Top 6 Vegas Strip Hotels for Relaxation and Recovery

The Las Vegas Strip is a 24-hour playground for grown-ups. But sometimes the barrage on the senses can leave visitors seeking a quiet refuge from the lights, sounds, and action. Luckily, there are a collection of the world’s finest spas mere steps from Las Vegas Boulevard. Here are our top six picks for peace and pampering on the Strip:

1. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas

Designed with peace and “flow” in mind, take a step through the doors of Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, breathe deeply, and leave the stress behind. This 5-star resort features a spacious luxury spa to calm the body and soul. Ancient techniques in relaxation and beauty meet modern design and fitness classes — you’ll soon forget about the fervor just outside.

2. Qua Baths & Spa, Caesars Palace Las Vegas

Lose yourself in the sprawling sanctuary that is the Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. Modeled after the baths of ancient Rome, this award-winning spa is nestled in the heart of classic Vegas. Men and women will find a variety of soothing rituals and activities, including a dry sauna known as a laconium, a Swarovski crystal body art room, and an “Arctic Ice Room.”

3. The Spa at Encore

Health gets hip at The Spa at Encore, located inside the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. Owner Steve Wynn has given every inch of this spa his personal touch, from the grand corridor to the garden villas. Take a moment to appreciate the sophisticated surroundings while you ease into your treatments with warm and cool plunge pools, heated lounge chairs, and a Pilates experience that’s second-to-none.

4. Spa Mandalay

Hipmunk deals at Mandalay Bay Hotel Las Vegas provide an expansive, tropical escape from the desert heat. Contained inside it is the oasis that is Spa Mandalay. Embrace the royal treatment by relaxing amid flowing waters and calming stone surfaces, mere steps from the breathtaking Mandalay Beach.

5. ESPA at Vdara

Rise above the frenzy as you ascend the elevators at Vdara Las Vegas to the modern environment of ESPA at Vdara, with its rich wood and luxury feel. Multiple floors provide therapeutic skin and body treatments, a European heat experience, and a world-class beauty salon. Once your body and soul are purified, your passage remains clear throughout the smoke-free resort.

6. Spa & Salon Bellagio

Images of the majestic, flowing fountains that punctuate Bellagio Las Vegas carry through to the zen-inspired Spa & Salon Bellagio. Water walls, hand-blown glass, and jade accents hint at the ancient services, including the rare and exotic Ashiatsu deep compression massage.
