Find your ultimate indulgence: The best spas in Las Vegas

Luxuriate in style at some of the best spas in Las Vegas. | By Matt Villano | January 11, 2023

Las Vegas is a town of indulgence, and there’s no better way to nurture your body and calm your mind than at a spa. Most Las Vegas resorts have spas on-site, and many have amenities guests can’t find anywhere else. There are also several noteworthy spas outside of the big casino hotels. Here’s a look at some of the best spas in town, with a spotlight on the features and amenities that make each destination stand out.

  • Multi-sensory experience: Slip into a European-style wellness theater with music, lights and aromatherapy

  • Step out: Try specialized foot treatments featuring acupuncture, wraps and masks to be pampered from your toes up

  • Inclusion rules: Everyone can find relaxation in Vegas with customized treatments to target every area

Face time

Spas come in different shapes and sizes — and feature different specialties. No place in Las Vegas exemplifies this better than the Sisley-Paris boutique at The Shops at Crystals on the Las Vegas Strip.

The shop, the French cosmetic company’s only boutique in Las Vegas, specializes in products derived from plants and herbs. The store has a secret spa cabin tucked in the back with nothing but facials on the menu. Six 60-minute treatments for women are considered phyto-aromatic, leaving the skin fresh and touchably soft.

Book a Las Vegas Signature Facial and leave town feeling like a million bucks. Customized for optimum restoration, you’ll also receive a face and scalp massage to complete the relaxation process. Designed to leave your skin looking radiant, all treatments are expertly administered by aestheticians in a sleek, modern salon. The spa even has the capacity to handle small parties, making it a perfect destination for bachelorette parties or girls’ trips.

The best of both worlds

Awana Spa in Resorts World Las Vegas is an idyllic refuge with personalized replenishing treatments, several of which are curated by therapists dubbed sauna meisters.

Most treatments fall under two styles: European and Asian, meaning massages can incorporate elements of deep-tissue work, salt-crystal stones, skin rolling and percussive movements. The Eastern Vibrations treatment combines massage with sound therapy, placing Himalayan singing bowls around each guest to allow the vibrations from the bowls to help encourage relaxation.

For a multi-sensory ritual that is quintessentially Vegas, head to Awana Spa’s Aufguss (meaning infusion in German), a communal bathing area and wellness theater where sauna meisters blend concentrated heat and aromatherapy with choreographed music, lighting and towels that appear to dance to the rhythm.

Looking for even more rest and rejuvenation? The spa also offers a three-hour Fountain of Youth experience, where guests can move between six different vitality pools, a Laconium treatment room with a giant crystal in the center, tepidarium chairs, a vapor-filled steam room, cool mist showers and a rain walk.

Here comes the groom... ing lounge

Everyone deserves to be pampered. Which is why no ultimate spa guide would be complete without a look at some of the grooming lounges and barber shops that populate the city. And FINO, a men’s grooming lounge just east of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, Curio Collection by Hilton is one of the best.

This swanky barbershop offers a host of grooming services, from haircuts to flat-razor shaves, beard trims and more. Most of the stylists are master barbers, which means they have been recognized by the American Barber Association for excellence within their craft. Every service starts with a beverage and ends with a hot towel treatment. The vibe is a perfect mashup between sports bar and relaxation lounge. Sports content streams continuously on big-screen televisions, while electronic dance music thumps from the speakers. In between, barbers work their magic with a combination of clippers, scissors, razors and amenities that include fresh lather from old-school Latherizer machines.

The whole package

For a host of wellness therapies that combine massage and skin treatment for a comprehensive relaxation experience, visit Waldorf Astoria Spa, which is located on the eighth floor of Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. A 130-minute Karmic Happiness Ritual begins with body exfoliation and customized aromatherapy, continues with a journey through a special steam shower and concludes with a massage that focuses on points of the body that stimulate feelings of joy and stability.

In addition to expanded wellness specials, there is a lengthy list of traditional massage options too, including deep tissue, Swedish, Thai and warm stone massage, to name a few. The spa also has massage therapists that offer lighter-touch choices for pregnant women. Add on a foot treatment (a specialty since the spa’s opening) to focus on pressure points and you’ll leave with your mind and body feeling completely at peace.

Kicking it old school

For an over-the-top spa experience coupled with an exquisite aesthetic nod to the past, head to Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, Curio Collection by Hilton. The hotel’s spa entrance has a gothic look, and inside, the men’s and women’s pools have arched ceilings that call to mind a Roman bathhouse of old.

The signature treatment — A Smashingly Good Spa Experience — is 80 minutes long and includes a body scrub, hot-stone full-body massage and a honey treatment for your hands and feet. The experience concludes with a scalp rub for rejuvenation from head to toe.

Meanwhile the Herbal Remedy Organic Compress Massage continues to look back to the past, showcasing tried-and-tested remedies throughout history. The aromatic experience uses a warm herbal compress filled with crushed flowers and herbs on the body to ease tension and release pain — a technique often seen in ancient ayurvedic practices.

No matter where (or how) you choose to pamper yourself, one note should always be kept in mind: Book ahead! Spa appointments in Las Vegas are limited, so it’s always wise to make an appointment in advance. That way, the only thing you’ll need to worry about is which treatment suits you best.
