Spa & Salon Vdara is an 18,000-square-foot, two-level spa, salon and fitness center that celebrates the calming power of water. The spa presents a thoughtfully orchestrated journey, personalized to maximize each guest’s experience.

Committed to sustainable luxury, Spa & Salon Vdara is the first Las Vegas spa in the Green Spa Network and only works with retail partners that share its concern for the environment.

SPA ELEMENTS
Design
• Guests have easy access to Spa & Salon Vdara; the elevator opens directly into the spa reception area on the second level of the hotel. As guests enter, they are welcomed by a two-story waterfall comprised of shimmering strings of beads that glisten as water cascades down them into the reflective pool below. Sapele wood floors with mink marble and river-stone floor accents create a sleek look throughout the space.
• Each level of the spa expresses a distinct atmosphere laced with luxury. The first level is a light, social space where patrons can mingle in the main reception lobby, enter the fitness center and salon, browse the spa boutique or enjoy a nutritious smoothie at the Smoothie Bar. The wellness spa on the second level inspires a calm and soothing energy.
Wellness Spa
• Spa & Salon Vdara’s wellness spa features 11 private treatment rooms, men's and women's retreats, and serene lounges. As guests relax in their respective retreats, they can unwind with a selection of herbal teas and apothecary-infused water, and enjoy redwood saunas and eucalyptus steam rooms. Intimate lounges feature inviting soaking tubs and dramatic circular waterfalls that spill over into the pools of water.
• The Relaxation Lounge and Meditation Lounge each provide quiet getaways where guests can unwind amongst soothing water features and lighting. In the Meditation Lounge, a metallic mosaic sheathed in iridescent tones illuminates a curtain of water that flows behind a candlelit ledge.

Spa Treatments
• Treatments are both classic and creative with a focus on holistic health and incorporate high-grade and organic ingredients derived from fruits, herbs, flowers, vegetables and oils. The spa menu is comprised of a variety of massages, body treatments and skin care services.
• Spa & Salon Vdara is the first resort spa in Las Vegas to launch Dr. Obagi's new line, ZO Skin Health, for facial services and home care. The philosophy of this line is to create change at the cellular level, to re-energize aging skin and constantly stimulate cellular function by saturating skin with stabilized retinol, advanced peptides and powerful antioxidants.
• Also featured at Spa & Salon Vdara, Naturopathica Holistic Health’s signature products inspire healthy lifestyles through innovative natural products. The products contain no petroleum-based ingredients, artificial dyes or fragrances and all are fortified with the highest-quality therapeutic essential oils and herbs.
