Renee Elliffe - Spa Owner & Advanced Skin Specialist                           

Speciality: Advanced skin treatments

Welcome, my name is Renee. My husband Kelvin and I have three children. Being a mum has been one of the best highlights of my life and I feel so blessed !!

The opportunity came up in 2017 to take over Sanctum Beauty Therapy & Spa . This was perfect timing as I was ready for a new adventure and challenge.

I first trained as a Beauty Therapist in Auckland 27 years ago, graduating as the top therapist of the year. I love people and this is what encouraged me to become a therapist.

My passion is in advanced skin treatments; helping people achieve results with their skin and taking them on a skin journey. Skin Needling, IPL Skin Rejuvenation and Medi-Peels are my main focus targeting areas from ageing skin through to acne, scars and pigmentation. 

My hope for you as a client of ours is when you walk through our doors you are welcomed and made to feel special. We value our clients and I thank you for trusting our team to look after you and your loved ones.


Rozell Botha - Advanced Senior Therapist

Speciality: IPL Hair Removal, Nails & Facials

Hi my name is Rozell. I am married to my wonderful husband Hannes, and we have two amazing teenage children, Anica and Luan. We immigrated as a family 4 years ago from South Africa and the Bay has been our home for the last 3 years.

On my days off you can find my family and I out on the boat deep sea fishing. I also love to get creative making old furniture look new again.

I have been an advanced senior therapist at Sanctum since 2018. I qualified as a Beauty & Massage therapist 12 years ago, and also qualified as a Nail Technician 15 years ago. Over this past year at Sanctum I have completed my IPL training and dermal needling training.

My favourite product range is Aspect Dr because of its active ingredients that are specially formulated to communicate with your cells, leaving us with amazing results.



Toni Stuart - Beauty Therapist 

Speciality: Massage, Body Spa Treatments & Nails

Hi I’m Toni. My family consists of my lovely partner Damian and two children, Ella who is 7 and Levi who just turned 1. I grew up on a dairy farm and orchard out in Te Puke and have lived in the Bay my entire life.  

On my days off my family and I enjoy spending time together, baking and being out in nature.

I have been an Intermediate therapist at Sanctum since 2018, leaving for 10 months while I had Levi.  I trained as a Beauty Therapist but continue to up-skill since working at Sanctum.

I enjoy massage as I love the Pure Fiji products we get to use at Sanctum. They are really beautiful products with delicious scents that feel so lovely on the skin.


Sharon Barnes - Receptionist 

Hello I’m Sharon. I live with my husband Wayne in Tauranga. We have two amazing sons together that have both left home, Curtis has just graduated with his degree and Riley is studying in Hamilton.

On my days off I love listening to music, going to the beach, gardening, doing yoga and just spending time with my family.

Before starting at Sanctum I trained and worked as an early childhood teacher for 24 years. I have been a receptionist at Sanctum since 2017 now and love being a part of the team.
