That I most certainly was when I finally booked an appointment at Beauty at the Tannery to use the very generous voucher my brother and sister in-law gave me for my birthday.
As soon as you walk in you immediately feel like an A-Lister; the modern, fresh interior oozes style and sophistication and the staff are genuinely kind and very professional. After being checked in I was led through to the lounge area before being shown to the changing area where I was given a locker and changed into a lush white robe and spa slippers. There is a shower for clients to use before or after a treatment which is a great idea, especially if you have somewhere to be after a massage that leaves you a little oily.
While waiting for my treatment (after filling in the obligatory new client paperwork) I enjoyed a glass of water infused with mint, orange and raspberries while catching up on the latest and best fashion and lifestyle mags in the lounge area – you’d be forgiven for thinking you were actually in someones plush living room. After a short wait – I could have quite happily sat there for longer! – I was introduced to the lovely Sarah who would be completing my treatment. I was lucky enough to be enjoying Beauty at the Tannery’s signature treatment, Grace Yourself. This was 90 minutes of pure bliss! A full body massage with exfoliation as well as a facial where I was wrapped up a little like a mummy.
Once my treatment was complete I enjoyed a delicious herbal tea (you can choose from a variety of flavours) and special fortune telling chocolate! My skin felt AMAZING and I was incredibly relaxed and rejuvenated. So much so that I am now cheating on my regular beautician and going to Beauty at the Tannery for facials every two months!!
I have been lucky enough to experience some beautiful spas in the UK and Beauty at the Tannery is right up there with the best of them. It is by far the most impressive in Christchurch and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
