Overview

Come and indulge in our 18,000-square-foot spa! Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort is Mandara Spa’s newest location, the only one of its kind set in the verdant hills of North Carolina. Visitors of the resort will find an exotic Balinese inspired menu that features the professional Elemis spa-therapy brand for results-focused face and body treatments. As well as Mandara signatures such as the Balinese Massage and Balinese Body Scrub, Mandara Spa at Harrah’s Cherokee has created both a face and body treatment that infuses herbs from the Native American Pharmacopeia celebrating the native heritage of the resort. These exclusive services include the Lavender Healing Repair Facial which uses Lavender, a key healing herb used in Native American ceremonies to soothe, relax and restore, and the Juniper Berry and Algae Detox which uses Juniper Berries also used in Native American ceremonies to dispel negative energy and purify the environment. We urge you to try them both! Mandara Spa at Harrah’s Cherokee also offers specific treatments and packages for men, including the Mountain Escape for Men, promising a dose of euphoria with a traditional Deep Tissue Massage followed by an Elemis Skin IQ for Men Facial. Couples can also share the experience and indulge in the Sacred Feather Ritual for Two inclusive of a massage for each while laying side by side, a bathing ritual in a large hydrotherapy bath, and champagne with chocolate treats. Guests for both spa and salon services check in at the main spa reception located on the second floor. Also on the second floor is the salon, which offers guests a complete hair and nail treatment menu, featuring a nail bar, pedicure thrones, and styling stations. To enter the spa’s quiet zone, guests will take the spa elevator down to the first floor men’s and women’s changing rooms equipped with showers, amenities, lockers and robes before entering wet areas with sauna and Jacuzzi pool. Also featured is a co-ed relaxation lounge where guests can prepare for their treatments creek side, as well as two couple suites, complete with a large hydrotherapy bath that is shared by both the suites.
