Raffles Hotel Le Royal is one of the finest hotels in Cambodia, and is evocative of a bygone era. Built in 1929, this colonial landmark has had an interesting past and clientele, from well-known journalists reporting on Cambodia’s raging civil war to distinguished royalty, as well starring briefly in the film, The Killing Fields. An imposing statement of Khmer, Art Deco and French Colonial style, Hotel Le Royal originally opened its grand doors in 1929. It reopened as Raffles Hotel Le Royal in 1997 after a sensitive extension and refurbishment. To protect this piece of Cambodian heritage, local artisans were commissioned to recreate painted ceilings, decorative beaten copper crests and outdoor sculptures.
