The South Point casino is getting a full makeover for its spa with a $500,000 renovation set to open Dec. 1.
The Costa Del Sur Spa & Salon will feature new treatment sections and new services. New stations include five for pedicures, five for hair, three for manicures and a new make-up station and color bar. It will also feature a couples relaxation lounge and sauna steam Jacuzzi.
"This project is more than a simple face lift to the exterior," South Point general manager Ryan Growney said of the two-month project.
Among the new treatments are an orange blossom pedicure, Fiji facial, deep tissue massage and a Surf City Body Treatment. Costa Del Sur will be the only Strip salon to carry the TIGI Hair Reborn line of products.
An offer during its grand opening provides a free day's use of the spa and gym with the purchase of a $50 service. Las Vegas residents will receive a regular 20 percent discount on services at the 40,000-square-foot spa.
Located South of the Strip, South Point is a hot spot frequented by locals. The hotel-casino is decorated in a Pacific Coast feel, with golds, reds and browns, mixing an island feel with the ambiance of Southern California.
Guests rooms feature 42-inch flat screen TVs, iPod docking stations and plush linens. Outside, the property features landscaped gardens, a hospitality to entertain poolside and a sand volleyball court.
When it comes to gaming, the South Point has more than 120,000 square feet of casino games, as well as a separate race books and sports books, a bingo and poker room. South Point also has some family friendly features, like a 64-lane bowling center, an arcade and a 16-screen movie theater.
Dining options range from an upscale meal at Michael's Gourmet to ice cream at Kate's Korner. The 24-hour Coronado Cafe is the perfect spot for a late-night craving, which include six midnight to 6 a.m. "graveyard" specials. Other restaurants include the Big Sur Oyster Bar, Don Vito's, Garden Buffet, Seattle's Best Coffee House and the Del Mar Deli.
One of South Points more unique features is the Equestrian Center and Arena, a first for Vegas. The Equestrian Center holds a variety of events, from college basketball to Championship Bull Riding.
