With its Colonial architecture and numerous decorative details from the Angkorian period, Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra presents a beautiful blend of the French way of life and the refinement of Cambodian culture.
Located on the banks of the Bassac Tiver, on Sothearos Boulevard, a few minutes from the Royal Palace and shopping malls, Sofitel makes an excellent place to stay to explore the city.
The hotel also offers an outstanding view of Phnom Penh’s rapid expansion, including the new district of Koh Pich. This atmosphere intensifies its appeal not only to business travelers, many of whom visit and attend the frequent events that are held, but also to families, who will appreciate the lush garden, embellished with a huge outdoor pool, as well as the Phokeethra Sports Club and its top-of-the-line amenities, including squash and tennis courts. Club members include people living in Phnom Penh, an additional opportunity for travelers to meet active locals.
The rooms and suites invite the visitor to enjoy the city’s Eastern charm in Western comfort with modern and refined colonial elegance. Latitudes particularly liked the Deluxe room and its enormous balcony, the ideal spot to watch the sunrise over the river.
For gourmet diners, the restaurant La Coupole overlooking the river offers a range of Asian and Western dishes. The very intimate setting of Do Forni offers excellent Italian cuisine, Hachi features Japanese cuisine, and Fu Lu Zu serves savory Cantonese cuisine.
For those with a sweet tooth, Chocolat, as the name suggests, is perfect for an afternoon snack or refreshment.
Finally, art lovers will not be left out. Sofitel has its own exhibition space, The Gallery, which features Cambodian artists who rotate quarterly.
