Raffles Offers an Opulent Cambodian Journey

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Phnom Penh, Cambodia – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The phenomenal sights of Cambodia come alive on a five-day journey through the wild landscapes of the country, punctuated by luxurious rests at two of South East Asia’s famed historic hotels, Raffles Hotel Le Royal in Phnom Penh and Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor in Siem Reap.

After arriving at Raffles Hotel Le Royal in the capital, guests can soak in culture at the Royal Palace and National Museum followed by shopping for local crafts at the Russian Market. In the evening, slosh off the day at Amrita Spa with a 90-minute treatment—we recommend the Traditional Khmer Massage which manipulates the body into “passive stretching” positions aimed at creating a smooth flow of energy. Complete the indulgence with dinner at Restaurant Le Royal serving delectable Indochine cuisine.

Following the two-night stay, fly to Siem Reap for more pampering at Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor. Spend an early morning at the legendary Angkor Wat and watch the sunrise over the ancient compound. A 1950s Jeep serves as your transport through the thickets as you explore a temple trail. Or, if you wish for a slower vehicle, take an elephant safari. After you’ve worked up a sufficient appetite, take a culinary class at lunch and for dessert visit a beekeeping community to sample pure tropical honey.

Prices start from $6,300 for two.
