A diamond jubilee celebrated in style

And the brand goes even further: many surprises will be unveiled throughout the year to celebrate its 60th anniversary with style. Starting with two major announcements at the beginning of the year: a new brand film and a collaboration that sparkles. The objective: to reaffirm the brand’s pillars, from French Zest and committed luxury to an heartfelt service culture and the deployment of the emblematic Cultural Link.

In April 2024, Sofitel unveiled a brand-new campaign headlined by two new brand ambassadors: actors Gillian Anderson and Dali Benssalah. The campaign features a short film titled The Encounter, which takes place in the flagship hotel Sofitel Mexico City Reforma, the epitome of a brand platform that is constantly evolving.

At the same time, Sofitel unveiled its new collaboration with the first sustainable jeweller on Place Vendôme in Paris: Courbet, which has designed an exclusive jewellery line that sumptuously expresses the shared values of the two Maisons, symbolizing Sofitel’s diamond anniversary. The collection comprises 18 original creations that each embody the Sofitel Cultural Link. There are diamond pave earrings, cord bracelets available in different colors, pendant necklaces, and rings adorned with ethically sourced diamonds.

60 years of history, passion and authenticity

A pioneer of the French luxury hospitality, Sofitel has been spreading the French art de vivre around the world for 60 years. On June 26 1964, Sofitel opened its first hotel in Strasbourg, Alsace. A region that epitomizes all that France has to offer – gourmet cuisine, picturesque architecture and singular landscapes.

Ten years later, the brand embarks on an international expansion trajectory, with one objective in mind: to deploy its know-how on every continent, highlighting what makes each destination different. Sofitel has been the first French luxury hotel brand operating on every continent – Europe, North and South America, Oceania, Africa and Asia.
