Rejuvenate at a spa in a theatre-inspired setting with friends
By Melissa Gill | Las Vegas, NV | Resorts World
Resorts World Las Vegas continues to elevate their versatile venue with the debut of their new wellness retreat, Awana Spa. This spa is the first and only spa in the U.S. to offer the Art of Aufguss Treatment Show. Additionally, they provide other holistic treatments like Crystal Healing Therapies and an Immersive Fountain of Youth. Instead of easing the body, mind and soul in the traditional way, the resort offers a unique social approach to massage therapy. Guests may rejuvenate alongside others while experiencing new levels of bliss.
As we explore the resort’s latest addition, here is a breakdown of some of their most unique offerings.
Art of Aufguss Treatment Show
The Art of Aufguss Treatment Show was inspired by European saunas that aim to reinvigorate a group in a social gathering style. This treatment takes guests into a theatre-like setting that includes a heated room, aromatherapy, choreographed music plus lighting and dancing towels. In true Vegas fashion, guests are offered a luxury spa day with a show.
Immersive Fountain of Youth
The Fountain of Youth shines through the spa’s design and houses six pools, a heated Crystal Laconium room, steam rooms, tepidarium chairs, mist showers and the Rain Walk. The venue changes throughout the day with LED screens that transport guests to serene sceneries. Another added feature is temperature. The room’s climate also mirrors the destinations projected in the spa to immerse guests through unique sensory elements. Imagine feeling a cool breeze while viewing a warm tropical island. The spa’s added attention to detail goes beyond a typical massage parlor.
Awana Spa Massages and Bodywork
Awana Spa services offer a wide variety of massage choices including Himalayan Salt Stone (60 or 90 minutes), Into the Redwoods (90 minutes) and Macchu Picchu (90 minutes), to name a few. Each massage comes with its own techniques and amenities to give each guest a unique experience. Massage service add-ons are also available such as cupping, gemstone masks and more.
Himalayan Salt Stone is a full body massage applying medium to deep pressure. The warm stones help ease muscle tension and enhance the body through using deep tissue techniques. 60 minutes costs $220 and 90 minutes costs $305.
Into the Redwoods is a nature-inspired treatment that weaves in a unique blend of essential oils to offer guests a grounding and tranquil experience. This healing service costs $360.
Macchu Picchu is more than a massage session, it is a spiritual healing session. To clear and energize the body, they use crystals to balance a guest’s body rhythms and chakras. This special massage style costs $360.
Awana Spa also caters to couples looking for a sweet retreat. For guests that want to experience the spa with their partner, they offer Javanese Lulur–A three hour Balinese tradition experience that includes a body scrub, wrap and shower side by side for $625 and Midnight in Bali--A two hour session with a softening body scrub and shower plus a customized massage for the couple for $450.
From anti-aging treatments to mud cleansing balms to cold pressed hemp oils, Awana Spa gives guests an array of facials to try. Here’s just three of the many services to consider: Blue Diamond Facial, Gentleman’s Facial and In the Clouds. The Awana Spa treatments, such as facials, also make great gifts for friends or relatives during holiday season.
Blue Diamond Facial is a 60 minute facial firming and brightening treatment using a gentle enzyme exfoliation to energize dull skin. This face massage costs $240.
Gentleman’s Facial is either a 60 minute or 90 minute session that features a Hungarian Moor mud mask followed by a cleanse with mild exfoliation. This balm consists of tropical fruit extracts that help reduce pore size and treat sensitive skin. For 60 minutes, the price is $220 and for 90 minutes the price is $295.
In the Clouds Ritual is a 120 minute facial treatment that uses cold-pressed hemp, marula, jojoba and olive oils plus a kombucha back exfoliation that helps boost blood circulation and moisturize skin. Afterwards, they apply warm body oils to relax tense muscles and nourish skin before finally adding orchid stem cells and hydrating glacier tonics to moisturize and revive the guest’s complexion. This facial treatment is priced at $420.
Awana Spa Foot Spa Lounge
Rest your feet and recover from jet lag with Malaysian style treatments that de-stress the tensions in the feet, hands and shoulders. The healing services apply techniques such as energy work, gua sha and massage to concentrate on reflex points. For foot spa treatments, guests must be reserved with a Fountain of Youth Passport or a spa treatment that is 60 minutes or more. Here are a few selections of T.L.C. they offer to help guests unwind from their daily grind.
Phoenix Rising is a 30 minute Malaysian foot massage that is a welcomed add-on after a visit to the heated Crystal Laconium room. This additional service priced at $85.
Neck and Shoulders is a 30 minute percussion therapy aiming to relieve all the pressure built up in the neck and shoulder area. For guests that want to add this on to their massage service, it costs $80.
Hand Treatment is a 30 minute treatment that works on softening the hands with a hand mask and massage. It’s an ideal massage therapy add-on to alleviate soreness in overworked hands, especially for guests that work laborious jobs that require heavy lifting or excessive typing that may cause their hand muscles to stiffen. This additional treatment is priced at $80.
