When it comes to pampering, Vegas has no peer. The spas are monuments to beauty and relaxation. Massage, aromatherapy, scrubs, facials –– your skin will glow, your body will let go, your mind will be at ease. Sit in the cedarwood saunas and eucalyptus steam rooms and feel the “real” world melt away.
Caesar’s Palace has Qua, with its Roman-inspired baths to make your skin sing –– including a cold plunge. Many have signature treatments, such as Spa Bellagio’s Watsu massage, combining stretches of Zen Shiatsu in 94-degree water, or the Wynn’s Good Luck Ritual, based on the five elements of Feng Shui.
Canyon Ranch at the Venetian is the Grand Daddy: Modeled after the famous health and wellness resort in Tuscon, Ariz., it checks in at 134,000 square feet and offers more than 100 services.
Downtown and Lake side, you’ll find more intimate facilities, such as the Golden Nugget’s spa with its Caviar Mani and Pedi, the Morrocan-themed Spa Moulay at the Loews Lake Las Vegas, or the peaceful, stripped-down spa at Green Valley Ranch.
Want to go green? The spa at the new Vdara in the massive CityCenter complex is cozy, devoid of flash and the first to make the Green Spa Network.
Most spas offer poolside massages and couples packages, and state-of-the-art fitness rooms to burn all those sumptuous Vegas meals.
