IMG 7915Just about everything you can think of is super-sized at the Aria Resort, so it should come as no surprise that the spa is enormous as well.  Located on the Mezzanine level of the hotel, beside the entrance to the pool, The Spa at Aria has become one of my favorites on The Strip - not just for the facilities, but for the treatments and customer service as well.

IMG 5813While I generally prefer some of the larger spas on the Las Vegas Strip, I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for The Spa at the Mirage.  Yes, it’s smaller than some of the others, but it’s always quiet, relaxing and usually, blissfully uncrowded!   

At first glance, you’d hardly even know this was a spa.  Located toward the front of the shopping area of the Mirage, there’s a multi-purpose storefront that encompasses a shop with a large selection of bath and body products, as well as the entrances to the Fitness Center, the Kim Vo Salon and the spa itself.

IMG 6678The Royal Treatment Spa at the Excalibur Casino Hotel, has a reputation as a hidden gem.  It is definitely a bit hidden, but once I found it, they provided a very nice experience...and at excellent prices, no less!

IMG 6288When compared to some of the other spas on the Strip, The Grand Spa at MGM Grand is actually rather small.  Don’t let that fool you, however.  The Grand Spa is actually a peaceful spot in which to relax, take a steam, or even grab a snooze while waiting for an excellent treatment.

At the far end of the shopping area called The District, you’ll find the MGM pool complex, the fitness center, the Christophe Salon and the entrance to the Grand Spa.  The rippling wall of water behind the front desk is eye catching and immediately soothing.  There, you can book any of the treatments you might want - from massages to body treatments to facials and more.  If you’re a guest of the MGM Grand, you can also purchase a day pass to simply use the spa facilities.  I’ve almost always found the staff to be cordial and helpful.

IMG 6291Of all the spas in all of the Las Vegas hotels, Qua, in Caesar’s Palace is definitely one of my favorites. I feel it’s definitely one of the best in Vegas. I think Qua has set the bar very high for what the public should expect of a day spa in Las Vegas.

IMG 4538This is definitely one of my favorite spas on the Strip; possibly my very favorite.

There’s not much bad I can say about Spa Mandalay. I love pretty much everything about it. From the minute you check in at the front desk, you’ll find the friendly staff ready to help you with just about anything you need. Rachael, Miranda and various other attendants are always on hand to book appointments, give you information on any of the treatments, or sell day passes - day passes are only available for guests of Mandalay Bay Hotel, anyone else must book a treatment in order to use the spa.

IMG 4776The Glow spa at the newly renovated Tropicana hotel, is gorgeous. it’s sleek and immacculate, with white floors, black granite coutertops and glass partitions everywhere. The staff was courteous and reserved and I had high expectations for this particular spa. I’ve tried three other Mandara spas; two in Las Vegas - the spa at the Paris hotel and the one at Planet Hollywood, and one in Hawaii at the Hilton Waikiki Village. On this trip, I was staying at the Tropicana, so I thought I should give it a try.

What I found was not exactly what I had expected. This is definitely NOT to say that it was bad. It was not bad. It was simply not what I’ve come to expect of a day spa.
