About SoSPA at Sofitel London St James

Housed in the former Cox’s and King's bank, the five star Sofitel London St James sits in the center of the city's West End, within walking distance of famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, and St James's Park. The grade II-listed building merges its neoclassic facade of the property's original construction with a modern French flair that complements Sofitel's "art de recevoir" philosophy.

The 184 guest rooms and suites offer sleek, high-tech amenities, rich fabrics in shades of chocolate, almond and olive, lacquered mahogany furniture, thick carpets, sophisticated lighting and state-of-the-art technology, which are trademarks of the hotel.

The Balcon, this grand brasserie is the perfect setting to enjoy the finest French-British cuisine from Head Chef Vincent Menager. The area has been designed with the sense of arrival evident throughout each of the distinct areas: the brasserie, the custom-made charcuterie bar, the Champagne Balcony, the tasting table and private dining room.The Balcon offers breakfast, morning tea and savouries, lunch, French and English afternoon tea, Champagne and cocktails, charcuterie, dinner and late night dining. The St James Bar takes its inspiration from Coco Chanel’s 1920’s Paris apartment. The cocktail list includes vintage cocktails from antique recipe books as well as a wide champagne list and English sparkling wine animated by our very own champagne angel.

Set over three floors, the 392-square-meter Sofitel SoSPA offers a menu of services using Carita and Cinq Mondes products.

Spa butlers at Sofitel SoSPA greet guests and guide them through the personalised spa experience, customising every detail from music and scents to room temperature and after-treatment teas. Interiors of the tri level spa combine contemporary style with the facility's original furnishings, including an oak staircase, rose-colored marble walls, ornate moldings, and Corinthian-inspired marble columns. Soothing water fixtures and a quaint garden add to the spa's tranquil atmosphere. The spa offers a communal Tea Bar, where guests can socialise; a relaxation area with teas and lounge beds awaits those looking for a more calming respite.

Reminiscent of a restaurant menu, the Sofitel SoSPA menu of services features 30-minute Starters such as aromatic hydrotherapy and hamam rituals and 60-minute Main Courses that include full-body massages and anti-ageing facials. Tasty Desserts such as Martinis & Manicures and Pints & Pedicures top off the finishing courses. Guests can also indulge in the signature So Exhilarating body treatment and So Rejuvenating facial treatment.

Sofitel SoSPA also offers an alternative to botox and hyaluronan with the Claret-Coquet Method Acupuncture Face-Lift, which stimulates the muscles, smoothes wrinkles and fine lines and helps tone the entire face, leaving the skin more radiant and firm.

The 392-square-meter spa has five treatment rooms, including a dual room, in addition to a retail boutique, manicure and pedicure stations, Turkish hamam, Astorina hydro bath, Dornbracht aromatherapy-infused experience showers, and a Kohler Sok infinity bath with chromotherapy.

Customer Reviews for SoSPA at Sofitel London St James (7)

February 19, 2016
Charming Escape
I had a 90 minute Oriental Massage. It was extremely relaxing from start to finish. The therapist provided exactly the right amount of explanation and 'check-ins', allowing me to feel comfortable and relaxed. I felt very well looked after, served with delicious teas and a choice of cucumber or lemon water. The smatterings of french certainly added to the charm of the experience. I feel unable to comment on the spa and fitness facilities as I did not see them.

I bought this treat for my husband and he was thrilled. Although it doesn't have a swimming pool, sadly, he didn't spend the whole day there but all afternoon being pampered. On returning he'd had a great experience, massage was perfect, just the right pressure and he would definitely go again.

Wonderful pampering
I went to the So Spa a few weeks back and it was simply amazing. I had the So Magnifique for two with my boyfriend and we both thoroughly enjoyed every second. I thought booking was going to be hard as we have hardly any time - but the manager, Robin, made so much effort to accommodate us and we got a last minute spot - even in the same room! the treatments were just amazing... and the afternoon tea afterwards was just the perfect way to end the afternoon. I truly recommend!

A very relaxing experience in the centre of London. A very well designed spa.

Bank On It!
I visited this historic and listed bank building on Waterloo Place before it was transformed into the first Sofitel So SPA. And what a transformation! I was knocked out the design and the colours - a stunning piece of French urban chic in downtown St James... brilliant! And I'm a big fan of Cinque Monde - I think they have great products which I have tried a few times before. So I tried out a body scrub on the heated hammam table and took full advantage of the steam room and hammam facilities - followed by a relaxing full body massage. Then I chilled out in the relaxation area with a personal iPod - nice touch. Over a cup of tea my 'spa butler' took me through the products - something I like to do because I'm interested in whats going on my skin (only one I've got!). I was very happy. Overall - a great addition to one of the best hotels in London

Vive la French...
Sofitel St James is a great combo of traditional British architecture and design with a glorious French twist. The SO Spa (great name!) is housed in an old bank that has somehow been transformed into an oasis of beauty and relaxation. I have experienced Cinq Monde products one other time (in Monaco) and was thrilled to find the treatments closer to home. I had a Ko Bi Do facial - and came out feeling so refreshed and renewed that I bought the entire line of products that they used on me - they smell glorious and I'm convinced they actually work. All the therapists are clearly very professional, but i knew I'd really love Claire when she treated me to much needed "extractions" (not sure if it was part of the facial) but it made all the difference. And reminded me what I love about French Estheticians.
