Serenity Spa is Tauranga’s newest beauty salon. Located in a back section, close to the heart of Greerton Village, the quiet and tastefully decorated premises provide a relaxing haven for some much-needed pampering.
Glenda Beer, the salon’s owner, has a background in finance and risk management but it was a dream of hers to open a day spa. It’s a busy little salon and, on arrival, I was greeted by Glenda and offered an assortment of hot drinks or water while I waited in the comfortable reception area. It wasn’t long before Senior Beauty Therapist, Haley Ward, took me through into the manicure and pedicure room.
My pedicure experience was first class. I had the Revitalising Spa Pedicure which includes a nail cut and shape, cuticle tidy, foot exfoliant, mask and heavenly massage. This was finished off with a buff and choice of nail polish. The attention to detail, to my comfort, the massage pressure and the finished look were exceptional. Haley was also able to pick up on the vibe as to whether I wanted to chat or snooze quietly in the chair.
Glenda was kind enough to show me around the salon. Apart from the mani/pedi room, which is the perfect size for a few friends to enjoy a treatment, there are two separate treatment rooms and a spray tan booth.
Serenity Spa offers a full range of beauty treatments – facials, waxing, massages, tinting, spray tans – as well as event makeup (with a mobile makeup service as an option). Haley is also well-known for her threading abilities (a method of hair removal originating in Asia).
Serenity stocks Dermalogica and Rito (a fabulous brand from Rarotonga) as well as makeup by Inika.
I’m certainly looking forward to my next appointment at Serenity Spa.
