Bella Essenza opened its doors at the end of March 2013.

Ulandi Du Plessis, owner and therapist, studied at the Isa Carstens Academy of Health and Skin Care and completed her Masters with honours in advanced clinical therapies and spa management.

Ulandi travelled the world while working for Steiner TransoceanLtd onboard Royal Carribean cruise liners. She returned home after 2 and a half years abroad and joined SKIN Wellness Spa’s and clinics as a therapist, and then became a therapist, clinic manager and eventually operations manager before opening the Urban Spa in 2006.

Six years later, with a growing family that demanded more of her time, she sold the spa and opened up her home-based skin care clinic called Bella Essenza, in Durbanville.
