It goes without saying that Ukranian model and actress Oleksandra Nikolayenko-Ruffin knows a thing or two about beauty. But the 2004 Miss Ukraine Universe winner is also the brains behind her self-named spa, a tranquil and luxurious facility that earned a five-diamond rating from The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. Housed inside the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, the wellness sanctuary pampers guests with a massive menu of services that enhances everything from skin and body to scalp, hair, and nails. Facials are enhanced with hydrating botanical extracts and ingredients such as pumpkin pulp or papaya enzymes, which may cause pores to ask for second helpings. Six Davines Natural Tech hair treatments perform a spectrum of good deeds for scalps and manes, from softening damaged hair with silk proteins to excavating strands sequestered beneath chlorine and hard-water deposits.
Marble tile accents the walls of the spa, where cushy recliners congregate with other upholstered furniture inside separate lounges for men and women. Visitors to the spa typically check in at least 30 minutes early so they may change or cartwheel into a robe and sandals and warm up in the steam room, sauna, or whirlpool.
