Le Bokor Palace Hotel in Kampot, southeast Cambodia, has been renovated by Sokha Hotels & Resorts and will soon re-open.
Also known as the “Old Casino” on Bokor Mountain, the luxury resort was originally created as a cool summer retreat for colonial residents in the early 1920s. Perched on the Bokor Mountain in Preah Monivong National Park, the hotel was revived in the early 1960s to serve high-ranking government officials and wealthy business people, and became the favourite retreat of His Majesty Norodom Sihanouk, the King of Cambodia.

Now fully restored, Le Bokor Palace features 36 luxurious rooms and suites, plus two restaurants that use organic ingredients grown nearby to create royal Khmer cuisine.
