If there were ever a destination that requires a place where you can detoxify, it’s Sin City. Take a tranquil timeout from the flashing slot machines, thumping music and rowdy crowds of the Strip and spend a couple of hours getting a massage or pampering treatment at one of the best spas in Las Vegas, which you can book with Culture Trip.

The Spa at ARIA

Elemental balance informs the facilities at the Spa at ARIA. Take a dip in the infinity therapy pool, try “rock bathing” on Ganbanyoku beds – slabs of heated black silica – then take a snooze while breathing in Himalayan salt-infused air in the halotherapy room. The Gemstone Journey, a salt-stone massage followed by a gemstone facial that includes a collagen and diamond-infused face mask, is the most luxurious option at ARIA, and perhaps in all of Vegas. While it’s a relaxing refuge inside, the ARIA hotel, where this spa is located, has its own casino and is right in the thick of the Vegas action – it counts Park MGM and the Bellagio as its neighbors.

Canyon Ranch Spa

The original Canyon Ranch opened in Tucson, Arizona, in 1979 and quickly became the go-to wellness resort for people who were serious about improving their health. Now, you can get a taste of the company’s intensive health programs at the Venetian in Vegas with a day pass to the Canyon Ranch Spa and fitness center. Ascend the 40ft (12m) indoor climbing wall, stretch out with yoga, and then try the Aquavana spa experience, which includes a Finnish sauna, hydro spa, crystal steam room, igloo, herbal laconium (dry sauna) and “experiential rains,” where you can choose from Caribbean Storm, Tropical Rain or Cool Fog.

To enter the Sahra Spa and Hammam at the Cosmopolitan, you’ll need to travel through a walkway reminiscent of a slot canyon – the spa was designed to evoke the desert, with peach-hued stone walls and metallic ceilings that call to mind starlit evenings. The highlight is the private Moroccan hammam room, a “ritual space” where you’ll lie down on a huge, warmed circular stone table before your masseuse arrives to kneel over you, cover you with water and then scrub you down. It’s a sensual practice of purification that concludes with a cooling bath – or an optional full-body massage. Other facilities include two whirlpools and steam rooms.

Start in the outdoor hydrotherapy circuit, then move to the gender-segregated ritual rooms, which include steams, saunas, plunge pools, waterfall showers and a relaxing float pool.

Secure a $30 (£22) day pass to the Mandalay Spa and enjoy the redwood sauna, whirlpools, relaxation lounge, cold plunge pool and Eucalyptus Steam Room. Treatments are the tried-and-true spa favorites, like exfoliating sugar scrubs, hydration-enhancing facials and aromatherapy massages. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness center if you feel inclined to work off some of that Vegas indulgence.

Unsurprisingly, the Voie Spa by Mandara, located in a hotel sporting a replica Eiffel Tower at the entrance, is somewhat French in its approach. While the spa treatments are fairly standard – think beautifying facials and hot stone massages – they all incorporate small elements inspired by the French countryside. The Loire Red Wine Antioxidant Mask contains antioxidant resveratrol to reduce signs of aging; the 80-minute Fleur de Sel Massage is inspired by the pink salt beaches in Occitanie.

ESPA at Vdara

ESPA at Vdara prides itself on offering five-star service, which means a customized spa experience and wellness tips you can take with you and apply every day. Once you’ve sampled the European-style spa facilities, book one of its signature treatments. On the Rocks includes dry body brushing, a massage with volcanic stones and a scalp massage, while Desert Rose, a salt scrub and massage treatment, is followed by a head-to-toe slathering of skin-softening body butter.

The Spa at Encore

Being amid the opulent, gilded decor of the Spa at Encore feels like a form of pampering in and of itself, but it’s the unusual treatments that really set the venue apart. Consider the Bodhi Massage and Visualization, which blends energy work, massage, aromatherapy and chromotherapy to balance the chakras (energy centers of the body); or try the Good Luck Ritual, a head-to-toe treatment that’s influenced by the five elements of Chinese medicine and is said to promote happiness, luck and prosperity.

Imperial Spa Las Vegas

If you want a spa day without the extravagant expense, head to Imperial, a Korean spa with a general admission price of just $25 (£18). The Imperial promises to make you feel like royalty in its “Roman-style paradise,” a 32,000sqft (3,000sqm) space featuring circular frescoes on its ceilings. Explore therapeutic rooms including a Himalayan salt cave, a red-clay infrared sauna and a jade sauna. You’ll leave refreshed, detoxed and ready to hit the Strip for more shenanigans. The Imperial is located a 20-minute walk (or quick taxi ride) from Las Vegas Boulevard, near the Las Vegas Country Club.

Although Roman baths are the theme of Qua Baths & Spa (this being Caesars Palace, after all), the place borrows and celebrates rituals and treatments from multiple cultures including Hawaiian, Thai, Native American and Indian. For a truly unique experience, head straight to the Arctic Ice Room – the only one of its kind in the world, according to Caesars – where you’ll recline on a heated bench in the chilly, 55F (13C) air as snowflakes – yes, snowflakes! – fall from the domed ceiling.
