Thailand's Minor Hotels Group has signed the first Avani hotel in Cambodia.

Following an extensive US$7 million renovation, which includes the addition of 60 new rooms, the FCC Angkor – Managed by Avani hotel will reopen its doors in the second quarter of 2019.

Located across from the Royal Independence Gardens and Royal Residence, the FCC Angkor centres around the former ‘Mansion’ of the French colonial governor, which became the renowned Foreign Correspondence Club and a popular meeting place for local and international journalists, celebrities, and travellers from around the world seeking to explore Siem Reap.

The town’s many day and night markets, eclectic restaurants, and the popular Pub Street are all walking distance from the hotel. Angkor Wat, the internationally renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, encompassing 400 sq. km of ruins dating from the 12th - 15th century, is 10 minutes from the hotel. The Preah Ang Chek Prea Ang Chorm shrine is a 3-minute stroll from the FCC along the river.
