SPA ELEMENTS

--  Celebrating Nature. Guests will be welcomed by a tranquil stone and
    water garden adorned with sacred Japanese Aji stones, blessed in Japan to
    inspire calmness and tranquility. Natural light flowing through floor-to-
    ceiling windows will awaken the senses and dance in harmony with the water
    garden in a mesmerizing rhythm. Soothing music and signature scents will
    ease guests' tension as panoramic views of Las Vegas' sprawling mountain
    ranges and ARIA's lush poolscape evoke peace and prepare guests for a
    mental escape.
    
--  Treatment Rooms and Relaxation Lounges. Treatment room walls will be
    made from earthy soil to provide an indigenous, warm feeling. A unique salt
    meditation room ("shio") will feature a wall of illuminated salt bricks
    that encourages the healing of skin irritations and upper respiratory
    problems. Adorned with salt lamps and lounge chairs that provide vibration
    therapy in rhythm to sensual music, salt-infused air will leave guests with
    radiant and dewy skin. A second meditation room will be the only in the
    country to offer Japanese stone sauna ("ganbanyoku") beds. During a
    ganbanyoku treatment, guests will relax upon a bed of heated black mineral
    stone that emits negative ions and far-infrared rays. In addition to
    relaxing muscles, the treatment will help improve blood circulation,
    increase metabolism and eliminate toxins from the body. A fire lounge will
    serve as a place for relaxation before or following treatments.
    
--  Spa Suites. ARIA will feature three private spa suites, each serving
    as a personal "spa within a spa." The suites will include luxurious
    amenities, a striking design complemented by serene Aji stone walls and
    natural light; a lounge area with entertainment offerings; vanity; lockers;
    a personal steam shower and a three-person hydrotherapy tub. Guests will be
    able to customize their journey from the selection of first-class spa and
    salon services and gourmet dining options to flower arrangements, gift
    baskets and more. Suites will serve up to eight people, and spa packages
    will range from a three-hour series of treatments to the 12-hour VIP
    experience.
    
--  Co-Ed Balcony. All guests will be welcome to visit the Spa's co-ed
    balcony and enjoy the outdoor therapy pool. Resembling a Japanese open-air
    hot bath ("rotenburo"), guests can experience a sense of freedom while
    enjoying views of the hotel's main pool deck.
    
--  Salon. The salon will feature 16 stylist stations, six color stations,
    four make-up stations, 12 manicure stations, 15 pedicure stations, one

    CityCenter.

    either private or group sessions, and may be tailored to fit personal
    needs.
    
--  Boutique. The Spa Boutique will highlight an indulgent collection of
    beauty and spa offerings, as well as eco-conscious lifestyle-driven
    apparel, products, home accessories and jewelry.
