Serviced Apartments in Phnom Penh

About Us

Dara Hotels (dara: ផ្កាយ, “star” in Khmer) is the brand name for an initiative by Cambodian investors who, in the early 2000s, decided to join forces in order to develop a Cambodian hospitality group. Dara Hotels’ vision is to develop quality hotels in strategic locations across the country.

The first project was a vast renovation at the iconic Independence Hotel (known as Hotel Pram Pi Chhonn in Khmer, The Seven-Storey Hotel). The “Grande Dame” of Sihanoukville, which younger generations see as the symbol of their country’s “Golden Age,” was completed in 1964, and was a personal project of late King Norodom Sihanouk. This historic landmark, known nowadays as Independence Hotel by Dara, is undergoing another phase of modernization.

Dara Hotels then turned its attention to another strategic area of Cambodia: the rapidly growing business and residential district of Toeuk Thla in the capital city. Conveniently situated at the Ratana Plaza Mall, near Phnom Penh International Airport and the recently launched Special Economic Zone, the Dara Airport City Hotel & Spa since July 2012 has become a great hub for international business travelers and local entrepreneurs.

Serviced Apartments

In Phnom Penh again, remodeling and extending of a large administration building from the Sixties is underway for Dara - The Sixties, high-standing, serviced apartments and penthouses a few steps from Wat Phnom, landmark of Cambodia's capital city.

New developments

In 2018, Dara Hotels is set to open Olympia City Hotel, with 168 rooms in central Phnom Penh, and The Elysee, 37 high-standing, serviced apartments decorated in a luxurious French style and located on Diamond Island.

Wellness and leisure

Along with their outstanding locations and their quality of service, one of Dara Hotels distinctive traits is also their wellness facilities. Jouvence Fitness & Spa, our signature wellness brand, is now expanding to several in-town locations.

Dara Hotels keeps on developing along its fundamental lines – supporting local culture and arts, effectively contributing to the country’s economic growth, and encouraging employment and career opportunities for Cambodian nationals.
