Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, part of the Accor friendliness team, resumes its doors to visitors on June 1, the very first time in practically three years. The heritage resort in Siem Reap, which first opened up in 1932, had closed for restorations as well as repairs in 2019. It was consequently influenced by the onset of the pandemic.
” It is a wonderful sensation to bring this enchanting hotel back to life,” says Dennis de Groot, the hotel’s general supervisor. “The Grand Hotel is a national prize, and also its fabled history is testimony to Cambodia’s colourful past.”

Repairs performed on the resort consist of a renovation of its exterior appearance, restored area insides as well as the addition of an occasions centre.
