A colleague and I visited Brookdale after a stressful year of restructuring and hectic travel. If you are looking for a place to catch your breath, reset your health habits and get rid of that nasty mouse-muscle knot, Brookdale is the place for you.

I cannot express how wonderfully good this spa is for your soul. Not to mention your heart, well-being ... and skin. It is a treat. I've visited Brookdale on three occasions and have never been disappointed ... from the time you arrive (someone greets you at your car by your name!) till the time you leave, and absolutely everything in...

The wonderful staff, the peacefulness, the cuisine - so healthy, so delicious, the facilities, the treatments, the talks - I cannot enthuse enough about Brookdale. Best of all, we...

We were fortunate to spend a two night break at Brookdale in June and we were treated to two days of wonderful treatments administered by professional, knowledgeable staff in the most beautiful environment. Delicious food made every mealtime enjoyable! Can't wait to return

Brookdale is a little piece of heaven on earth. It restores your soul. I've been twice now and am determined to make coming here an annual pilgrimage. The beautiful setting soothes you. The staff are warm and welcoming. The food is mouth-watering and isn't anything like your stereotypical health spa deprivation meals. Brookdale reminds me that self-care isn't the same...

I had the best experience ever at Brookdale, the activities, walks,aqua aerobics and yoga. I have never done yoga before but I enjoyed every second. The staff are the friendliest, the treatments were amazing. How can I forget the food, they get the veggies from their own garden. I really loved the place, I have told my friends about it....
