Awards were handed out to the most outstanding spas and salons in the country over a black-tie dinner held at the renowned Principal Hotel in Manchester. Over 400 guests attending the evening event, which was hosted by comedian Tom Ward.
Now in their third year, the awards are divided into three categories: spa, boutique salon (for businesses with three treatment rooms or fewer), and large salon (four treatment rooms or more). With 21 awards handed out on the night, the Professional Beauty Regional Awards celebrate those beauty providers who go above and beyond the call of duty in terms of professionalism, skill and customer service within their region.
Gaia Spa at Boringdon Hall collected the title of South West and Wales Spa of the Year, beating off stiff competition from others in the region. As winners of the Professional Beauty Regional Awards, we will now be put forward to the National Awards which take place at the end of February 2019.
Accepting the award, Diane Nettleton, Spa Director, Gaia Spa, said:
"Having won this award last year it feels an incredibly special honour to be collecting it again. I'd like to thank all our team; this award is for them. It's a big team effort and my thanks goes out to everyone who has supported us."
