The two-story Spa & Salon Bellagio offers guests 65,000 square feet of luxury and pampering.
The spa, located on the second floor, features a Zen-influenced design that blends granite, travertine and jade surfaces with water walls and hand-blown glass decor.
There are several tranquil lounge areas, juice bars and an open balcony overlooking the beautiful Bellagio conservatory.
Separate men's and women's spa areas provide large locker rooms, private dressing areas, vanity areas, hot tubs, cold plunge pools, dry saunas, spray-on tan areas and steam rooms. The women's spa also has two vichy showers and two hydrotherapy rooms for treatments such as mineral and mud baths.
The Spa Bellagio offers 56 treatment rooms, including four couples rooms, in which to receive a variety of distinct services such as facials, body scrubs, wraps, peels and massages.
All the traditional massages are available as well as specialty treatments such as the Bellagio's signature, the Bellagio Stone Massage. During the massage, compresses of chamomile tea bags and chilled aquamarine gemstones are used to massage the face, soothe the eyes and reduce puffiness.
Another unique massage is the Watsu, which is performed in a special room. Watsu is an aquatic massage combining stretches of Zen Shiatsu and the element of floating in warm water.
One of the most popular massages at Bellagio is the Ashiatsu, an ancient form of body work using deep compression. It is performed on a massage table by a barefoot therapist who holds on to bars attached to the ceiling.
For guests who are focused on fitness, a 6,000-square-foot fitness facility overlooking the pool offers treadmills, bikes, elliptical trainers and Pilates equipment. The Bamboo Studio is a 1,000-square-foot exercise room complete with bamboo flooring that features classes ranging from Pilates to kickboxing.
Everyone needs that final bit of relaxation before heading back to the real world, so don't miss the spa's meditation room. Water walls surround the dim room, and candles provide a warm glow. A mix of New Age music and sounds of nature completes the soothing environment.
While the spa at Bellagio is open only to hotel guests, the salon, located on the first floor, is open to the public.
Services include waxing, manicures, pedicures, airbrush makeup application and a barbershop.
The salon also features a lounge area, two private couples rooms and a private room for VIPs or for those who just want to feel like one.
