When traveling to Las Vegas or Atlantic City for business or pleasure, you will never find yourself lacking for activities. There are shows to attend, restaurants to try, shopping to be done, and of course, there’s the gambling. But when you’re in need of a break from all of the hustle and bustle of the casinos, there is yet another attraction: the spa!
Check out some of the SpaFinder’s favorite spas housed in and around casinos and hotels!
Westin Casuarina Las Vegas Hotel, Casino & Spa: Located near three of Las Vegas’s big convention centers (Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Sands Convention Center, and Las Vegas Convention Center), this hotel, casino, and spa is a perfect escape from business meetings and trade shows. Take a break to check out the Hibiscus Spa, equipped with state-of-the-art exercise facilities and a heated outdoor swimming pool!
Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas
