The story and vision of Sofitel

In 1964, Sofitel opened the doors to its first hotel in Strasbourg, a center of gastronomy, wine, and history in the Alsace region. Since 1975, Sofitel has rapidly expanded beyond the borders of France, showcasing French hospitality throughout the world while setting new industry benchmarks.

2003 saw the introduction of the Sofitel MyBed™, redefining a good night’s sleep in the hospitality industry. In 2009, Sofitel Legend made its mark on the world, representing the height of luxurious heritage in their destinations.

While Sofitel properties exude a French zest, they all preserve their local cultures by fostering deep connections with local communities and conservation organizations. Stay with Sofitel, and you’ll experience the transformative power of culture and art – something that the hotel group supports through charitable initiatives. In 2011, Sofitel partnered with Le Petit Prince and the Antoine de St Exupéry Youth Foundation to support literacy, education, and cultural exchange projects – Sofitel donates €2 for every reservation made with its family offer.

What you can expect from Sofitel

Sofitel reinvents luxury at its hotels and resorts through the fusion of the local culture and French art de vivre, whether it’s the presentation of a curated dish or the exhibition of local artwork. Many hotels, particularly in the Legend collection, reside in iconic buildings that have been sites of pivotal moments in history – you can stay in properties that have inspired Agatha Christie and Charlie Chaplin.

Sofitel’s dining options encourage you to embark on a culinary voyage, where menus are inspired by the passion and creativity of world-class chefs and mixologists that draw on local and French techniques. Besides in its gastronomic offerings, local arts and culture are showcased in Sofitel hotels’ décor, service, and community events ranging from performances to art exhibitions. Another gift for your senses is Sofitel’s approach to holistic wellness; facilities include luxury spas, indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centers, yoga classes, French cosmetology, and much more, inviting you on a journey of rejuvenation and self-discovery.

How Sofitel champions diversity, equality, and inclusion

Sofitel and its parent group Accor promote diversity, equality, and inclusion as a key driver of innovation and performance. Its Talent & Culture Teams promote equality and combat discrimination throughout the world in line with Accor’s values of championing natural kindness, valuing all voices, and respecting our differences. And this dignity and respect is extended by Accor to its guests, employees, and local communities alike. Through unifying strength and the power of diversity, Accor fosters a culture of inclusion where everybody is free to be their authentic selves. The hospitality group’s approach to diversity comprises four key pillars: gender diversity and equality, LGBTQ+ inclusion, the integration of people with disabilities, and the promotion of social, ethnic, cultural, and racial diversity.

Some of Sofitel's most inspiring properties

Situated inside the beautifully appointed and restored 17th-century Convent of the Order of Saint Clare with a liberal sprinkling of old-world glamor in the UNESCO-listed city of Cartegena, the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara Cartagena is home to rooms and suites that combine Republican and Colonial design features with handcrafted finishes and modern comforts. Facilities include a candlelit spa, dining venues that fuse Caribbean flavors with French finesse, and an exquisite courtyard with a pool. Activities range from wellness programs to cooking classes.

Located in the heart of Panama City’s UNESCO-listed historic district is the Sofitel Legend Casco Viejo, which occupies the former Union Club building that was constructed in 1917. Rooms and suites at this seafront sanctuary boast classic touches like four-poster beds and hi-tech gadgets such as Smart HDTVs with cutting-edge speakers, though their best feature is arguably the balconies with ocean views – a vista also enjoyed from the hotel’s singular pool deck. Other luxurious facilities include two restaurants, three bars, in-room dining, an artisan café, and the lush Plaza Courtyard, where you can savor a delicious afternoon tea.

One of Sofitel’s stars of Southeast Asia is the Sofitel Legend Métropole Hanoï, which has been a hotel and cherished Hanoi Old Quarter since 1901. The building blends neoclassical elegance with French colonial charm and local stylings, all in line with strict environmental standards. For local fare, reserve a table at the Spice Garden, but do treat yourself to some French haute cuisine at Le Beaulieu during your stay. In addition to several more dining options, the hotel’s facilities include an incredible spa, uniquely styled wings, a garden, and an outdoor swimming pool.
