I went first to have my hair done and manicure whilst she went downstairs and got treated as a princess for 2 hours. She loved it so much that I decided to celebrate her birthday there last month with all her friends. It was great they have there nails painted, facials with cucumber, hair, makeup, massage and her favorite was the sparkling tattoos. They provide snakes (cupcakes, sandwiches, sweets, drinks, cookies and kids champagne). They also offer a photograph who then creates a wonderful album. I recommend this place to every mum.
