Meet the Spa Team
The Owner & Head Esthetician / Spray Tan Expert

Meet Natalie

A licensed Esthetician of 15 years, with a medical spa background. Over eleven years ago I decided to look into the world of sunless tanning. I began to research the latest techniques on the market after years of recommending alternatives to the dangers of sun exposure for purposes tanning: many of which are survivors of skin cancer, or suffer sun-damaged skin. In July of 2009, I then established Golden Reef Tanning following a year of long & tenuous devotion to learning all about the sunless tanning industry, including the training and certification processes.

For a time I decided to put less focus on my medical esthetics background, & focus solely on becoming an experienced airbrush-tanning expert. It was important for me to dedicate myself completely to airbrushing tanning to give my tanning clients 100% devotion to their needs; making sure my clients are satisfied and doing whatever possible to quickly resolve any  issues, should they arise.


Consequently,  Golden Reef Airbrush Spray Tanning has become one of the areas best known custom spray tan establishments in the community, with thousands of satisfied customers and has an excellent reputation for being dedicated to remaining--Simply the best!


After many years of tanning the lovely ladies of the East Bay Area, we expanded Golden Reef into a full service Luxury Skin and Body Spa. With an experienced, passionate team of dedicated Estheticians, we are able to provide Benicia with a beautiful beachy sanctuary getaway to fulfill all their beauty needs.
