Vegas Health & Beauty
The Spa at ENCORE
3131 Las Vegas Blvd. S., The Strip
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.
The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental
3752 Las Vegas Boulevard S., The Strip
Mandarin Oriental is known for their luxurious spas, but the experience at their Las Vegas location is exceptional, even for them. The two-floor space offers treatments that are exclusive to Las Vegas, like the Lucky Eights, a soothing reflexology series. Even if you don’t have time for a formal appointment, relax by the pool and in their quiet lounges, both of which offer phenomenal views of the entire strip.
