With treatments tailored to the individual, an expert staff and a luxuriously serene ambience, a visit to ESPA at Vdara is more than a spa day ... it's a journey.
Located on the second floor of Vdara's boutique hotel, your journey begins as you walk off the elevator and into the sprawling 18,000-square-foot, two-level facility. A mesmerizing waterfall flows straight down from the second story behind the check-in desk, beckoning you up the rounded staircase.
When you ascend to the second level and walk behind the waterfall, your worldly cares disappear with every step. At the top of the stairs are two doors, one leading to the women’s spa on the left and one to the men’s on the right. Once inside, a relaxation lounge features natural lighting, reading material and a refreshment bar with a variety of mixed nuts and dried fruits, water and hot tea.
Just a few steps away from the lounge, the vanity area includes essential tools and toiletries, including straightening irons, blow dryers, brushes, hair spray, toothbrushes, shaving cream and products from the ESPA skin care brand. A wet spa with a sauna, eucalyptus steam room and hot plunge is available past the shower and vanity areas.
The spa facility exudes a modern, natural theme with wooden floors and waterfall fixtures, plus exquisite touches like fresh flowers and glass chandeliers.
But ambience is only part of the story at ESPA. A partnership between the lavish skincare, spa brand ESPA and a luxuriously chic hotel, the spa focuses on holistic health and provides body treatments incorporating the finest organic ingredients derived exclusively from herbs, flowers, fruits, vegetables and oils. The skin care line is 98 percent natural and the oils are 100 percent natural.
ESPA at Vdara encourages you to arrive at least 45 minutes early for your service so you can enjoy the wet spa, calm your mind and prepare your body to receive the full benefit of your time with a spa therapist. Around treatment time, a spa attendant leads you to a co-ed area with lounge chairs, snacks, magazines and water.
One of the signature treatments created for ESPA at Vdara is On the Rocks, a 110-minute chakra-balancing treatment that truly relaxes you from head to toe with expert techniques and soothing scents. First you unwind with a warm foot soak, followed by body brushing and exfoliation. After a private shower you settle in for a calming body massage with volcanic stones, a light facial and a scalp massage. Perfect for those who don’t mind a little heat, the smooth volcanic stones melt away every last bit of muscle tension.
ESPA also offers a variety of other body treatments, massages and facials including pre-natal services and services for men. After your service, you may also luxuriate in the meditation lounge, which features comfortable reclining chairs and a bubbling water feature.
Downstairs, the full-service salon offers professional hair design, makeup artistry and luxurious spa manicures and pedicures. The spa boutique includes wellness books, apparel, hair care and ESPA products. For those who want to work up a sweat, the spa offers a fitness center featuring a variety of cardio equipment with personal entertainment centers, cardio machines and free weights.
