Havanatan was created by Dawn Thirsk back in 2008 when she realized after stand-up tanning for a Cuban vacation, that a beautiful tropical alternative to lay down tanning would be perfect for Camrose.

With a city full of snowbirds, and sun filled vacations being so popular every winter, the concept of getting the important base tan in an average of 10  -  5  to 10 minute sessions was something she knew people would love. Although the business started as strictly "a place to tan", she's researched the good, bad and the ugly of UV exposure and hopes she can educate everyone on the benefits of getting enough UV light, whether it's from the sun or from Havanatan. Not only does

UVB light produce mega amounts of Vitamin D, UV exposure helps with depression, certain skin disorders, and S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder).

Please don't forget....moderation is the key in everything you do in life including UV exposure of any kind.

Most importantly,  the #1 rule with indoor tanning and outdoor UV exposure is: DO NOT SUNBURN!!


That being said, it's because of all of our wonderful and loyal clients, and Dawn's hardworking staff, that  things are going great!  We've gone from 1800 sq ft, an initial 3 Suncapsule stand-up booths to adding another 1100 sq ft, 4 more Suncapsule Stand-ups, a UV Leg Tanner, and a 2 person Far Infrared Sauna.
PLUS...check out our swim and beachwear in our little BORN TO BEACH BOUTIQUE, our Sarah n dippity GEL NAIL SALON and our ESTHETICIAN Jill of Sugartree Esthetics.
