Noula Friend

Clinic Manager

As a young girl growing up in Johannesburg, South Africa, Noula can remember when she was asked what she wanted to do in the future. Her response was always, ‘To help and take care of people and make them feel better about themselves’.

Noula decided to study beauty therapy and gained an internationally recognised diploma from Switzerland in 2000. Her passion to help people continued into hospitality when she joined her first cruise ship as a therapist and quickly progressed to Spa Manager on board the luxurious Silversea and Queen Mary 2 ships, travelling around the world for 5 years. During this time, Noula interacted with fellow crew members and passengers from all over the world which was an invaluable experience, learning about many different cultures and nationalities.

When the time came to retire from cruise ships, she joined a 5-star hotel on Park Lane in London as Spa Manager and had the opportunity to travel to Asia, USA and the Caribbean to provide training to some of the hotel’s sister properties.

Noula spent time as a Spa Manager in Brighton and Tunbridge Wells and was previously Clinic Manager in an aesthetic clinic in Brighton.

Noula is delighted to be a part of Bella Vou’s vision of providing an all inclusive and highly individual experience. Noula and her team are committed to providing you with the highest level of care and support and making your journey with us positive and memorable. Noula is a mum of two children who all love to enjoy and explore the beauty of the English countryside.
