For over 75 years, a visit to the ancient Angkor temples has been synonymous, to many, with a stay at Raffles. Now carefully restored, the hotel’s renewed elegance, modernity and location makes it one of the most popular places to stay in Siem Reap.
The rooms and suites at Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor have been meticulously restored to their former glory, with many of the original features such as the 1930s Art Deco furnishings and claw-footed baths retained and enhanced.

Unobtrusive Raffles butlers are on hand round the clock to ensure that you have everything you could possibly need.
Dining at Raffles is an experience in itself - enjoy a relaxed al fresco barbecue, a formal fine dining experience or even a cultural show and buffet - options abound and the indulgent in-room dining available is also a great way to enjoy a peaceful, private dinner. The hotel's Elephant Bar is not to be missed - its signature cocktail being an exotic mix of rum with the tropical flavors of coconuts, bananas, pineapple and lime.
For relaxation, the Raffles Amrita Spa combines Western technologies and Eastern therapies and is equipped with five private massage rooms, a state of the art gym and Jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms. A highlight of the hotel is the stunning thirty-five meter lap pool in the hotel’s inner gardens.

When to go
Cambodia is hot all year round and the best time to visit is during the dry season, which runs from November to April. It starts to get wetter in May and the wettest months are September and October. It is still possible to visit during this time as rain usually falls as short sharp storms. November is a fantastic month to visit Cambodia as it is very green after the rainy season and the lakes and rivers are full of water.
