With all the stress related to everything that’s happening in the city it’s only right that the city offers its patrons a place to relax as well.

Most of the resorts that you can find on the Strip also have a mini getaway housed somewhere within their walls. This retreat comes in the form of a luxurious spa where you can go to get pampered and recharge after a long day or just to start a hectic week.

5 –Vdara

Vdara has always had a spa located inside its walls, only recently the name was changed due to the takeover by ESPA. ESPA is a leading company in spa ingredients and with the takeover they brought with them their incredible products to be used in the spa exclusively.

When you first arrive at ESPA you’ll meet with one of the trained professionals who interview you to help you get the best experience for you based on what your body and mind needs. ESPA has many different options for you to pick from and it’s going to be one of the most relaxing days of your life when you spend it here.

You can choose from the hot plunge pools, the steam rooms, and co-ed meditation room. All of these services are available with the purchase of a day pay. At ESPA you can purchase a single day or a three-day pass depending on how long you want to have access. Each pass includes a spa robe and slippers for you to wear while in the spa.

If you’re feeling all bound up let one of the highly-trained massage therapist help you relax and get rid of all that tension. The tension is bad for your health so going to the spa is a sacrifice that I think we should all be willing to take every once in a while.

ESPA is an award winning 18,000 square foot spa that spans a total of two floors at the Vdara hotel and casino. It is one of the highest rated spas on the strip so you can guarantee it’s going to be pretty expensive. If you’re on vacation and just feel the need to splurge I recommend taking a trip to ESPA.

6 – The Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Casino

Take a trip around the world and back in time when you enter the Mandarin Oriental Spa. This spa’s décor is reminiscent of 1930s Shanghi and is spread over two floors of the hotel to encompass 17 treatment rooms and seven private rooms for couples to enjoy together.

Other great features that can be found here are the water experiences. The water experiences include a vitality pool, sauna for me, ice fountain, and a laconicum. The loconicum is a room much like a sauna but instead of the wet steam this room recreates the Roman saunas which were dry heat treatment rooms. Another unique feature of this spa is the rhassoul clay treatment for the ladies.

Along with all these great amenities you can also choose a massage treatment that lasts between one and two hours depending on what package you choose. The massages are used to completely relax the mind body and soul and use holistic oils, along with hot stones, and precision energy point concentration to give you the best and most relaxing treatment you’ve ever had.

7 – Treasure Island

At Treasure Island resort and casino, you’ll find Oleksandra Spa & Salon which is named after its creator Oleksandra Nikolayenko-Ruffin. Oleksandra has brought an incredible mix of Russian themed relaxation methods together with all the best technology to offer you the most relaxing experience available.

The spa includes a fitness center, salon, steam room, sauna, hot and cold whirlpools and showers for you to enjoy both before and after your treatments. If you’ve scheduled a treatment they ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled time. This gives you time to check out the spa and check-in receive your locker and change into your robe and slippers provided.

When trying to decide which treatment to purchase you might find it rather difficult. You can choose from a traditional full body Swedish massage, a specialized traveler’s massage to help relieve the stress of jet lag, hot stone massage, or a Four hands massage that provides double relaxation.

If you decide you would rather just receive a skin or facial treatment Oleksandra has you covered as well. She has everything from your regular facial all the way up to a stem cell treatment to revive your skin and bring back that youthful glow.

Oleksandra didn’t want to leave out the little girls who want to have a chance to visit the spa so she included a Princess Package. With this package, your little girl and up to five friends can get a chance to get the princess treatment and spend a day getting pampered just like you at the spa.
