AC Now: Luxuries: Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa at Harrah’s

At the newest (and our current favorite) A.C. spa, a pedicure puts you on a throne and a massage puts you … to sleep. Among the 23 spic ’n’ spectacular treatment rooms for fancied-up rubdowns, scrubs, waxings, wraps and facials galore, the highlight is the couple’s suite. Boasting a roaring fire, a plush couch and a Jacuzzi-for-two tub and shower combo, the setup is half pristine lounge, half foreplay.

Still, Liz Arden doesn’t overlook singles: Pre- and post-treatment zones offer gender-separated steam rooms, saunas and fireside Jacuzzis. Satisfying pick-you-ups come in the forms of long-lasting mani-pedis, best-in-town facials, soul-soothing elemental balancing massages, and absolutely necessary bikini waxes (since, after all, The Pool is just steps away). Wanna take home one of the signature, extra-large plush robes like we did? You can — but you gotta pay up $125 at the front desk.
