Raffles Hotel le Royal

5 star
Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Hotel Overview

Insider's View

  • Order a Femme Fatale - named after former guest Jackie Onassis - in the colonial style Elephant Bar.
  • Ride on local 3-wheeler tuk-tuk ‘taxi’ to fully enjoy the good-natured, somewhat anarchic traffic. 
  • Book a traditional Khmer Massage in the spa - a healing therapy, where the body is manipulated into positions described as "passive stretching" - working on pressure points of the Oriental Meridian line.
Fusing traditional style with the vibrancy of a city centre location, Raffles Hotel Le Royal has been welcoming guests since 1929. Set in lush tropical gardens, and with rooms spread around two pools, this hotel is the only iconic landmark hotel in Phnom Penh.
 
The 175 rooms and suites, scattered around the pool areas, have been lovingly created to reflect a chic fusion of Khmer, Art Deco and French Colonial architecture. We recommend the Landmark Rooms and suites in the original hotel building with 14’ ceilings and original claw-foot baths.
 
After exploring the bustling city, guests have the opportunity to spend an afternoon or two simply relaxing in the hotel’s confines. Choose to relax by one of the two pools, or in The Raffles Spa. It offers a fully-equipped gym plus an extensive treatment menu blending local and classic treatments.
 
Cambodia offers a delectable dining scene, which is reflected in this hotel; choose the elegant Le Royal Restaurant for modern French fused with Royal Khmer cuisine or for something a little more relaxed opt for Café Monivong. Don’t leave without taking a drink in The Elephant Bar, which is one of the iconic bars of Phnom Penh with happy hour from 5-9pm, and signature cocktails like the Femme Fatale, a cocktail first concocted for Jackie Kennedy during her stay in 1967.
