Behold: Nothing shines quite as brightly as the neon glow of the Las Vegas skyline thanks to the Bellagio Hotel and Casino’s iconic fountains and “borrowed” national treasures. Not to be outdone, the Paris Hotel’s 46-story replica of the Eiffel Tower may be half the landmark’s size, but the hotel and casino’s 360-degree views of the city beckon all those seeking an overnight fortune, endless entertainment … and instant “I Dos.”
Easily the best show in Vegas. Nearly as exciting as winning a jackpot. Without a doubt a performance that stops visitors in their tracks. Who knew a fountain could dance like that? Every half hour, against the obsidian night sky, this amazing fountain dazzles with a show that interweaves music, lights and water. Across an 8-acre lake, water wriggles, squiggles and shoots -- sometimes as much as 24stories high -- to tunes from artists ranging from Frank Sinatra to Rachmaninoff. Designed by renowned WET Design, the fountain entertains up close or when seen from afar.
It’s a 24/7 party in Las Vegas, and there’s no better place to see The Strip by day than at Cosmopolitan’s Marquee Dayclub, a pool party that runs through Columbus Day Weekend each year. The world’s best DJs (think Armin Van Buuren, Lema and Bash Berlin) spin top tracks while bikini bodies worthy of a Maxim cover party poolside. By night, Marquee turns into a full-fledged nightclub, complete with rooms like “The Library” and “BoomBox.”
When you come to Vegas, you think of shows, casinos, slots, bright lights and the 1,000 things you do outside your room and resort. Now, Tao Beach may have just done the impossible: It’s built a haven within a haven. One from which you will not want to escape. A place where they wrap you in their hands. Hit you with the phat beats from the DJ. And make you dance and party all day and night, until you’re completely immersed in their altered, but oh so desirable, state of reality.
Get ready to raise the bar for nighttime entertainment! This Las Vegas Strip pool area features 3-story bungalow lofts, cabanas, infinity pools and a party deck. It’s all at the Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan resort.
Instead of gladiators, you'll find bikini-clad bathers at the Temple Pool. Part of iconic Caesars Palace's gargantuan Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, The Temple Pool is one of 8 watery playgrounds at the hotel that references Rome's hedonistic past. With columns, an immense rotunda, squirting fountains and a golden statue of Caesar himself, the circular pool draws an elegant crowd. Take a break from gambling to lounge atop day beads or cavort in a cabana.
Gold glass that stretches 64 stories into the air, 11,000 square-feet of spa amenities, a 110-foot-long heated pool -- extravagance is the name of the game in Las Vegas, and Trump International follows in that tradition of luxury. With 24-hour in-suite dining and food delivery to your private, air-conditioned cabana on the pool deck, there isn’t much reason to leave the hotel -- except for the 4.2 miles of casinos, shows and trendy hot spots on the Strip. You might just forget to go home.
Not surprisingly, the Bellagio Hotel and Casino is home to one of the best pools on the Las Vegas Strip -- or should we say 5 pools. Marvel at the romantic, Mediterranean-infused masterpiece from a balcony before descending the staircase to recline on a (reserved) chaise lounge -- cocktail in hand, naturally, from the pool bar. If you’re planning to stay all day, opt for a private cabana, which in addition to a private patio and dressing area, boasts a wet bar, stocked refrigerator, cable TV and an iPod dock -- so you can take your poolside soundtrack into your own hands.
Soak up the sun this spring break at the MGM Grand Hotel’s Wet Republic. This massive 53,000-square-foot ultra pool is so hip, J-Lo herself gives it high marks; it doesn’t get much better than this 1-word endorsement from La Lopez: “Crazy!” We’d have to concur: With 2 saltwater pools, 8 individual pools and spas, VIP bungalows, party cabanas, spacious daybeds, oversized deluxe chaise lounges and DJs rocking turntables with the hottest beats, this is one pool-party scene you won’t soon forget.
It’s hard not to feel like you’ve just pulled off the heist of a lifetime when you’re admiring the dancing fountains in front of the Bellagio in Las Vegas. But even if you haven’t, you’ll still feel like a millionaire when you waltz into the 18-foot-ceilinged lobby and catch a glimpse of its centerpiece -- the Fiori di Como, a chandelier made of 2,000 hand-blown glass blossoms. With its Mediterranean-inspired pool cabanas and 65,000-square-foot spa and salon, the Bellagio captures the elegance of its namesake town in Lake Como, Italy.
