I recently attended the Meridian Spa Launch in connection with Dermalogica and although I’d seen the pictures when they listed on Salon-Finder.co.za it was so much grander in person.
I met Samantha, the owner of Meridian Spa and Yolandi, the spa manager. Samantha gave me a me a tour and I was amazed at the space and the beautiful gardens. The spa is set on a beautiful property in the heart of Bryanston, close enough to be accessible to the Sandton CBD, yet when you drive in through the gates you will feel like you are in the middle of the bush! Downstairs was a fireplace so you instantly warmed up and as I was fighting flu I was given warm bean bag for over my shoulders – there is nothing better that a spa that goes the extra mile for there clients and I believe this is what will make Meridian Spa stand out from the rest.
Apart from the amazing space, their reception desk is one of a kind. they also have 3 fire places, a Jacuzzi, 2 luxurious baths, conferencing facilities, a relaxation area and a pool – what more could you possibly need in a spa?
I was treated to a Dermalogica Microzone Treatment, which is a 20 minute treatment target on your problem areas (these treatments are perfect for in-between facials or if you have limited time available and need a quick face fix!)
To me, the best part of my experience was lying on the heated treatment bed. I really don’t like squashing on the standard white metal tables when I want to relax – they never feel sturdy and I always feel like I am going to fall over the edge! The treatment beds at Meridian are huge and so comfortable given 10 more minutes I would have been asleep!
The treatment rooms are also spacious, so you will in no way feel claustrophobic and all have views out to the gardens. The pedicure chairs are just as grand, and I will definitely be back for a pedicure as I am told Gladys is the best in Joburg.
