First opening its doors in 1932, the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor still possesses an unmistakable air of timeless elegance. Its gleaming white façade makes an immediate impression. Step over the threshold and you’ll find cool hallways lined with rich wood panelling and verdant palm-shaded grounds laid out around a shimmering central pool.
The hotel’s rooms and suites draw inspiration from the region’s colonial past, with classical features including polished wooden floors and hand-carved furniture, embellished with flashes of vibrant Cambodian silk. Take your pick from a Landmark Room with its gleaming marble bathroom and balcony overlooking the grounds, or opt for more space in a Colonial Suite. For a truly unique stay, choose from one of the four Personality Suites, each inspired by a historical figure with connections to Angkor, or luxuriate in a Raffles Suite King, with a shady terrace opening directly onto the gardens and pool.
The hotel’s proximity to Angkor Wat makes it a popular spot for cultural adventurers, but the UNESCO World Heritage Complex is only one of the highlights within easy reach. Located in the historic French Quarter of Siem Reap, the surrounding streets are packed with shrines, temples, bustling markets and street food vendors. There’s also the Angkor National Museum, situated directly next door to the hotel.
Just as much variety can be found within the Grand Hotel’s walls, with a generous selection of cafés, bars and restaurants catering to every taste. Sample royal Khmer cuisine like Sihanoukville soft shell crab with mango salad at the elegant 1932 restaurant, or enjoy contemporary pan-Asian dishes at Café d’Angkor. Sink into a leather sofa in the refined Elephant Bar and sip a signature Grand d’Angkor Sling (made of Cointreau, galangal syrup and cherry brandy) or relax at the water’s edge with light bites and cool drinks on the poolside terrace.
