The hotel scene in Vegas is one we always keep our eye on. Frequent celeb sightings, parties at Hooters, jock jam hotels, crazy hotel concepts, design hotels, you name it.

But the New York Post reminds us to get back to basics by remembering that Las Vegas can be a place to relax, be with nature, and revive. This will take some strength to steer-clear of most areas in the city, but we suppose they're right. Vegas is surrounded by natural beauty and hotels are stocked with some of the world's best spas designed to help us forget not only our troubles, but the world around us.

If you're not willing to compromise location and have big bucks to throw around, the spa at Wynn Las Vegasis beyond big:

Its busy spa is more than double the size of the Bathhouse at 35,000 square feet, but open to hotel guests only. For a reasonable $25, you get access to its gender-separated bath areas, with the usual plunge pool/whirlpool/eucalyptus steam/sauna combo.

We have to admit we like the guest-only policy. All too often are spas being over run by people stopping in for a quick facial and having nothing else to do with the hotel.

But you don't have to even make it to the spa for a treatment, in-room massages are also available at the Wynn. However, if it's the sake and rice body treatment you're after, you'll have to head to the spa itself to have your silk-cleaning and exfoliation done.

Re: Getting Rubbed at the Wynn Spa

I was actually slightly more impressed with the Mandalay Bay spa and fitness area then I was with the Wynn. When I visited the Wynn in December - the sauna was broken and no one noticed until I mentioned it twice around noon on a Friday. Also, there are no exterior windows - which might be nice for some people - but people watching is definitly a highlight in Vegas for me ...
