Five years ago if you had asked me to recommend a luxury hotel in Phnom Penh the answer would have been easy: The Raffles. But today, it’s a different story… the ever evolving city now offers a whole new range of options – even a band new 5* skyscraper hotel that perfectly mirrors the changing face of this developing city.
On my recent trip to Cambodia, I could not believe how much the city had developed since my last visit a few years ago – and not just in the way of the odd skyscraper – it was also cleaner, the roads felt almost wider with the absence of plastic bags and strewn rubbish, and by night the city was lit-up with pretty fairy lights; quite literally glowing.
Phnom Penh has been home to some fantastic boutique hotels for a while, but I was overwhelmed by the increasing number of luxury options, which let me to create the following video review of the top 3 luxury hotels in Phnom Penh. What I especially love is that they all offer a complete different experience – Raffles still remains my number one choice for traditional luxury but the views at The Rosewood (if you like a bit of modern luxury) are unbeatable – and for those that are not city folk, but don’t want to miss Phnom Penh, The Balé is a zen-like paradise on the riverside. Take a peek at my short video below to get the full low down…
We’re experimenting with videos here at Luxury Travel in Asia – it seems like the perfect way to best show our clients what we have seen and the different hotels on offer. So stay posted for a few more like this! And please do get in touch if you need any help with putting together the perfect trip in Cambodia.
Happy travel planning!
