Las Vegas draws more than 42 million people a year by offering no-holds-barred indulgence. Whether craving a booze-filled night at the best Las Vegas bars and lounges, all-you-can-eat fun at the best buffets in Las Vegas or an evening dancing at the best Las Vegas clubs and music venues, the city has got you covered. But if your favorite not-so-guilty pleasure is a forceful massage followed by a relaxing manicure or facial, the city is prepared to keep you in hot tubs and towels at the best spas in Las Vegas. Kick back in a salt cave or chill out after a soothing scrub at these top health centers. After all, Vegas does pampering the way it does everything else: over the top.
Best spas in Las Vegas
Start with the mud—Moroccan rhassoul clay you’ll slather all over your face and body. Step into a heated room where the paste dries, pulling impurities from the skin, then an aromatic steam rises, letting your body absorb the mud’s minerals. Finally, a light drizzle washes it all away. This spa inspired by the decadence of 1930s Shanghai is packed with amenities, from relaxation lounges to a starlit hammam and even an “ice fountain.” The hardest part is tearing yourself away. Well, that and not caressing your velvety soft skin for the rest of the day.
Spas are a place to disconnect and decompress, and you should—right after you Instagram the golden, lantern-lit corridor on the way to the treatment rooms. Once that’s done, give in to a top-notch pampering sesh via classic massages, Chakra balancing, a marine gold wrap or a Vitamin C or Men’s Age-Defying Facial. You can even take the soothing out of the spa, with an in-room or poolside massage.
Like Vegas’ best buffets, this spa offers something for everyone, from fitness junkies (kettlebells and TRX) to facial aficionados (gemstone and oxygen treatments) to anyone looking to slay during a night on the Strip. And gents who enjoy kicking back for some care can book a barber shave or sport mani-pedi.
Forget jostling for a spot in the jacuzzi or trying to meditate surrounded by strangers. At this lovely corner of calm on the south end of the Strip, it’s all about finding your Zen in a desert-inspired space with expert technicians as your guides. If you’ve been thinking about trying a cupping treatment a la Michael Phelps or you’re curious about a hot wax massage, place your trust in the Four Seasons’ professionals and let them work their magic.
If there’s a philosophy that best describes Steve Wynn’s namesake Vegas resort, it’s attention to detail. Dedication to even the smallest elements infuses every corner of the elegant hotel, from the wallpaper to the cocktail lists to the spa, where the menu focuses on a refined set of services and treatments all performed exceptionally well.
Sometimes even a spa needs a makeover. Red Rock’s got a top-to-bottom renovation in 2016, and the redesigned space is a holistic wonderland. Want red carpet-ready skin? Book a celeb-approved Lancer-method facial. Trying to jump-start your fitness journey? Step into the Bod Pod for a full assessment. Ready to defy gravity? Sign up for a vertical yoga class. Even when your feet are back on the ground, after a day inside this suburban retreat you’ll feel like you’re flying.
The centerpiece of Cosmo’s stylish spa-scape is its hammam or Turkish bath, where you (and a friend or two) can bounce between the heated motherstone, whirlpools, steam rooms and loungers. Upgrade your hammam session with the Moroccan Journey, a two-hour tour of indulgence that includes an exfoliating scrub, rhassoul mud and a full-body massage, or the Red Flower Experience, where you’ll be doused in fragrant oils, scrubbed down and rinsed off with basins of water meant to evoke ocean waves.
With 450 spas in more than 50 countries, the folks behind ESPA know a thing or two about creating holistic experiences that leave you feeling refreshed inside and out. And that’s exactly what Vdara’s serene spa delivers, with a full range of massages, body treatments and facials all using ESPA’s own products. Opt for On the Rocks and you’ll enjoy a body brushing, exfoliation, hot stone massage and scalp rub. And be sure to show up early to take full advantage of the facilities, including the soothing meditation room.
Occupying 134,000-square-feet inside the Venetian, the Canyon Ranch SpaClub is like a department store of relaxation and rejuvenation. Expect soothing environments like the salt grotto and rain room, body scrubs and massage treatments, boot camp and spin classes, a 40-foot climbing wall and even a restaurant serving feel-good, body-friendly food. Consider it your one-stop-shop for undoing yesterday’s glorious night out.
Sure, you could book a Deep-Tissue Surrender (where a pro kneads your muscles into submission) or a Fiji Ritual (complete with coconut body scrub, coconut oil scalp treatment and coconut body butter), but the best way to do Caesars’ expansive spa is by grabbing a few friends and hopping from the tea lounge to the Roman baths to the laconium sauna to the Arctic Ice Room (where the forecast includes regular flurries).
