The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas  


 The Spa at Mandarin Oriental may sound like a dream, but what I’m about to tell you is real life. My entire body is covered in diamonds. Yes, DIAMONDS! An exclusive fine-grain diamond and iron oxide scrub is applied to my body to exfoliate and do what diamonds do best…make a girl smile.

Powerful magnets are then dragged across my body, attracting and lifting up the iron oxide in the process. The energetics of these two super minerals are meant to clear the body from stress and harmful electromagnetic pollution emitted by computers, cellphones, televisions and electronics.

This Diamond Magnetic Lift Body Treatment’s ability to raise my vibration was a tangible feeling. I felt high off crystalline vibrations and strong magnetics taking detox to the next level by drawing, what felt like tons of toxins from the body. The cleansing didn’t just affect the physical body either, but in my experience moved beyond to purge the body from negative feelings and unresolved emotions too.

Next, I was directed to a shower in my treatment room that gave the sensation of a thousand shower heads directed at me from every angle. Massaging and rinsing off any remnants left behind from the unique scrub.

I had to remind myself that a massage was next or I would have stayed there all day.

The massage on my now baby soft skin took me beyond space and time to the land of nod, where I felt myself drifting back and forth from dreaming to waking consciousness – of which both felt like heaven.

This treatment is only the beginning of a day straight off my vision board.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas is a modern day fairytale land. Check out this gorgeous hammam, perfect for a bridal shower or a spacation with the girls.


The heated floating pool features lounge chairs in the water to induce total relaxation.


Walk a short distance and you’ll find their tepidarium or underfloor heating system and reclined seating to bring your body back to its perfect warmth. The spa facilities here are unparalleled and truly takes the cake for a healing getaway experience.


The two-level awe inspiring spa is not the only part of this place that made me swoon.

The Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas is everything you’d expect from the luxury chain, a sophisticated, asian-inspired modern sanctuary with phenomenal hospitality. This high-rise dream hotel is located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip and oozes elegance and comfort.


A truly extraordinary urban resort destination, the 47-story, (and thank goodness) non-gaming hotel has awesome accommodations, top-notch service, superlative dining, and of course their dreamy spa.

392 spacious and luxurious rooms and suites and 225 residences are located in this impressive hotel. The lovely “Sky Lobby” brings a stunning arrival experience with sparkling views of the Las Vegas skyline.


The rooms themselves are extravagant with hi-tech enhancements throughout, automated control panels that manage the lighting, room temperature and entertainment. The bathrooms were my favorite with deep soaking tubs, rain shower heads and arguably the coolest feature of all – the TV imbedded in the mirror that becomes invisible when turned off.


My high maintenance vegan diet was easily accommodated by their gorgeous restaurant, MOzen Bistro, which features authentic Asian fusion dishes and has a gluten-free & vegan menu that made me and my belly happy.


To top the stay off is their stunning fitness center & yoga studio. One of the nicest, tranquil and holistic environments I’ve seen with views for days.
