A desert-inspired Sin City refuge

12 Treatment Rooms

Hidden away from the action-packed casinos, bustling restaurants and pulsing nightclubs of the Vegas Strip is The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, located within the behemoth Mandalay Bay resort.

A unique hotel-in-hotel nesting inside one of the city’s most iconic resorts, here you can find true respite from what happens in Vegas. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa recently underwent a renovation to refresh its interior spaces and the new design is warm and intimate. And while the design may have changed, the intuitive seamless service that locals and visitors have come to know remains steadfast. The Spa at Four Seasons is the place to find your center, right in the middle of the desert.

The Design

Playing to the theme of the wide-open spaces that surround Las Vegas, design firm EDG used the desert as its palette to re-envision this beloved Vegas spa.

You are welcomed with an oversize installation of walnut hardwood in the reception area. Other pieces, from art partner Eaton Fine Art, are staggered throughout and include a driftwood mosaic sculpture, located in the corridor, forming a puzzle motif and meant to mimic abandoned shards of timber aged by the extreme elements of the desert. Also, you’ll see various landscape images, from Kim Hudson’s shots of Red Rock Canyon to Jeff Sullivan’s black and white image of rock walls.

A coed Zen lounge shrouded in sheers invites a cup of tea before or after a service and a dozen treatment rooms with two couples suites provides the intimate foundation for a program that’s a leader in relaxation. Inside these sanctuaries, the décor is finished with metallic hues and materials such as bronze, granite and cork.

The lockers, showers and changing room are ample and bright and feature an additional sitting room as well an inviting eucalyptus steam experience that will clear the senses with a blissful aroma.

The Treatments

Taking a fresh approach to body and beauty, the menu boasts many progressive and on-trend services. One such innovation is the cupping therapy that can be booked for either 50 or 100 minutes. Silicone cups are used to massage the body, creating a gentle suction sensation that draws out imperfections and increases circulation. It is both invigorating and relaxing.

For the face, the Four Seasons Ultimate is just that — 80 minutes of toning your most valuable asset. Focusing on a lifting massage with the NuFace nonsurgical facelift device, collagen gets a boost and skin becomes more luminous. The service is finished off with a peel and a cooling eye treatment because there is no such thing as too much hydration in the desert.

You’ll also find loads of other treatments, from traditional (customizable massage, organic facials) to unique (warm salt stone massage, soothing after-sun wrap). And last year, adjacent to the spa, Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas unveiled a nail bar specializing in both manicures and pedicures. Eight services are offered across three manicure stations and three plush pedicure chairs. Bring your besties and make it a pre-party.

The Extras

No trip to the spa is complete without a few goodies to take home. Products on offer from Naturopathica, Phytomer, Pure Fiji and Ajne — all used in the treatments — give the ability to continue the regimen on your own.

In addition, the fitness center has high-tech virtual equipment from Matrix Fitness because there’s never a day off in Vegas, even when it comes to the gym.
