Las Vegas: Bright lights. Long nights. Sound familiar? Rejuvenation isn’t the first thing to come to mind when you’re on the strip, but on a recent trip, I found that Sin City has a bit more to offer in the wellness department than what I had originally thought.

The luxurious Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas is quite something to behold and from what I had heard, the spa’s authentic, Turkish hammam is the highlight of the 27,000-square facility. On a recent visit to the spa at Mandarin Oriental, I knew I had to give it a try.
Unlike many of today’s spa treatments, hammam was historically experienced in the company of others or what we now call “social spa-ing.” The Spa at Mandarin Oriental can accommodate groups of five of your closest friends with a hammam party in the comfort of this private treatment area. It’s also great for bridal parties.
Taking it slow and enjoying simple tranquility aren’t what most think of when it comes to Las Vegas, but some of the most fun to be had in the desert metropolis has nothing to do with blackjack, buffets or Cirque du Soleil. No, Vegas isn’t just for the slots anymore. Luxury spa-ing is making a name for itself in the city where indulgence and decadence reign supreme.
If you are a spa enthusiast and will be in Vegas this weekend (or if you live in town), here’s your chance to experience pampering and wellness, while never repeating the same treatment and never breaking the bank!
