French hotel group opens hotels around the world

Sofitel, last week celebrated the opening of three new properties just in time for the holiday season; the Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom (Austria); Sofitel So Mauritius; and Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra (Cambodia).

The 182-room Vienna hotel, located along the Danube Canal will become the brand's flagship property in Europe.  Each of the hotel's façades is a different monochrome shade, creating the effect of a life-size piece of abstract art, which constantly changes to reflect the shifting colours of the Vienna sky.

Sofitel So, the latest brand from Sofitel Luxury Hotels, makes its mark located on the island's less developed South Coast, offering 92 individual suites and villas carefully positioned in the natural landscape to take advantage of the lush gardens, the natural lagoon and views of the Indian Ocean with access to the resort's own beach.

Surrounded by gardens and set on the banks of the Bassac River, near the business and embassy district, Sofitel Phnom Penh Royal is reminiscent of a Khmer palace. It luxury destination in its own right as it boasts four restaurants, a sports complex and clubhouse, tennis and squash courts, two pools and extensive lawns and gardens. www.sofitel.com
