Indulge in a blissful dose of "mio" time at the Forbes Four-Star Spa Mio. Located away from the bustling casino on the pool level at M Resort, this spa and salon sanctuary is easily accessible to guests and visitors.
Tucked tranquilly behind an inviting fountain feature at the foot of a staircase and glass elevator, Spa Mio juxtaposes modern décor and nature-inspired touches for a stylish yet serene ambience. Shimmering chandeliers play off of decorative wood accents while fresh, bright flowers soften the bold furnishings. The spa's reception and waiting area as well as the 5,500-square-foot fitness facility feature natural lighting with stunning views of the M's sparkling pool.
At 23,000 square feet, Spa Mio houses sixteen treatment rooms and a romantic couple's area. Separate ADA-compliant wet spa areas for men and women include sauna, stream room and two hot plunges at the foot of a hypnotic waterfall fixture. As you enter the steam room, the therapeutic scent of eucalyptus greets and detoxifies your senses. Cool off with moisturizing cucumbers and wet ice towels or a refreshing rain shower, located in the same area.
The intimate relaxation lounge is an ideal spot for balancing your mind pre-or post-treatment with plush seating, gentle music and liberal reading material. Enjoy refreshments like fruit, tea, coffee and sparkling water. For a natural immunity boost, sip on hydrating ice water with freshly sliced cucumbers and lemon. Spa Mio’s friendly and attentive spa attendants can even bring you fresh fruit smoothies or a light meal.
Spa Mio features an indulgent mix of relaxing and revitalizing treatments, including several facials. Brighten your skin prior to a special evening and reveal your luminous complexion with the rejuvenating Brilliance Facial. Nutrient-rich vitamin C reduces fine lines and counteracts the damaging effects of the sun while anti-aging peptides and natural brighteners invigorate the skin. Your spa therapist can assist in suggesting facial enhancement that cater to your skin type.
Spa Mio also offers a variety of massage and body treatments. The Mio Signature Massage and accompanying signature facial offers total indulgence from head to toe while the Desert to Sea Detox stimulates the lymphatic system with a coffee scrub, ginger-mint foot wrap and full body oil application.
Shimmering beaded curtains highlight Spa Mio's full-service salon, which offers hair styling, coloring, barber services and more. As a bonus to the hair-washing experience, each shampoo station comes with a Shiatsu back-massaging chair. Your pedicure chair also includes a gentle, compressed-air massage.
Spa and salon products from Moroccan Oil, Kimberly Parry, glo Therapeutics and more are available for purchase in the reception area. To avoid hiking through the busy casino before or after your relaxing service, there is a parking lot conveniently located just outside the spa.
