Las Vegas is known for many, many things as the entertainment capital of the world, but a few mainstays that are unique to Vegas (in sheer quantity) are buffets, casinos, and of course, luxury spas. Some of the most luxurious spas in the world can be found in Vegas and in a city that’s surrounded by the hot heat of the desert, what could be better than a spa that offers a flurry of snow as part of one of their treatments.
First off, the Fontainebleau has finally opened after 16 long years of delayed development, just in time for the 70th anniversary of the brand. The Fontainebleau, originally located in Miami and the set of iconic films like James Bond’s Goldfinger and Casino, decided to extend its reach into Las Vegas, premiering on the Strip earlier in December with a bang. Justin Timberlake performed and Post Malone will be performing during New Year’s Eve weekend.
Now, residents and Vegas visitors alike can stay at the Fontainebleau, the tallest resort in Las Vegas, and enjoy a little TLC at their luxurious spa, the perfect place for a day of pampering.
For the past few years, spas have been dipping their toes into the trend of snow treatments, after The Lodge at Woodloch in Hawley, Pennysvlania kicked the trend off with the opening of their snow room, where guests could relax in a frosty room after a dip in the warm spa.
At Fontainebleau, the same hot-cold style of treatment applies with the “Snow Shower” a 14 degrees Fahrenheit shower that dispenses cooling snowflakes on you in a room with heated floors, the perfect cooling sensation after a sauna.
The Qua’s Arctic Ice Room in Caesar’s Palace is another luxurious treatment offered and was the first of its kind here in Las Vegas. At a chilly 55 degrees Fahrenheit, sit and relax in a room where mint-infused snow falls from the ceiling year-round for a peaceful and relaxing afternoon that benefits your immune and circulatory systems.
Spas aren’t the only place to see snow fall in Las Vegas. As we gear up towards the holiday season, you may be wondering where to get your fix of snow in the Las Vegas area. Head to the Linq Promenade for their free Winter Parq event that includes music, holiday treats, and flurries of fake snow.
