We were recently pleasantly surprised and genuinely impressed by the Spa Atlantis at the Atlantis Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada. 

This spa truly stood out and its absolutely no surprise that it has garnered so many prestigious spa awards, the country over.

The quality of the amenities, the luxuriousness of the environment, the service of the staff, and caliber of the products and treatments, all made this a truly memorable and pleasing spa experience in every regard.

We particularly enjoy aromatherapy so we relished in the various aromatherapy options such as the Brine Inhalation Light Therapy Lounge, the cedar steam room, and the Laconium Relaxation Lounge. We also enjoyed that throughout the spa in at least a dozen places, various and differing, infused waters such as Kiwi Cinnamon or Melon Mint, were constantly replenished during our five Atlantis_Spa_infused waterhour stay. Nuts and fruits and light snacks were also available and we enjoyed them as we nibbled them between hours of relaxation in numerous waterfall pools of various temperatures throughout the Aqua Spa Lounge.

The locker room lounges were some of the best we have seen with the latest in luxury. Delightfully scented complimentary sea salt scrubs are offered throughout the men’s and women’s lounge, along with opulent toiletries, luxurious showers, and lush linens and robes. The common and shared areas were constantly kept impeccably clean by an attentive staff. Locker rooms for both sexes offered thoroughly relaxing tea lounges and saunas.

While the spa treatments are actually quite reasonably priced, as is day use of the spa when you consider all the amenities offered, there are also some fabulous spa packages available where meals and lodging are included for extremely reasonable prices.

Couples treatments and treatment rooms are available making this a terrific location for a romantic getaway or equally a great option for girlfriend getaways.

Atlantis _Spa_scrubsThe design and lay-out of this very large spa, literally flows, making it easy to wander from one wonderful and relaxing spa experience option to another even when one is blissfully enjoying a post-massage daze.

We recommend allowing at least half a day at this wonderful oasis in the high desert. We left recharged and feeling like I had been on a week long vacation. This spa is one of the best.
