The neo-colonial Siem Reap hotel now offers wellness facilities and greater choices for accommodation.
Repeat guests at FCC Angkor by Avani in Siem Reap’s former French-colonial quarter will find more reasons to stay longer on the grounds. The 80-room Cambodian property has just reopened following extensive renovations, with brand-new additions including an all-suite resort wing, the Khmer-inspired Visaya Spa, and a second saltwater swimming pool.
Three new room categories await at the hotel. The Family Suite boasts a banyan-shaded terrace, ideal for guests of all ages to relax and unwind, while the Garden Suite features a separate living room and a covered patio with a rattan dining set. Upstairs, the top-floor, 150-square-meter Riverview Suite boasts an expansive terrace equipped with a dining area and oversize soaking tub. All suites have been adorned with locally woven textiles and details alluding to the site’s onetime role as the Foreign Correspondents’ Club: think vintage typewriters and the framed front pages of regional newspapers.
As for Visaya Spa, guests in four treatment rooms overlooking a tranquil courtyard can choose from a menu comprising both Western and Asian massages as well as all-natural beauty treatments. Therapists will deliver contemporary takes on Khmer, Thai, and Ayurvedic wellness traditions, utilizing seasonal herbs and local ingredients such as onkuin seed and ginger. Next to the spa, a beauty salon offers manicures and pedicures, and the gift shop comes stocked with organic skin and body care products alongside a curated range of local souvenirs.
For Cambodians and expat residents, FCC Angkor by Avani has just launched a new staycation package starting at US$99 per room per night. Benefits include a complimentary upgrade to the next available room category, all-you-can-eat à la carte breakfasts for two; daily set lunch or dinner, also for two; not to mention early check-in from 10 a.m. and late checkout until 4 p.m. Those who book a suite category will also receive welcome cocktails.
