With 43,000 sq. ft. of spa space, the Sahra Spa & Hammam at Cosmopolitan offers the natural beauty and serenity of Nevada’s deserts and canyons. Featuring sandstone walls reminiscent of Red Rock Canyon, bubbling water from artesian wells, and an authentic Turkish hammam—one of three in North America—the Sahra Spa & Hammam evokes desert cultures from around the world, and offers some truly extraordinary packages to nourish and refresh like only a desert oasis could.

Lasting no less than 2.5 hours, the Sahra Journey will take guests on a deeply purifying, multi-layer experience. Incorporating rich muds and natural honey to detoxify and nourish, as well as either the warming and balancing Moroccan rose, or the calming and radiant Malaysian silk essence to purify, guests will benefit from a range of treatments including skin cleansing, steam and heat treatments, an herbal relaxation period and finally a full-body massage. Rates start at $365 pp, with options to include up to four persons for a duration of up to 4.5 hours.

And if it’s a “suite” deal your clients are looking for, Sahra Spa & Hammam offer up the Sahra Suites, which provide a tailored experience for the ultimate in private spa luxury, allowing guests to remain side-by-side while one receives a mani/pedi and the other gets a massage and facial. Sahra Suites can accommodate up to eight and feature private areas for dressing, treatments, lounging and dining, as well as private steam and sauna facilities. Rates start at $95 per hour for up to eight hours, with a minimum $300 on services and 4-hour booking. Overnight hotel rates start at $195 per night.

“Foun”tastic Surrender

“Spa Bellagio is a destination. There is an opportunity to create a different experience each visit,” says Tammi Furce, director of Spa and Salon Bellagio. “Guests can expect to be welcomed and pampered from arrival to departure.”

As far as recommended treatments go, “Our personal favorite is the Deep Coconut Surrender—can you say ‘ahhh’? Then, if you wish to experience something like no other, you must try the Danza Delle Mani Massage, inspired by the fountains of Bellagio.

“It is a choreographed massage performed by two therapists in perfect unison,” explains Furce, “also including dry brushing and a Meditative Shirodara treatment.” Rates for the 70-minute Deep Coconut Surrender start at $225 pp, while the 70-minute Danza Delle Mani Massage starts at $475 pp.

Meanwhile, Furce says, “The Bellagio Detox to Relax package is our most sought-after experience. It includes the entire spa and salon experience, leaving you feeling cleansed and refreshed.” A detailed description of the package includes three hours of detoxification through a 50-minute custom massage including mud mask; a 50-minute thermal seaweed body wrap to remove toxins and cleanse the body; an invigorating mint pedicure, featuring an herbal soak and essential oils; and a complimentary smoothie to be sure guests are feeling refreshed from the inside out. Pricing for the spa package starts at $385 pp.

Turn any of these treatments and packages into a vacation getaway with an overnight stay. Rates start at $139 per night.

The Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Venetian, meanwhile, features fitness classes, onsite barber and salon, and a variety of massage and facial treatments. Their star, though, is Aquavana, which, the resort says, is the “world’s most profound aquathermal experience.” The European-inspired Aquavana is a suite of thermal spa cabins, tubs and bathing experiences, offering both coed clothing required environments, as well as single-sex, clothing-optional environments. Individual rooms within Aquavana include Experiential Rains, with multi-sensory cooling showers; Herbal Laconium, with warming herbal-infused steams; Salt Grotto, with “sea air” washing over heated benches around a bubbling fountain; the Wave Room, a domed canopy with reflected water movements that provides the meditative experience of watching waves breaking overhead; and one of the most unique, the Igloo, which features cool air and three Arctic Mist experiences enhanced by twinkling fiber optics.

The Venetian is offering a Canyon Ranch Luxury package, which includes 2-night accommodations in a Venetian Luxury Suite; a $200 Canyon Ranch SpaClub credit per suite, per day; and a $15 credit for a refreshing treat at Canyon Ranch Grill. Rates start at $229 per night.
