A Wimbledon spa has been recognised as one of the leading spas in the country by making the final of national awards in two categories.

Spa Experience by Better in Wimbledon, which is located within Wimbledon Leisure Centre and run by not-for-profit social enterprise GLL and Merton Council, has made the shortlist for Day Spa of the Year and Employer of the Year at the 2018 Professional Beauty Awards.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at Tobacco Dock on February 25.

Spa Experience by Better’s national manager Melissa Evans said: “To be shortlisted for such a prestigious industry award is a fantastic achievement and reflects that passion and commitment that the team at Spa Experience Wimbledon puts into their work every day.”

The shortlist for spa and salon categories is made up of the winners and particularly high-scoring finalists of the Professional Beauty Regional Awards which were held in October.

Finalists will now go on to be judged again in a second round which includes interviews and ‘mystery shopper’ style judging visits.

The spa offers a range of traditional treatments and also has a range of thermal facilities including a hammam suite, steam rooms, sauna, hydrotherapy pool and relaxation lounge.

Treatment prices start at £10, while a three-hour visit to the thermal suite costs £15 for concessions and £18 for non-members.
