First North American SoSpa Opens in LA

SoSpa at the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly HillsLast month, SoSpa at the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills marked the first SoSpa opening in North America. The spa’s five treatment rooms all come equipped with MyBed massage tables, which are designed to maximize comfort. Three of the treatment rooms also feature Swiss rain showers. The spa has two VIP treatment suites, both of which include a private hydrotherapy spa bath. “We wanted to introduce our first North American SoSpa in a city known for its commitment to health and wellness as well as a passion for elegance and beauty,” says Aldina Duarte Ramos, global director of wellbeing for luxury and upscale brands at AccorHotels. “Each SoSpa location artfully blends French art de vivre with the best of local cultural refinement, and we have adapted the spa menu to embrace the customs and culture of Los Angeles.” Incorporating products from Carita and Decléor Paris, the offerings are designed to resemble a menu from a gourmet French restaurant. Guests are encouraged to combine services from the “Starters,” “Mains,” and “Desserts” sections. Also on the menu are several exclusive offerings for the Los Angeles location. Sound Bath ($350, 90 minutes) with Jamie Ford, for example, takes guests on a musical journey with meditative and healing results. The spa also offers Breathe Workshops to help guests achieve emotional clarity. In addition to providing a personalized approach to wellness, SoSpa features an exclusive membership for $300 per month that gives guests access to SoFit, its state-of-the-art fitness center; complimentary monthly spa services; and a Sofitel Prestige Card, which gives members discounts on personal training sessions, Le Salon services, and more. It’s Beverly Hills bliss in the making.
