Where old world, French colonial charm meets today’s happening new.
Surrounded by sacred, centuries-old trees and lush tropical flora, FCC Angkor sees 80 well-appointed, modern rooms with thoughtful Khmer touches––from artisanal textiles and handwoven rattan baskets to bespoke furnishings––a gleaming marble-tiled pool, holistic spa and wellness centre, multi-functional meeting rooms and serene green views in this historic mansion oasis and annex in the heart of Siem Reap, where the perpetual scent of lemongrass plants (homegrown by staff from nearby Tekvel Village) wafts through the air.
Centrally located along Pokambor Avenue and the languid Siem Reap River, nestled between Streets 02 and 03, FCC Angkor has been deeply embedded in the local community since 2003, mere steps from the Royal Independence Gardens and Royal Residence, and within short walking distance to the town’s Angkor Trade Centre and Central Market, a wide-range of culinary offerings and Pub Street, Siem Reap’s main thoroughfare. Angkor Wat, the sprawling 12th century temple complex known as the “Temple City,” is also ten minutes away—perfect for catching sunrise or sunset.
Formerly the residence of the French Governor, FCC Angkor is newly updated with design elements reflecting past and present, a warm inviting space inspired by its natural, jungle landscape laden with ruins and temples, the original intent of Gary Fell's tropical modernist aesthetic and its roots in French colonial history. Also housing The Mansion, a new restaurant concept and bar, this iconic institution serves locally-sourced, sustainable ingredients, reimagining time-tested comfort cuisine with a French twist, and bold, regional offerings with handcrafted cocktails and artisanal beers.
No matter where one enters, whether from the riverside, with the open grassy lawn and The Mansion straight ahead, or through the arrival sala on Street 03, immersed with cherry-picked palms, this remains an inviting and atmospheric gathering place accessible to all, transporting guests away from the stresses of everyday life. The main building continues with luxurious suites, spa rooms, a fully equipped gym, intimate nooks and terraces, spacious, communal lounges and ground floor's Scribe, an innovative Khmer grill with tapas and a full bar.
Also on-site is a stretch swimming pool and its Pool Restaurant & Bar, an essential stopover for temple trekkers and sun seekers looking for a quick bite, or a hideaway to spend lazing the afternoon away. Connected to The Mansion by a charming pedestrian bridge is FCC Angkor’s annexed addition, a continuation of the property's elegant design, combined with a decidedly contemporary edge.
