Alex James has joined the team at the Langley, a Luxury Collection Hotel, as spa director.
James’ appointment will see her responsible for the launch of The Langley Spa, promising a world-class destination complete with a selection of unparalleled spa experiences when it opens in late 2018.
Nestled within 500 acres of idyllic Buckinghamshire countryside, the Langley is a 41-room boutique hotel and spa, owned and managed by City & Country Hotels.
Following a meticulous restoration spanning five years, the former hunting lodge of the third Duke of Marlborough will create an outstanding retreat for both local and international guests alike, complete with a collection of epicurean experiences just a 40-minute drive from central London.
James has accumulated over 14 years’ experience within the spa industry, having cultivated her career at several high-profile institutions including The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, London and The Spa at The Landmark London.
Her most recent experience as spa manager at the latter is pivotal to her new role at The Langley, having led the team through a complete refurbishment while also redeveloping its treatment menu, bringing new spa brand partners on board to create an entirely new treatment offering.
On her appointment, James commented: “I am thrilled to have joined the pre-opening team at The Langley as we build momentum to its anticipated launch.
“My ultimate aim is to guide the team to deliver our mission statement, which is to provide an unparalleled spa experience alongside a highly-personalised service tailored to each guests’ needs.”
The Langley Spa will offer a limited, private membership programme, with a range of memberships available for individuals, couples and families.
Membership will provide access to all of the facilities and services on offer, delivering a complete lifestyle and wellness experience in a luxurious environment.
The Langley Spa will be open to hotel residents, day guests and members.
