So SPA London boasts classic French pampering in the heart of modern Mayfair
It’s a popular myth that French women don’t age badly. While this may not always be true, there is no doubting the effectiveness of some of the more innovative French beauty treatments.
So SPA London at the Sofitel London St James takes inspiration from its heritage by using French cosmetology techniques along with products by Carita and Cinq Mondes, as well as specialised Mama Mio treatments for expectant mothers. This is one of the very few spas that offers a ‘4th trimester’ treatment, designed to help new mums to feel like themselves again.
Outside of this the spa’s menu features the usual scrubs, facials and massages, as well as a few quirky additions such as the self-explanatory ‘Martini & Manicure’ or ‘Pint & Pedicure’, and extra special indulgences such as the spa’s signature ‘So Rejuvenating Facial Treatment’.
For men, there is the bespoke Gentlemen’s Escape treatment package, which includes a series of full body massages, as well as the usual grooming options.
Pop in for a 30-minute express treatment, or book a full day package to make the most of the spa’s facilities, which include a restaurant, a cocktail bar and specially created music and fragrances throughout each of the building’s three storeys.
There’s something for everyone at So SPA London, although the luxurious treatment options make it the sort of spa you visit for an occasional treat, rather than a regular wax.
