Dating back to 1929, the Raffles Hotel has seen Phnom Penh mature and develop around it, whilst still keeping its stately elegance.
In its pivotal location at Phnom Penh’s centre, the Raffles has seen many notable guests walk its tranquil hallways, from writers and journalists to royalty and dignitaries. Some of its distinguished guests have had suites named after them such as Jacqueline Kennedy or Charles De Gaulle.
From the sweeping driveway that leads to the refurbished and expanded hotel building set around private gardens and palm trees, the hotel oozes old-world colonial splendour. In keeping with its local settings, Khmer elements have been blended harmoniously such as the wafting scent of lemongrass from flickering candles, and a traditional Khmer massage which focuses on the pressure points of the Oriental Meridian line.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Phnom Penh into a greater Cambodian holiday. Take a look at Siem Reap in a Weekend as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
