A trip to Las Vegas is typically associated with vice, not mental and physical wellness. In fact, those are probably the last two words that come to mind when you think of Sin City. Travelers to Vegas are usually there to drink, gamble, and dance the night away, and while these pastimes are undoubtedly fun, they’re not exactly relaxing. What you may not realize about Vegas, however, is that behind all the glitzy marquees and illuminated signs, Sin City is actually a great wellness destination. You might not think of the city as a “romantic couples retreat,” but its luxurious spas tell a different story. Whether you’re trying to smooth things over with your spouse after losing your retirement savings at blackjack, or celebrating an anniversary, do yourself — and your other half — a favor and book a couples massage in Las Vegas.
1. Sahra Spa and Hammam at The Cosmopolitan
Although The Cosmopolitan has a traditional in-house spa, complete with a mystical desert aesthetic, we recommend booking one of the hotel’s Sahra Spa penthouse suites for the ultimate (and intimate) relaxation experience. The suites include a private treatment area with two whirlpool tubs side by side, a steam room, shower, and vanity areas. It’s this cozy and romantic environment that really makes the couples massages here special. Lay side by side as you enjoy one of the spa’s range of options, including a Hawaiian Mana Lomi massage and Sahra Therapeutic Stone Massage.
2. The Spa at Wynn
The Wynn’s contemporary spa manages to be both cozy and luxurious, offering a number of menu options or personalized treatments. The Couple’s Tropical Journey is one of the spa’s romantic offerings, utilizing steamed coconut compresses and rich coconut oil to evoke a tropical island feel. Another is the Couple’s Dessert Stone Indulgence. The spa’s signature couples massage is the Good Luck Ritual, based on the five traditional Chinese elements. It blends a custom massage with a peppermint foot treatment, hand massage, and botanical scalp therapy. All of the Wynn’s massages can be enjoyed in a private Couples Suite.
3. The Spa at Vdara
The Vdara Hotel is inherently one of the most relaxing and stress-free places in Las Vegas, if only because it doesn’t have a casino. You might not be trying to decompress after a big financial loss, but you should still check out The Spa at Vdara, which offers a range of treatments from nails to massages. Couples can customize their own massage to suit their individual needs, with add-on options like hot stones, aromatherapy, and a collagen lip massage. Couples massages take place in a special Couples Room, and come with two glasses of champagne after the treatment.
4. Spa at The LINQ
The LINQ hotel spa has a special treatment package designed specifically for couples. It includes an 80-minute massage in a designated couples suite, with two treatment elevations of your choice. These elevations include a menu of customizable options: aromatherapy, exfoliating hand or foot treatment, revitalizing foot masques, back exfoliation, muscle pain soother, hot stone therapy, dermaplaning, and brightening eye treatment. Couples massages also come with a bottle of champagne and souvenir champagne flutes to bring home with you.
5. The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel
The Spa at Four Seasons Las Vegas features oversized couples suites (Spa Dual Suites) where you can enjoy customizable treatments for you and your significant other. You can choose from a range of massages, including a warm salt stone ritual, full body candle massage, and an exfoliating foot massage. Couples massages last between 50 and 100 minutes, and also come with a couples facial, chocolate-covered strawberries, and champagne. Also be sure to take advantage of the spa’s signature Essence of the Seasons — a collection of body treatments that change with the seasons.
6. Canyon Ranch Spa Club at the Venetian
Rather than just one or two couples massage options, like many spas, the Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian Hotel has an entire menu of couples massages. There’s a stone massage using essential oils, a deep tissue massage for a more intense rejuvenation, a couple’s retreat that includes a scalp massage, full-body exfoliation, and scented bath for two, and a seasonal massage incorporating the scents of the season. There’s even a prenatal massage designed for expecting parents.
7. Bellagio Spa and Salon
Defined by its natural aesthetic, mirroring the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Spa Bellagio offers some of the best spas in Las Vegas for couples. There are a range of spa packages tailored specifically for couples, varying only slightly in treatment time. All packages include a couples massage with either hot stones or aromatherapy, followed by a 50-minute dip in the spa’s Watsu Pool, a private shower, and time in a relaxation space with a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. The Escape Package offers 50-minute massages, the Serenity Package offers 80 minutes-massages, and the Tranquility Package includes 100-minute massages. Who are we kidding, though? It’s really all about the strawberries.
