The Beauty Corner at the bluewater Chef Competition


Welcome to the Beauty Corner at bluewater’s annual chef competition on Friday 31st March at Secrets de Cuisine.

Bluewater is excited to welcome our favourite local beauty experts to the annual chef competition hosted at Secrets de Cuisine in Antibes.

Our beauty experts will be on hand to offer massages, manicures and guy grooming services. Those who RSVP to the event via the Club page will be given priority access at the beauty corner. So please don’t delay, RSVP today!

Natalie Boddy – Harmonie Rock Therapy Beauty Massage Treatments and Training Centre

Natalie Boddy has over 10 years’ experience in massage therapy and, here at bluewater, we can attest to her fabulous deep tissue massages as well as the heated rock massage – total heaven! She created the Harmonie Rock Therapy Beauty Massage Treatments & Training Centre in Antibes in 2015, and she is ready to meet crew in her salon to share her talents, by teaching the art of massage.

The Introductory Relaxing Massage Course is tailored for superyacht crew; having a crew member onboard with a massage certificate is an advantage for owners and charter guests. Massage courses in the yachting industry are extremely helpful and are a great added skill that can help give an edge to your CV.

Natalie’s own CV is very prestigious, having managed the 5-star Hotel du Cap Eden Roc Spa in Antibes; she has a diploma in massage and has also completed her teacher training, making her more than qualified to offer advice and guidance to those wanting to pursue a masseuse career. Please speak to Natalie on the day about her training courses and to discuss what treatments she can offer your guests onboard.


JP – Antibes’ Best Barber

JP has been working as a barber for more than 17 years in Antibes and knows the yachting industry well including what is required for grooming on board. You will often see his store 21 Rue du Général d’Andreossy, rammed with crew needing to be spruced up to yacht-ready perfection! He is there to advise and enlighten you on what the owners want, what the owners definitely don’t want, and how to help keep your individual style whilst pertaining to the strict grooming requirements of working on a luxury yacht.

JP is welcoming, chatty and clearly popular amongst the crew. When bluewater sat down with him recently to discuss our 7th annual Chef Competition we were approached by a young yachtie, fresh from his STCW training who wanted to thank JP for his advice, clearly happy with his new groomed style and on his way to his dream superyacht job. Once again JP had worked his magic and made another happy customer.

JP tells us he is excited to come and be part of our Chef Competition once again, as it’s a crazy day but a lot of fun!
The girls of bluewater may not have any need for your beard trimming services! but we are excited to have you join us again and trim our crew to perfection.

If you haven’t already registered for bluewater’s annual chef competition please do so as soon as possible to ensure your lunch voucher is reserved. Crew who pre-register will be given priority for the beauty corner.

RSVP via your Club page.
