Bond with your boo: The best Vegas spas for Valentine’s Day

Young couple relaxing in the spa

We know — you love your boo. And as much as heart-shaped pendants, a dozen roses and chocolate Hershey’s Kisses sweep us off our feet, we want to feel good from the inside out. Nothing is better than treating your mind, body and soul with a relaxing spa service. We vote this is the best way to express your love for each other.

You’re in luck: If you’re traveling with your sweetie, you can experience the best spas in Las Vegas for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy, you lovebirds!

Drift Spa, Palms Place

At Palms Place, you can drift away, drift away, drift away to Drift Spa. These swoon-worthy Valentine’s Day specials are available through the end of February. Toast your bodies to the spa’s 50-minute champagne couple’s massage, which incorporates a champagne-scented lotion. Hey, we’ll cheers to that.

Why bother with chocolate-covered fruits when you can be slathered in sweet goodness? Drift spa offers a 50-minute chocolate raspberry-scented lotion massage. You two can also take your fruity spa day to the next level with the 80-minute Berries & Bubbly manicure and pedicure. The service uses a raspberry sugar scrub to exfoliate your hands and feet, followed by marshmallow body butter to sooth and hydrate your skin. Plus, you’ll enjoy a free glass of champagne. (We’re digging the champagne theme here.)

Cheers! All smiles here. We owe it to ourselves to get pampered this Valentine’s Day weekend.

Unwind together

Most spas have separate men’s and women’s relaxation lounges. That’s fine, but what if you want to chill and unwind with your sweetie the entire time? These spas are co-ed and you guys have the option of relaxing together:

  • Reliquary Spa at Hard Rock: You can hang out together in the co-ed Roman bathhouse. Make sure to bring your swimsuits so you can take a dip together in the indoor pool.
  • Ciel Spa at SLS: They have intimate relaxation nooks where you can draw the curtain and feel like you have the spa all to yourself. Each nook has two seats with accompanying ottomans. We love how they serve complimentary chocolate chip cookies — something you don’t typically find in a spa.
  • Canyon Ranch SpaClub at Venetian & Palazzo: The Rasul chamber is a popular choice for couples. Here’s a quick lesson: You’ll be in a steam room (that fits two) and have the chance to massage therapeutic mud on each other. One nice touch is the dim lighting and tiny lights on the chamber’s ceiling.
  • ESPA at Vdara: After your service, ESPA has a tranquil relaxation room with dim lighting, as well as a trickling waterfall. Stretch out on a comfy lounge chair and wrap yourself up in a soft teddy bear-like blanket. (Good night, everybody!)
  • The spa at The LINQ: Depending on availability, squeeze in an extra 45 minutes to experience its Himalayan salt therapy cave. Natural salt caves are said to aid congestion, asthma and sinus issues. You’ll have to call in advance (702-794-3242) to book your time.
  • Costa del Sur spa at South Point: The spacious relaxation room is co-ed and even has a TV (on the lowest volume to keep its peaceful vibe). You can also order breakfast, salads, wraps, sandwiches and beverages. And by beverages, we mean champagne, Bloody Mary cocktails and mimosas. We can make this spa trip an all day thing.

Make the most of your Vegas Valentine’s weekend, try some unique and funny Valentine’s Day activities or check out the rest of our spas.


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
