Raffles Grand Hotel d’ Angkor reopens following six-month restoration

 

First opened in 1932, widely celebrated as La Grande Dame de Angkor, the hotel has been welcoming discerning travellers and famous faces – from Charlie Chaplin to Jackie Kennedy and Michelle Obama - to the historic heart of Cambodia for over eighty years.

Beyond the refreshed façade that retains the colonial style synonymous with the heritage and history of the Raffles brand, all 119 rooms and suites have received a meticulous facelift. Warm, hardwood floors, lighter and brighter interiors, Segafredo coffee machines, USB charging stations and Simmons pillow-top mattresses are new features added to complement traditional ceiling fans and brass rotary telephones. All bathrooms have been extensively renovated and upgraded with new Italian tiling and rain showers some of which feature grand claw-foot tubs and views over Cambodia’s most iconic swimming pool.

Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor retains its old-world French colonial charm while introducing new levels of unrivalled luxury and comfort. The original teak and wrought iron cage elevator is carefully preserved as part of the original architecture to ferry guests up and down the heritage building.

Deemed the last bastion of Cambodia’s Golden Age of Travel, the hotel is deeply rooted in local culture; the restoration has retained its colonial charm, heritage, and architectural grandeur, yet still leads the way in answering the needs of today’s most discerning guest.

Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is situated a mere 20-minute drive to the doorway of the UNESCO Heritage temples of Angkor.
