This spa has everything you can ask for in a spa. The best services, great location, and a super staff. If you want a relaxing experience, this is the spa for you! All the services are superb and you can't go wrong with any of them. Pedicures, manicures, massages, and facials are all fabulous. You owe it to yourself or a loved one to come here. Mary

Fantastic Spa Experience!

I would highly recommend this day spa. From the moment you walk in there is a feeling of peace and tranquility. As you walk in this quaint spa you are welcomed by the staff and calming background music. They don't hesitate to offer you a variety of drinks which I choose the lemon ice water which arrived with a beautiful plate of cut up fresh fruit. You feel like you are the only one in the universe! Doreen and her staff are completely attentive and professional. They want to make sure you feel pampered in every way. I had the spa pedicure and manicure. It was the most relaxing and attentive service. Every detail was looked after .My pedicure was extremely attentive with a hot lava rock massage. Wow…just a wonderful adventure where I can leave all my “troubles behind” and focus on me! Thanks Doreen and staff for your attentive service and making me feel at “home”. I hope to see you all again real soon! WM

I recommend this spa's couples massages 100%. The atmosphere they provided was mind blowing between the choc strawberries and the wine and the sona and the rose petals falling from the ceiling and the !@#$%^&* best massage of my life thus far. I must say it was probally one of the best presents I could have given her to say I Love You. Glad I gave the love of my life a !@#$%^&* good present and I even got a massage out of it! Totally recommend this spa experience to the google nation. thanks...greg

with this day spa with my hair nor massage. The massage was wonderful. The lockers where stocked beautifully with lovely robe and slippers, certainly clean and plush. My hair was perfect and came out just the way I wanted it to. I also had a great facial and pedicure. ...‎ 

......this was the nicest staff I have seen and experienced at any spa. As a frequent spa hopper, I have to say I will not be hopping anywhere else. The spa is very relaxing and not intimidating at all. My facial with Dana was great and my massage with Cheri was unbelievable. A true spa finder's gem!...Abbeylee

... a GREAT experience at this salon! I had a massage by Mike - he was very courteous and excellent at giving the massage. My back was so tense before but I feel wonderful now!! I went on a Saturday and the place looked like it was booked ... Betsy

... with their superb massage!! Mike did a great job. They have a very welcoming and professional atmosphere. Definately, the best in town!!!! Don't forget ... ChrissyH

tinkerclaire spa go a must -  December 2011
Comment = I have been a customer of the Branford River Spa for a few years now and would like to compliment Doreen and her staff. The spa is lovely, well appointed. Doreen is an excellent business owner. She and her staff are extremely customer oriented. The treatments/spa menu is diverse and professionally done. They treat me like I am special to them each time I go. I highly recommend them!


........I had the mystical healing package at this spa last week and I feel amazing! The infared sauna, the mud wrap, mud jacuzzi bath, facial and full body massage were all wonderful! Thank you for making me feel like a million bucks! I can't wait to come back for another treatment!!.......Laura

 Maura's spa party with friends!!!!!

....WOW! I was more than impressed! I made an appointment for myself and 2 friends (all 1st time to this spa). We've been to many spas and without a doubt this was a pleasant surprise. Each of the services over-reached our expectations; massage(hot towels, heated bed,aromatherapy), mini facial (not so mini and fabulous), herbal hydrotherapy bath treatment (OMG - loved it), anti aging facial with collagen (I did not have this, but my friend said it was Fabulous and she will come back for another). In summary .... a Wonderful Day! Huge thank yous to Yolanda (for my facial) Olga (massage and hydrotherapy) and Doreen for a wonderful day!! Sincerely,  Maura
