The menu is a guide for your spray tan and James will bespoke the colour to your skin tone and occasion.


Fresh and natural, this tan gives you that day-at-the-beach bronze with a little something extra: 3d contouring that ensures even coverage and a multi-tonal effect.

A daytime tan aimed to give an athletic finish by enhancing your existing muscle tone. Light butterscotch filters flatter just about everyone and an extra boost of colour along the chest and shoulders is a secret weapon for going strapless.

Flattering for every skin tone, this taupe tan gives you a natural supermodel effect using a double strength formula for extra curve enhancement focusing on your face a stomach and making you look like a natural beach-babe.

Dark and dreamy, this beautiful tan with a pearlised effect is one of the most popular hues, especially for olive, Asian or dark skin tones (or if you want a strong just-back-from-vacation look).

James Harknett

One of the country’s leading tanning experts, James Harknett has teamed up with the W London hotel to offer a sensational new menu of tanning treatments. James designed his own ‘by appointment’ service, which has led him to be on many celebrities’ speed dial.

Guests at the AWAY Spa will be given VIP treatment, beginning with a consultation to discuss their tan requirements.
James then selects and expertly applies the best products, leaving a flawless finish.



James is not only the man who tans, he is the man that likes to be tanned. This has led him to develop a range of shades to suit the male form.

The Gent

This barely there golden hue is a gentleman’s best friend. No one will know you are faking but the compliments will be a plenty. Even coverage of color is airbrushed over the skin to leave a natural look of wellbeing. Think David Gandy.

The Squire

From tweeds to pinstripe every squire needs a glow at some point. The great British summer may let you down but this colour won’t. This darker solution in the Fake Bake range will leave your skin radiant and shouting summer all year round. As with all 3 treatments, leave the salon feeling dry and sun kissed. Think Mr Statham

The Lad

Chiseled is back! Allow yourself to be sculpted with this double application. Abs, biceps and pecks are contoured with precision to define the body. This darker toning effect is a must for all the sporty boys, using Gold from the award winning Fake Bake range. Think Thom Evens.
