Client Testimonials

Susan Koen is the only beauty therapist I will ever use. I moved to Plettenberg Bay three years ago and intended to just have one facial with Susan. There was such a radical difference, that I have continued every 4 to 6 weeks! It’s my ‘spoiling’and I come out of her beautiful, peaceful oasis feeling so wonderful! Her products are really good and she knows her stuff. You just have to look at her own skin to know you can trust her recommendations for you personally. Susan’s prices are fair and her kind and friendly disposition makes this an experience I won’t cut out of my regime. I recommend her to anybody, both young or old.

Colleen Colette

I have the highest regard for Susan’s abilities, professionalism and high standard of beauty treatments. I do no hesitate to recommend her and the easy access to her salon in Goose Valley is an added bonus.

Cheryl Ward - Smith

I have been going to Susan regularly for facials for the past 8 years. She is very knowledgeable on all of her products and I trust her implicitly to give me the best advice as to what treatments I should have. She is an extremely caring therapist.

Meg Gerber

Fabulous, efficient and clean. The best service I’ve had

Eileen Grosskopff

La-vita-e-Bella is a state of the art salon where owner and therapist Susan Koen works her incredible magic with such professionalism, attention to detail and loving care, that the experience feels like a holiday rather than a visit to the salon. From the ambiance, to the range of high tech equipment and exquisite products, I would highly recommend a visit!

Jackie Dent

I started going to Salon La-Vita-e-Bella approximately 5 years ago. I went in trepidation as my skin is allergic to so many products. Susan Koen assured me that her products were excellent and that I should be fine. She was right! After each treatment Susan would phone to check that all was ok. I have never looked back. Susan is a caring person who doesn’t rush through her treatments. She also has every kind of treatment machine you can think of and is so well trained on their uses. Her Salon is the perfect set up for a relaxing hour or two of pampering. I won’t ever go to another Salon.

Hillary Baak

Susan Koen is one of the MOST highly qualified beauty therapists in the Plettenberg Bay area, and she is extremely caring and friendly. I have been doing all my specialized facials with her for the past couple of years. I can highly recommend her, as I know that my skin looks radiant, very healthy and most people says that I look 10 years younger than what I really am. Thanks to Susan's care, product knowledge and professionalism in this field.
