Spa visitors can expect to have an experience that utilizes the newest products and services in the industry in the largest spas in the world. Spa operators help meet this challenge by exchanging information with each other at the annual LVSA Survey “round table.”

The Survey has become an important part in the improved operations for over 30 Las Vegas area resort spa locations. Spa directors in Las Vegas work in a collaborative effort, sharing best practices with the goal of creating the best spa experience possible at each member location.
