I've been going to the spa since it opened eight years ago. The atmosphere is calming, the staff is welcoming, the treatments are wonderful. When you're finish your treatments, there is this great "relaxation room", where you can sink down in large cozy chaises and spend some unhurried "me" time.

I have been going to this spa for over a year now and will continue to do so. I have loved every minute of every experience here. From entering the door to leaving it. The staff is very friendly and cater to your needs. Every treatment I have had has been pleasant one. From the massages to facials I have... More

One of my favorite places to go and get a relaxing pedicure. I got the monthly special Spa Pedicure and was rewarded with a cooling and festive scent of Peppermint. Really happy to have a good soak, massage and mask on my weary toes - especially this time of year. I got a sparkling red toenail polish and am ready... More

I've visited the Spa of Essex several times, and I've never been disappointed - until my latest visit last weekend. I had a stomach bug, and I thought I was over it, but I became sick during my massage. The staff IMMEDIATELY assumed I was pregnant, discontinued my massage, charged me full price, and forced me to sign a disclaimer... More

I received a gift card so I tried the Spa of Essex. By outward appearances, it is quite lovely. On the plus side, the treatment areas were spotless. However, I had a spa pedicure and gel manicure. I'd hate to see what a basic pedicure was because this spa pedicure was bare bones for $75. No massage, no lotion, no... More

Loud inattentive service. Warm, old water in relaxation room. Reluctant to correct a terrible manicure.

If you need/ want a good facial and don't want to go far, this is a good bet. Clean, lovely facilities. Soundproofing is a problem, though. They have a lot of services here, and a knowledgeable staff.

This spa offers a variety of wonderful services. I have been many times and love the serenity one feels the minute you enter the spa. The relaxation rooms both before and after offer an added bonus to superior staff services. I highly recommend this spa.

A peaceful day in a beautiful atmosphere. The glorious visit started with a warm massage table and a cozy comforter. I would have been happy to just lie nestled between the warmth and wieght but then the 90 massage corrected the pain and discomfort of weeks of traveling. I have had many massges but this was truly theraputic. After the... More
