Easily the most ornate Strip spa, prepare to be welcomed by an abundance of gold. The gorgeous spa lobby is accented with it from the carpet to furniture, and then guests are escorted down a breathtaking private hall lit with dazzling gold lanterns and chandeliers. But don’t think the lavishness takes away from the calming effects – this is one spa that knows relaxation. Pre-treatment, prep your muscles in the whirlpools that come equipped with heated stone loungers. Then let the expert spa professionals take you away. 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 770-3900

Qua Baths & Spa
Now offering exclusive Japanese-inspired treatments for its new hotel-within-a-hotel, Nobu, Caesars Palace’s Qua has long been one of the most talked-about spas on the Strip. The clothing-optional Roman baths feel like they’re out of a movie, and of course there’s the “snow room,” which rains cold flakes from the ceiling to help you cool down. Then there are the treatments: massages, body treatments, and facials from the top masseuses and aestheticians in the business. 3570 Las Vegas Blvd., (855) 761-7757

Ciel Spa
The new SLS Las Vegas’s boutique spa has all the amenities (and then some) of a spa twice its size. Bask in the herbal steam room, or simply enjoy the oversized experience showers before a facial in one of the 10 treatment rooms. Philippe Starck’s minimalist design and décor sets a heavenly scene for spagoers: think plenty of modern touches and shades of white, grey and chrome. For a special splurge, book the lavish couple’s massage suite. 2535 S Las Vegas Blvd., (866) 782-0655

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental

Everything about this non-gaming oasis screams luxury, starting with its two-story spa built in the traditions of 1930s Shanghai. Treatments are seeped in ancient Oriental practices and include everything from Qi balancing to a jade enzyme facial. Some of its more popular treatments include a Diamond Magnetic Lift, which applies a mud mask with diamond dust and then massages using magnetic tools, and a Luminescence treatment that finishes with the application of pearl powder for an extra glow. 3752 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 590-8886

Bellagio Spa
Bellagio gets creative with its treatments, which they show off in stellar Journey packages that range from Detox (massage, mud mask, seaweed wrap, and peppermint pedicure) to a mother/daughter mani/pedi. Men may sign up for a Gentleman’s Escape, which includes an 80-minute Athletes Revival massage and a facial, and adventurous couples may spring for Couple’s Reflection, which takes guests from the massage table to the pool, for a dreamy aqua therapy ritual, before finishing off with a facial. 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 693-7472

Drift Spa & Hammam
Take a much-needed break from a stay at the longtime party-heavy Palms by disappearing into its Drift spa. Start by relaxing in the co-ed hammam steam room, sweating out any toxins and warming your muscles. Couples treatments may be booked in private rooms with outdoor gardens, or order one of the seasonal treats using fresh ingredients, such as fig or pumpkin for fall. Classic massages may be personalized via Biofreeze for sore muscles, aromatherapy, or hot stones. 4321 W Flamingo Rd., (702) 944-3219


Reliquary Bath House

Reliquary, inside Hard Rock Hotel, uses a soothing design of turquoise tiles and beautiful cabanas to create a watery wonderland. After spending time in the wet spa, a list of unique treatments will soothe body and soul, starting with its signature Harmonic Massage, which incorporates acupuncture, and Drum Sticks, which uses bamboo rods for kneading out stubborn knots. Men’s options include the King of Rock facial and many massage options that work on strong muscles, and there are options aimed at Vegas issues such as sun damage and toxin build-up. Stop by the fresh juice bar on the way out. 4455 Paradise Rd., (702) 693-5520

Sahra Spa & Hammam
Cosmopolitan’s Sahra is just the sanctuary a guest at the trendy hotel needs. Constructed of sandstone, the spa calms from the second you enter, aided by dramatic mood lighting. Spa suites allow couples or groups to have a private spot to hang out, relax, and maybe order a bottle of champagne between treatments. Unlike the other hammams on the Strip, Sahra uses its for unique treatments, instead of as part of the wet spa facilities. Its ultimate Sahra Journey inside the hammam starts off with a hot stone massage before leading into a mud and honey body mask and finishing off with a full-body massage. 3708 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 698-7000

Tucked into a corner of CityCenter, the gorgeous non-gaming (and LEED Gold-certified) Vdara is a breath of fresh air, its eco-friendly spa a hidden gem. Holistic-leaning, the spa makes use of nature’s freshest ingredients, such as jasmine flowers and fresh lavendar. There are five Naturopathica facials on the menu ranging from tea tree to aloe and chamomile, and four massage options. 2600 W Harmon Ave., (702) 590-2111

Spa at Wynn
Spa at Wynn is consistently one of the best, starting with its grand entrance and (co-ed) waiting rooms, where orchids and calming water features under an enormous skylight prep your mind for a relaxing treatment. In the secret garden-like pockets for plunge pools and treatment tables throughout the spa, lily pads and curtains of beads play with the natural light shining in. Couples have several options to choose from, and there is an entire menu just for facials. 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 770-3900
