Just Like Heaven

ElevenSpa Vegas is "heaven on earth," says founder Nicole Oden. The decadent 20,000-square-foot spa, which opened in Las Vegas in February, features dozens of treatments, a clothing boutique and the Ken Paves Salon at Eleven, the well-known stylist's fourth signature salon in the United States. "When I built Eleven, it was with a very clear vision," Oden says. "It was about creating an experience that exceeded guests' expectations from the moment they came through the door."

The luxury spa contains 28 treatment rooms, 11 makeup stations, a signature brow bar and a water fountain, where each guest receives a complimentary hand ritual treatment. But the highlight is an ultramodern lounge and pool area that features six water pods with cascading crystal chandeliers and a wine and champagne bar. The spa also boasts Bungalow 69, an exclusive suite that can be rented by the hour, and a 300-foot studio with a private entrance, as well as a helipad at the airport across the street.

Oden's philosophy behind ElevenSpa Vegas is simple. "It is 100 percent about the client," she says. Partner Ken Paves agrees. "It's not only about making our clients look great," he says, "it's about making them feel amazing." —A.F.
