It may not be the largest spa in Las Vegas, but re:lax spa at Aliante Casino + Hotel goes a long way toward ensuring you a chance to renew, recharge and revive.
Located on the second floor of the hotel tower, the intimate boutique spa incorporates natural design elements from the hotel's gorgeous sunlit lobby, allowing a flawless transition into pure relaxation. As you enter the spa, a trickling water feature behind the check-in desk immediately puts your mind at ease. Stone and wood touches juxtaposed with metal fixtures and multiple textures offer a modern yet natural feel.
After checking in, men and women are invited to lounge in separate serene quiet areas. Put your feet up in a comfy chair, read a magazine or indulge in an array of healthy snacks and juices until it's time for your treatment. Both sides have showers with shampoo, conditioner and body wash, private toilets, lockers and accessories such as toothbrushes and combs.The men's side also features a steam room.
The spa has eight well-sized treatment rooms, including a fairly large couples treatment room, and a full menu of facial, full body and massage therapies as well as manicure, pedicure and waxing services. In a dry climate like that of Las Vegas, the hydrating facial can't be missed. Utilizing rich and nourishing products for deep moisturizing, the 50-minute treatment is like a big drink of water for your skin. For full body revitalization, try the 80-minute Green Tea Wrap. You will receive complete exfoliation, followed by a metabolism-enhancing green tea, seaweed and ginger weed mask and an aromatherapy lotion.
If you fall in love with a product used during one of your services, chances are you can take it home with you too. The spa sells the all-natural products as well as an array of body scrubs, lip balms, after-bath lotions and other skin care products.
Spa guests may also access the hotel's fitness center, located just down the hall. With a wide array of exercise equipment, the large fitness center overlooks the pool and offers a lovely view of the distant Las Vegas Strip.
