Fontainebleau Las Vegas gives first look at spa and fitness amenities

21 September 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Fontainebleau Las Vegas, the luxury resort and casino brought to life by Fontainebleau Development, is set to revolutionize wellness tourism with the opening of its cutting-edge, 55,000-square-foot Lapis Spa and 14,000-square-foot fitness center. Exemplifying a commitment to holistic health experiences, the resort’s industry-leading facilities will be available to guests upon Fontainebleau Las Vegas’ debut on 13 December 2023, pending regulatory approvals.

A nod to its original Miami Beach roots, the Lapis Spa’s namesake draws reference from Lapis Lazuli, a deep celestial blue crystal associated with the protective qualities of strength, courage, power, wisdom, intuition, intellect, truth, and spiritual connection. Designed by Milan-based Lissoni & Partners and led by Fontainebleau Las Vegas Director of Spa and Wellness Jennifer Lynn, Lapis Spa pays homage to Morris Lapidus, the architect and visionary designer of the original Fontainebleau Miami Beach. His signature “design that broke all the rules” lives on today within the Lapis Spa amenities. The two-level spa offers a uniquely personalized and immersive experience, blending the art of ancient rejuvenation methodologies with innovative modern healing technologies.

“Crafted with precision, care, and a commitment to well-being, every element of Lapis Spa will transport guests into a realm of tranquility and renewal,” says Lynn. “Just as we take pride in curating extraordinary experiences for our guests, we are equally proud to have assembled a team of world-renowned health and wellness experts to guide them through each step of their experience. Lapis Spa and our Fitness Center are transformative, leading guests along a path to holistic rejuvenation and renewal. No matter the duration of your stay, the impact of the experience will endure.”

Lapis Spa offers a full spectrum of wellness-enhancing facilities including 44 massage, facial, and body treatment rooms; cold plunges; a nail salon; reboot lounge; and penthouse spa for small group experiences. Additional highlights include:

- Infrared Saunas – designed to provide a comfortable sauna experience for those sensitive to heat, the saunas’ infrared lamps focus on penetrating warmth directly onto the skin to bring heat-therapy benefits without having to crank up the thermostat.
- The Aufguss Sauna – one of the largest in the United States, the Aufguss Sauna (or Event Sauna) is an avant-garde, social wellness experience that incorporates sauna, aromatherapy steam, and a theatrical presentation of towel movements choreographed with music and lights.
- Salt Mist Chamber – halo-therapy, otherwise known as speleotherapy, is a salt-based therapy focused on health benefits for respiratory conditions. The Salt Mist Chamber is expertly designed with a salt brick wall and salt dispensing system that circulates micro units of misty salt into the chamber to help reduce inflammation, clear toxins, improve lung function, among other benefits.
- Experience Showers – a playful way to cleanse the body, Lapis Spa’s seven different Experience Showers pair perfectly with a hydrotherapy circuit, Aufguss or infrared sauna, or Salt Mist Chamber treatment. Different showers feature body sprays, overhead bucket bliss deluge, and a simulated gentle rainstorm, each experience providing contrast water therapy.
- Snow Shower – a unique, whimsical way to cool down, the Snow Shower is chilled to a frosty 14 degrees Fahrenheit while a snow machine fills the space with white, fluffy snowflakes. The perfect way to cool off after a heated treatment, the heated floor keeps toes warm while the snow melts away as it hits the ground.
- Herbal Inhalation Room – integrating the age-old practice of harnessing the essence of botanicals to soothe and uplift the mind, body, and soul, the Herbal Inhalation Room utilizes essential oils to provide therapeutic, psychological, and physiological respite in a relaxing environment.

Unique to Lapis Spa, the atmosphere of the wellness escape is designed to adapt to the guests’ natural circadian rhythm and biological clock in order for them to best achieve their individual goals. Throughout the day, the neutral space is transformed through all-encompassing and immersive sensory elements from aromatherapy to lighting, starting off with a calm atmosphere in the morning and transitioning into a more vibrant energy through the afternoon.

Complementing Lapis Spa is the Fitness Center. A functional and performance-based environment, the Fitness Center features Peloton bikes, Woodway treadmills, Hydrow rowers, VersaClimbers, and Echo bikes alongside traditional cardio equipment. Advanced strength equipment located in the Performance Zone include Jacob’s Ladder, HIIT modular system, and a sled push and tractor tire flip area to diversify the workout experience. A Movement studio within the Fitness Center will offer daily classes in yoga, Pilates, and stretch and recovery. Guests will also have access to personal trainers, providing hands-on service to motivate and lead them through the facility’s wellness programs.

“Whether we are talking about strength and conditioning, diet and nutrition, or recovery and regeneration – we are focused on meeting the core needs of our guests,” Lynn says. “We’ve created a destination for user-friendly, accessible experiences that allow guests to incorporate their fitness-centric lifestyle into their stay at Fontainebleau Las Vegas.”
