Designed by Todd-Avery Lenahan, the super-stylish Spa at Encore Las Vegas blends the aesthetics of Morocco, Versailles and a Buddhist temple to create a uniquely exotic vibe. The oversized gold North African lamps, formal European furniture, Asian statues and the gently latticed patterns of the backlit ceilings make you feel as though you’ve just arrived in a fairytale foreign land. Ivory and gold tones and intimate lighting from small chandeliers bathe the spacious grand lobby at the Las Vegas spa in a warm glow. Other areas are more intimate, such as the waiting room, which has a fireplace and flat-screen TV set into a white marble wall and light wooden panels that alternate with thin gold strips on the adjacent walls. The relaxation area’s walls are draped in luxurious floor-to-ceiling teal curtains with a silver damask print, and lining them are cream-colored clawfoot chaise lounges with brown velvet sections and brown bolsters and gold barrel-shaped tables. Meanwhile in the treatment rooms, a pale gold wallpaper with subtle flower pattern in a slightly darker warms the space and a rectangular mirror runs through the middle. But the most impressive part of the design can only be seen on the all-too-short walk from the relaxation room to the treatment room — a hallway carpeted with a gold, cream and maroon Oriental rug and lined with ornate oversized Moroccan lamps, 7-foot-tall ivory vases and chandeliers against wine-red walls that lead to a life-sized golden statue of the Buddhist goddess of compassion, Guanyin.
