- Expertly Crafted
- Peace of Mind
Opened in 1929, Raffles Hotel Le Royal sits on a quiet, tree-lined avenue a few minutes walk from some of Phnom Penh’s main attractions. Blending Khmer, art deco and French colonial style, this grand property in Cambodia reflects the golden age of travel and exudes an ambience of relaxed refinement.
The rooms and suites reflect a bygone era with high ceilings, antiques and original artworks, and opulent en-suites with clawfoot bathtubs.
The restaurants offer Royal Khmer and international cuisine, while the Apsara Terrace holds nightly live music and dance performances during dinner. The colonial-era Elephant Bar serves great cocktails, including the Femme Fatale, concocted for Jackie Kennedy.
Wat Phnom, the Royal Palace and Riverside are a few minutes walk away, with many other sites a short tuk-tuk ride away. Alternatively, enjoy the two swimming pools or indulge in a Le Royal signature Khmer massage.
