Friendly, knowledgeable and fun!

Suzanne Mckinnon

Owner – Smart Tan Certified, Spray Tan Consultant 

Hello! My name is Suzanne. I have been involved in the tanning industry since 1998! This year marks 23 years! WOW time flies when you’re having fun!  Since this time I have owned and operated multiple tanning salons (franchised and independent) in various locales including Stoney Creek, Oakville, St. Catherine’s and the West Hamilton Mountain. Paradise TAN was my very 1st location and as such has been my baby that has grown with me over these past 20 years.

With my experience, I created Paradise TAN with the mission of a “tanning resort” that would welcome clients from Hamilton and area to escape from their daily routine for some much needed sunshine in a warm, friendly and UN-intimidating environment. I also wanted to ensure my clients have choice in what equipment they would love to use, accessibility to the newest and most exceptional skin care products in the industry, and even the type of tan you might want to achieve… whether it be UV or Sunless.

My absolute favourite part about operating Paradise TAN are definitely the clients and staff that I have gotten to know like friends and family over the years,  there are quite a few!. A majority of my clients have been tanning with me since day 1! It’s been amazing to see people grow into different chapters of their lives the entire time. Paradise TAN definitely feels like the neighbourhood pub and everyone is welcome!

As a busy Mother of 2, a wife, entrepreneur, who also thrives on an active & sporty lifestyle while also starting a new career in Real Estate, I can personally attest that I relish any chance I get to seek out a few minutes of peace and solace. This is especially true in the middle of an Ontario winter! And WOW do I ever feel like a million bucks hopping out of the tanning bed (aka sun-bed) when I am done.  A little taste of “Paradise” is the best part of my day!

Enough about me, let’s talk about you!  I’m confident that when you visit Paradise TAN you’ll have the BEST experience and from that point onward you’ll always make time for a “little taste of Paradise” yourself. So before you go, remember to sign-up for one of our promotions to try us out today!

Hope to see you soon!!!

Hi! I’m Nazli, I have been at Paradise TAN for 3+ years now! Paradise TAN has such an amazing environment that you need to come see for yourself!! All of the staff at Paradise are fully trained and certified with SMART TAN which is so comforting knowing that your technician will be able to help you with anything you need! Another amazing reason why I love working here is no one can compare to our regular lamp changes, regardless of which level you are using you are promised a fully loaded vitamin D session with lots of colour!!! I mean does it get any better???? My most favourite bed is the X7 LVL 3, I love a hot 12 minute session in paradise! It’s such a efficient and quick way to relax and get BRONZE BABY! The best features of this bed are how you can customize almost anything in the bed to your own preference, various levels of fan, facial lights etc.

Don’t let your lotion be a tanning tease, give it all you got! Achieve crazy, sexy colour with the seriously intense skincare properties of Plum in this most talked-about DHA Bronzer. My most current favourite lotion PLUMISCUOUS Containing 3 different types of exotic Plum that work together to soften and moisturize – so you can play the day (and night) away! Skincare just got a whole lot sexier with Plumiscuous

Eco-Elements: Vitamins A, C and E found in Aloe provide essential nourishment to your skin! Honestly lotion is like SHAMPOO when it comes to tanning and you wouldn’t wash your hair without SHAMPOO so make sure you come in ask about our award winning lotions!! Also don’t forget about our #1 custom spray tans just like celebrities Kim Kardashian, dancing with the stars and more use and remember you’re never fully dressed without a TAN!!! Hope to see you soon, love NAZLI XO

Smart Tan Certified, Spray Tan Artist

I love being an employee at paradise tan and being apart of the paradise tan family! All of the staff are amazing and I love seeing new and old tanning clients come in!

My favourite tanning bed is the level 2. I love going in for the maximum 15 minute tan time to relax in the warmth and fit in a quick cat nap. If I am in a rush and need a quick tanning boost I go in the level 3 for a fast tan with lower tanning time. This bed is great because it also has multiple facial and fan options. I love tanning because I always feel so much better with nice glowing skin year around and knowing I am in a controlled environment where all staff are SMART TAN certified.

Currently my favourite lotion is Escapde by Designer Skin. This lotion has a rich cream formula with quadruple bronzers and cooling essences so I get a dark tan in the beds and also stay nice and cool! This lotion is filled with high levels of Omega 3, 6 and 9 as well as Vitamin E and has an amazing smell.
