Laura Wood

The Spa & Salon at Park MGM
Spa Director
With a background in VIP services and more than 15 years of experience in the spa industry, one of Laura Wood’s strongest skills is naturally her ability to cultivate strong, genuine connections with her customers and colleagues alike. Laura began her professional wellness path at the world-class Bellagio Spa & Salon as an aesthetician, moving up through the ranks to achieve the title of Lead Aesthetician in 2009. In 2018, Laura took on a new challenge: the development of an approachable wellness experience at The Spa and Salon at Park MGM as its director. Laura brought her passion for wellbeing to Park MGM in a formative way, working with the MGM Resorts International corporate teams to develop a program that integrates holistic healing practices (such as the spa’s bespoke guided meditation enhancement) and organic treatment options into a cozy and intimate spa environment unlike anything else on The Strip. Inviting and low-key, the spa environment evokes a neighborhood hangout, and is a relaxation destination for experienced spagoers and newbies alike. Her favorite treatment is the Welcome Home Massage, an 80-minute massage with a simultaneous mini-facial (an excellent example of the facility’s dual-use treatment rooms). “My wellness philosophy is that life and time are precious. Take the trip, try things that challenge you mentally and physically, approach life with an open heart and always drink the wine!” – Laura Wood
