But the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star escape isn’t resting with its resplendent ways. As you’ll see below, recently unveiled renovations to the spa and golf course add more relaxation and diversity to the amenity offerings. And new restaurant additions boost the culinary cachet, which already boasts delicious discoveries around every corner.
Five-Star The Spa at Wynn Las Vegas is already a highlight, but thanks to a new look and treatment menu, it’s unveiling a whole new era of mind, body and spirit alignment.
A fresh color palette evokes the beauty of the sky at dusk, and layers of stone and metal in organic forms create a sense of wonderment that will kick off what occurs during your service.
On the menu, there are four new treatments: Forest of Dreams, Dosha Glow, Mojave Bliss and Samadhi Enlightenment. Bringing a New Age element into the spa’s repertoire, the latter service stands out by incorporating the vibrations of handcrafted Himalayan singing bowls, Ayurvedic massage and chakra balancing with semi-precious stones. These additions round out what is already lauded as one of the city’s unique and most exciting spa programs.
The resort is filled with design details so glorious they could be considered art, and the spa is no exception. Take note of the hammered bronze and clear quartzite chandelier by French designer Hervé Van der Straeten and two 18-by-90-foot murals featuring koi fish from artist Paul Montgomery in the hydrotherapy areas. Still, the focus are the signature corridors, punctuated with 28 five-foot onyx pillars, that converge in a central relaxation room anchored by British artist David Harber’s mirror-polished, stainless-steel sculpture Torus.
Since opening in 2005, Wynn Las Vegas has led the city’s culinary renaissance, drawing a roster of top chefs from around the world to run its restaurant collection. In 2020, new names will pop up in the resort’s kitchens to ensure fresh flavors at the tables.
This spring, Elio, a new Latin concept from esteemed Mexican chefs Enrique Olvera (of Pujol Mexico City fame) and Daniela Soto-Innes and business partner Santiago Perez (the latter two of New York City’s Cosme) will debut at Four-Star Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
Los Angeles-based The Hwood Group, led by nightlife kings John Terzian and Brian Toll, will open a desert outpost of their SoCal supper club Delilah this spring.
Later in the year, Thomas Keller Restaurant Group will take over the space formerly occupied by The Country Club restaurant overlooking the golf course with a yet-to-be-announced culinary concept.
The Wynn Golf Club (and its championship course designed by Tom Fazio and his son, Logan) reopened in October 2019 after an extensive two-year transformation that provides for eight new holes and 10 revamped ones.
Sitting on 129 acres, this layout is beloved for its ease of play no matter your skill level: approachable and fun for those just learning but exciting enough for experienced golfers due to its undulating greens.
Now, with wider landing areas, contours and elevation changes thanks to the relocation of more than 400,000 cubic yards of earth and 300 trees, each hole has received an approximate 300-square-foot green expansion. Plus, for those along for the ride, there are major photo moments at every hole, as well as water features and streams that add an air of serenity to the round.
