Having opened at Las Vegas' City Center in December 2010 this is one of the newest spas on offer and is the place to be for young people coming to town.
Inspired by the desert, the décor is minimal to get that bare and dry feel. Natural walls mirror canyons, while there are veins of silver throughout. The ceilings mirror nights lit by moon and stars.
Long, dramatic hallways lead to a serenity lounge where falling waters are heard and calm settles in the atmosphere.
On the Menu:
Sahra Hammam Massage,
50/80 minutes | $150/$225
The Treatment: This treatment introduced Turkish, Swedish, Thai and Shiatsu for an ideal blend of modalities. Although the description sounds busy, it was so relaxing I actually managed to fall asleep and had to be woken up by my masseuse at the end. Tell your therapist about your problem areas for a customized experience.
The Result: All my mental and physical tensions were relieved as my therapist worked away at knots in my body. Unlike many standardized treatments which follow formulaic methods, I left feeling listened to and with my needs taken care of. My skin even felt softer and more conditioned after using their massage oils.
