, Cambodia borders Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. Ironically its sometimes violent past has been replaced with an embracing of the body, mind and spirit. Most of its current inhabitants practice some form of Buddhism. Minutes away from these massive stone carved temples, nestled deep in this natural habitat is Amansara luxury resort. The resort was created by King Norodom Sihanouk in the sixties for entertaining many dignitaries and celebrities. Several transformations later it is one of the most sought after luxury resorts and spas in the world . A private garden compound, this 24 suite luxury resort with 12 pool side suites has the comfort and ambiance of a private home while it is ideally located for those wishing to explore Khmer culture and the ancient ruins of Angkor mere minutes away. Open concepts, glassed walls and finishing’ of terrazzo and timber adds a modern feel to this ecological fortress. Its peaceful serenity reminds you that sometimes luxury is found not in what you do but how it makes you feel. For the more adventurous type the resort offers custom fitted remorks with driver for guided tours of the nearby temples, yoga classes, swimming and magnificent spas treatments. Just like home the resort offers a variety of both Asian and Western cuisine. Cambodia is definitely worth a second thought! Jacque Busby is the CEO of Luxe Travel Deals.
