So SPA at Sofitel London St James part of Sofitel So SPA

Opened in July 2009, Sofitel So SPA is an exceptional and unique day spa. It is an exhilarating, uplifting and rejuvenating experience where different therapies and treatments from around the world meet the refinement and skill of the latest in French cosmetology. Sofitel So SPA is a true escape from the city.

Designed over three floors, the original grade II listed building features high ceilings and natural daylight, providing the most spectacular backdrop for Sofitel So SPA.

Carita and Cinq Mondes have been chosen as the natural partners for the spa. The expertise of Carita based on its uncompromising innovation and vision of luxury cosmetology is combined with the Cinq Mondes philosophy, mixing French refinement and inspiration from the best health and beauty traditions around the world.

With the highly-regarded skincare brand, Mama Mio, mothers to be can indulge in treatments designed to take them through every stage of the nine months stretch and beyond; while the Claret-Coquet acupuncture face-lift method harmonises inner energy and helps tone the entire face.

A spa butler is on hand to guide the client through their unique and personalised spa journey. With the “French touch” spa menu inspired by gastronomy, clients can choose from starters, mains or desserts and even specials with signature treatments including the “So Rejuvenating” facial and the “So Exhilarating” massage created exclusively for Sofitel So SPA. The “Martini and Manicure” is a glamorous way to enjoy a manicure with friends, and men might like to try the “Pint and Pedicure” treatment.

Specially commissioned music and fragrances further enhance every aspect of the overall spa experience with a special tea service after each treatment in the soothing surroundings of the deep relaxation lounge.

This was absolutely lovely! I booked a 'Oh so romantic' spa day for two for me and my boyfriend and we both loved it. Facilities were perfect, staff were caring and did an amazing job on both the massage and facial. Can't recommend SoSpa enough, really hope to be back soon!

This was a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. I would most definitely come again. The selection of massages was good and the therapists were excellent. I had the hot stone massage and my therapist was excellent. Worth every penny!!

everything was spot on, best yet. I bought this as a present for my mum and sister, every year they go and they said this was the best one so far.

I booked the So Magnifique Spa Experience for myself and my partner to celebrate his birthday and I highly recommend giving it a try. We were greeted with a cup of tea and a sweet whilst we filled out the massage form, and were then shown to the well appointed changing rooms. After getting into our suits, we were shown to the jacuzzi, which is in a private room so rather intimate. After our 30 minutes we went to the steam room, which was also private. This was followed by our massages which I had booked the couples room for. Afterwards, we sat (still in our robes!) and were served a beautiful afternoon tea. I am a vegan and they were able to cater for this easily. Use of the facilites beforehand were an additional £10, but very much worth it. All of the facilites were clean and the staff were all very kind. I would return to this spa. :)

Nice reception area. Relaxation area ok but not so when I arrived as people were in there talking. Pool & Jacuzzi were excluded from deal, so experience was only for the treatment.

Great massage - very relaxing. Staff very friendly. Disappointed that there was a fee to use the wider spa facilities eg pool, Jacuzzi.

The facilities were superb, relaxing surroundings and very private. Rated one star down for facilities as there is no sauna.

I would definitely go back!

As I was looking to book my next visit to this wonderful venue, I came across this latest review and somehow felt very angry. " Rated one star down". Victoria you rated the venue 1 star because they have no sauna? How about the rest of the luxury, this does not count? I am not sure if people realise how damaging to business can be to hit the button and rate 1 star! I am unsure why you will be going back.

I have visited on a few occasions and for any future Guests this is a 5 star venue without a doubt.

The massage, facial and champagne were great. But if you want to use the sauna and Jacuzzi it's an extra £10. I would have chosen another venue if I'd known.
