For those of you heading into Siem Reap for the festival, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes for accommodation. As the major tourist hub of Cambodia, there are guesthouses and hotels aplenty.

We’re taking the time here to shine the spotlight on our Preferred Accommodation Partners. They’ve been very generous in supporting the festival, and we’d like people to know more about them!

Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor

The Raffles has been a friend of the festival for several years. This year, the riverside gardens of the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor will host the Opening Night of the festival. Don’t forget to come back in the daytime to check out the two exhibitions in the gardens by Greenpeace International and Lam Duc Hien/ Médecins du Monde!

Since the early 1930s, a visit to the ancient temples of Angkor has been synonymous with a stay at Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor. Located in the heart of Siem Reap, a mere 8 kilometres away from the majestic Angkor Wat, this leading Siem Reap luxury hotel offers convenient access to some of the most intriguing ruins of the temple complex.

FCC Angkor  

Over the years, hundreds of festival visitors have sat down under the night sky on the grassy lawn of the FCC Angkor for our evening slideshow programmes. This year, 6 out of the 8 evening slideshow projections will be once again hosted at the FCC Angkor!

The FCC Angkor sits at the heart of Siem Reap Town, overlooking the Siem Reap River and just minutes away from Cambodia’s most alluring attraction, Angkor Wat. Renovated from the old French Governor’s mansion, art deco embraces chic hotel, creating an atmosphere of refined luxury and casual elegance. Defined by its lush green gardens and the salt-water swimming pool, the FCC Angkor embodies Cambodia’s tranquil pace of life: a casual swim, drinks in the garden, dinner on the terrace.

The 1961 Creative Hotel

The 1961 is hosting two of our exhibitions this year – Against All Odds by Andri Tambunan, the winner of the 2011 Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant, as well as Journey to Jerusalem of Africa by Gali Tibbon.

In the purest sense of the word, The 1961 is not a hotel, but a creative space where one can stay and immerse into a world of artists, poets, musicians and writers. Not only do they allow guests to indulge in the artists worlds, they also encourage them to take part in the process of the creation of the room as a living art space. Eight different rooms present itself as mini galleries that host individual spaces of artistry from curated beddings, hand printed pillow cases, book-filled shelves, and walls riddled with literary musings. A movie and music specialist changes the selections everyday.
