Kick Back, Relax, and Get Your Groove Back: The Soothing Side of Las Vegas

Nothing screams luxurious louder than a day spent at a Las Vegas spa.  Like with everything else, Las Vegas takes something that is already pretty darn perfect and manages to make it better.  Take a break from the bright lights and rolling dice and for one day treat yourself to an experience that will make you feel like the Queen (or King) of the Nile.

Canyon Ranch SpaClub:  A day spent at this award winning spa will take all your worries away. Part of The Venetian Hotel and Casino, Canyon Ranch is the largest in Vegas and offers the most tantalizing services.  Their treatment rooms infuse the use of water and temperature to relax your mind, body and spirit.  Traditional massage and skin treatments are enhanced with the use of aromatherapy and specialized body scrubs that leave you feeling rejuvenated.  The only stress with this spa is choosing from their enormous list of options.

Spa Bellagio:  Allow yourself to be pampered in this spa which is as beautiful as the hotel that holds it.  One of the very first spas in Las Vegas, Spa Bellagio offers a wide variety of services and packages, including a few geared towards a couple experience.  What better way to share a day with your better half than side by side on massage tables.  Afterwards you can head to the pool and learn the art of floating one another.  This sensual experience is a sure way to re-ignite some sparks and bring a special brand of romance to your vacation.

The Spa at Encore:  Pure decadence is what earned this spa its Forbes five-star award.  The moment you step through the doors your mind is whisked away to a distant land where you deserve to be treated like royalty.  Allow yourself to be taken on an encore spa journey or indulge in a massage perfectly tailored for your needs.  There is even one available to soothe an expectant mother.  This truly is a palatial paradise where you expect to see Cleopatra being fed grapes at every turn through the opulent hallways.

Bathhouse at Delano (Formally THEhotel):  Bathhouse has more of a modern feel than other spas on the strip.  Part of Mandalay Bay’s second tower, Bathhouse makes the spa experience seem trendy.  Even the services offered give the experience a modern feel, like the Brown Sugar Java Jolt.  That’s a full body wash that incorporates coconut oil, coffee beans and brown sugar to open up your pores and restore moisture to the skin.  Still offering all of the same services as the more traditional spas, The Bathhouse does a great job of infusing the pampered experience with a hip flair.

Of course the best spas come with a price.  Depending on the range of services you want, expect to pay upwards of $500 for a full day of treatments. You can cut that down by only indulging in what matters most to you, like an 80 minute massage for under $200. Considering the payout of restored mind and body, this is the one Las Vegas sure thing you shouldn’t shy away from.
