A birthday bash to remember at Prasat Kravan

Hanuman recently hosted a 60th birthday bash at the temple of Prasat Kravan in Angkor. This petite brick temple dates from the 10th century and was the perfect backdrop for this signature event. 40 guests were invited to join the celebrations and the evening included a fully-stocked cocktail bar, a seated dinner and a traditional dance performance. This was indeed a birthday party to remember.

Hanuman is able to organise these unique events at the temples due to our close relationship with the temple authorities. More recently we hosted Guerlain, the French cosmetics group, for a cocktail reception at Ta Som Temple, complete with ice sculptures and living statues reflecting the bas-reliefs.

Hanuman has a long tradition of organising signature events at Angkor for incentive groups and other MICE business. We have hosted the Young Presidents’ Organisation on their flagship visit to the Temples of Angkor. We looked after the Moet-Hennessey global leadership team on their visit here, including a signature Temple Safari. We also took care of the Harvard Business School Alumni on their discovery trip to the region.

Hanuman Films enjoys a close relationship with Apsara Authority who safeguard the temples, as we have coordinated dozens of successful film shoots over the years, taking care to ensure the integrity of these ancient buildings are not harmed during our work. From Tomb Raider to Two Brothers, from Pepsi commercials to National Geographic documentaries, we have brought them all to Angkor. Whether it is a special occasion such as a honeymoon or a birthday party, or a meeting for a leading company or organisation, Hanuman can arrange the impossible around Angkor. These little extras are what can make the difference between a good trip and a great trip, so let us know what we can do to ensure that your VIP clients experience greatness while exploring Angkor.
