A history of hospitality… An artistic statement of Khmer, Art Deco and French style, the Hotel Le Royal originally welcomed its first guests in 1929. It reopened as Raffles Hotel Le Royal after a sympathetic extension and refurbishment in 1997. To protect the hotel’s natural heritage, local artisans were commissioned to create painted ceilings, decorative beaten copper crests and outdoor sculptures.
Raffles is built around a central private courtyard with two swimming pools surrounded by frangipani-lined tropical gardens.
Raffles is very much part of the history of Phnom Penh. Its walls are adorned with photos capturing much of that history, and yet the hotel welcomes, as it has always done, travellers to this oasis in bustling Phnom Penh.
Raffles is at the heart of the city, only 30 minutes’ drive from Phnom Penh International Airport, 5 minutes from Mekong River Cruise wharf and within easy access of the city’s attractions such as the Royal Palace, Central Market, Russian Market and riverfront walk.
