“The two historic Raffles properties in Cambodia – Raffles Hotel Le Royal and Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor – are legendary the world over for their elegance and sophistication, and their warm and attentive personalised service.

Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is a stone’s throw from ancient Khmer archeological sites and is considered a national treasure. It was opened in 1932, and functioned as a rest stop for archeologists and adventurers seeking to explore Angkor Wat.

With the opening of the new Siem Reap Angkor International Airport on 16 October 2023, the hotel is anticipating more international events.

Cedrick Ragel, spokesperson at Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor said: “The historic properties of Raffles Cambodia, Raffles Hotel Le Royal & Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, are ideally positioned to be the first choice for international incentive groups, thanks to the new airports in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, which will allow larger aircraft to serve the location and give planners more options,” he said.

The historic hotel, set on 15 acres of its own grounds and with purpose-built event spaces, is the ideal setting for international business meetings as well. Its Raffles Marquee, offers 300 pax seating (maximum). The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Archeological Park can host off-site events of up to 1,000 pax in the Elephant Terrace.
