Two Raffles in Cambodia undergo refurbishment

The Raffles Hotel Le Royal, Phnom Penh and the Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, Siem Reap are currently undergoing refurbishments, scheduled to be completed by November 2011.

Opened in 1929 and 1932, respectively, the two hotels entered the Raffles portfolio in 1997 and are the only luxury hotels in Cambodia that pre-date the civil war and the Khmer Rouge era.

Both hotels are undergoing an update of selected guestrooms, suites, villas, meetings rooms and the hotel lobby of the Raffles Hotel Le Royal, which will incorporate French Colonial, Art Deco and Khmer elements. Cambodian silks, Khmer patterns, Art Deco colors, silverwork and wood craving done by local artists will be featured in both Raffles' properties.

More renovations are planned for both properties in 2012.
