Raffles le Royal

Phnom Penh | Deluxe

Sister hotel to the renowned Raffles in Singapore, the Le Royal is located in the heart of Phnom Penh, just yards from Wat Phnom - the founding place of the city - and within easy reach of many other key attractions, such as the Royal Palace and Central Market.

Reopened in 1997, after careful restoration and refurbishment, this is one of Cambodia’s most characterful properties (challenged only by sister property Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor in Siem Reap). The sweeping driveway and grand exterior lead to an elegant reception area of high ceilings and highly-polished floors, immediately bringing to mind the hotel’s opulent history and Hollywood-style glamour.

The guestrooms and suites are a blend of traditional Cambodian design and Colonial-era influences. Rich, dark wooden floors and furniture are complemented by ornate rugs and carved details. Deco-esque sunburst motifs sit alongside traditional Cambodian artefacts and sketches of the Angkor temples and endemic flora. Elegant claw-foot baths stand alone in the stylish marble bathrooms. Louvre doors open out onto private terraces overlooking either the quiet pool terrace or out across the busy city.

There is a wide selection of restaurants, from casual cuisine at Café Monivong to fine dining at the Restaurant Le Royal, which also serves an extravagant Weekend Brunch complete with oysters, cocktails and champagne. Watch a showcase of traditional Cambodian dance on the Apsara terrace alongside a sunset pan-Asian barbeque buffet.

Finish the evening with a glance back in time enjoying a Jacqueline Kennedy-inspired cocktail in the evocative Elephant Bar. Top-class facilities, stunning fittings and the level of service you expect from any Raffles property make this the choice property in Phnom Penh.
