An Oasis Opens in Vegas

    Ancient takes a contemporary twist at the Palms Place Hotel and Spa in Las Vegas. Here, the hotel’s 50,000-square-foot Drift Spa offers a modern, lavish—and coed—hammam (a Turkish bathhouse) that contains an oversized heated stone slab at its golden-hue core. Guests can lie or sit while inhaling aromatic, ambient steam for cleansing and renewal. A hot pool with underwater-jetted beds, a cool dip pool with a waterfall, and outdoor garden rinse showers provide in-between and finishing touches. The spa also provides more traditional treatments, such as hot-stone massage, ashiatsu massage, herbology, aromatherapy, and bio-energetic medicine. (866.942.7773, www.palmsplace.com)
