A luxury hotel fit for Royalty.
Raffles Hotel Le Royal has, for nearly a century, been the premier hotel in Phnom Penh, blessed with history,style and atmosphere. First established in 1929, it has had a diverse international clientele of entrepreneurs, writers, journalists, royalty and intrepid travelers.Graced through the years by legends including former U.S First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and various heads of states.
Located at the heart of this intoxicating city, directly across from the American embassy, this landmark luxury hotel offers easy access to the Central Market and Russian Market and makes an ideal base for sightseeing tours of Wat Phnom, the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda and along the mythical Mekong.
We had a fantastic lunch and show round this legendary hotel with John Neutze the new Director of Sales and Marketing for Raffles in Cambodia – last time we had met was at a Thailand dinner in Edinburgh 2 years ago.
Unfortunately we didn’t have time to return later on in the day to sample a Femme Fatale ,the signature cocktail of the Elephant Bar, the centre of the city’s brilliant social scene.
Why not head out to Cambodia and sample the fantastic Song Saa Private Island off the coast of Cambodia ?
All inclusive from £3145 per person staying in a jungle villa
Extend your stay and add on the wonders of Angkor Wat or venture into Thailand or Vietnam as well.
Great meeting in Edinburgh yesterday with Hugues from The Oetker Collection and Shirley from GP Associates.
Thanks very much for the lovely gifts from the Hotel Le Bristol
Chill out on the beach at Acapulco Beach Resort and Spa
A couple of times a week a Secret Bar appears at Lux Le Morne.
Grab yourself a drink or make a cocktail
from it and enjoy !
Children are well catered for at Shanti Maurice with lots of sports facilities for teenagers, games and a snooker table.
For children between the ages of 3 and 12 there is a fantastic kids club tucked away in the resort with many activities on offer. They even have their own herb garden and swimming pool.
The Travel Architect is having a quick 2 night stay at the 5 star Shanti Maurice Hotel – A Nira Resort in the south of Mauritius. Shanti means peace and its certainly the case here ! It’s a very peaceful, quiet place to chill out and have a holiday.
The resort is spread out over 36 acres of tropical gardens and you can easily wander around without meeting anyone else.
The hotel opened in 2006 with 61 suites which are split into 2 areas – 17 villas and 44 suites. The suites are oceanfront which are on the upper level and beachfront which have direct access to the beach and the addition of an outside shower. All suites are 81 sq mtrs so very large.
The villas are 1 and 2 bedroomed and have their own swimming pools,sala and extensive outside areas.
Although I didn’t manage to squeeze in a spa treatment today ( although did manage the gym yesterday) I used the facilities which include changing rooms with steam, sauna and jacuzzi facilities.
Whilst it has been very hot in Dubai for the past few days it has been lovely to lie in the shade of the cabanas being served with endless iced tea and iced water.
One of the bonuses of staying in a club room is that you can have afternoon tea between 3 and 5pm.
There are 3 different types which are served in rotation – English, Arabic and Asian.
