From the Qua Baths & Spa menu at Caesar’s Palace: Bath Liqueur, Sleep Health, Hypnosis for Wellness, Raindrop Therapy (registered), Morning Dew, Banana Leaf Body Wrap (with incense), Dilo Wrap (oil from Fiji), Volcanic Clay Body Mask, Chai Tea Mud Mask, Ten-Second Tan, Dancing Waters, Niagara Falls, Sand & Foam, Poker Face (an anti aging facial), Arabian Knights Facial (with Arabian coffee), Couples Lunaception (fertility-heightening experience), Red Carpet Facial, Vino Veritas (with Chardonnay Grapes), and the Seven Sacred Pools Bath.
Jennifer Lynn, the very impressive spa director, has created a very unique and interesting menu and experience!
It’s my last day at the Virtuoso meeting at the Bellagio in Vegas and I decided to email Jennifer at the new Qua Baths & Spa at Caesar’s to see if Sallie and I might be able to come over for a tour that evening. Jennifer gave us a “hard hat” tour last year and we were anxious to see the results.
In typical Jennifer fashion, I hear back from someone within an hour. Alyssa has made all the arrangements and even booked us in to experience some of their new treatments – a Sleep Health Aromatherapy Massage with Hypnosis for me, and a Chakra Balancing treatment for Sallie. We were happy to accept!
The spa’s interior design is very pleasing and successful in taking the Caesar’s Palace over-the-top Roman theme into the spa with an understated and contemporary interpretation of Roman bathing. Photos show it better than I can describe so click through for a tour. The concept for the spa was equally effective as Jennifer pulled together a nice blend of sophistication, intimacy, pampering, wellness, uniqueness and a bit of “Vegas-ness” for a spa menu that is interesting to read. .
In addition to the interesting menu of treatments, she incorporated words and concepts such as:
Artisans (rather than spa therapists)
Robe Sauna (your robe stays warm while you are in the baths)
Tepidarium (rather than warm Jacuzzi)
Caldarium (rather than hot Jacuzzi)
Frigidarium (rather than cold plunge)
Laconium (rather than warm Sauna)
Artic Ice Rooms (falling snow, heated floors and benches)
Tea Program (Tea Sommelier in the relaxation lounges)
Crystal Body Art (Swarovski crystal art applied to the body)
Dream coach (interpretation Journey)
The best value? Book a 50 minute Swedish Massage and stay for several hours. They waive the $45 facility fee which entitles you to the fitness area (where the cardio bikes are in a circle to encourage their “social spa-ing concept), all the baths and thermal rooms, and a generous supply of amenities. Total price $140 which isn’t bad considering you can lose that at the blackjack table much more quickly and you surely won’t feel as buffed and polished when you leave.
