Spa Profile: The Spa & Salon at Golden Nugget Las Vegas
Located within the heart of Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas, Golden Nugget Las Vegas is a world-renowned hotel that features 2,400 rooms and suites with a hip vintage ambiance. The property’s lagoon-style pool circles a three-story shark tank with a waterslide running through it. In addition to an award-winning casino and eleven restaurants, guests enjoy live entertainment by the hottest bands and singers in the Showroom.
For those seeking some rest and relaxation between all the excitement, The Spa & Salon at Golden Nugget Las Vegas offers an array of massages and facials, along with beauty treatments in the full-service salon and a state-of-the-art cardio and weight room. We chatted with Jeff Wescott, Spa and Salon Operations Manager at Golden Nugget Las Vegas, who shared insider tips, treatments to try, and more.
Why You’ll Love It: The Spa at the Golden Nugget is an intimate space. We are not a big box spa where a guest can become lost in the shuffle. Our staff is aware of our guests and available to render assistance or tranquility—whichever the guest desires. That intimacy and personalized assistance is what our guests love most.
Key Features: The Spa offers men’s and women’s steam/dry sauna and whirlpools. There are also relaxation lounges and locker rooms, a seating atrium, as well as full fitness facilities, a beauty salon, and nail lounge.
Bonus: The Spa offers a wide variety of services with specially selected wellness-centric enhancements designed to personally address our guests’ specific wellness needs. These enhancements are designed so our licensed professionals can deliver treatments customized to the needs of our guests and their current well-being.
Insider’s Tip: Wellness isn’t a once-a-year thing or special occasion, although those are great places to start your regimen or an off-and-on process. The wellness philosophy is a daily source of centering, relaxation, and mindful introspection. Massage and spa treatments are an integral part of our cultures awakening to the wellness philosophy. Begin your lifelong journey of wellness wherever you find yourself today. We offer a complimentary 60-minute Wellness Wednesday Yin Yoga/Guided Meditation class for our guests each Wednesday evening. (Schedules can vary, call for details.)
Snacks Served: In addition to fresh apples and bananas, we offer a multitude of delicious trail mix snacks. We also offer a different fruit-infused water daily. Las Vegas is loaded with cocktails and alcoholic beverages; we find that delivering more in the spa and wellness environment is a bit of overkill.
Splurge Treatment: We offer our 100-minute Illuminating Ritual, which involves a luxurious 24K Signature Facial and a Body Buff designed to leave the skin and body buffed and illuminated. This treatment is specifically designed to prepare the guest for his or her Las Vegas debut.
Insider’s Favorite: My personal favorites are constantly changing depending on my specific wellness needs. There are times that I will schedule a 50-minute Relaxation Massage and other times I’ll leave after an 80-minute Therapeutic Massage with cupping and sound therapy treatments, having forgotten completely the cares and concerns of two hours ago. Wellness is real, life-changing, and impactful. I highly encourage everyone to begin your practice immediately.
Unique Treatment: Our newest enhancement offerings bring an international flavor with a wellness twist. From Tibet, we offer a Singing Bowl Treatment designed to cleanse and align the body’s Qi. From China, we offer a cupping treatment designed to release the fascia tissue to alleviate pain and discomfort that the guest may not even be aware they have been carrying for years. We also offer a host of Reiki energy alignment treatments and sound therapy treatments. Consulting with our licensed professionals prior to your massage service will allow you to receive maximum results through our unique enhancement offerings.
Featured Products: We use the following brands in our services and offer them in retail for perfect home care: amika, [comfort zone], Knesko Skin, LALICIOUS, Moroccanoil, OM4 Organic Male, Schwarzkopf Professional, SkinCeuticals, and Sothys Paris. We will be debuting Smashbox Cosmetics in Fall 2019. We are a small and intimate spa, but we provide some of the most luxurious product experiences anywhere in the world.
