La Bella Vita at Spa Mio

The dark wood paneling lining the walls of Spa Mio at the
M Resort Spa Casino feel as if you’ve entered a very enchanted
forest — albeit an elegantly appointed, luxurious forest with soft robes and fluffy towels. This off-the-Strip sanctuary in the southern part of Las Vegas (just off St. Rose Parkway) may seem more understated than its more centrally located counterparts, but its treatments and technicians are every bit as dazzling. One of the specialties on the menu is the Balancing Elixir Journey (50 minutes, $150), which begins with the placement of small, heated desert stones along the spine at specific acupressure points. Enzyme cream and other moisturizers leave the skin as revitalized as the muscles. Even your wallet can exhale here, because locals receive 25 percent off full-priced offerings every day of the week. themresort.com.
