In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective beautifying treatment with today's Groupon: for $59, you get admission to a Wednesday night spa party with four mini services at Ritual Salon and Spa (a $120 value). This offer is valid at the Ritual locations on Rampart Boulevard or Eastern Avenue.
Ritual, the Las Vegas Review-Journal's staff pick for Best Spa in 2009, carves a restful oasis out of busy calendars with its Wednesday night spa parties. During the four-hour soiree, guests promenade through the salon's decorated corridors, cosseting their features with a choice of four mini spa services from Ritual's six-item menu. Rejuvenate lazing locks with a refreshing peppermint scalp treatment, or indulge feet in an island-style coddling with a coconut foot scrub including hot-towel service and a toe-conducted steel-drum concert. Geared toward upper digits, mini manicures wrangle renegade cuticles and polish newly filed nails, and mini facials or shoulder massages melt away stress-borne discomfort.
Guests pair pampering with tasty comestibles, noshing on light snacks and a cocktail as Ritual’s technicians ply their revivifying trade. Shindigs unfold in the spa’s stunningly modern space, which wows revelers with rich crimson walls, elegant wood accents, and tapestries depicting famous aestheticians throughout history.
Ritual Salon and Spa
Named the staff pick for the Best Spa in Las Vegas 2009 and 2012 by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Ritual Salon and Spa leads bodies on a tour of relaxation surrounded by glamorous '70s-style decor. At the Green Valley location, vermilion walls and miniature Buddha statues glow under retro textured lamps, and the Summerlin location melds soothing green and earth tones with rich brocade and upholstery. If the spas feel like lounges, it's no mistake: the staffers regularly host a Wednesday girls' night out stocked with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and mini spa treatments. At each location, customized facials pamper visages with Éminence Organics products, and massages attack stress with Swedish strokes enhanced by the warmth of heated stones and the soothing melodies of Viking battle hymns.
