Centrally located in Siem Reap alongside the river, the hotel's ideal position just walking distance from the town's old market and a short ride away from the famous Angkor Wat temples makes it the perfect choice for travellers looking to revitalise both body and soul. Echoing the same Zen-like marriage of environmental harmony, heritage conservation and modern luxury for which the FCC Angkor has become renowned, the very essence of this new hotel is reflected in its naming of each room after traditional Cambodian herbs and spices.

Hidden from view amidst the placidity of mature trees and aromatic gardens both pool and garden view guest rooms and suites at the FCC Angkor hotel reflect the cutting edge, minimalist style for which architect and designer, Gfab, is recognised. Generously proportioned and abundant in natural light, room interiors draw carefully upon a restful colour palette of refined neutral tones which, accented by the textures of authentic traditional Cambodian fabrics and bespoke furnishings, creates a seemingly effortless yet discernable sophistication. Adding to the comfort, specially selected natural botanic spa amenities sooth the senses whilst uncompromising in room facilities such as broadband internet connectivity, flat screen televisions and DVD players, ensure that the outside world is never too far away. The hotel encompasses a stunning outdoor pool and boutique spa treatment centre. Utilising only natural ingredients including fresh herbs and aromatic flowers grown on the hotel ground's, the Visaya Spa offers a range of holistic therapies and massages including the signature Hot Stone Harmony Massage.

Angkor hotel presents guests with the opportunity to experience world class cuisine in a thoroughly unique setting. The stylishly casual FCC Angkor restaurant and bar offers a variety of dining options throughout the day from freshly baked breakfast pastries through light and healthy lunches to innovative gourmet evening meals.

Comments Anthony Alderson, Director of FCC Cambodia parent company Indochina Assets Ltd (IAL), "Similar to our restaurant and bar, the FCC Angkor hotel has required meticulous effort to ensure that it fulfils the requirements of today's discerning traveller without cost to the preservation of the site.
