Princeton Scoop is dedicated to providing our PScoop readers with the scoop on the coolest spots in Princeton, so we have to tell you that Koi Spa and CanDo Fitness are no exception.


Koi Spa has a beautiful reception area, product shelves and a display of my favorite sandals in the world. I couldn.t get over the fact they sell OKA b..s there. I.ve only ever seen them in Aruba and the airport in St. Paul, MN. The Spa.s styling area includes a section for hair and a few manicure/pedicure stations. They even have a special Koi Spa Salon Suite, where private spa and salon celebrations are available for groups. This area is a smaller version of the styling area where groups can gather for a bachelorette party, girls night, bridal shower, teen party, corporate rewards, mommies-to-be bash or where a brides can prepare for her wedding. Koi Spa is able to arrange food and drinks there as well. The salon offers a private room for styling where they often do wig fittings for women who are cancer survivors, treat bashful men and more. Recently a Muslim woman came in to have her hair styled in this private area. What a great idea! Koi Spa even has a Mystic Tan booth and of course they offer plenty of Spa Salon packages for parties or individuals.

It doesn.t stop there; in fact it doesn.t even come close. Another area of the spa houses the massage and facial rooms. There were two rooms that stood out to me. The Bamboo Room is a room for couples to go and have side-by-side massages and also has a two-person Jacuzzi tub. Another room has a capsule tub, which can be used for various scrubs, hydrotherapy or as a Vichy shower. Picture a tanning bed with a tub in it, but the top closes. Pretty nifty, no? There is a special serene and tranquil waiting area for those clients using the spa. It is a dimly lit lounge with a large table in the middle offering a variety of teas, other beverages and even fortune cookies. Spa meals may be added to any service. You can sit there, relax and gaze at the wall, which holds a very large Koi fish tank. You also see the tank when you are walking around the spa area because it is built into the wall.

Get a massage with Susan Lee, a facial with Christine, or get your hair styled by Kelly, Marissa, or any of their other fabulous staff members. All spa and salon clients are encouraged to unwind in their Turkish steam room or Cedar sauna. For those clients with services exceeding $100, they are also invited to make use of the Can Do Fitness Club.
