Attractions near Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra
Gourmet Italian indulgence at Do Forni
Among the onsite culinary spoils of the Sofitel Phonm Penh is this elegant Italian restaurant, boasting a romantic ambience. Encased by tall windows, natural light streams in at lunchtime while the wooden ceilings and water ponds instil sophistication at any time of the day or night.
The cuisine is based on quality seasonal ingredients. Delight in dishes like creamy porcini mushroom risotto, homemade tiger prawn gnocchi with smatterings of crispy eggplant, or the chef’s experimental award-winning dish: risotto with melon, shrimp and gorgonzola.
You can watch the chefs at work from the open kitchen, where fresh local seafood and an artful attention to presentation are key. Wine connoisseurs are treated to an overflowing cellar with upwards of 200 choices, while the poolside terrace location beckons you to sip a pomegranate martini.
The illustrious National Museum
Cambodia’s National Museum is just minutes from your door at the Sofitel. Here, you’ll find an enlightening array of relics that inform the country’s rich cultural history. Located by the stunning Royal Palace, the museum houses an expansive array of objects steeped in Indian influence and the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism.
Marvel at the objects cast in bronze by the ancient Khmer before traipsing past walls of exquisite shining Buddha statues and intricate traditional ceramics. The museum also offers rotating exhibitions showcasing both national and international treasures.
