SoSPA at Sofitel London St James

Skill of the latest in French cosmetology - Sofitel So SPA is a true escape from the city


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. New and expecting mothers can also indulge in treatments with the range of Mama Mio products.
