Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian

Posted: Feb. 11th, 2009  |  By Katherine Bond

Luxury Spas: Larger than life-that's the vibe of Vegas.  On my last trip to Sin City, life felt beyond grand at the newly renovated Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian and Palazzo Hotel.  Nestled between the hotels, a few floors above the bustling casinos and opulent lobbies, Canyon Ranch is just massive-a serene, secret city where calm attendants and happy guests glide through the Spa Treatment Boutique, Canyon Ranch Café, and numerous "experience spaces." Frankly, I could have stayed a day in each one of those experience rooms.  The Wave Room, a co-ed domed room imitating the rhythm of crashing waves, was one of my favorites, as well as the Experiential Rains, where one can feel the thunder of a "Caribbean Storm" or "Tropical Rain."  Or if you're in the mood for something icy, one can play in the "Snow Cave," where snow falls lightly from the sky.  True to Vegas style, who needs to travel the world when it's all right there on the Strip?  Or in Canyon Ranch's case, all in one fabulous facility.

Once I sampled sea salt to snow flakes, it was time for my treatment:  The Absolute Custom Facial.  Like most women, I don't have a single "type" of skin-I have dry areas, oily areas, little imperfections, some wrinkles, etc, and I was delighted that this 80 minute facial would be customized by a pro esthetician; a charming British lady with flawless skin, who would take the time to map my whole face.  I'm not sure exactly what happened during those 80 minutes of bliss, but I do know my esthetician worked meticulously with the high-tech Clarisonic skin care brush, a sonic contraption that literally vibrates out residue and build-up deep within your skin.  It was painless and effective.  I know my skin was massaged and caressed with some of the spa's finest products, and I was fretting thinking how I would remember each serum, moisturizer or whatnot.  Canyon Ranch, however, doesn't forget its guests-my esthetician presented me with a whole run down of the 10 or so products she used just for me while escorting me back to the Locker rooms. 

Bottomline:  The Strip offers dozens of resort/hotel spas, and I've been to several.  Canyon Ranch takes the trophy though for its size, luxury, exotic experiences, and unending services to select from.  Next time I'm back in Vegas, I'll be sure to make a stop at the Ranch.
