There are lots of reasons to make Las Vegas the destination for your girlfriend getaway: high-end and discount shopping, great nightlife, world-class dining, entertainment, and, of course, the chance to meet "Lady Luck". You may not realize, however, that Las Vegas has become one of the top spa travel destinations as well.
Vast spas, health-clubs, and salons have sprung up at nearly every quality resort in the desert. With spas mirroring the splendors of Rome, Morocco, modern elegance, and even adventure, there is now a spa for every type of Vegas getaway.
Some of the best spa therapists have come to Las Vegas, attracted by the huge investments hotels have made into their facilities. They have brought with them a wide range of unique and relaxing specialty spa treatments.
At the very popular Canyon Ranch, you can try The Middle Eastern treatment of herbal steam and medicinal mud.
At the Four Seasons, you'll find Balinese body treatments with rose petals sprinkled along your short walk from massage to bath or get a massage with a choice of exotic oils made of island fruits, spices, or flowers.
Harmonize in a Zen-like setting in the MGM Grand Spa and recover with the Morning After Arabica, an exfoliating scrub of coffee, Dead Sea salts, and oils.
At The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas, a 30,000 square-foot spa offers a Spa 101 treatment; a four-treatment package with a spa-going tutorial for the "spa shy," and a truly unique "La Culla" multi-sensory steam cocoon treatment.
Las Vegas has become an oasis of luxury, with its haute cuisine, stretch limos, expensive clubs, championship golf, and cabanas by the pool. When you want to get far away from your usual day-to-day, though, a quality spa vacation in Las Vegas with your girlfriends is hard to beat. The best thing to have "stay in Vegas" is your stress.
