The Venetian’s Canyon Ranch SpaClub
Venetian is big on big. It has the biggest standard rooms, some of the biggest chefs around, and aims to be the biggest hotel in the world. So naturally, it has the biggest health club, spa and salon in town, and one with the biggest name in the business: Canyon Ranch. The whole facility is a stand-alone operation at one end of the behemoth hotel, taking up 60,000 square feet — triple the space of most serious spas in town. The spa and fitness club that hails from the celebrity-packed resort in Tucson delivers the goods, including fitness classes, equipment and the most unique offering of health treatments and pampering to be found in one spot. Here you’ll find the only Rasul chamber in town, where you’ll sit on a tile throne like a Moroccan king while steam pours in all around you, soft lights twinkle on the chamber ceiling to give you that 1001 nights effect and you can choose among four kinds of mineral laden mud to neutralize whatever ails. Or you may climb a 40-foot rock wall, take a spinning class, get an acupuncture treatment or have your fat analyzed. No need to trek out to Tucson to indulge in this wellness retreat. It’s the best way to detoxify in Vegas. Canyon Ranch Club at the Venetian, 702-733-5000.
