Qua Baths & Spa - Las Vegas, Nevada
Known as one of the finest spas in Vegas, Qua Baths & Spa at Caesar's Palace has it all: even an "ice room" where you can make it snow at the push of a button after your hot bath or other heat treatment. One of the goals at Qua Baths & Spa was to bring nature indoors, and they achieve that goal in spades. Traditional Japanese-style baths, every type of massage under the sun, a Swarovski crystal body art room...the decadence and pampering know no bounds here. Another big plus is the design makes it private, with an exclusive feel...you don't have to amble awkwardly past other hotel guests, restaurant visitors, or casino-goers in your robe as you make your way to the 55,000-square foot spa area.
