Aria Spa and Salon

Aria - 3730 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, 89158

(702) 590-9600

$20 – 450

The Spa at Aria has a selection of whirlpools, steam baths, and saunas in both locker rooms, along with several co-ed spaces. There is a lounge filled with heated Japanese stone ganbanyoku beds, a shio salt room, and a therapy pool perched on a balcony above the main pool deck. Signature services tend to focus on hydration — be it their Fiji Body Wrap or their new Energy of the Glaciers Facial that uses products from Swiss skincare brand Valmont, perfect for parched desert skin.

Bellagio Spa and Salon

Bellagio - 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(702) 693-7111

$10 – 475

Just off the Bellagio’s iconic and ever-changing conservatory lies one of Las Vegas’s most well-programmed spas. In addition to offering the city’s only Watsu massage (a combination of zen shiatsu and stretching done while gently floating in a private heated pool), they also boast traditional ashiatsu, CBD therapies, and a couple’s suite with its own pool. What’s more, their salon features a private barbershop for traditional cuts and decadent shaving rituals.

Qua Baths & Spa

Caesars Palace - 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(866) 782-0655

$100  – 2,100

While this Caesars spa features a modern Roman bath complex complete with an Arctic ice room where it snows, it’s Qua’s unique services that truly stand out. The menu includes a Cleopatra Golden Goddess Facial featuring Natura Bisse products and a 24-karat gold Knesko mask as well as a Mojave Rain Massage. The latter starts with a sage smudging and application of nine essential oils that act as a natural Icy-Hot on the back before a total body massage commences.

Sahra Spa, Salon and Hammam

The Cosmopolitan - 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S, Level 4, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(702) 698-7000

$15 – 600

The Cosmopolitan’s menu of services is enticing, with HydraFacial, Intraceuticals, and NuFace experiences in addition to massages. But it’s the hammam that makes Sahra a destination worth visiting. For the ultimate escape, you and up to three friends will want to book their popular CBD Moroccan Journey a few months out. For this treatment, guests enter a private hammam and lay on a heated mother stone where they are cleansed with Moroccan mint tea silt bubbles before undergoing a dual exfoliation with a traditional kese mitt and then a CBD coffee and Himalayan salt scrub. Next, a boreal forest mud mask is applied before guests enter a steam bath. Pure honey is then lacquered on before another steam followed by a whirlpool soak, and the service concludes with a CBD and botanical-infused massage.

The Spa at Encore

Encore - 3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(702) 770-4772

$80 – 1,140

At Encore’s spa, the light and ethereal aesthetic sets the stage for some decadent relaxation. With multiple pools, natural light, and the most over-the-top path to treatment rooms, this spa is a luxe place to relax on The Strip. For the ultimate indulgence, book their Journey to Euphoria, where two therapists complete a four-handed massage and exfoliation treatment in over 105 minutes.

AWANA Spa and Wellness

Resorts World - 3000 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(702) 676-7021

$35 – 1,340

From its curvilinear walls to its Fountain of Youth, AWANA screams zen. Here you’ll find the country’s first aufguss performance sauna, where Sauna-Meisters use aromatherapy and dancing towels to move heat through choreographed movements. Himalayan salt stone massages and Reiki and Chakra healing sessions relax the body, while medical-grade HydraFacials, face yoga, dermaplaning, and gua sha treatments refresh the face.

Sisley-Paris Las Vegas Boutique

The Shops at Crystals Aria - 3720 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(702) 891-0545

$60 – 200

This renowned French cosmetic company has a cult-like following of fans who can’t get enough of the brand’s phytotherapy-rooted products. What those passing by the bustling boutique may not know is that there is a secret spa cabin tucked in the back that offers just one thing — a selection of the best facials this writer has ever had. Facials start at $200, and it’s strongly recommended to book your slot well in advance.

Canyon Ranch Spa and Fitness

The Venetian - 3355 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(702) 414-3600

$20 – 779

Clocking in at 134,000 square feet and with over 90 treatment rooms, this is one of the world’s largest spas. What’s more, they’ve packed the space with every conceivable amenity, from a 40-foot rock wall in their gym to crystal steam rooms, experiential showers, a laconicum, a salt grotto, and even a wave room where a domed canopy adds to the multi-sensory experience. Whilst their menu spans 40 pages, we are particularly obsessed with their new Thailates service. The treatment starts with a 25-minute reformer workout before progressing to a 50-minute Thai floor massage.

The Spa at Waldorf Astoria

Waldorf Astoria - 3752 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV, 89158

(702) 590-8886

$25 – 750

This non-gaming property is a luxe oasis amid the Vegas Strip. Perched on the seventh and eighth floors, guests are afforded sweeping Strip views from jacuzzies that emit Champagne-like bubbles through submerged loungers. The service menu is tech-forward and features HydraFacials, red-light therapy, and assisted stretching that makes use of Theraguns and RAD rollers. For those looking for deeper work, select a Thai fusion, Thai floor, or Himalayan sphere stone massage (offered with or without cupping).

The Spa at Wynn

Wynn - 3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

(702) 770-3900

$80 – 960

Thanks to this spa’s recent renovation, their relaxation room is one of the prettiest spaces in the entire city. But it’s their standout services, such as the Restorative Arnica Massage that incorporates the natural anti-inflammatory properties of arnica with deep tissue work and the Samadhi Enlightenment experience, that keep guests coming back. The Samadhi Enlightenment treatment incorporates singing bowls, Ayurvedic massage, and Chakra alignment for a deeply relaxing break from the casinos and lights of The Strip.
