The Spa at Encore, which earned five stars from Forbes, stands out among the many pampering options in town. Encore’s design by Todd-Avery Lenahan is a 61,000-square-foot space boasting 37 treatment rooms, including four double-occupancy suites and 14 naturally lit garden villas. Rich golden tones, remarkable tapestries and a warm color palette set the tone.
The atriumlike lobby offers a collection of sculpture, fabric and objets d’art from destinations including Asia, Africa and Europe. The spa also features relaxation lounges, hot and cold plunge pools, steam rooms and experience showers. Encore’s most stunning environment is the Tranquility Hallway, lit by Moroccan lanterns and featuring its Golden Buddha.
One of the signature services is the Encore Escape, a 105-minute massage using Thai poultice bags, heated stones and Hawaiian lomi-lomi techniques that ends with a scalp massage using Indian Shirodhara oil treatment ($375). Encore’s most popular treatment remains the Good Luck Ritual, based on the five Chinese elements and designed to encourage happiness, luck and prosperity using customized massage techniques (105 minutes for $375). Travelers spending their day exploring the Strip benefit from the Encore Foot Surrender (50 minutes for $180 or 80 minutes for $280).
