You can gamble away your life’s savings, see Broadway-caliber shows, dine with James Beard Award winning chefs, shop in designer boutiques and have the time of your life in Las Vegas. And you can relax. Spas in Las Vegas are one of the biggest draws for tourists looking to get away from it all. And does Las Vegas deliver. Here’s a look at the top five spas that will not only deliver the ultimate in treatments, but do it in style.
Mandarin Oriental, 1.888.881.9530
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental
Take yourself back to Shanghai in the 1930s and you start to get the feel for the Spa at Mandarin Oriental. The look and feel captures the glamour of the era, while the treatments themselves are based on the medicinal benefits of Asia. We love the Chinese Foot Spa, where you can delve into a steeping hot foot bath infused with herbal blends. Your feet will never feel the same. The 27,000-square-foot spa features a hammam, laconium, experience showers and more.
Encore Las Vegas, 702.770.4772
The Spa at Encore
So hard to chose between the Spa at Encore and the Spa at Wynn. Both offer sumptuous treatments in a decadent setting. Try the Oxygen Rejuvenation Facial to restore and hydrate your skin in the dry desert climate or the Encore Escape Ritual with its combination of massage techniques finished with a warm wrap and scalp massage.
Palazzo and Venetian; 702.414.3600 or 1.877.220.2688
Canyon Ranch SpaClub sprawls on the second floor of the Venetian and Palazzo. It’s one of those places where you need to plan ahead to spend time in the Aquavana, a European-inspired aquathermal oasis. What’s your fancy? The Igloo has cool air and three ways to add a little snow to your day. In the HydroSpa, you can relax on a heated lounger. The Herbal Laconium warms you with herbal-infused steam. In the Experiential Rains experience, you can enjoy multisensory cooling showers.
Aria, 702.590.9600 or 877.312.2742
The Spa & Salon at Aria
The Spa & Salon at Aria at CityCenter combines salt, stone, earth, fire and water in its spa treatments. The spa sprawls over 80,000 square feet on two levels. Look for the Ganbanyoku Beds, only available at the Spa at Aria. These heated Japanese stone beds increase your circulation, accelerate your metabolism, soothe your muscles and eliminate toxins from the body. You can also mingle on the only co-ed outdoor balcony with a stunning view of the pools.
Caesars Palace, 866.782.0655
Qua Spa and Baths
Qua Baths and Spa seems like the oldie but goodie here. But don’t dismiss it. It’s one luxurious spot. Take some time to check out the Roman Baths, where you can dive in one of three pools in different temperatures, or heat up in the Laconium Room or cool down in the Arctic Ice Room with snow falling from above.
