I travel for my company and have limited time off during my travels, I've used tanning salons all over the country. I tan for health reasons, as well as some "peace & quiet" away from work... Ultimate Tanning is a top notch operation both product and service!! I won't use any other salon when I'm working in Wilmington no matter what "deal" may pass my way.

Ultimate Tanning is the ONLY place and the BEST place to tan in Wilmington, NC. I've tried many tanning salons in the past but none that compare to Ultimate Tanning! The owner, Charles Swain, provides the cleanest, most professional environment to tan in with the latest tanning products available, a variety of tanning beds to choose from and so much more. Each tanning bed is frequently maintained with hot, new bulbs. At Ultimate Tanning, you will NEVER have to worry about your tan fading or equalizing because of old bulbs. So many average tanning salons are guilty of taking your money but seldom change their bulbs, making you feel like you've reached your tanning peak. Ultimate Tanning is far better than average. Convenience of location is important, and Ultimate Tanning is very conveniently located, however, I live 20+ minutes from the salon but still choose to tan only at Ultimate Tanning (even though there is another salon just five minutes from my home) because of Charles' commitment to his customers as well as the quality of his salon. Don't get too caught up in convenience and DRIVE THE EXTRA MILE if you can to enjoy the best tan in Wilmington! Ultimate Tanning has been in business for more than TWENTY YEARS. That alone speaks volumes!

Pros: - Extremely clean - Professional environment - Latest tanning products - Variety of tanning beds - Very friendly staff - Always on time (no scheduling issues) - Bulbs changed frequently

Cons: None!

THE BEST TANNING SALON not only in wilmington but in NC. I have tanned in several salons in wilmington as well as other cities within the state. NONE compare to Ultimate Tanning. The service is always prompt and friendly not to mention the quality of the service you receive is well above average. Very clean and welcoming atmosphere!

Awesome service and great beds...what more could you ask for. Well, I love the fact that the company owned and operated by a brother in Christ!! I can lay in the tanning bed and listen to K-Love!! That is what sold me!! Thank you Charles for being the man of God that you were called to be, thank you for being a witness in the Kingdom of God, and thank you for providing a great place to get a great tan!!!

Pros: Great Friendly People, prices, atmosphere, great beds!!
