Did you know that Sofitel has an amazing afternoon tea buffet featuring everything chocolate? This delicious concept is a result of a collaboration between Sofitel and local chocolate brand WAT. We weren’t quite sure how they could possible stretch the chocolate to fill an entire buffet, but that did not seem to be a problem. The display was very inventive, and the chocolate fountain was good fun. The happy buffet-goers can try a range of WAT Chocolate 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, plus 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.
