Life in Bermuda might seem to visitors as all fun and laid back, and that’s true that the sun, the amazing beaches and the beautiful water make everything easier. But even we, once in a while, need to be looked after and what’s better than a having your feet and hands taken care of.
The good thing is that there are many places where you can get pampered on the island, especially the luxurious hotels and resorts. But there is somewhere that was voted the best place for a mani or a pedi by the Best of Bermuda Awards of The Bermudian and it’s Gillian’s Face and Body Clinic.
Everything is great at Gillian’s, from the location to the staff and the many services it offers. Just getting on the South Shore Road to get out of Hamilton for five minutes is a relaxing treatment on its own. Once you arrive to the traditional Bermuda cottage where the holistic spa is hosted, and step inside the décor of soft greens, gold and earth tones, ornaments and antique furnitures, you know that you are going to are in for a treat.
Owned by Gillian, an English experienced beauty therapist, the clinic is not only the best place for a mani or a pedi, it also knows how to make you feel special. On arrival, you are the most important person in the world before you even started your treatment. Waiting here is not an issue since you are offered an assortment of cold and hot beverages, some delicious signature cookies and a heated neck collar to start relaxing straight away.
The service is outstanding and from the start until the end, you are the unique focus point of the staff. If there is somewhere on the island where you can certainly feel like you are royalty, then Gillian’s Face and Body Clinic definitely is the place. In every room, the atmosphere is perfectly built with incense or white sage burning a delicious aroma, soothing music and flickering candles. You will feel as if you step in a world of peace and quiet!
In fact, the magic of Gillian’s Clinic is that you feel relaxed and calm the minute you step inside. The setting, the professionalism of the staff and the sense of serenity have a lot to do with it. It is easy in such an environment to restore harmony and balance to your life. Everyone can benefit of this, not only women but also men and kids.
Details are probably what sets this place aside from all the other great pampering spas on the island. Here, each of the seven rooms available for treatment has a hand painted mural that was designed by the owner herself. The Clinic also has a duo room, a spacious place for couples, friends or even small parties, In the duo room, you can select the treatments you want and their duration.
The award of best place for mani and pedi is also due to the ultimate pedicure treatment offer by Gillian’s. The Pedicure Supreme uses green tea mint products to exfoliate the foot, remove dead skin and dry cuticles, as well as soften cracked heels and the sole.
Then a foot mask and a heel recovery cream are applied to perfect the treatment. The Supreme also includes a lower leg and hydrating foot massage, a quick hand, shoulder and scalp massage as well as polish. Everything you need to get back on the road refreshed!
