Canyon Ranch Meets Las Vegas

On the Las Vegas Strip, but worlds away, Canyon Ranch Spa + fitness at The Venetian Resort offers 134,000 square feet of rejuvenation. Since its opening in 1999, Canyon Ranch Spa + fitness has received countless awards and commendations. The centerpiece of the largest day spa in North America is the Aquavana experience, where you can embrace the healing and tension-releasing power of advanced thermal treatments. Aquavana offers a complete European-inspired suite of thermal spa cabins, tubs, and aqua thermal bathing options. 

Aquavana encompasses hydrothermal principles by offering single-sex, thermal environments.

The Herbal Laconium is an herbal-infused humid environment providing a gentle warming of the body. The HydroSpa offers radiant lounge chairs designed for relaxation and a variety of massage fountains providing gentle pressure for releasing tension and rebalancing the body. Lastly, the Igloo offers cool air and three Arctic Mist experiences enhanced by twinkling fiber optics.

Out To Sea with Canyon Ranch

Far from the typical cruise ship spa, Canyon Ranch spas can be found on 22 luxury cruise ships with Celebrity Cruises, Cunard, Oceania Cruises, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Combining age-old wisdom, modern facilities, and expert guidance, Canyon Ranch Spa and The Spa by Canyon Ranch on Celebrity Cruise’s Millennium, Constellation, Eclipse, Equinox, Infinity, Reflection, Silhouette, Solstice, and Summit ships help you make the most of this special time at sea. Get your heart pumping in exciting fitness classes, presentations, and workshops. 

While Cunard sets the standard in maritime luxury, Canyon Ranch sets the stage for wellness and beauty expertise. Together, they create a sanctuary of calm, where you can soak up the transformational power of the oceans. Mareel, on Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, is the newest spa experience from Canyon Ranch — exclusively on Cunard. At home on Queen Mary 2 for more than a decade, Canyon Ranch spa features endless opportunities for internal and external wellness.

Set sail for a new perspective with Canyon Ranch and Oceania Cruises and discover opportunities for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation both at port and at sea on Insignia, Marina, Nautica, Regatta, Riviera, and Sirena. Your days could move from a one-on-one Pilates class to a mudbathing ritual — complete with mineral-rich benefits — during an Oceania Wellness  Tour inspired by Canyon Ranch, to the best rest of your life as part of the Blissful Dreams program. Experience more of the Canyon Ranch spa with the purchase of a daily pass, which provides access to private environments including the thalassotherapy pool, sundeck, and even an aromatic steam room on some ships.
