A Relaxing Las Vegas Vacation

Las Vegas is known for its glitz, glamour and fast-paced nightlife, but what about pure relaxation and bliss? Now you’re speaking my language! I’m more of a cucumbers-on-my-eyelids-hot-stone massage sort of girl, so I was looking for something a bit more tranquil than the hustle and bustle found on the Strip. I’m also a girl on a budget, and wanted to splurge without breaking the bank. With that said, you can probably imagine how happy I was to find the Las Vegas Hotel & Spa Packages by Red Rock Resort!

Named one of the Top 100 Resort Spas by the readers of Condé Nast and one of the top 3 spas in Las Vegas, Red Rock’s Spa is a desert oasis that will sweep you away to a serene paradise. With more than 35,000 square feet of luxurious space, the sprawling resort is just as big as it is beautiful.

My husband and I booked their Spa Relaxation Package, which included a one night stay and two spa treatments of our choice. The best part? It was under $300!  Throughout our stay, I was stunned by the incredible value and enamored with their first-class accommodations. Everything from the location to the decoration within our hotel room was perfect, and we were beyond excited to get away from our hectic work schedules, taking some time to simply relax.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the friendly hotel staff and whisked away to a plush hotel room (more like a suite!) to unpack and freshen up. The moment I stepped foot inside our room I knew that we were in for a treat. With eyes as wide as kids in a candy store, we were delighted by the sights and sounds of the resort. Everything from the pool to the restaurants, and the ceilings to the floors, shows that Red Rock was designed, rather than built.

They began our treatments by taking us on a tour of the spa.  Both of us were impressed by the atmosphere of the spa’s tranquil, yet modern luxury and quite pleased by the immaculately decorated surroundings and personable staff. The spa is filled with a palpable sense of relaxation and serenity. Even during the tour, I could feel my stress begin to melt away!

After a quick workout in the fitness center and a dip in the incredible pool, we jumped into the sauna then slipped into cozy robes and sandals before our treatments officially began. I chose the 50-minute classic facial, while my husband opted for the 50-minute Swedish massage. The gracious spa staff made us feel extremely welcome, instantly putting us both at ease. We were treated like royalty and the treatments were absolutely divine! My husband and I are now eagerly awaiting our next escape, and eyeing Red Rock’s adventure packages!
