My teen daughter and I don’t typically love casinos for numerous reasons like smoke, crowds, noise, and other non-family-friendly aspects, but we love the Spa Altlantis in Reno, Nevada which offers us a completely tranquil and smoke free oasis from the busyness of the adjoining casino and gaming areas of the resort.
As a mom-daughter team looking for some respite, we are always pleasantly surprised and genuinely impressed by the Spa Atlantis because this spa truly stands out. It is no surprise that it has garnered so many prestigious spa awards, the country over.
My daughter and I love the gift shop with so many comfy and pretty robes, lotions, spa sandals, pool shoes, lavender toiletries, and gifts. It’s like a mom-daughter shopping outing just enjoying the boutique.
Throughout the spa, the quality of the amenities, the luxuriousness of the environment, the service of the staff, and caliber of the products and treatments, make this a truly memorable and pleasing spa experience in every regard.
The various treatment choices, lounges and diversity in the snacks stand out as favorites in our visits.
My daughter and I particularly enjoy aromatherapy so we both savor the various aromatherapy options such as the Brine Inhalation Light Therapy Lounge, the cedar steam room, and the Laconium Relaxation Lounge.
We both like to snack as we “spa.” Throughout the spa in at least a dozen places, various and differing, infused waters such as Kiwi Cinnamon or Melon Mint, are constantly replenished during visits. Nuts and fruits and light snacks are also available and we both enjoy them as we nibble between hours of relaxation in numerous waterfall pools of various temperatures throughout the Aqua Spa Lounge.
The locker room lounges are some of the best I have seen with the latest in luxury. Delightfully scented complimentary sea salt scrubs are placed throughout the women’s lounge, along with opulent toiletries, luxurious showers, and lush linens and robes. The common and shared areas are constantly kept impeccably clean by an attentive staff. Locker rooms for both sexes provide thoroughly relaxing and well-stocked tea lounges and saunas.
While the spa treatments are a bit pricey, they are fairly reasonably priced as far as spas go, as is day use of the spa when you consider all the amenities offered. There are usually some fabulous spa packages available throughout the year, where meals and lodging are included for competitive 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. Multi-generational reprieves would also be wonderfully accommodated. I can think of endless possibilities with this exceptional spa and I am always thinking ahead for my next excuse to visit with or without a kid in tow, as my husband and I do try to stay there at least once a year.
Just outside the spa are several wonderful kid-friendly pools, spas, and cabanas so vacationing families can enjoy water fun with dads and siblings while moms indulge nearby in the spa.
My daughter and I like that the 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.
Allow at least half a day at this wonderful oasis in the high desert. We always leave recharged and feeling like we’ve been on nearly a week-long vacation. It’s the only spa east of the Mississippi that we can remember every visiting where we really feel like we’ve been on an extended vacation rather than just a day trip. Yes, it is that relaxing.
