Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, a landmark hotel along the legendary Grand Tour of Indochina, has officially reopened following an extensive 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 80 years.
Beyond the refreshed facade 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.
