A Bristol beauty business has moved to a bigger location on the high street as it continues to grow.

With help from NatWest, Pamperbanana Bodycare and Grooming has become Pamperbanana Metro Spa, providing spa and salon treatments in a luxurious and tranquil environment more than twice the size of the previous location.

The move further along Henleaze high street from its original location has enabled an increase in the number of rooms available for treatments, meaning the spa can now comfortably cater for larger groups.

General manager Janette Allan has been brought in to run the spa, which has five therapists, and there are plans to grow this number to nine.

Director Ben Hill, who owns the spa with wife Alison, comments: “We used to be a high street salon with three beauty rooms offering spa treatments without a spa environment, so we really needed to find a place to grow into so that clients could enjoy their experience in a beautiful, peaceful spa environment.

“The metro spa concept has come out of London and fits between a high street salon and a luxury day spa. Although we do not offer a pool or jacuzzi, clients are really noticing the look and feel of a top spa, which is apparent as soon as they walk through the door.

“We saw a real gap in the market to elevate what we already had. Henleaze high street is a fantastic location; it’s good for parking and is in a cosmopolitan area.”
