Our History

Amiral
From Old French amirail, amiral, from Arabic أَمِير اَلْبَحْر‏ (ʾamīr al-baḥr, commander of the fleet).

Once a family home, the owners then built and opened a small guesthouse in Siem Reap abd year by year they expanded, built on and re-opened to what is now a 34 room boutique hotel.  Their passion is to be a place of community for guests, staff and the local area.

2005

Amiral Hotel owners build a family home and small guest house.

 

2006

Owners decide to expand and build a few more rooms and soon little patters of feet run around as they build a family also.

 

2012

Isn't this the best history timeline you have ever read! Further building to 34 rooms, but the owner decides to let out the hotel.

 

2017

The owner decides to take back control of the hotel, re-naming it to the Amiral Hotel and managing the hotel themselves.
