Full of history and colonial style, the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is where the romance of Angkor Wat begins. Set across from the Royal Palace in the heart of Siem Reap in the Old French Quarter, the hotel is a first class destination embraced by 15 acres of beautifully landscaped French gardens. Guests will marvel in the old-world Cambodian grandeur infused with all of the modern conveniences and amenities that make this former home of royalty a true King of Hotels today.
The Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is the oldest building in Siem Reap and has been beautifully restored and supplemented with Raffles class. Guests enter classic lifts equipped with uniformed attendants, double gates, and wood doors then walk down glamorous Art Deco black-and-white tiled halls to their luxurious rooms. High ceilings, wooden floors, marble bathrooms, crafted four-poster beds dressed in custom-made Cambodian linens, and private balconies grace each room. The site’s 18 exclusive suites boast his-and-hers bathrooms, Bose sound systems, and private terraces. Families will appreciate the two villas onsite, marked by Angkorian artifacts, Persian-style carpets, a full pantry, wine cellar, and 24-hour personal butler service.
Stroll through the Royal Crusade for Independence Gardens, a fan-shaped park that extends from the hotel to the main road and serves as a home to more than 20,540 different species of tropical plants. Inspired by the ancient royal bathing pools of Angkor, the massive emerald green pool located in the inner gardens of the hotel is also a sight to behold. After exploring the nearby temples, guests can treat themselves to a little indulgence at the Raffles spa or shopping at one of the many bijou boutiques at the hotel, including the McDermott Gallery, home to a definitive collection of fine art photographs of Angkor by John McDermott, hailed as “the Ansel Adams of Angkor.”
Restaurants combine the best of local culture and cuisine with dishes from around the world. From exotic Royal Khmer cuisine at Restaurant Le Grand and afternoon tea at The Conservatory, to champagne breakfast at Café d’Angkor and pan-Asian barbecue amidst majestic performances of Cambodian dance and Khmer martial art – there is a stunning selection from which to choose. For a truly romantic experience, take a candlelit dinner for two by the pool, or arrange for an unforgettable dinner at one of the temples of Angkor.
The hotel is only a short drive to the famed Angkor Wat temple, as well as the main market center and other town attractions, making it the perfect place to explore this fascinating spiritual destination.Request Information
