I am the first to admit that I am not a fan of Las Vegas, but when I visited the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas last year, I was in heaven. Although the hotel is located in the metropolis known as CityCenter, I felt like I was a million miles away from the chaos from the Strip. From the soothing ambience to the relaxing music to the leisurely check-in at the 23rd-floor sky lobby, this seductive sanctuary is the opposite of what Vegas is known for. And now, international travelers staying at the hotel for five or more nights can relax even more, thanks to the complimentary Jet Lag Recovery Experience offered by the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas. Starting from the day of arrival, travel-weary guests will be able to unwind and enjoy the spa’s multiple water facilities, including the Vitality Pool, Experience Showers, and Herbal Steam Room. Guests are also invited to join in any of the twice-daily yoga and Pilates classes that take place in a studio overlooking the Strip. And to round out the package, spa-goers are treated to a 60-minute Oriental Essence massage tailored to their personal needs. With all these added perks without any added cost, the journey to Vegas sounds like a great idea, for once.
Many guests often wish they could bottle the relaxing and rejuvenating effects a spa visit has to offer. With that in mind Chiva-Som (Hua Hin, Thailand), one of the world’s leading destination spas, is now retailing its resort products for at-home use. Chiva-Som’s luxurious line of products incorporates traditional Asian healing ingredients with the latest skincare technologies. Staying dedicated to its holistic approach, the Chiva-Som line was created by experts combining aromatherapy, botany, chemistry, and perfumery. The products range from 95 to 100 percent pure and are free of parabens and other chemicals. Designed for both women and men, there are 12 skincare products, seven bodycare products, and five massage oils, all of which offer the same quality that guests have come to know and expect. Guests will look like they just stepped out of the spa without leaving the comfort of home.
