There is something fun about having a regular girls’ night where you can forget about the worries of the week and just hang with the ladies. What’s even better is a girls’ getaway! These are few and far between for many of us, and it’s kind of sad because they are awesome! Planning a night or two (or three) away, for you and the ladies? I’ve got 7 reasons to make the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa your girls’ getaway destination, in Reno, NV.
Some of the Best Restaurants in Reno – Many of the restaurants at Atlantis have been rated among the top restaurants in Reno, and with good reason. I’ve now tried 4 of the restaurants and have loved everything I’ve eaten. During our girls’ getaway we dined at the Sky Terrace Sushi and Oyster Bar, for dinner. In addition to Instagram-worthy sushi, the tempura asparagus was equally amazing. Order off the menu or go for the all-you-can-eat sushi! Service was super fast too.
For brunch, we opted for the Purple Parrot – the casino’s original and longest standing restaurant. Because we got down there for more of a late breakfast (you’ll read why in a moment), we went a little more for the lunch menu. Mom got the Monte Cristo, which was big enough to have leftovers or share. Andrea had a vegetarian wrap, and I went for the waitress’s recommendation of the Oriental Chicken Salad. It was huge, and it was delicious!
Top-Rated Spa – Spa Atlantis is Reno’s only Forbes Four-Star Luxury Spa. Purchase a day pass and just enjoy all the amenities, or book a treatment. Every girls’ getaway destination should include a spa, right?! My sister got a massage, I received a facial, and my mom got the Hanakasumi body ritual.
We especially love hanging out in the Brine Inhalation-Light Therapy Lounge and taking a dip in one of the hot tubs or swimming pool. The tea lounge is also nice to munch on snacks and sip on tea while waiting for your treatment. You can also find different infused waters throughout the spa. Here’s what my mom had to say about her spa treatment:
I loved my Atlantis Spa experience. From the moment we walked into the spa, until we left, we were treated with the utmost professionalism, consideration and kindness. Atlantis staff is well trained and goes out of the way to make your spa experience pleasurable. Jessica, my massage therapist, was highly qualified and very skilled in administering the Hanakasumi Body Ritual. She made sure I was comfortable and informed about the process, catering to my every need. Hanakasumi is a full body exfoliation with warmed exfoliating cream infused with Cherry Blossom and Rice Powder. The cream is rubbed onto your body then exfoliated with special gloves which softens the skin and invigorates the body. Exfoliation is followed by a thorough foot reflexology treatment, which relaxes and releases tension and toxins. The Hanakasumi Ritual is completed with a gentle full body massage with Asian scented shea butter and oils. I felt relaxed, invigorated and indulged and glowing. Thank you, Jessica for a blissful 90 min.
Concierge tower and lounge – As Reno’s only concierge tower, you’ll get excellent views and the opportunity to stop by the concierge lounge throughout the day for different bites to eat. Have a continental breakfast in the morning, desserts in the afternoon, or hors d’oeuvres in the evening.
Excellent customer service/staff – Every staff member we passed in the casino, restaurants or spa were extremely helpful and courteous. Staff members offered to help us find where we were going, and were nothing but kind and respectful.
Location – Not only are you close to all that Reno has to offer (think fun evening shows), but Atlantis Casino Resort Spa is just a short drive to Tahoe, for some activities in the beautiful nature! The hotel is also situated just outside the strip so you really feel like a little oasis and escape.
Salon – After you’re done getting all the kinks worked out of your body, freshen your look or get a new “do” at the Salon. You can also make an appointment to have your nails done, without having to leave the hotel!
Fine bed linens, pillows and amenities – If you’ve read my other hotel reviews, you know how much I appreciate a comfortable bed, but most of all, great pillows! I loved the pillows at Atlantis, and all of the linens and amenities were of nice quality. It’s the little things.
Whether you want to get away with sisters, family or friends, Atlantis makes for one excellent girls’ getaway destination!
