Raffles Hotels & Resorts has appointed Dennis de Groot as acting GM for two of its Cambodian properties: Raffles Hotel Le Royal in Phnom Penh and Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor in Siem Reap.

The hospitality stalwart joins with more than 15 years of industry experience, and held previous hotel management positions in the Maldives, Azerbaijan and South Africa, including nearly three years at a private game lodge.

De Groot joined the Accor Group in 2016 to oversee the rebranding of the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi into Raffles Maldives Meradhoo. He then moved to Cambodia in 2018 to take up the role of Hotel Manager at Raffles Hotel Le Royal, where he became acting general manager in January 2021 and oversaw the historical property's recent year-long restoration project.

In celebration of Cambodia's reopening to vaccinated international travellers without quarantine, Accor also recently launched its 'For the Love of Captivating Cambodia' campaign in hopes of inspiring travellers to explore the country’s renowned heritage sites and extensive array of experiences.
