Spa at Encore
At a Glance
What is it?
A gorgeous and elegant 70,000 square-foot spa with a delightful Moroccan garden theme, dozens of treatment rooms, a fitness center, and much, much more.
Where is it?
At Encore Las Vegas on the North Strip.
Is it worth the cost?
Wow, it’s expensive here but no more expensive than any other high-end spa in town and this one has so much eye candy to look at that it seems like if you’re going to spend that kind of dough, doing it here might be a good idea.
Why should I go here?
Because the Zen minimalist approach to spa design bores you.
What else do I need to know?
The facility is open to the general public Monday through Thursday and they will do weekend appointments also if they are available.
What’s the bottom line?
An unforgettable spa experience.
I’m not really a spa kind of guy. I don’t like massages and while the idea of getting naked and letting strangers touch me is an interesting one in certain contexts, a spa treatment room is not one of them.
But spas are big business in Las Vegas and if you’re going to get pampered you’d have a hard time finding a more beautiful, more relaxing place to do it than at the Spa at Encore.
Encompassing nearly 70,000 square-feet and taking up most of the second floor footprint above the casino, the facility is stunning, eschewing the typical spa-minimalist décor and going for something much grander.
The lobby is a domed Moroccan garden of sorts, with a soaring ceiling emblazoned with subtle butterfly stencils, plush brocade couches, statuary, and metal stamped floor lamps. It’s impressive in ways that no other spa I’ve visited is.
Men’s and women’s dressing areas include locker facilities, showers, Jacuzzi and dipping tubs, wet and dry saunas, and a relaxation room with low lighting and comfortable divans.
The treatment room area is another beautiful journey, with a walkway lined by more Moroccan lamps, rocks, and fountains. There are dozens of well-equipped treatment rooms offering everything from simple facials to aromatherapy to massage and much more.
None of it is cheap but it is competitive with other high-end spas in town.
There’s also a full salon with a wall of windows looking out over the pool area and a full salon store.
The gorgeous facility, long list of offerings, and patient staff make this one of the best spas in town.
