BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE. I attempted to get my fiancee a gift card for the holidays. Their online site didn't work. Their automated phone system didn't work either. When I finally got a hold of a 'customer care' rep, I requested they waive their "$5 shipping fee" for the inconvenience. THEY REFUSED. Wrote to Burke Williams CEO Bill Armour about the issue and poor customer service. LETTER IGNORED.

Apparently, Burke Williams doesn't care for Valued Customers.

You have a choice in day spas in SoCal, including Le Petite Retreat, Voda Spa, and let's not forget the wonderful Glen Ivy Day Spa in beautiful Corona, CA.

Awesome place to go and get away from it all! It's so nice to have an upscale spa FINALLY in Torrance that you can go to and have all of your cares simply melted away. They offer all the services you would expect at a spa and have their own specialties. I recommend the Hunter's Retreat.

This is, by far, the best place to get a massage ever. The prices are high, but worth it with the courtesy and experience you receive.

Great massage therapists and lots of amenities. This is the best spa in the South Bay. I love the quiet room for reading and napping. It's a great escape without the hassle of traveling.

The location and services are great. However, I went to the spa with my brother and boyfriend and we were sitting on the outdoor patio area (one of the ONLY two areas in the spa where males and females can relax together) when we were kicked out of the area by a burke williams staff member to allow 3 angry females to eat lunch . The area is not an area which can be scheduled or booked ahead of time. It is a first come first serve patio. We were then forced to sit in the indoor area where everyone waits for their treatments. The spa is not made for males and females to enjoy together!!!

As a Burke Williams member for two years, you get 20% off any treatment for being a member. They give you you a booklet with which they call, "SPECIAL DISCOUNT COUPONS." For an additional 20% off for a selection of spa treatments. 40% off total for being a member. 20% PLUS an additional 20% off your members price. I have always been given 40% off in these instances. I was not given this courtesy. I know the ENGLISH language. Obviously they do NOT. I will never get another service from them again. And I will NOT renew with them next year. I am so DISAPPOINTED.

This spa has everything you need to relax and enjoy including a jacuzzi and steam room. There is a quiet room to sit and relax uninterrupted...and of course, amazing services. I suggest their signature services, for something special.

my experience at Burke Williams was a great one, when you arrive in the door they great you with a warm smile, then take you around the facility if you have never been there before. They offer you plenty of lemonade, coffee, tea, their special spa water and plenty of fresh fruit. This was my first birthday bath which was great, it's very relaxing and semi private, ladies this is a great way to move into your massage phase. take advantage of there quite room or the outdoor patios they have where lunch can be served if you order or bring your own. they really make you feel at home. I go at least twice a year and the prices are great for all of the services they provide. just wonderful

I use to go to the one in Santa Monica. But i get to find out Torrance also has a Burke Williams. Well I have to say I love it, everyone is just so nice and professional! My facial was great, But my massage!! was excellent, they are professional. I totally recommend my massage therapist name Flauia, yes she has a strange name but she is really good!. I recommend Burke Williams to everyone.

I?d never been to a spa before, but when I was in Massage School I?d heard that this was the place to go and the place to be. I had to see what it was all about. The minute I walked in, I felt like royalty. The smell of lavender was seeping through the cracks of the waiting room and into the general check-in lobby and the lighting boasted luxury. The staff was soft-spoken and kind and very professional. I was given a tour of all of their amenities and was told that because I?d spent over a certain amount, I was able to access all of their amenities, which includes the Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, plush hooded terry cloth bathrobes, citrus water, fruit, and a locker. I was told I could stay as long as I?d like. You?d better believe I did. I got my manicure complete with a paraffin hand-dip and proceeded to enjoy every single thing that I could. Following the self-pampering, I took a nap in one of their comfy la-z-boy chairs before waking up, purchasing a heatable lavender-filled and super soft lamb, and leaving several hours after having completed my manicure. AMAZING! Great facility, great staff , GREAT STUFF!

Pros: Access to many fabulous amenities after spending over certain amount ona service.

Cons: Having to purchase lunch if you stay too long. LOL.

I have been going to Burke Williams for years. I was thrilled to hear they finally opened a spa in the South Bay. Frankly, Santa Monica became a little run-down and the services were going down-hill so I stopped going there and started going to the Block of Orange Burke. But that was quite a trek, as was Pasadena.
I must admit, they are very pricey and it's fairly annoying, but the therapists are very professional and communicative, the spa is beautiful and the women's locker room is very nice and clean.
I always appreciate being pampered, and Burke Williams Torrance does an excellent job at just that.
I would have rated them 5 stars, but again, they are too pricey, so I am not able to go as much as I'd like and need; therefore, I rate them 4 stars.
++Go to the Spa during "off" times because it is ridiculously crowded during regular hours, and it's not worth going because it's not enjoyable nor is it relaxing at all (it is the equivalent of sitting on a full flight coming home from NY. Ugh).

