Mandara Spa at Harrahs Cherokee Casino Resort


Within the Great Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, visitors will discover a sense of serene mysticism at Mandara Spa, part of the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort, an enterprise of the Cherokee Nation’s eastern band. In an 18,000-square-foot haven, spa-goers will relax with Balinese-inspired spa treatments, including signature Mandara rituals like the Balinese massage, in a modern, Asian-designed space adorned with carved wooden decor, sleek granite, and vibrant accents. Outside of the spa, guests can try their luck at the 150,000-square-foot casino, take in a musical performance at the Event Center, or indulge in all the nature adventures that the lush hills of North Carolina has to offer.

Facilities & Amenities

The 18,000-square-foot Mandara Spa at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort resides over two floors: The first level hosts men’s and women’s locker areas with showers, saunas, and Jacuzzis, along with a creekside, coed relaxation lounge and two couple’s suites with a dual bath; on the second level, a reception area leads to a hair and nail salon.

The spa menu is Balinese inspired, featuring both signature Elemis and Mandara skin-care and body treatments. Gentlemen spa-goers can unwind with services like the Mountain Escape for Men—a combination of a deep-tissue massage and Elemis Skin IQ Facial—and mother-daughter duos and romantics can reserve the Sacred Feather Ritual for Two, incorporating a side-by-side massage, hydrotherapy bath, and champagne toast with chocolates. Trademark therapies include the Lavender Healing Repair Facial and Juniper Berry and Algae Detox, using herbs from the Native American Pharmacopeia.

When guests aren’t treating themselves to Mandara Spa services, they can head to the 150,000-square-foot casino.
