A new spa that has just opened in Las Vegas is in the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which is located at the entrance of CityCenter.  This 47-story hotel is special because although it is in the center of the gambling world, it is a non-gaming hotel that will allow you to be at the center of the action without being surrounded by a casino. The hotel itself brings spectacular accommodations, superlative dining, and an unparalleled spa. The hotel and spa were designed by the award-winning architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox, with contemporary interior design by Adam D. Tihany.

The two-level, 27,000-square-foot Spa and Pool at Mandarin Oriental are located on the sixth and seventh floors. The spa provides a tranquil environment and a completely holistic experience based on the union of modern techniques and Eastern traditions.  The spa has 17 treatment rooms, multiple relaxation and water experiences, an expansive Fitness Center and dedicated yoga studio. The building itself is also designed to withstand the heat of the desert in a sustainable manner by reducing solar heat gain and through conserving energy. The façade system of the hotel accounts for about 9 percent of the building’s total energy savings, while the interior of the hotel and spa use sustainable products and practices to conserve water and energy in a manner that doesn’t affect your luxurious experience .

People Flock to Spa Websites On Cyber Monday

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Cyber Monday has become more and more popular for retailers over the past few years. (Cyber Monday is the equivalent of Black Friday for online stores.) This year spas with good websites reaped the benefits from this event, especially Bella Sante Day Spas who reported today that “Cyber Monday Website traffic rose 76% and Cyber Monday Internet sales rose 59%” – said Tiffany Amorosino, COO of Bella Sante. While the Washington Post reported Cyber Monday traffic increased nationally only 8%, perhaps this year people were feeling that in order to make up for a tough year spa services and products will make an excellent gift. Many people are also flocking to spas to treat themselves or to purchase a gift for another because they realize that giving a gift that provides relaxation and pampering will do more good than material goods.

Gift Card

The spa industry has come a long way in the past decade or so, especially when you look at the investment that spas have put into their websites. Now spa websites are well positioned on the Web, and are able to capitalize on events like Cyber Monday. Gift certificates and spa products are now offered online by many spas as website technology continues to improve across the spa industry. By providing the same excellent service through their websites that they give their spa-goers in person, spas have been able to reap the benefits from these efforts.
