Spa fanatics can keep their coffee scrubs and mud rubs for themselves. For my money, the best mashup of new ideas and old-school techniques is the 80-minute Thai Fusion massage at Bathhouse, the moody, zen spa treatments on the second floor of the Delano. Combining elements of traditional Thai massage, shiatsu and deep tissue work, a series of long, slow, deep strokes plus assisted and passive stretching made my arms, legs and back go mushy. You know those massage sticks your trainer is always telling you to use? Forget them. Turns out an inexpensive, polished birch wood dowel works even better, at least when my therapist used it and some warm oils to further rubberize my thighs, calves and hips. "Sometimes a spa adds a fancy name to a boring treatment," my very grounded, very Crossfit-sculpted therapist advised me when I asked if she'd ever choose a New Age-sounding treatment for herself. "Other times, like with this Thai Fusion therapy, it's the real deal, and it's not to be missed." You know what? She's right.

What to Expect at The Bathhouse Las Vegas
The Bathhouse at Delano Las Vegas is not quite boutique but it does give you a sense of individuality. This is not a giant spa where spa attendants are at every turn and the number of options are endless when you are still grappling with how to approach your spa day. The size of the spa does not matter. Really, size does not matter! Spend a little time in the redwood sauna, drop into a heated whirlpool, breathe easier in the eucalyptus steam room and then wake up in the cold plunge. You’ll find everything that you would normally expect from a high-quality spa in a more personalized packaged at Bathhouse at Delano Las Vegas.
