Get ready for a dose of South Beach to come to Las Vegas. The Delano, taking over THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, is getting ready to show off all that it will become when it has its grand opening on Sept. 1, just in time for Labor Day weekend. While the entire resort is getting a revamp that brings in a lot of the natural elements of Las Vegas and its desert surroundings as well as the chic Delano touches, the one thing that will practically remain unscathed is the second-floor Bathhouse, the spa already at the resort.
Delano's general manager Matthew Chilton says the spa will get small touch ups here and there, but the water and natural products look of the spa is in line with the way the rest of the resort will look.
But that doesn't mean the spa menu won't change. Look for a passel of new services, including the Double the Pleasure Massage, where two massage therapists work in tandem. Other new treatments include what's called the Global Journeys, a collection of treatments "that will guide guests through a series of exquisite treatments reflecting traditional rituals from regions around the world including India, Asia, Europe and a 'Taste From the Islands'."
Chilton says another reason the spa won't change is because parent company Morgans Hotel Group originally had a spa called The Bathhouse at one of their first hotels.
Also of interest to beauty junkies, Malin + Goetz products will be in all the hotel rooms, which are being converted into swanky suites.
