The Spa at ENCORE
Though it’s admittedly a little over-the-top (the gold color scheme means that even the tiniest details are gilded), spa at the Encore is generally held to be one of the best in town. The theme feels partly Indian and partly Moroccan, starting with the dramatic entrance: guests walk down a river-rock path lined with gold lanterns, to be greeted at the end by an 8-foot, hand-carved sculpture of Buddha. Inside, there are waterfall showers, a marble Jacuzzi room, and a series of hot and cold plunge pools. As for the treatments, we recommend the Nalu Body Ritual, which includes Polynesian massage, full body exfoliation, and a coconut oil scalp treatment. For expecting mothers, they offer a pregnancy-specific massage that’s pretty unmatched.
