So SPA Sofitel. University was the best time in my life most people say. I’m sure it was! On the other hand, I realize now that it was super stressful too. During the semester you always have to work on your project, next to courses that are followed by exams. Even though, we architecture students are lucky to have a real break in between semesters I never stopped working. One internship after the other, blog work and so on. Last year I was studying fulltime architecture, had a part-time job and worked on the blog. Not to mention that I had a relationship I wanted to work and catch up with friends. And money can’t buy happiness! Most of the times I really struggle to take some time off. Yes, you see me a lot in spa hotels and I travel a lot but I do most for the blog. I do it for you! And I love it!

But today’s topic is not about complaint. There are so many ways to relax and you don’t have to leave the city and go to a deserted place. You can do it at home or you can go to city spas close by. There aren’t a lot of city spas but luckily there are enough hotels who open their spa amenties to public. Last week I was invited to discover the So SPA of the Sofitel Munich Bayerpost together with my dear friend Conny.

We met up at around 10 am on a Saturday. It was such mucky weather, which was the perfect timing for the treatments. We’d already booked a couple of weeks in advance as the spa is usually full on weekends. There are a lot of hotel guests and the spa is also open to public. The 600 m2 spa zone includes:

  • A wellness area with sauna, steam bath, nap room
  • A large swimming pool in form of a shell
  • Treatment rooms

You’ll enter the spa with dimmed lights and relaxing music. We quickly changed into bathrobes and we’re welcomed with some tea at the receptions. While Conny went first with the manicure and pedicure I got a great Peau de Satin Scrub. I didn’t know the beauty products from Carita, which was the perfect opportunity to test them. My scrub treatment was great and I had some spare time afterwards to do some steam bath sessions and to swim in the pool. We booked power naps in between which find place in separate rooms and you have one drink included. The green detox smoothie and some fresh fruit was great.

The So SPA was great and I would book another spa-day immediately. When I talked to the lady at the reception she told me that you can also get a discounted member card when you’re living in Munich.

Thank you Sofitel for the invitation. I wish you a wonderful day!
