Raffles Hotel Le Royal in Cambodia Voted One of World Best City Hotels
Raffles Hotel Le Royal, the luxury heritage hotel in the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, was recently voted one of the world’s best city hotels by readers of the UK-based Luxury Lifestyle Magazine.
The hotel placed No. 24 on the list and was the only hotel in Cambodia honored in its category in the LLM Readers’ Travel Awards 2023, which were announced last month.
Raffles Hotel Le Royal originally opened in 1929 and today features 175 rooms and suites that underwent a full refurbishment as part of a meticulous one-year restoration project in 2019.
The latest award adds to a growing list of recognitions for the historic property.
Last year, the Travel + Leisure Luxury Awards Asia Pacific named Raffles Hotel Le Royal one of the top city hotels in Cambodia, General Manager Dennis de Groot was honored as one of the country’s top hotel GMs, and the swimming pool was declared the very best in all of Cambodia.
It was also voted the No. 1 hotel in Cambodia by readers of Condé Nast Traveler in its popular annual Readers’ Choice Awards the previous year.
