I stepped through spa entrance to find a bevy of lounges,
treatment rooms and resting areas. From floor to ceiling,
the space was a canvas of warm browns, reds and mustards.
The lighting and décor lent to the space the
feel of an earthy, Moroccan sanctuary.
I planned a half-day of pampering, starting with the

The treatment began with a light, full body brushing.

a much needed bikini wax. The technician was friendly,
efficient and thorough.
It was over quickly and the results were definitely

even the bright neon lights of Vegas couldn’t
bother me. A full menu of body scrubs and wraps, specialty
facials and salon services are available and all products
used in the spa are Elemis
and La Therapie. For exercise buffs, there is a full
fitness facility with one-on-one training, saunas, steam
rooms and hot tubs available in both the women’s
and men’s sides of the facility.