My boyfriend had given me a gift certificate from Burke Williams a year ago for my birthday so I went there and got a facial. I received their nourishing facial which involved 4 layers of masks. It was such a wonderful experience. The spa is very luxurious and the staff are so nice and friendly.

I wanted to try Burke Williams out since I have heard great things about them from so many people. A friend and I went one day and I was shocked at how expensive they are. I had their nourishing facial and it cost me $135. The facial was good and, I admit, they do have luxurious amenities, but their prices prevent me from going back.

Come here to be indulged. It's a great way to relax after a stressful time at work. The staff is so helpful, and the spa is incredibly maintained. There is free parking in the public lots. Dont come on a Friday afternoon or a weekend--its a zoo.

Prices at Burke Williams are on the expensive side at over $100 an hour for a massage. However, you not only get a wonderful massage, you also get to hang out in the Burke Williams Spa, which offers a steam room, sauna, and small cold pool. No need to bring any toiletries as shampoo, conditioner, and even brushes and lotions are available. Fruit and water are also available for snacks. A relaxing place to go.

The santa monica location has two jacuzzis (one for quiet, one for talking), a sauna, and steam room in the ladies locker room. There's also a ladies quiet room and a co-ed lounge. The services are also good too. However, many of the specialty massages (shiatsu etc...) aren't available after 4pm during the week. Appointments for facials and pure relaxation massages are the easy to get during the evening weekday hours. These massage services are good - like at all places, it really depends on your masseuse.

I had heard a lot about Burke Williams and decided to check it out with some friends at the Santa Monica location. The place itself is larger than any other day spa I've been to. I probably would've gotten lost on the way back from the massage therapy rooms if my masseuse didn't point the way out for me! First, I think their amenities are great - the steam room, the sauna, and the big jacuzzi. Nice changing room area. I was there on a busy day though, and it felt a little crowded at times. The relaxation/waiting room is great. However, they can work on their small outdoor patio area. I went out there to sit a while and it kinda ruined the whole ambience of the place. The wall of the outdoor patio borders a concrete parking garage, and then there were flies in the outdoor patio. Anyways, I won't sit out there again.
I had a milk bath which was really nice and private. Then I had an hour massage....but I thought the massage was only so-so. I think it really depends on who you get. When I checked o

I got a gift certificate as a birthday present and went there with 2 girl friends. It was awesome! We arrived early to take advantage of the spa which includes a huge jacuzzi, a sauna, and 2 steam rooms. When you arrive everyone is super nice and you actually get a tour. I have been to other spas where you are pretty much left to yourself to discover all the things they have. The massage was great and well worth it. The amenitites are all so beautiful - I wish my bathroom had that design.

This is a spa with excellence in mind. From the moment you walk, your care and comfort become the first most concern in the minds of all who serve you. If you want to feel like a pampered star, come here. A long time ago, I had ventured into the Santa Monica location was was smitten. It had been while since then, and decided to see what the Torrance operation had to offer. Plenty.

From the luxurious herbal bath, with jets (totally private bath), complete with fruit and lemon water to munch on, cucumber eye patches, and attentive staff---I was loving it. Then I had a 50 minute massage that absolutely transported me to another world. It was very relaxing and the music was calming, as was the muted lighting. The appointments in the bathrooms and locker area were wonderful and clean--very clean, complete with all kinds of goodies you'd expect (from Q-tips to blow dryers and brushes). The scented candles, lighting, and plants made for a relaxing environment as well.

PROS: The massages and the baths were the best. The best deal overall were the massages at $80 for 50 minutes of pampering. As soon as you arrive, you are given your own robe and slippers to let the pampering begin!
CONS: Afterwards, I opted for a facial. That was a drag, as my face felt completely scratched up, but you live and learn.

Got my first spa massage here-- from a male perspective, it was a great experience. They show you to the men's lounge where you can get into a hottub, take a shower, drink lemonade or lemon water, or sit in the steam room or the sauna. They also have tons of products there if you want to shave, do your hair, etc. You can then goto the co-ed lounge where you sit in a cozy room and eat cookies and read magazines till they call you for your massage. The massage was great, but I wished I had told the lady to concentrate on my neck area-- I think they all have a set routine they go through. It was great anyways!

Any Burke Williams is great. I have spent most of my time at the Pasadena location but this one is relaxing and wonderful as well. Any of the massage treatments are wonderful - one of the best was the Thai treatment. Go early and spend a lot of time in the hot tub, sauna or wet rooms. Or pick up a magazine and cup of water and spend some quiet time in the 'quiet' room.
