Raffles Hotel Le Royal brims with history. First established in 1929 guests at the hotel have included Jackie Kennedy and today it effortlessly combines Khmer, Art Deco and French colonial styles.
Two outdoor pools are surrounded by tropical greenery and some of the 175 rooms have balconies overlooking this verdant scene. Additional facilities include a choice of restaurants and bars including the Elephant Bar, a renowned spot for afternoon tea of an evening cocktail.
