Mavens Overview

The Grand Spa, unlike everything else at the MGM Grand, is relatively small scale, at 30,000 square feet. The spa is less than half the size of the spas at Bellagio and Venetian. The spa just seems to be lacking the extra pizzazz the top spas in Vegas exude. As noted in the internet buzz below, the spa is perfectly adequate, and covers all the bases.

Adjacent to the spa is Christophe Salon. Christophe is known for his celebrity clientele and perhaps most famously for the incident where he cut President Bill Clinton's hair on Air Force One at LAX.

Spa offers all the requisite treatments and the more exotic ones, which make even more exotic claims for your future well being. The press release highlights the following treatment:

2-hour signature treatment, The Dreaming Ritual, incorporates Australian Aboriginal massage techniques, a hair mask as well as hand and foot treatments into this experience designed to rejuvenate body, mind and soul.

How could a place that promises to rejuvenate you mind, body, and soul in a mere two hours be rated just average.


Internet Buzz

MGM's spa is perfectly adequate but it's a country mile behind Canyon Ranch which is up there with the very best in LV.

The Zen-inspired Grand Spa at the MGM Grand is tucked away at the back of the property, far away from the chaos of the casino and the bustling restaurant areas.

The MGM Grand's Grand Spa is a Zen-Asian minimalist wonder, all natural stone and aged wood.

The facilities aren't quite up to those at Mandalay Bay's spa or at the Canyon Ranch spa at Venetian, but there are some good things about the Grand spa: lots of snacks (granola, fruit, juices, teas, endless bottles of water), an abundance of cold towels, and some good treatments.( I had a good facial)

One thing to note is that the Grand Spa adds a 20% service charge for every treatment.

I liked their amenities and thought they stocked up pretty well. There are even disposable toothbrushes that come with their own toothpaste!

The receptionists were not as friendly as I would have liked and did not seem to be familiar with the spa menu of services.

I do love the spa, but my pocketbook keeps me from going as much as I'd like.

Compared to other spas I've been to, I thought it was average. There wasn't anything bad about the experience and there wasn't anything that stood out either.

For such a large hotel, the spa is relatively small compared to others on the strip...nothing really stands out at the spa, which is kind of surprising considering how much I like the MGM.

The state-of-the-art health club is larger than most, with some serious machines, including ones equipped with fancy computer video monitors.
