Greetings from Paradise

A bottle of bubbly, charcuterie platter, and a card from our hostess that read “Greetings from Paradise” welcomed Team Bliss poolside at the Atlantis Resort, and we soon discovered what a true sliver of paradise Spa Atlantis truly is. 

For the 4th consecutive year, Spa Atlantis has earned the highly coveted Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star designation, the only spa to attain this recognition in northern Nevada. Of the nearly 1,700 rated hotels, restaurants and spas in 60 countries (and counting), Forbes has recognized only 217 Four-Star spas, thus placing Spa Atlantis on its exclusive list of the most luxurious spas in the world.  

Team Bliss was whisked away into a much needed slice of heaven and relaxation after a stressful week monopolized by magazine editing, design, meetings, and the laborious task of rebranding. We let our hair down, slipped on our bikinis, and channeled our inner zen as we immersed ourselves into what is known as the Aqua Spa Lounge. The Aqua Spa Lounge has an Experiential Shower and 4 different spas with varying temperature to invigorate and relax the system.   

Next, we decided to check out the various treatment rooms that consisted of the Brine Inhalation-Light Therapy Lounge, Laconium Relaxation Lounge, and the herbal steam and cedarwood sauna. Each provided an experience for senses, mind, body and soul that only a Four-Star designated spa can do. 

I was especially intrigued by the Rasul Ceremonial Chambers which provides an intimate experience for couples, whether it be newlyweds, your bestie, or if you’re flying solo! This luxurious body treatment is reminiscent of the ancient Arabian cleansing rituals of royalty. This private, extravagant experience takes place in a temple under the twinkling light of the stars and concludes with a tropical rain shower. I booked my couples appointment right away and can’t wait to share with you my experience in one of our next issues! 

All good things must come to an end and so did our afternoon escapade at Spa Atlantis. We could have spent days decompressing and experiencing all that this exquisite 4 Star designated slice of paradise has to offer. You had us at “Hello”! This looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship! Ahhhhhh!
