Avani Hotels & Resorts Enters Cambodia with FCC Angkor, the first renovated hotel in the FCC Collection
Now open – 60 Rooms
Located across from the Royal Independence Gardens and Royal Residence, FCC Angkor evokes the timelessness of Siem Reap for guests who want authentic experiences during their journey. The property 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. Their stories echo and permeate every corner of the FCC Angkor, encouraging visitors to embrace their inner global adventurer.
Centrally located, FCC Angkor - Managed by Avani is more than a social hub for Siem Reap. The town's many day and night markets, eclectic restaurants, and the popular Pub Street are all walking distance from the hotel. Angkor Wat, the internationally renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, encompassing 400 sq. km of ruins dating from the 12th - 15th century, is 10 minutes from the hotel. The Preah Ang Chek Prea Ang Chorm shrine, knows as the spiritual protection of Siem Reap, is a 3-minute stroll from the FCC along the river.
The hotel enhancements have perfectly blended the colonial structures with contemporary designs 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.
