Spa Atlantis

A soothing Reno respite
Although Spa Atlantis occupies 30,000 square feet, the feel is intimate, almost meandering, as if the spa had grown organically and was waiting just for you. This massive space encompasses a retail foyer, men’s and women’s locker rooms with cedar saunas and tea lounges, treatment rooms and therapy lounges, indoor and outdoor pools, and a cardio theater and fitness center complete with yoga mats.

Thick carpets and velvet drapes, natural woods, and more than 100 different varieties of marble, tile and stone help unify the overall look of the spa, but the treatment rooms and lounges themselves are lavishly diverse.

To signal your entry into the Reno respite, staff members gently shake a bead-filled “rain stick” before a treatment begins. They also shake the stick after a treatment ends to send you, soothingly, on your way.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • As where some spas feel almost clinical, Spa Atlantis does not. Low lighting, natural materials and a location utterly removed from the casino floor create a mellow mood.
  • Staffers are exceedingly friendly (and extremely attentive to details such as making sure that bottled water is always arranged in the shape of a triangle). On one recent visit, staff members gave impromptu tours to people curious about treatment rooms they hadn’t yet experienced.
  • In its 15 treatment rooms, Spa Atlantis offers facials, wraps, massages, scrubs and polishing, couples treatments, spa pedicures and signature treatments.
  • One of our favorite body treatments is the Rasul ceremony in which you massage mineral-rich muds onto your body in a tiled chamber filled with herbal steam.
  •  Another signature body treatment is the Pantai Luar, a trademarked East Asian massage that uses heated sachets packed with herbs, coconut and lime in an effort to create a sense of well being for the client. Spa Atlantis is one of only a handful of spas in the United States certified to perform the Pantai Luar.
Things to Know

  • The spa menu, spa specials and packages, and information on poolside cabanas can also be found at this website.
  • The age requirement to enter the spa’s is 18, making Atlantis the perfect getaway for adults.
  • Since the spa’s treatment schedule fills quickly, it is best to make an appointment several days in advance, even if you haven’t yet checked into Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.
The Treatments
  • Spa Atlantis provides seven massage options to its guests and typically last 60 or 90 minutes, per your request.
  • With hot stones, warmed rocks are placed on chakra energy points, while the Swedish massage helps improve circulation and stimulates muscles and joints.
  • If you want the therapist to hone in on deep knots and trigger points, try the target massage. But if you have contracted muscles, you will want to consider a deep tissue massage.
  • The aromatherapy massage provides healing to the body when flower and herb oils are worked into the dermis.
  • And there are also 60-minute prenatal/postnatal massages designed to ease discomfort before or after giving birth.
The Facilities
  • The Laconium Relaxation Lounge features tiled seats and stone floors heated more mildly than a steam room, allowing for a longer stay.
  • The Brine Inhalation-Light Therapy Lounge showcases a brine waterfall cascading over a granite fountain, as well as a color wheel moving through the spectrum.
  • In the Aqua Spa Lounge, don’t miss the experiential shower with four sound and water settings: ice fog, thunderstorm, rain forest and waterfall.
