SPECIALTIES: Here you’ll find everything from pole dancing classes to airbrush tanning. Try the Russian Bania Ritual, which starts with a thermal activated hot scrub, followed by a vigorous deep tissue Russian sports massage. Or, brave the Ancient Cane Ritual, which uses bamboo reeds for drumming, tapping and rolling to work deep within muscles and trigger points.

SPECIALTIES: Dedicated to the centuries old practice of purification (which you’ll probably need while in Vegas), the hammam combines body detoxification, steam treatments and cooling baths.

SPECIALTIES: Here you’ll find treatments based on ancient healing traditions from India and the Americas. Try the spa’s signature Mojave Rain, based on Native American sacred plants, which involves smudging the “ritual space” with sage and sweetgrass and then cascading essential oils along the spine.
