An unassuming shop front at the far end of the opulent Tannery atrium is the door to the wonderland of Beauty at the Tannery. As you step in, a soft voiced receptionist leads you through beautiful double doors to the waiting area, where you can relax on a soft velvet sofa in front of a gas fire before beginning your treatment.

Beauty at the Tannery specialises in all your beauty essentials. The treatment menu is overflowing with exciting options for your body and face. Book in a rejuvenating full body wrap, a manicure, a spray tan, or even a hydrotherapy session; there really is much to choose from. Beauty at the Tannery also offers tailor made options for men, and the entire spa can be booked for private events (a popular spot for bridal parties and ladies get-togethers we hear!).

Each customer here is treated with the utmost respect and made to feel special from the very beginning of the experience to the very end. Whether you are coming in for a daylong indulgence package or popping by for a quick facial, the highly trained team of therapists will treat you like royalty.

To provide customers with an oasis from the stresses of daily life was at the very heart of the vision for Beauty at the Tannery. Owner Tara Harris created the day spa as a response to the Christchurch earthquakes. She envisioned a space where people can be completely looked after, where all your senses are stimulated and from where you emerge feeling rejuvenated and energised.

Once you’ve been to Beauty at the Tannery, you’ll find that Tara succeeded. A visit to this unique world-class spa is as close as you can come to emerging like a butterfly after a restorative and transformative escape in a cocoon.
