Sofitel has an amazing afternoon tea buffet, featuring everything chocolate. We weren’t quite sure how they could stretch chocolate to fill an entire buffet, but it was very inventive, and the chocolate fountain was good fun. The pairing with local chocolate brand Wat Chocolate worked well, and the happy buffet-goers could try a range of Wat Choc flavors, including bolder ones such as chili and Kampot pepper. The setting of the afternoon buffet is very elegant, in the ‘Le Bar’ area of the hotel foyer. The staff was very good and attentive, and dainty porcelain and place settings and a tinkling piano in the background, all added to the relaxing, yet stylish, ambience.
We had real tea leaves in our teapots which is as one might expect, but that doesn’t always happen (even at Le Royal Raffles a while ago, when I asked for green tea, it was just a boring type of bag ….) so this is something I always look for, ans appreciate, in an upmarket place.
