Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, the 92-year-old luxury hotel on the doorstep of ancient Khmer archeological sites in Siem Reap, Cambodia, has again been named one of the world’s ‘500 Best Hotels’ by Travel + Leisure.

The industry-leading, U.S.-based travel magazine honoured the iconic hotel in its prestigious ‘World’s Best Awards’, which are among the most coveted distinctions in the global hospitality industry. Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor made the list of best hotels for a third-straight year.

Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor originally opened in 1932 as a rest stop for archeologists and adventurers exploring the ancient kingdom of Angkor Wat.

General Manager Joseph Colina says:We see the same bold and enthusiastic spirit today among our guests who come here for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience these marvellous wonders.”

The hotel recently unveiled new a ‘Curated Journeys’ menu offering singular excursions including a ‘Bespoke Temple Dinner’ served by candlelight at the temple complex of Angkor; a ‘Lost Civilizations of Angkor by Vespa’ tour, where the ancient world meets the here-and-now; and ‘Meet the Elephants of Angkor’, a memorable visit to an elephant sanctuary where guests can get up close and personal with gentle giants; among others.

In addition to the Curated Journeys, a new onsite ‘Raffles Resort Program’ features seven distinctive experiences on the hotel grounds, including ‘The Untold Stories’, an encounter with Raffles’ resident historian to uncover the vestiges of the past through a history tour of the hotel; ‘Sommelier Sessions’ with the hotel’s resident sommelier; and more.

The hotel’s fine dining restaurant 1932 also recently launched a series of exclusive multi-course Khmer tasting menus—the first of their kind—offering diners a tantalizing introduction to the distinctive flavors of Cambodian cuisine.

Nearly all of the Grand Dame’s 119 guest rooms and suites were fully refurbished in an extensive, three-year renovation project that concluded in June 2022. One of the hotel’s most distinguished attributes—its classic metal and timber elevator in the lobby—remains, as does the vintage ambience of The Elephant Bar.
