Lavender Room Beauty Therapy Clinic SpaBeautyNZ

Lavender Room is a boutique salon based in the beautiful rural Pauatahanui village - just take a ride around the sparkling waters of the inlet to reach peaceful relaxation. The salon is housed in a historic places cottage, circa 1847. Taylor Stace Cottage was purchased and bought back to life (and out of the flood waters) by owner/operator Stephanie Manning and husband Andrew. Due to the historic nature of the cottage there are building restrictions so the cottage has retained it’s yesteryear charm - including it’s original rickety door and sash windows.
Stephanie and Nicola are both passionate about skin health and wellbeing, offering a holistic approach to skincare, they love to see their clients leaving feeling pampered and rejuvenated. Julia supports the team with reception, marketing and admin duties as well as offering a nice cuppa tea and a friendly face to customers.

"Being a small business off the beaten track can have it’s limitations, Stephanie shares, "however Lavender Room is a destination salon. We believe that the ambience and restorative qualities of our beautiful, historic cottage and our amazing skincare and relaxation treatments deliver a destination experience, complemented by the amazing walks and amenities of the village."

"We offer Spa Parties as a fun way to get together with friends or family and enjoy an afternoon of pampering, everything is taken care of including delicious food from the village restaurant."

Lavender Room has a strong community feel and support many schools and clubs with their fundraising. This year they've decided to give two ladies a chance to get some real results with their skin, giving away two courses of 8 facials to be auctioned off as part of fundraising support for two local schools.
At just three years old the business has just been awarded the Micro Business Award by Porirua Chamber of Commerce.
"This award is for a business that excels at running a big ship with a small crew. Our smallest businesses are sometimes our most dynamic, able to adapt to market trends and changes, new technology and innovation, and developing strong relationships with clients and customers" explains the Porirua Chamber of Commerce.

Stephanie continues,"Skincare is our passion - we have invested in skin scanner technology and undertaken advance training in skin analysis and cosmetic chemistry. This helps to keep the old grey matter going, with constant changes to our industry there’s a lot of knowledge to be gained from keeping up with the trends."

And of course we are huge fans of Dr Libby - such an amazing and inspiring lady, if you get a chance, we recommend you see her!

The funny thing is we have such a good reputation amongst the village, even the farm animals escape to come and see us!
