The amenities at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas really set it apart. Nearly everything about this beautiful spa that takes style cues from 1930s Shanghai offers a welcome boost to your mind and body, but we’ve rounded up a list of our five favorite amenities you should be sure to check out:
1. Our female inspectors love the Moroccan-inspired Rhassoul (sorry, guys, this treatment is ladies-only). There’s just something healing about the mud and the heat and the shower afterward that leaves us feeling completely rejuvenated.
2. The Turkish Hammam is another favorite (and both women and men can enjoy the experience together). The scrub on heated marble tables is both relaxing and invigorating. It’s the perfect treatment if you’re in town with a group and want to enjoy the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa with your party. The room can be booked for up to eight people.
3. The spa offers several heat and water thermal experiences before or after your treatment. We recommend rinsing off in the personal Experience Showers, which use special lighting, scents, sounds and water pressures — ranging from a light sprinkle to a heavy rainfall — to recreate an array of relaxing environments. You can choose among five showers: Arctic Mist, Body Spray, Island Storm, Body Drench and Tropical Rain. Feel free to play around; we always do.
4. If you love it hot and cold, we recommend a soak in the Vitality Pool, heated to a steamy 104 F. with sweeping views of the Las Vegas Strip and private reclining seats. Then head to the refreshing ice fountain to cool your face and body with refreshing ice chips — which also help soothe aching muscles.
5. To really heat things up, head to the spa’s Laconium Room, a relaxation room with contoured bench-style seating that’s kept at 140 F with a slight humidity. It’s a less intense experience than a sauna, but will still help you detox by stimulating circulation. You can also release toxins and stress in the men’s or women’s aromatherapy steam rooms, which are heated to 118 F and infused with herbal-scented steam.
