Reservations Now Being Accepted

Vdara Hotel & Spa at CityCenter introduces Vdara Health & Beauty, a sensuous spa sanctuary that spotlights holistic health and well-being in an intimate environment. Opening December 1, Vdara Health & Beauty will be an 18,000-square-foot, two-level spa, salon and fitness center celebrating the calming power of water. The spa will present a thoughtfully orchestrated journey, personalized to maximize each guest's experience.

Committed to sustainable luxury, Vdara Health & Beauty will be the first Las Vegas spa in the Green Spa Network and has carefully chosen retail partners that share its concern for the environment. The spa also will be committed to using organic or wild-crafted, paraben-free products; the implementation of a recycling program and use of recycled paper for spa materials; and will provide natural nail services using a vegan treatment line.

All are invited to experience Vdara Health & Beauty's personalized service. The Spa and Salon now are accepting reservations via (866) 391-7111 or (702) 590-2030.


  --  Spa guests will have easy access to Vdara Health & Beauty; the
      elevator will open directly into the spa reception area on the second
      level of the hotel. As guests enter, they will be welcomed by a
      two-story waterfall comprised of shimmering strings of beads that
      glisten as water cascades down them into the reflective pool below.
      Sapele wood floors with mink marble and river-stone floor accents will
      create a sleek and modern look throughout the space.

  --  Each level of the spa will express a distinct atmosphere laced with
      luxury. The first level will be a light, social space where patrons
      can mingle in the main reception lobby, enter the fitness center and
      salon, browse the spa boutique or enjoy a glass of bubbly at the
      Champagne Bar. The wellness spa on the second level will inspire a
      calm and soothing energy.

  Wellness Spa
  --  Vdara Health & Beauty's wellness spa will feature 11 private treatment
      rooms, men's and women's retreats, and serene lounges. As guests relax
      in their respective retreats, they will unwind with a selection of
      herbal teas and apothecary-infused water, and enjoy redwood saunas and
      eucalyptus steam rooms. Intimate lounges will feature inviting soaking
      tubs and dramatic circular waterfalls that spill over into the pools
      of water.

  --  The Relaxation Lounge and Meditation Lounge each will provide quiet
      getaways where guests can unwind amongst soothing water features and
      lighting. In the Meditation Lounge, a metallic mosaic sheathed in
      iridescent blue and gold tones will illuminate a curtain of water that
      flows behind a candlelit ledge.

  Spa Treatments
  --  Treatments will be both classic and creative with a focus on holistic
      health and will incorporate high-grade and organic ingredients derived
      from fruits, herbs, flowers, vegetables and oils. The spa menu will be
      comprised of a variety of massages, body treatments and skin care
  --  Vdara Health & Beauty is the first resort spa in Las Vegas to launch
      Dr. Obagi's new line, ZO Skin Health, for facial services and home
      care.  The philosophy of this line is to create change at the cellular
      level, to re-energize aging skin and constantly stimulate cellular
      function by saturating skin with stabilized retinol, advanced peptides
      and powerful antioxidants.
  --  Also featured at Vdara Health & Beauty, Naturopathica Holistic
      Health's signature products will inspire healthy lifestyles through
      innovative natural products. The products contain no petroleum-based
      ingredients, artificial dyes or fragrances and are fortified with the
      highest-quality therapeutic essential oils and herbs.

      Flower and Peter Thomas Roth.

      conditioning treatments and styling.
  --  Aveda also will be included as one of the lush options for hair
      treatment. Aveda was founded with the goal of providing beauty
      industry professionals with high-performance, botanically based
      products that are better for guests, and the planet. Aveda is one of
      the largest purchasers of organic ingredients in the personal care
  --  SpaRitual, known for creating eco-friendly products, will be Vdara
      Health & Beauty's nail care line. SpaRitual has developed a collection

      and establish a flawless environment for color. SpaRitual also is the
      first to offer DBP, formaldehyde and toluene-free nail elixirs in the
      professional nail care industry and the first spa treatment line of
      vegan nail care products.

  --  Makeup artistry will incorporate BeingTRUE cosmetics, truly modern
      makeup that features ideal color palettes for every skin tone and

      benefits of traditional mineral makeup, BeingTRUE offers additional
      aging defense with super antioxidant Idebenone.
