Qua Baths & Spa
In 2005, Qua introduced the concept of the super-spa to Vegas, with its then-unheard-of 50,000-square-foot area in Caesars Palace. It remains one of the best spas on the Strip, with its cascading waterfalls, three Roman baths, and an Arctic Ice Room (push a button and it snows). It’s also one of the best spas for those seeking a bit of exclusivity (read: you don’t want to cross a casino floor in your bathrobe). Within Augustus tower, it shares exclusive real estate with Restaurant Guy Savoy, and only guests of the tower and these two venues may valet their cars here. Since Nobu Hotel opened its boutique hotel inside Caesars, some of the loveliest treatments are from the exclusive Nobu menu, approved by Chef Matsuhisa himself (you’ll have to ask for that one; it doesn’t appear in the regular spa menu). Book the 90-minute Nagomi Ritual, which begins with a traditional Japanese footbath, includes a full-body massage that incorporates Thai, Balinese and shiatsu massage, and ends in a facial.
