Step away from the champagne cocktails, roulette tables and extravagant all-you-can-eat buffets to take some time out at one of the many spectacular spa hotels in Las Vegas.
Sin City isn’t just about gambling, fine dining and all-night parties. The spa hotels in Las Vegas are also amongst the best in the world, perfect for a girls’ trip, a romantic getaway or even some much-needed solo time out. Ditch the daily grind and escape to one of these huge wellness spaces devoted to innovative treatments, unrivalled pampering and cutting-edge fitness technology.
This upscale non-gaming hotel is already a haven of peace and quiet within the Mandalay Bay Resort, so its spa feels like a world away from the relentless frenzy of the Strip just outside. Inspired by the desert beyond the city, the spa offers a high-tech gym, boutique and nail bar, but is best known for the ground-breaking treatments on offer. These include cupping therapy, and a candle massage in which wax is gently poured over the entire body
A serene spa tucked within this refined, all-suite hotel, the Bathhouse Spa feels deliciously intimate, despite its large size, thanks to its cosseting black marble, natural stone and dark slate decor. A day pass will give you access to its redwood sauna, heated whirlpools, eucalyptus steam room, cold plunge pool and gym. But with just 12 treatment rooms, you should book ahead to avoid missing out on divine treatments, including a massage using raw desert bee pollen from the Mohave region.
The spa at the Encore is every bit as exquisite as its prestigious location adjoining the Wynn demands. The spa itself displays Asian design influences, with huge Buddhas, ornate gold lanterns and serene garden villas where treatments take place. An adventurous treatment menu includes an ancient Moroccan rhassoul clay treatment, a Polynesian-inspired wellness ritual and even a couple’s massage using Chinese traditions to promote good luck.
If you don’t need dedicated spa time after a few days at Palms Place, you’re not trying hard enough. Part of the party-centric Palms resort with concert venues, nightclubs and swish restaurants, Palms Place is a sleek all-suite retreat to escape to between nights out. The glossy Drift Spa takes relaxing seriously, with Vegas’s first hammam, indoor hot and cold soaking pools, gardens and a range of indulgent couple’s treatments.
With the Strip a distant 25-minute drive away, committed spa-goers can focus on wellness without any distractions at this sprawling resort hotel in the city’s suburbs. Tucked beyond the hotel’s vineyard, the complex has its own adults-only lap pool with Vegas views, a private VIP salon room, nutrition coaching and personal training. Don’t miss the personalised BABOR skin treatments, which are tailored to your needs following an in-depth skin analysis.
Escape the city’s whirlwind of activity at this luxurious hotel spa in Summerlin, close to the Red Rock Canyon yet in easy reach of the Strip. Spa Aquae offers an outdoor hydrotherapy circuit pool, a fitness center with daily yoga and boot camp classes and an extensive treatment menu. There’s no need to return to reality when hunger strikes, either: order low-calorie dishes, sandwiches, smoothies and even cocktails straight from the spa without even changing from your robe.
With no clattering casino in the lobby, the Waldorf Astoria is already one of the Strip’s most relaxing hotels. The eighth-floor pool deck and award-winning spa ups the ante with its laconium (dry-heat room), heavenly vitality pool and intimate relaxation rooms overlooking the neon-lit city below. If even that sounds like hard work, treatments can be arranged in the privacy of your room, where spa-like bathrooms feature Salvatore Ferragamo products and tubs of fragrant bath salts for leisurely soaking.
