A classic whose shine hasn’t dulled
Like its sister hotel in Phnom Penh, the FCC Angkor has become an iconic destination, either to stay at or as somewhere to come and enjoy a cocktail during the evening happy hour.
The look for the 29 rooms is contemporary, but with an undeniably romantic and stylish 70s feel about it too. Clean lines dominate, with geometric prints, parquet flooring, a huge bed and dark wood panels on white walls. Facilities include internet, flat screen TVs and spacious bathrooms. A romantic, well-shaded saltwater swimming pool sits as the centre of a lawn area and the full-service spa, while pricey, gets rave reviews. There’s also a Jacuzzi, a billiard room, and of course a large restaurant in the adjacent building open to the public. Breakfast is included in the price. It’s a former French governor’s mansion, and the simple, mid-century colonial design is subtly opulent. The design is slightly reminiscent of the nearby five-star Amansara hotel, formerly the king’s guesthouse. They say that the rates below are negotiable, depending upon occupancy.
