It’s been pretty hot in Las Vegas lately – in terms of both the weather and the action. But autumn is just around the corner and so are cooler desert temperatures, fashionable boots, pumpkin spice lattes, and fall-inspired treatments at some of our favourite Las Vegas spas.
Usher in sweater weather by breathing in the nourishing aromas of ginger, coffee, hot spiced rum and pumpkin while indulging in body scrubs, massages, facials and more.
The Ginger Cocoa Body Contour at the MGM Grand Spa makes use of comforting warm cocoa and is personalised to aid against fatty deposits, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and increase firmness in skin. The dual-action treatment aims to maintain and restore a harmonious figure – just in time for holiday parties. $295 (£185) for 75 minutes.
The Hot Spiced Rum Stone Massage at the intimate and ultra modern BATHHOUSE at THEHotel is so soothing, don’t be surprised if you fall asleep. The treatment combines warm stones with essential oils of cinnamon, clove and arnica leaving you feeling completely relaxed. There’s even a crme brÃ»lée body treatment available, if your tastes incline towards something sweeter. $165 (£104) for 50 minutes.
The Milk and Honey Body Wrap with Mini Facial at Spa Bellagio is performed in a warm Vichy shower and leaves skin feeling silky smooth. Skin is exfoliated with warm milk and sugar, and then wrapped in a milk and honey mask. The treatment is then paired with a hydrating mini facial, designed to pamper you from head to toe. $210 (£130) for 50 minutes.
Get a fresh new look for autumn with the Green Tea Eye Treatment at The Spa at ARIA. Designed to soothe tired or strained eyes with antioxidant-rich green tea compresses, the treatment is available as a $30 (£19) enhancement to any facial. Enjoy a relaxing facial massage with cool marble stones to complete the experience.
