Phnom Penh, Cambodia still has a way to go when compared to neighboring Bangkok, Vietnam or Singapore in terms of opulence and luxury. It’s undeniable however that there is a plush high-end scene for those that have the means. Plush resorts and private islands dot the coasts while in Phnom Penh, exclusive luxury hotels cater to the jetset.
Despite no longer being the nicest luxury hotel in Phnom Penh, timeless luxury in Phnom Penh begins with the Raffles Hotel Le Royale. The iconic luxury hotel has been “respectfully restored” to it’s former glory when it first opened its doors in 1929. That kind of pedigree is hard to deny but the proof of it’s continued relevance is in the many 5-star reviews, such as this one from TripAdvisor:
