The DNA: The Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor in Cambodia has reopened following an extensive restoration. First opened in 1932 and widely celebrated as the Grande Dame of Angkor, the hotel has been welcoming discerning travellers and famous faces – from Charlie Chaplin to Jackie Kennedy and Michelle Obama. Beyond the refreshed façade that retains the colonial style synonymous with the heritage and history of the Raffles brand, all 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. Bathrooms too, have been extensively renovated and upgraded with new Italian tiling and rain showers some of which feature grand claw-foot tubs and views over the iconic swimming pool. The hotel’s new signature restaurant serves a take on Cambodian cuisine with an innovative interplay of traditional ingredients and progressive cooking methods. Guests may choose to complete their experience with Sipsmith’s Raffles 1915 Gin in the swish Elephant Bar or enjoy traditional Afternoon Tea in the colonial-style Conservatory.
