Orchids Retreat

Muddy says: Orchids Retreat is a peaceful sanctuary owned by an award-winning beauty therapist, a fantastic spot where you can treat yourself to a bit of me-time.


This spot is a little oasis of calm in (the already pretty chilled out) Lymington. Orchids Retreat covers a huge range of beauty services, all undertaken by super-professional and well decorated (seriously, SO many awards) beauty therapist, Diana Jenner.

With a broad variety of treatments you can book in for gel manicures, full body waxing and facial threading and massages (including one called Total Bliss which sounds like… BLISS), meaning you can tick a load of your self-care to-do list in one sitting. AND, treatments spaces are available to 9pm, which is music to any working person’s ears.

If your face needs a bit of TLC (and with the stresses and strains of life, who doesn’t?) Diana also has a number of facial options, ranging from a Microzone to target a problem area, right up to a 6-week course of Active Resurfacing. Whether your concern is hyperpigmentation, youth-boosting or problem-prone skin, she’ll be able to consult you and tailor treatments to ease your particular maladies (while simultaneously giving you a good dose of relaxation time… ahhhhh!)

Products used in the salon include OPI, MAC and Dermalogica and Diana also has a weekly residency at London’s The Soho Hotel, every Wednesday from 8am to 8pm.
