Treat yo’ self at these serene spas in Sin City
By Melissa Gill
Back in 1985, fourth grader Sean Moeller founded National Relaxation Day (August 15), says National Day Calendar. In an interview with Valerie Monson for Des Moines Register, Moeller told her the proper way to celebrate this holiday is to not do anything of value like cleaning or running errands. I think Moeller was ahead of his time. This day recognizes the importance of making time to relax and just be. This sounds like the perfect opportunity to treat yo’ self to a Swedish massage or a mani-pedi combo at a soothing spa. For National Relaxation Day, here are five spas on the Las Vegas Strip to escape to destress this Sunday.
Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace
Step into an ancient Roman-inspired spa ready to release all the tensions brought on from a long week. Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace is a 50,000-square foot oasis offering a wide range of signature treatments and spa services. Book their 50 minute all-natural facial, Qua emerginC Scientific Organics Facial with a Paraffin Hand Treatment ($230). With botanical, pure ingredients this service nourishes skin with an antioxidant-rich plant and marine extract. Combined, this skincare treatment hydrates skin and improves skin tone. Leave the spa glowing after a rejuvenating experience.
Voie Spa & Salon at Paris
Indulge in a spa inspired by France’s countryside at Voie Spa & Salon at Paris Las Vegas. Go all in and try their Voie Luxe Combination ($345). This 100 minute luxurious spa experience engages guests by adding sensory details. Voie Luxe Combination begins with an Aromatherapy custom massage. Inspired by France, they offer lavender as a scent from Provence, cedar and cypress as aromas from France’s forests, notes of jasmine inspired by French Polynesia or sweet orange from Corsica.
