Cambodia Investment Review

In a move that blends luxury hospitality with cultural celebration, Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, a landmark of luxury at the heart of Cambodia’s historical treasures, has launched a distinctive ‘Khmer Afternoon Tea’ for March, marking International Women’s Month. This initiative is not just a nod to the country’s rich culinary legacy but also a tribute to the female artisans in Siem Reap, renowned for their significant contributions to the local culture and economy.

Set against the backdrop of Cambodia’s ancient Khmer archaeological sites, the hotel is offering this exclusive tea service throughout March. It features a curated selection of traditional delicacies, balancing sweet and savoury flavours that pay homage to Cambodia’s extensive culinary heritage. The initiative is particularly noteworthy as it shines a spotlight on the pivotal role of women artisans in the region.

 A Unique Celebration Of Cambodian Heritage

The Khmer Afternoon Tea is a collaborative effort with MANAVA, a local social enterprise dedicated to producing exquisite accessories and homeware crafted from locally sourced rattan. This partnership is emblematic of a deeper commitment to the community, as a portion of the proceeds from the tea service will support families in Krobey Riel Village, Siem Reap.

Accompanying these bite-sized treats is a selection of premium teas and coffees, rounding out an experience that is as indulgent as it is culturally enriching.
