Raffles Grand Hotel of Angkor
Grand Hotel d’Angkor first opened its doors in 1932, providing what was then considered to be “luxury” accommodation for the first wave of travellers coming to see the famous Angkor Temples. Reopened in 1997 after an extensive restoration by Raffles, the hotel now offers the splendour of a bygone era to a new wave of travellers exploring all that Siem Reap has to offer.
Set in over 15 acres of beautifully-landscaped French gardens and built around its iconic swimming pools, the hotel provides a relaxing retreat from the temples and the bustling town of Siem Reap.
Step back in time as you take the original timber elevator to your room. The hotel offers accommodation, services and facilities in a relaxed atmosphere with Cambodian hospitality and Angkorian charm. Located in the best part of town, next to the Angkor National Museum and just a 15-minute drive from Siem Reap International Airport, it is only a short
walk along the river to the town centre, with its vibrant markets and trendy restaurants and bars.
