A one-of-a-kind Midwest relaxation mecca

7 Treatment Rooms

Nowhere in the city of Detroit, or state of Michigan for that matter, can boast a luxury spa the scope of the MGM Grand Detroit’s Immerse Spa. The 20,000-square-foot spa offers a calming, get-back-to-basics escape in the heart of the city. Famed designer Tony Chi’s chic simplicity is evident in the decorative details of this three-story rejuvenation retreat, from the recurrence of amber tones to the use of recycled wood. Carrying a comprehensive slate of traditional services (including the always popular Swedish massage and a classic cleansing facial) and specialty services (like immersion soaks and herbal body wraps), Immerse is a one-of-a-kind Midwest relaxation mecca.

The Services

Eight treatment rooms await guests looking to rejuvenate their body and mind with one or more of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa’s myriad pampering services. Massage options include the Four X Two, during which a pair of masseuses will simultaneously deliver a soothing Swedish rubdown, doubling the relaxation effect, and the Aroma, an aromatic oil-infused service that will rouse the senses.

Facial treatments at the Detroit spa mean you can look forward to age-defying TLC for the skin.  The popular 80-minute Immerse signature involves a gentle cleansing, an AHA peel, a brightening mask and day cream application. The professional-grade Image line of skincare products is another Immerse specialty.

Mix and match spa services for the ultimate mind-body retreat with one of the Dwell Spa Journeys. Inspired by Chinese medicine’s emphasis on the interconnection of earth, wood, metal, fire and water, each spa journey is aptly named for one of these elements and includes three to four complementary treatments and a light lunch to cap off this half day of luxury.

If you want to share your spa day with someone special, opt for a couples treatment such as the Wood Spa Journey, featuring a healing immersions soak, a body ritual (which can include an herbal body wrap and shiatsu massage) and a spa lunch. A couples treatment room allows pairs to relax just inches from one another, enabling a mindful reconnection.

Wrap up your day of pampering with a selection of manicures, pedicures and makeup services featuring mineral-based La Bella Donna cosmetics.

The Amenities

A state-of-the-art fitness center is accessible to Immerse spa and MGM Grand Detroit hotel guests. Head there before your spa appointment to work out on the treadmills, cross-trainers, stationery bikes, weight machines and free weights.

A men’s steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi allow for post-workout decompression as do a women’s steam room and hot tub. A must is a visit to Immerse’s pristine infinity-edged pool, whose tranquil waters can’t help but calm the mind. While away the rest of the day by the pool in an inviting oversized chaise lounge or a private cabana. A spa-specific menu with an array of salads, including a Michigan green salad peppered with walnuts and dried cherries, and flatbreads, including one with roasted mushrooms, pesto and goat cheese, allows for healthy poolside dining.

After you leave the pool, slip on your plush robe and make your way to the posh changing rooms. There, under soothing lighting, you can have one more indulgence — a rainhead shower before departing to enjoy MGM Grand Detroit’s abundant dining, gaming and entertainment options.
