ATOB meet the team

We are very excited to announce that our wonderful employee Rhiannon will be getting married next month, and with that have decided to do a little story on her !

Rhiannon

How I came to ATOB
I had a friend that worked at A Touch of Beauty, who I knew was leaving and knew enjoyed working here, so I rang on the off chance that they would need someone to replace her.

Why I love working at ATOB
I look forward to coming to work everyday at ATOB as when I enter I’m entering into a well organised work place with a beautiful and supportive team and an extremely generous boss. At ATOB there are always regular friendly clients which is a joy to see them always returning.

Favourite Book
I’m not greatly into books, however my most recent read was “I quit sugar” by Sarah Wilson. This was an interesting read and inspired me to cut back on my sugar intake.

Favourite travel destination

This has to be England, I enjoy going home and seeing family and friends and the energy and vibrancy of the country and all the amazing history that it has to offer. I do not miss the miserable weather however.

Rhiannon is a delight to work with she is always smiling always helpful and most professional with all of our guests. I am thrilled to have her part of the ATOB team, stay tuned for wedding photos!

Rhiannon’s favourite product?
My favourite Dermalogica product is Daily Resurfacer because it has fabulous results.
My favourite Sodashi product is Vanilla Body Butter as it feels so luxurious/

Rhiannon’s favourite treatment?
My favourite Dermalogica treatment is The Age Smart Facial as it delivers wonderful results.
My favourite Sodashi treatment is The Vanilla Body Bliss – an all over body exfoliation which is soothing & calming.

Group Spa Bookings at ATOB

Group Bookings for Spa Treatments Adelaide

What a lovely gesture for Danielle, bride to be organised by her friends, they surprised her with a booking at ATOB for back massages + pedicures.

The girls bought in their own food platters and we supplied Champagne! It was an awesome day.  They even arrived in a stretch limousine porshe!

It got us thinking about how much we love looking after beautiful groups of friends who like to spoil each other and enjoy each others company.
So If you or your friends have a special event that you want to celebrate, or maybe you just haven’t caught up with each other for some quality down time recently, we would love to take care of you.

Feel free to give us a call at the Spa and we will organise a wonderful morning or afternoon for you and your friends.

The spa experience from a clients eyes.

A spa experience with a difference

We received a beautiful email from a very happy client yesterday and thought we would share it verbatim so here you go.

Dear Joanna and Victoria,

I had to write to you and share just how exquisite and magical my experience at A touch of Beauty on Tuesday was, but first to give you some context.

This Christmas I was overjoyed to learn that my Husband had organised for me to spend four and a half hours at your beautiful Spa being pampered from head to foot. Particularly overjoyed as Spa treatments used to be one of my favourite treats for myself but lately with multiple business interests and two small children 7 and 4, finding me time hasn’t been on top of the priority list.

So I rang and booked in for as soon as I could and I have to say I was completely overwhelmed by how nurturing and relaxing my visit was.
I arrived and was greeted by Joanna and Hayley and offered a cold sparkling mineral water whilst filling out my forms before being lead off to the treatment room, given that I was booked in for the whole box and dice starting with a body salt scrub and a body wrap I was pleasantly surprised to find that the first room I was in had the shower attached in the room so there was no need to wander up and down a hall in between treatments. Hayley by the way has absolutely magic hands and by the end of the salt scrub and wrap I am sure I had fallen asleep at least 2 or 3 times.

Then I was lead into a second treatment room for a full body massage before having three of you treating me all at the same time , I think I may now have some concept of what it feels like to be royalty as there is no other way to explain the sheer bliss of receiving a Pedicure, manicure and facial all at the same time whilst lying down.

But imagine my delight when after my Manicure and Pedicure were finished a final delicious thermal treatment was applied to my feet and hands, the only way I can describe it is like having your body encased in hot liquid silk it was amazing.

Thank you all again so much, It’s my 40th later this year and my 10th wedding anniversary so I am sure to be back for this treat again very soon.

Regards Simone Douglas.

Christmas Celebrations for 2014

ATOB Christmas Celebration for 2014


2014 has been rather a busy year for the girls here at ATOB

We have undergone major refurbishment, giving the spa a new and modern face-lift creating that beautiful atmosphere of luxury and indulgence.

We also introduced many new products within our Sodashi and Dermalogica Ranges as well as offering new beauty services and packages

We also introduced new members of the ATOB team and regularly took time out to participate with events for charities which we support, for example taking part in Walk4Brain Cancer charity walk.

After such a busy year, we were looking forward to a fabulous Christmas Celebration for 2014 and we were fortunate enough to visit the notorious ORANA Restaurant with Chef Jock Zonfrillo, located in Rundle Street.

Jock Zonfrillo

For those who haven’t heard of Chef Jock Zonfrillo, he has comprised a two-level restaurant with a focus on local ingredients and dual dining. Jock’s success has blossomed since winning the Best Restaurant (read more here), guest appeared on the Discovery Channel, and various press articles from both Melbourne and Adelaide Newspapers. 

Within this two-level, dual restaurant the downstairs level, called Street-ADL is well-known for its informal dining, beverages and ‘street food’. The upstairs called ORANA, (which is where we were), included an intimate restaurant offering more complex. Therefore for our tasting menus we would receive matching wines to go with our food, the quality and professionalism Jock and his team portray is simply amazing and effortless. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Below are just a few snaps from the night, as well as a few pics with Jock Zonfrillo himself;

ATOB Christmas


We all had a really great time together celebrating yet another year of business and would like to thank all of our clients, blog readers, friends and family for all of their love and support. Cannot wait to see how our team and business grows in the future.
