Insider's Las Vegas: Best Bets: Private Practice

Offering a rare respite on the Strip, the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is refreshingly free of frills—an atmosphere in line with this exclusive non-gaming hotel’s philosophy. The spa’s therapists are among the best in the city, as are its treatments, which include Raindrop, a massage that entails drops of essential oils being applied to your back ($230 for 80 minutes). Spa Tapas treatments—brief foot and body massages with chilled lotions—are available poolside so you never have to get up from your chaise lounge on the deck, where ever-present attendants circle with Evian mist spray, cold towels, cucumber slices for your eyes, fresh fruit, and ice water. Compared with the new colossal luxury spas in town (Wynn Las Vegas has 45 treatment rooms, Bellagio 54, and the Canyon Ranch SpaClub at the Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino more than 150), the 16-room Spa at Four Seasons remains a sanctuary for those who do not wish to unwind en masse.
