As our plane didn't leave until 9pm, I had a large gap of time to fill between checkout and the time we left. For $30 (for hotel guests), I bought a day pass to the Aria spa facilities.
I had brought a book to read because I thought I might be a little bit bored. The hours flew by with nary a book needed to pass the time. It was the most relaxed I've been in a long, long time.
While some parts of the spa are co-ed (pool, meditation rooms and a dedicated co-ed lounge area), the whirlpools and saunas were women only. There were 3 whirlpools, each a different temperature from a cool 70F to warm 105F. The cool pool was surprisingly wonderful after spending time in the eucalyptus steam room. I spent some time in the meditiation rooms (the hot stone room was a favorite), but spent much of my time in the infinity pool. While it was someone noisier due to overlooking the Liquid Pool Club below, it was still sublime just to float at the edge and rest my head on my arms.
Hot and cold drinks were provided as were some light snacks. I confess, that despite my best intentions to take advantage of them, I got so carried away relaxing that I didn't get around to partaking.
The bathrooms and showers have just about anything you could need to put yourself together after your spa visit including shampoo, conditioner, hair products, razors and shaving lotion, combs, makeup remover, cleanser, moisturizer and more.
If I ever come back to Vegas, I will definitely plan to spend much more time at the Spa and Salon at Aria and perhaps convince my husband to come along too.
