It is just as easy, and sometimes if not more relaxing, to enjoy a day at the spa without having to mess with traffic and tourists up and down Las Vegas Boulevard. Instead, envision yourself in a quiet spa off the Las Vegas Strip, surrounded by locals, and the occasional business traveller. Know what the locals know and explore one of these top spas off the Las Vegas Strip. If you are a local, then make sure you are privy to the discounts and specials offered by most of these locations during the week. Some places like Costa del Sur, offer discounts for locals every day of the week, including discounts on their products as well.
Off the Strip
Spa Aquae at J.W. Marriott Las Vegas Resort and Spa is a hidden oasis off the Las Vegas Strip in the residential suburbia of Summerlin.
