Raffles Cambodia Appoints Andrew Hartley Cluster Director of Sales & Marketing

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (Aug. 7, 2023) — Raffles Hotels & Resorts has appointed Andrew Hartley as its new cluster director of sales and marketing, overseeing two of Southeast Asia’s most iconic luxury hotels: Raffles Hotel Le Royal and Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor.

Hartley, who is based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, brings more than 20 years of experience in luxury hotels around the world, including in Thailand, Singapore, Australia, China, Vietnam, the United Kingdom and Oman. He was most recently assistant vice president of strategic sales and marketing for Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts in the Asia-Pacific based in Singapore.

He was also previously the regional director of sales and marketing for Sofitel luxury hotels in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Before that, Hartley was director of sales and marketing for Sofitel Shanghai Jing’an Huamin in China and Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi in Vietnam.

“The two historic Raffles properties in Cambodia – Raffles Hotel Le Royal and Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor – are legendary the world over for their elegance and sophistication, and their warm and attentive personalized service. I look forward to being a part of these hotels as they continue to set the benchmark for luxury hospitality in Southeast Asia and beyond,” Hartley said.

Raffles Hotel Le Royal, situated in Cambodia’s vibrant capital, Phnom Penh, originally opened in 1929 and today features 175 rooms and suites that underwent a full refurbishment as part of a meticulous one-year restoration project in 2019.

Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is on the doorstep of ancient Khmer archeological sites in Cambodia and is considered a national treasure. Originally opened in 1932, the hotel was built as a rest stop for archeologists and adventurers seeking to explore the ancient kingdom of Angkor Wat, which is today one of the most popular UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The two Raffles hotels in Cambodia have won numerous top international awards and distinctions this year. Raffles Hotel Le Royal was voted the No. 1 hotel in Cambodia by readers of Condé Nast Traveler in its annual Readers’ Choice Awards in October, and Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor was named one of the world’s “500 Best Hotels” by Travel + Leisure in April.

The properties were also honored at the prestigious Travel + Leisure Luxury Awards Asia Pacific 2023, earning recognition in multiple categories including for top city hotels, general managers, hotel spas and hotel pools.
