Avani Hotels & Resorts has announced its entry into the Cambodian market with the launch of FCC Angkor – Managed by Avani.
Following an extensive seven million USD renovation which includes the addition of 60 new rooms, the hotel is set to reopen its doors in the second quarter of 2019.
The FCC Angkor is one of Cambodia’s best-known hotels and features authentic French colonial architecture intrinsic to the historic and cultural fabric of Siem Reap.
Located across from the Royal Independence Gardens and Royal Residence, FCC Angkor centres around the former ‘Mansion’ of the French colonial governor, which became the renowned Foreign Correspondence Club and a popular meeting place for local and international journalists, celebrities, and travellers from around the world seeking to explore Siem Reap.
The hotel enhancements are inspired by Cambodia’s natural beauty and Khmer culture, which extend across the pedestrian bridge to the newly built extension. Throughout the property, the exotic environment of verdant gardens, Khmer-inspired contemporary art, and exclusive European design accents create a sophisticated, residential feel, a signature concept for the heritage property.
Along with the new and refurbished rooms and suites, FCC Angkor has updated and expanded its facilities. A brand-new bar called Scribe now complements the Mansion’s renovated restaurant, where guests can now experience relaxed, personalised service whether sipping a refreshing signature cocktail or dining on authentic Cambodian cuisine featuring fresh, local ingredients.
Other additions include a spa, pool, and lounge – spacious and breezy, surrounded by colourful, fragrant greenery, where guests can enjoy a drink, mingle, and chat.
