Grand Hotel d’Angkor

A letter sent from the Grand Hotel D’Angkor in 1933


Angkor Wat (or Angkor Vat) - the legendary temple complex at Angkor in the Kingdom of Cambodia, was built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation—first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist.
The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s prime attraction for visitors.

At Angkor Wat - like around the pyramids in Egypt - virtually every hotel management group of note has established a (sometimes historic) hotel. The Grand Hotel is one of the few buildings in Cambodia to have survived the Khmer Rouge regime, becoming one of the country’s most historical buildings.

Since 1931, a visit to the ancient Angkor temples has been synonymous with a stay at the Grand Hotel d’Angkor. Now sensitively restored, the hotel is under the wings of Raffles International and shines in renewed elegance and modernity.
