It's easy to feel like an emperor at either of Imperial Health Spa's posh locations. Each one boasts more than 30,000 square feet of space adorned with Romanesque columns and arches. There, guests can luxuriate in four Korean-style saunas, each one tapping into natural elements to evoke its own peaceful atmosphere. The salt brick sauna, for example, helps visitors to shed harmful toxins, while the red clay room helps boost blood circulation and expel pollutants from the skin. Between rooms, guests can refresh themselves with a game of Marco Polo in the massaging jacuzzi tubs or book professional spa services such as facials and body scrubs.
Kids can’t be expected to care about their health when video games, cartoons, and unhealthy snacks are vying for their attention. That’s why the adult leaders of the Memorial Health Foundation devised a plan to get kids excited about health: HealthWorks! Kids’ Museum. Born of the founders’ desire to foster a healthier current and future community, the museum appeals to youngsters through educational forms of entertainment. Its exhibits incorporate amplified versions of many of kids’ favorite pastimes, including a life-sized rendition of Operation and numerous computer games. A rock-climbing wall and tree house with a slide encourage kids to learn through movement, which is exactly how adults learn how to escape charging bulls. Youngsters can explore the space with their families or partake in programs such as children's camps.
As its name implies, The Foot Lounge specializes in one thing: pampering feet with an array of indulgent spa services. The lounge's signature reflexology treatments ease pent-up stress as a therapist applies gentle pressure to epicenters of tension. As an added bonus, every reflexology session includes a soak in a foot bath loaded with 12 different kinds of therapeutic herbs. The luxuriant benefits of these treatments can also be accentuated by additional spa services, such as a sea salt foot scrub or the application of heated basalt stones, which are plucked from only the most relaxed of Hawaiian volcanoes.
Outside, fountains pulse, bright lights shine, and sidewalks remain crowded well into the night. But inside the Spa and Salon at the Golden Nugget, classical decor and full-body spa services keep the outside world at bay. The sunny atrium, ringed with columns and draped white curtains, cocoons clients with an atmosphere that BestOfVegas.com says, "evokes class, elegance, and luxury." Within the spa, aestheticians perform massages or body treatments with organic royal honey or seaweed that go hand-in-hand with salon services to craft a knockout nighttime look. Beyond the beautifying treatment rooms, clients can jog, run, or endlessly summersault on Cybex cardiovascular machines poised above the hotel's shark tank.
