Description of Raffles Grand D’Angkor hotel
Located in the heart of Siem Reap, Raffles Grand Hotel D’Angkor is only eight kilometres from the famed Angkor Wat, and eight kilometres from Siem Reap International Airport. It is within five minutes drive of the main market centre and other town attractions.
Raffles Grand D’Angkor hotel
Siem Reap is a town located six kilometres south of the Angkor complex of temples. It is an area which has lodging closest to the dozens of temples that are scattered throughout the large expanse of jungle and fields to the north.
The renewed interest in Angkor and the increased accessibility to the sites have spurred considerable development in the town of Siem Reap. However, this has not diminished its charm as one of the centres of Khmer culture and tradition.
– State Rooms
The State rooms are located in the new wing of the hotel and provide a comfortable balance of modernity and classical elegance. They are available with a choice of pool view or a view of the lush green expanse adjacent to the hotel.
Landmark rooms, located in the Main Building, are furnished with a luxurious blend of Cambodian and art-deco themes. Decorated with memorabilia and artefacts reminiscent of the Golden Age of Travel, the Angkorian ambience is completed with wooden floors, marble bathrooms and crafted four-poster beds. Rooms are available that look out onto the pool or onto the Royal Crusade for Independence Gardens – the hotel’s 60,000 square metres of lush, landscaped French gardens.
– Studio Junior Suites
Studio Junior Suites were created for guests on longer stays and who prefer a more residential feel. They are currently fitted with ergonomically designed workstations, full pantry facilities and superior stereo systems. Studio Junior Suites are located in the new wing of the hotel, and both king-size bed and twin-bedded suites are available.
– Personality Junior Suites
Four specially created Personality Junior Suites take their direction from people who have been closely associated with Angkor. Prized memorabilia and original artefacts, the results of extensive research, are some of the well-loved items in the Personality Suites. The suites are named after well-known luminaries such as Henri Mouhot, John Thomson, Louis Delaporte and Henri Marchal. The four suites are located in the centre of the Main Building and look out onto a pool that is modelled after Angkorian royal bathing ponds. The suites also come with an original claw-footed bathtub, a private balcony and are all fitted with a king-size bed.
– Cabana Suites
The newly renovated Cabana Suites measures 70-square meters each. The suites are decorated in French-Indochina style while retaining the hotel’s original character and charm by using local accents, such as custom-made Cambodian linens and silks, rich drapery and leather furnishings. The sense of luxury extends seamlessly to the bathrooms, with separate showers and claw-footed baths. Each suite also features wireless internet access and high-tech entertainment modules.
All Cabana Suites have generously-sized private terraces with day beds and chaise loungers and provide easy access to the Kingdom’s largest pool, which replicates the ancient bathing pools of the Khmer kings at Phimeanakas. From the terraces, residents can enjoy views of the hotel’s exotic gardens, lush with tropical trees and flowers
– Two-Bedroom Villa Suites
The two Villa Suites have stylish resort decor and are ideal for residents who prefer more space and privacy. Villa Uma and Villa Kama are located in the hotel’s inner gardens and offer an uninterrupted view of the swimming pool.
