Riverside Spa is hands down the best spa + massage experience I have found. While I was away in Vancouver for four years of university I refused to get any massage treatments done there since they simply did not compare and I would happily wait the weeks/months until I was back in Calgary so I could visit Riverside. The staff... More

I am a regular client of this spa and have been going for almost 10 years. The atmosphere is spot on for a spa and all of the staff are fantastic and trained very well. Out of all of my visits I have only been disappointed a couple times due to my facial being rushed and a massage therapist who... More

Yesterday I enjoyed another relaxing and soothing experience at Riverside Spa. I had a facial, pedicure and manicure with Jo, and I literally felt like time had fallen away and I was transported to paradise! My skin, toes and nails have never looked or felt this good, and I especially appreciate Jo's professional and friendly energy, the organic products, and... More

When we can make a trip to Calgary, we try to fit in a trip to this little piece of paradise. There is usually at least 3 of us, but somehow they can make it work for us. (Booked in advance and any changes made within standard policy) From the moment we walk in the door it is pure relaxation.... More

Today I had another incredible experience at Riverside Spa. When I walked into the spa I was greeted by very friendly and welcoming front desk staff; they gave me clear direction about the check in and procedure, and showed me to the change room. The spa staff are all very professional, and the facility itself beautifully decorated with a relaxing... More

The staff is not trained in professional customer service and if you have to deal with management in any way, I guarantee that you will leave with such a poor taste in your mouth, that you will feel that if you thought the spa treatment was good, that you will only remember how you were poorly treated, overpaid and bewildered...

I have been visiting this spa for years and it has never been anything but gloriously indulgent. From the minute you walk in the door until you leave you are spoiled with everything you could want in a spa. A robe and slippers are in your locker. The steam room is large and I have never shared it with anyone... More

I respect the right for people to express themselves democratically, but I cannot see one of my favourite places in the city of Calgary be left with such a review as the last one. I understand that not everyone in a city of over 1.25 million people will have the same great experience at each place reviewed on Tripadvisor, but... More

Customer Service can sometimes present challenges. We are not perfect and when we make mistakes we go above and beyond to create a positive situation for everyone involved. As you are aware booking with Tan and Nicole at certain times of the year is challenging as the spa is very busy. Most of our client’s book well in advance but... More

I'm a returning customer. Bought packages online for wife and mother. Emailed and was told there were just two spots available while we were in town, but I could not book via email. Told to call back when they opened at 8:30, so called next day at 8:30 and was told that the spots had been booked. How, when I... More

Riverside Spa’s existence is completely dependent on having customers and providing them with exceptional experiences so that they want to return and tell others. We appreciate our customers and welcome new ones. December has always been a very busy time for us and we always book appointments based on availability. Yes I was unwilling to bring additional staff in on... More

Was here for a Mothers Day gift from my hubby (and kiddo) in June 2014 and just loved the experience. I felt special and pampered the entire time. Be sure to allow extra time to enjoy the steam area, awesome showers, cozy lounge, great tea and a few yummy cookies. so great.
