Top Spa On The Strip: Vdara Spa & Salon


All it takes is a few hours in Las Vegas to rattle any preconceived notions regarding “Sin City.” Even if you plan on shuffling cards, playing slots, taking in the showgirls, and looking for Elvis make sure to take time to pamper while partying in Vegas.

Vdara Spa packs in tranquility, treatment, and total rejuvenation. Holistic health, supported by the healing power of nature, is the focus of the Vdara Spa menu. This expansive list includes body treatments, massages, facials, hair services and manicure/pedicure options. Personalized, holistic spa services incorporate the best of what nature has to offer.


The Vdara focus on utilizing high-grade, natural ingredients derived from herbs, flowers, fruits, vegetables, and oils is apparent in every signature body treatment. It features innovative treatments like Citrus Sorbet Body Polish, Espresso Mud Body Scrub, and the Cactus & Agave Nectar Toning Wrap… you’re in the desert, after all!

If you spend all day hiking in the desert sands (or indulging on the strip) the Peppermint & Tea Tree Reflexology will be your antidote. Vdara offers traditional Swedish and deep tissue massages, of course, but a hot stone or four hands massage might shake things up a bit. Unique naturopathica massages on the menu include French lavender soothing, arnica muscle Repair, and deep forest detoxifying treatments for 50-110 minutes. Vdara’s jet lag relief will alleviate any discomfort caused by that pesky window seat.

Feeling slightly overly bearish? No worries! Back or chest waxing can be arranged for $75.

Once you’re feeling swimsuit ready head to the Vdara Pool & Lounge where you can have more than a dip and a sip.  Spa cabanas features ceiling fans, safety deposit boxes, hand sinks, and a stocked refrigerator with mineral waters and fresh fruit.

Book a pool & lounge signature massage before taking a dip in the cool blue waters of the Vdara Pool. Don’t be surprised if you smell the aromas of hibiscus flowers, jasmine, and lemongrass in the air.

Vdara spa specialists work with Akhassa, a line from Thailand. When paired with the cabana purifying body treatment & massage the benefits are unlimited. Regardless of whether you just spend the rest of the day at the pool, at the slots, or in the bars on the Fruit Loop, you’ll feel refreshed, relaxed, and ready to embark on a Las Vegas adventure.
