Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor - Personality Suite

Personality Suite

While all Raffles rooms and suites have plenty of character, the Personality Suite permeates charm and individuality. Taking inspiration from illustrious figures who have marked local history, each of the four Personality Suites at Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is unique.

One honours Henri Mouhot, the 19th-century French explorer. Another, Louis Delaporte, collector of Khmer art. A third Personality Suite pays tribute to the life of Henri Marchal, involved in a great deal of local monument restoration. The fourth honours John Thomson, the first to photograph Angkor Wat in 1866. Containing original memorabilia connected to each historical figure, the suites are all located in the Heritage building.

A handcrafted four-poster bed fit for kings. A plush hand-woven rug beneath your feet. A magnificent claw-foot bathtub in the polished marble bathroom. Everything about the Personality Suite is special and luxurious. The wooden ceiling fans evoke days gone by. But the air-conditioning and free WiFi, as well as the widescreen TV, keep you rooted in the present.

After exploring the wonders of Angkor Wat, a relaxing daybed beckons you from the oversized balcony. Gaze out over the magnificent pool, drink in hand, and unwind. We’ll bring you a meal or a snack at any time of day or night via our in-room dining service. And your personal butler makes sure you have every comfort you need.

Henri Mouhot Suite
Henri Mouhot (1826–1861) was a French naturalist and explorer who is said to have rediscovered the wonders of Angkor. Although some argue that Angkor was never lost, it cannot be denied that Mouhot introduced the West to the architectural prowess of the Khmer civilisation. His detailed and evocative writings and sketches nourished curiosity and enlightened Western audiences. "At Ongcor, there are ruins of such grandeur that, at the first view, one is filled with profound admiration, and cannot but ask what has become of this powerful race, so civilised, so enlightened, the authors of these gigantic works?"
Louis Delaporte Suite
Thanks to his drawing skills, Louis Delaporte (1842–1925) was chosen to accompany the French Mekong Exploration Commission on their expedition along the Mekong River between 1866 and 1873. So taken was he by the splendours he witnessed at Angkor Wat, he devoted the remainder of his life to Khmer art. “The sight of these strange ruins struck me, too, with a keen astonishment, I admired the bold and grandiose design of these monuments no less than the perfect harmony of all their parts.”
Henri Marchal Suite
Henri Marchal (1876-1970) was appointed Curator of Angkor in 1919. He devoted his life to the excavation, restoration and conservation of the temples and monuments of Cambodia, in particular Angkor Wat and Banteay Srei. Upon retirement, he settled in Siem Reap, where he lived until he passed away at the age of 93. “My desire is not to impose my opinions on any one, especially with regard to the wonderful architectural remains which I have visited, but simply to disclose the existence of these monuments, which are certainly the most gigantic, and also to my mind display a more perfect taste than any left to us by the ancients; and, moreover, to collect all the facts and traditions possible about these countries, hoping they may be useful to explorers of greater talent and fortune.”
John Thomson Suite
In 1866, inspired by the work of Henri Mouhot, Scottish scholar-photographer John Thomson (1837-1921) embarked on an expedition to the Cambodian jungle. Two weeks were spent at Angkor, where he undertook the not-so-simple task of documenting the monumental site, providing us with the earliest existing photos of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
