The Raffles is gorgeous, an old property with alot of charm and local color that's also comfortable and luxurious. The service is incredibly attentive - moreso even than you will find in 5 stars in Thailand. The Cambodian people are so helpful and friendly. The best thing about this place is the Spa - do not miss the massages, they are the best I have ever had and relatively inexpensive. Rooms are very nice, get one facing the pool. Shout out to Punh (spl?) in the Spa! I do have to mention that the concierge booked a flight for us to Siem Reap, and we got to the airport only to find no record of the flight (which we paid him for) having been booked. After a few calls back and forth between the gate agent and the hotel, this was sorted out, however, and we were able to board the flight.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A history of hospitality. The luxury of time. The secret charm of Cambodia. One of Asia's essential destination hotels, Raffles Phnom Penh has been the iconic resting place for the well travelled since 1929. Located in the heart of vibrant Phnom Penh, our hotel has been part of the history of the city and welcomes, as it has always done, a diverse clientele of entrepreneurs, writers, journalists, royalty and intrepid travellers from across the globe. Rooms and suites have been respectfully restored to reflect a distinguished blend of Khmer, Art Deco and French colonial architecture. Dining is an essential part of the Phnom Penh experience. In keeping with history and a sense of place, the elegant Le Royal Restaurant serves modern French cuisine and Royal Khmer cuisine with original recipes graciously gifted to Raffles from the Royal Palace. Almost as famous as the hotel itself, is the Elephant Bar where local residents and visitors alike gather over wine, whisky and cocktails. The Raffles Spa offers relaxation, rejuvenation and fitness through a considered mix of local and classic treatments, gym and spa pool.
