When you get to the bottom of your gift list this winter, don't forget yourself! Carve out some time in your schedule to de-stress, recharge and start your new year at one of the many full-service oases in the city.
First stop this December: the Canyon Ranch Spaclub (canyonranchdestinations.com). Located at the Venetian and the Palazzo, the luxury getaway has designed a completely new series of treatments around the season to evoke a feeling of renewal.
One of the world’s largest day spas, Canyon Ranch’s offerings include the Pumpkin Latte Facial ($185), Hot Butter Rum Massage ($180), Candy Cane Scrub ($200), Hot Toddy Scrub and Massage ($350), Brandied Cranberry Fig Manicure ($90) and Pedicure ($110), and the Peppermint Sugar Foot Scrub ($27).
“[The purpose of the services is] to banish the old and feel anew using organic ingredients that replenish and hydrate leaving you radiant,” Canyon Ranch marketing director Becky Martino said.
For February, South Point Hotel’s Costa del Sur Spa and Salon (spacostadelsur.com) is celebrating Valentine’s Day with an entire month of specials using LaLicious products.
Amid sunset-colored walls and an ocean-inspired interior, spa-goers can invigorate themselves with a Sugar Kiss Exfoliation ($65), the Sugar Kiss Relaxation Massage ($115), the Sweet Kiss Facial ($145) or the Sugar Kiss Manicure and Pedicure ($110).
“The goal at the end of the treatments is to spoil your loved one with more sweet kisses,” Jody Corpuz, spa director of South Point’s Costa del Sur Spa & Salon, said.
Of course, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about indulging solo or spoiling loved ones. Lovebirds can also share in the spa experience — together.
The Grand Spa at MGM Grand (mgmgrand.com) is offering the Decadent Couples Massage ($270), a 50-minute Swedish-style rubdown that utilizes the uplifting scents of strawberries and champagne. A perfect complement to the service is the 50-minute anti-aging Chocolate Raspberry Facial ($190).
And for the ultimate escape, check into Spa at The Linq (caesars.com) and enjoy a Couples Journey Package ($375). It features an 80-minute massage in the only Himalayan Salt Cave on the Strip, where guests will be kneaded by candlelight in a calm and tranquil environment.
Time to rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit.
