Featuring tropical-inspired treatments in a matching atmosphere, South Point's Costa Del Sur Spa & Salon is the ideal escape from the desert.
With sunset-colored walls and an ocean-inspired interior, you'll truly feel like you're in paradise. Costa Del Sur offers 28 treatment rooms, a spacious relaxation lounge, separate men's and women's wet spa areas and a workout facility. The separate relaxation room is reminiscent of a mountain lodge, complete with a flickering fireplace. Relax on oversized lounge chairs and enjoy complimentary beverages and fresh fruit before and after your service. There's also an espresso maker and a variety of teas available.
If you're bringing your sweetie, then you're in luck. The spa features a separate relaxation area strictly for couples getting a spa treatment together. Since the couple's lounge includes a Jacuzzi and a steam room, don't forget to pack your swimsuit. The area also features views overlooking the pool -- a nice touch to your spa experience.
Even if you're solo, the separate men's and women's wet spa area is also a great place to unwind. In addition to an oversized cold plunge pool, the spa features a Jacuzzi, a steam room, sauna and even two separate cascading waterfall showers. These heated cascade showers also serve as a nice massage for your back. You may never want to leave.
For the ultimate shower experience, women can choose a shower in the locker room with a scent of their choice. Delicious body wash and shampoo scents include pineapple, mango and cucumber melon. During the cooler months, experience scents like pumpkin and pomegranate. These products are also available for sale in the spa retail shop.
Costa Del Sur offers a variety of massages, facials, body wraps and calming rituals. If you're planning a spa day with your mate book the Private Party, a fun way to spend one-on-one time with each other. You'll "paint" your partner from head to toe with detoxifying mud from around the world. This is your chance to express your artistic side. After rinsing off, the service continues with a side-by-side 50-minute Swedish massage.
One of the most popular treatments is the Goddess of the Sun Ritual. The service begins with a full-body exfoliation with coconut sugar scrub combined with your choice of a coconut, star fruit, passion flower or pineapple infusion. After your exfoliation, you'll get a hydrating body wrap with exotic nut oils from the South Pacific. The tropical service also includes a cool stone facial and warmed scalp massage.
If you just can't get enough of beach-themed treatments, come back and try Surf City, which features a tropical body scrub exfoliation, followed by a warm coconut milk body massage.
For women getting ready for a night out in town, there are curling irons, blow dryers and several styling products available. Well-lit mirrors and personal vanities also make it easier to get ready.
Salon treatments include pedicures and manicures, hair services (including formal up-dos) and makeup application. Unlike most salons where the different sections are out in the open, the salon separates the hair, pedicure and nail stations. Your experience will feel more intimate. The salon features five pedicure stations (complete with glass foot wash bowls), three manicure stations and a state-of-the-art makeup bar. The salon's neutral colors, paired with luxurious floor tile and wall designs, deliver a classy but comfortable vibe.
Costa Del Sur sells products used in treatments, as well as Pure Fiji's all-natural ingredients body line and Tigi "Hair Reborn" products available for every hair type.
