Las Vegas spas offer ‘royal’ treatment

Diamonds in Vegas aren’t only on the playing cards — sometimes they’re also in the spa treatments. Many Las Vegas spas offer their guests serene services infused with luxurious offerings such as diamonds, gemstones, champagne and gold.

Here are five ways you can enjoy the “royal” treatment the next time you visit a Las Vegas spa.

1. A diamond in the rough

Spas in Vegas have discovered yet another reason why diamonds are a girl’s best friend. In addition to looking great on your ring finger, they can amplify your energy and ease tension.

According to the Spa at Trump, diamonds have been used since ancient times to balance chakras and provide clarity, inspiration and enlightenment. The spa’s 90-minute Balancing Diamonds Massage ($300) uses oils infused with diamonds and botanical essences to create the ultimate indulgence.

Eliminate the effects of stress with a 90-minute Diamond Magnetic Lift Body Treatment (from $285) at the Spa at Mandarin Oriental. This luxurious experience balances the chakras with gems and diamond dust, and is even said to make your skin look younger.

2. You are such a gem

Brighten your skin with fine gems and botanicals blended in luxurious oils and creams during the 50- or 80-minute Gemstone Facial (from $195) at the Spa at Aria. Skin is renewed with a special serum rich in micronized diamonds and extract of pure orchid, plus a lift-off masque, rich in exotic rose and peony extracts.

In addition to the diamond massage mentioned above, Spa at Trump  also offers a Purifying Emeralds Massage with emerald-infused oil, a Revitalizing Rubies Massage with ruby-infused oil and a Calming Sapphires Massage with (you guessed it) sapphire-infused oil. The exclusive massages are 90 minutes and cost $300.

3. Put some bling on it

Bedazzle yourself with a 60-minute Swarovski Crystal Body Art Treatment (from $130) at Qua Spa at Caesars Palace. Following a Vichy shower, scrub and light lotion application, you’ll enter the spa’s Crystal Body Art Room where a crystal artist will decorate your skin with Swarovski crystals in the design of your choice. Shine on sisters!

4. Champagne dreams

Give your fingers and toes a reason to celebrate when you pop the cork on a fizzy 25-, 50- or 80-minute Champagne Dream Manicure and Pedicure (from $28) at Spa Aquae at JW Marriott, including a champagne soak, sweet cream scrub and whoopie shea butter cream massage.

5. Golden girls

Luxuriate in the beauty and benefits of 24-karat gold during the Golden Veil Facial at the Grand Spa at MGM Grand. A gold-flecked peel encourages cellular renewal while golden mineral powder firms and revitalizes your glow of youth.

The Grand Spa’s 50-minute Golden Cinnamon Pedicure immerses tired feet into a bath of cinnamon sparkling soak. Toenails are painted to perfection in one of OPI’s signature winter colors then finished off with a delicate dusting of golden powder that will leave toes shimmering for the holidays.

Enhance your inner glow with golden mineral powders during the 50-minute 18-Carat Facial (from $190) at Canyon Ranch SpaClub at Venetian and Palazzo. This anti-aging treatment leaves you feeling as good as gold.
