Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor

Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor | Siem Reap, Cambodia

Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor

The historic Raffles d’Angkor is an immaculate hotel set in the heart of Siem Reap. Almost 100 years old, it has been extensively renovated and today stands as one of Siem Reap’s most extravagant resorts.

Among the oldest and most luxurious hotels in Siem Reap, Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor dates back to 1932 and takes pride of place at the centre of town, secluded within its own private gardens. Like its sister hotel, Raffles Phnom Penh, Raffles d’Angkor has a distinctly colonial aesthetic, though it also incorporates a unique blend of Khmer and French Art Deco interior décor.

Some will find aspects of Raffles’ presentation a bit excessive—you’re paying for the beautifully-furnished rooms at Raffles, but you’re also paying for features such as private butler service which may not be wanted. Colonial-era relics, including an old wrought-iron 1930s elevator in the lobby, have been retained for character rather than convenience, and are a reminder of the age of the hotel, though the rooms are equipped with all the up-to-date amenities that you would expect from a hotel of this category. Raffles isn’t as slick and modern as, say, the Park Hyatt Siem Reap, but it has more character.

The facilities at Raffles include a huge swimming pool framed by frangipani trees, a fully-equipped spa, fitness centre and a selection of restaurants and bars.

Accommodation

Raffles’ 119 rooms and suites are split between its two wings. All blend colonial charm, reflecting the hotel’s nearly 100 year-long history, with modern facilities and furnishings. Room amenities include air-conditioning, in-room safe, direct dial phone, tea and coffee making facilities, cable TV, Wi-Fi and minibar.

All of the rooms, including the standard rooms, are generously sized. There are a selection of very plush—and very pricey!—suites and state rooms, and also a family villa.

Dining

The Restaurant Le Grand showcases the best of Khmer and European food while the Café d’Angkor serves lighter dishes on its terrace or indoors. Snacks are also served on the Poolside Terrace.

No visit to the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is complete without a drink at the famous Elephant Bar, a local landmark. Afternoon tea is served in the Conservatory.
