Las Vegas, the oasis in the desert, is the perfect location for your next vacation with your girlfriends. Las Vegas has it all—Shows! Dining! Shopping! Entertainment! and best of all – Pampering! There’s a reason they say, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Come visit Sin City for yourself, and you and your girlfriends will create special memories – to be shared with the world or kept secret among best friends.
Nothing says pampering quite like spas. When splurging traveling, creature comforts are a must—massages, foot rubs, robes, custom-blended essential oils, aromatherapy, body exfoliation, hot stones, deep tissue massage, full body algae wrap, facials, and steam rooms. You can go as a group, pair off, or even as individuals for a little “me-time.” Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas specializes in spa treatments from the Far East. In addition to the 18 different spa treatments, Mandarin Oriental offers beauty treatments, a Chinese foot spa, a beauty salon, and fitness and yoga.
The Spa at ENCORE has a more decadent feel to it.
“The theme feels partly Indian and partly Moroccan, starting with the dramatic entrance: guests walk down a river-rock path lined with gold lanterns, to be greeted at the end by an 8-foot, hand-carved sculpture of Buddha.”
The environment was designed to help you relax and let the experts work their magic on your body. Between the waterfall showers, garden villas, Polynesian massage, and all the details designed with you in mind, your body will be rejuvenated and your skin will have a fresh glow.

What would a girls’ getaway trip be without shopping? Some of the best stores in Las Vegas are right on the Strip, like The Shops at Crystals, a collection of “50 of the finest luxury retailers in the world.”
“If you’re looking exclusively for designer names, The Shops at Crystals is home to the largest collection of flagship and unique-to-the-market locations in Las Vegas, including Prada, Gucci, Sisley and Tourbillon.”
The Forum Shops at Caesars has more than 160 shops in a high-end shopping mall that looks like a street in ancient Rome. Next door to Caesars Palace on The Strip, The Forum Shops have some of your favorite brands like Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co. Chanel, and H&M.
Outlet shopping is here in Vegas, too! Check out Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas (south of the city), Las Vegas North Premium Outlets (closer to downtown), and Las Vegas South Premium Outlets (south of The Strip).
A vacation with just the girls is needed once in a while. Without the kids. Without the husbands and boyfriends. Just the girls. Las Vegas—it’s not just for the high rollers anymore.
