Qua Spa - Not Up to Hype December 10, 2009 | 112 of 183 people found this review helpful
I had read several reviews about the Qua Spa Las Vegas and was looking forward to trying it. The idea of Roman baths and the photos looked great. My husband and I decided to go there on our recent visit. He chose the day pass and I booked a $99 massage special.
We entered the spa men and women separate. The spa's theme of water is everywhere. The rock decor is a bit cold and no natural light so I felt a bit claustrophobic. I was greeted by the staff and showed to my locker with robe inside. The locker room is a bit small for such a large spa. I did love the robe sauna where I could leave my robe to warm while I was using the baths.
One room has elevated baths that you see in the photos with the rain shower in the middle. A large bath is body temperature with the two smaller baths, one is very hot and the other a cold plunge. Heated stone seats provide a nice place to rest. The room is loud with the sound of the bubbling waters.
From there I went to the back area which has another round hot tub and the sauna, steam and arctic room. The arctic room is a cold room with foam that comes out to simulate snow. The sound of foam fan is a bit loud but overall enjoyed it.
The sauna and steam are like anywhere else. I was taken to the laconium room to wait for my therapist. It's a bit like a round, mosiac tomb. While there over the intercom, I heard something about a firm alarm test. Next thing the fire alarm goes off and the strobe fire alarm light starts flashing. I had to stand outside the room as I felt as if I was in a disco. The strobe light continued as I was lead to my treatment room. Finally, it was shut off but as a serious spa goer, I couldn't believe they couldn't test the alarm another time or give us a heads up.
The treatment rooms are simple and my massage was good. I would have liked the therapis to ask about what pressure I preferred. Afterwards was going to go back to the sauna and cold room but was told I couldn't go back there for the moment as the maintenance man was back there. By then, I needed to head out to meet my hubby for lunch.
Overall, my experience was average and probably will not go back again the next time we are in Vegas.I would visit this business again? No
