Sofitel Launches Its New “So SPA By Sofitel” Concept
So SPA by Sofitel has also designed its own range of therapy products, So Exhilarating and So Rejuvenating, exclusive treatments enhanced by Sofitel music played on So SPA iPods to create a unique experience. All the massage tables boast a version of the celebrated Sofitel MyBed, featured in all Sofitel Luxury Hotels and now converted for spa therapy for optimal comfort and perfect relaxation.

The menu also features a few exclusive therapies such as Petit Déjeuner Bonne Tenue for business travelers with little time to spare, whose suits are pressed and shoes polished while they make good use of the sports room and steam-bath. Martinis & Manucures, Pintes & Pédicures and Scrunch (a scrub version of the brunch) are other amusing variations on the traditional spa theme.
Meeting up and creating ties… two philosophies placed at the heart of the So SPA experience. In true British style, patrons meet at the spa’s Tea Bar, a social venue for enjoying a cup of tea along with a French macaroon while indulging in a manicure or pedicure. For people keen to develop their Zen-inspired interior cool, the Tea Bar reserves a relaxation corner in a mezzanine, a real sanctuary of peace and quiet to refresh the mind and soul.
To deliver another quintessentially British experience, London’s first SPA majordomos are assigned with assuring the constant excellence of service standards. Majordomos welcome visitors as they arrive, supervise the initial consultation and propose made-to-measure service by way of a multitude of small details. For instance the choice of music, composed especially for So SPA, depending on the mood and preferred therapy, the selection of essential oils and scents diffused in the therapy room, room temperature, a selection of teas to enjoy after the therapy and a choice of pillows…
After therapy, the English-style tea ceremony at So SPA enables guests to choose their favorite tea from a selection containing the most appropriate virtues: a sweet anti-fatigue blend or a nourishing infusion… To prolong the ceremony at home, guests are invited to choose the bath infusion they prefer from the five on offer.
In addition to the 5 therapy booths, including a twin model, the area features a traditional Turkish steam-bath, Dornbracht RainSky showers for aromatherapy and a private relaxation pool (Astorina). Also available at So SPA are manicure and varnish products from the French brand O.P.I. with a range of colors sporting evocative names like You Don’t Know Jacques, I’m Fondue Of You, A Oui Bit of Red and Tickle My France-y!
Last but not least, guests at the Sofitel London St James can also enjoy the new So FIT fitness center: 100 m2 offering the very finest equipment and most notably the very original AlphaSphere by Sha, a multi-dimensional experience space that consists of a play on sound, light, warmth and movements – combining a unique quality of in-depth relaxation with vivifying and energizing effects.

In addition to the So FIT fitness center, enhanced by a relaxation pool, relaxation beach, sauna and steam bath, the So WELL area will feature a “duo” therapy suite with sea-view, 3 private therapy rooms and a private sun-deck with the old port providing the panorama.
Aside from signature therapies, the Carita brand will administer its unique know-how by way of totally original therapies combined with exceptional products, for example the made-tomeasure renewal facial care adjusted to each skin’s own needs: replenishing cool care, soothing pampering care, delicious nourishing care or matifying balancing care.
