About Us

At SK, we have an appreciation for the unique qualities of the individual, our staff and our customers. We understand that all needs are different and that no experience is the same, it is our core philosophy to remain bespoke and people focused.

Offering a unique concept in providing very tailored treatments amidst luxurious surroundings, SK is aimed at three distinct types of client; those looking for relaxation, pampering and well being; those seeking answers and results to skincare concerns; and those who enjoy regular grooming but want an enhanced treatment.

A carefully chosen product range includes the natural Pevonia Botanica skincare, fashionable OPI nailcare, bareMinerals Make-up, Edwin Jagger grooming for men as well as Minx Nail Art, Fake Bake and Lash Perfect.

SK has partnered with Cathedral Dental for Teeth Whitening and Botox treatments, Julia Hadley for Hylauronic Acid Based Fillers plus 5 local prestigious hotels; each with a unique spa package offering.

SK, committed to the individual.
