While taking in one of Las Vegas’ many shows or partying at the city’s best nightclubs is always a memorable time, it might not always be the most relaxing. So if you need a day to recover from TAO and LAVO at the Venetian and Palazzo or from watching the sensory-overload aquatic adventure “O” by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio here are the top spas in Las Vegas:
Canyon Ranch SpaClub – One of the largest day spas in the world, Canyon Ranch SpaClub at the Venetian and the Palazzo is an award-winning retreat where guests are immersed in an oasis of serenity. Feel rejuvenated with one of Canyon Ranch’s numerous massages and facials; sweat out toxins at a pilates, yoga, cycle or any of the spa’s many other fitness classes; or even relax your muscles with Aquavana, a European-inspired aquathermal oasis that offers both hot and cold baths to stimulate your senses. And beyond their treatments, Canyon Ranch is known for their warm, personal attention to ensure you get the ultimate spa experience.
MGM Grand Spa and Health Club – Awarded the 2011 SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards, MGM Grand Spa and Health Club not only relaxes your mind and body, they do it with a kind of luxury you’ve come to expect from MGM Grand. In addition to the usual spa treatments like massages, facials, fitness centers, manis and pedis, MGM Grand Spa and Health Club offers wellness treatments you can’t find in just any Las Vegas spa. Ayurvedic Therapies, which is a form of wellness that promotes harmony and balance are just one of the ways MGM Grand Spa and Health Club stands out from the crowd. Exfoliating Vichy Showers are another reason why this unique spa was awarded the 2011 SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards.
Qua Baths and Spa at Caesars Palace – One of the most stylish spas in Las Vegas and perhaps among the world’s most extravagant retreats, Qua Baths & Spa adheres to a live-in-the-moment philosophy. In fact Qua is Latin for “here.” And it is “here” that guests can indulge in an array of treatments including the unique Roman baths, which highlight the healing power of water. Qua Baths and Spa also offers a Crystal Room, where spa-goers can enjoy customized body decoration with real crystals. There is even an Arctic Ice Room, where after relaxing in heated treatments guests can cool down with ice chips that exfoliate all while sitting in a chilly 55-degree room.
Spa Mandalay – Thirty thousand square feet of space has never been as relaxing and rejuvenating as it is at Spa Mandalay at Mandalay Bay. This world-class spa offers the best techniques, products and professionals to ensure you get the luxury treatment you deserve. Begin your Mandalay Spa day with a quick workout at the 30,000-square-foot fitness center before relaxing with one of Spa Mandalay’s deep hot stone massages or milk and honey sugar polish body treatment. End your relaxing day with some hand and feet pampering with one of the spa’s many manicure and pedicure options. It’s the perfect way to begin your night on the Strip!
