Las Vegas Luxuries You Just Can’t Miss

Las Vegas Luxuries You Just Cant Miss

Las Vegas, once synonymous with hedonistic behavior, has re branded itself, this time as a mecca for those wanting the lavish experiences once reserved for high rollers.  Fine dining, world-class entertainment, lavish spas, and extravagant shopping are all available to the average traveler – for a price.  So, whether you are a first timer or an experienced Vegas veteran, here are some luxurious experiences you won’t want to miss on your next trip to Sin City.

Dine

The days of the inexpensive, all-you-can-eat Vegas buffet are long gone and a gourmet diner’s paradise has sprouted up in its place.  The world’s best chefs have restaurants on the strip, making it easy to sample cuisine from around the world during your stay.  There are new restaurants opening all the time, so even frequent Vegas visitors can have a fresh dining experience each time they come.  Joel Robuchon at the MGM grand is Vegas’ highest rated restaurant with a three Michelin star rating, with a six-course tasting menu that is world renowned.

Relax

If all the gambling, dining, and entertainment are making you think you might need a vacation after your vacation, you should book an appointment at one of Las Vegas’ signature spas.  All the major resorts have their own, featuring creative and luxurious ways to relieve stress and rejuvenate tired travelers.  From traditional massage to herbal baths, saunas to salt caves, everyone is sure to find a way to unwind.

After your spa treatment, take the time to enjoy Vegas’ gorgeous weather out by your resort’s pool.  Rooftop pools, wave pools, lazy rivers . . . Las Vegas resorts have them all.  For a true VIP experience rent a private cabana with a flat screen TV, private restroom, and wet bar.

Stay

Las Vegas Stay

It is easy to stay in the lap of luxury without straying far from the famous Strip.  While Strip hotels can feel crowded, with inattentive service, there are several boutique hotels within the larger casino campuses that can provide both the amenities and service a luxury seeking traveler requires.   Hotels such as the Mansion or the Cromwell feature separate entrances, check-ins, and cab lines for VIP guests.  Most include limo transfers to and from the airport and a champagne happy hour.  These smaller hotels often allow guests use of the pool, spa, and fitness center at their larger hotel partners, giving you the best of both worlds.

Play

We all know Las Vegas is known for it’s gambling.  But there are lots of other ways to spend your money beyond the blackjack table or the slot machine.  When it comes to live shows, Las Vegas does it up in style! Where else can you see magicians, comedians, recording artists, and Broadway productions all in one location?    Add in a half dozen opportunities to see Cirque du Soleil’s unique brand of entertainment, and your options are practically endless.   Treat yourself to the best seats in the house for an unforgettable night.

If live shows aren’t your thing, Vegas still has you covered.  Take a ride on the High Roller Ferris wheel and see the strip from above.  You can even reserve a cabin with an open bar and sip a cocktail or two as you view the sites.   Adrenaline junkies can ride roller coasters, go skydiving, or even tour the Grand Canyon by helicopter.

If Hollywood celebrity sightings and famous DJs are more your style, Las Vegas is also home to the hottest clubs.  Spring for bottle service to have the true luxury experience.  Be sure to dress to impress.  When it comes to Vegas nightlife, you want to dress like a VIP to be treated as one.  For the most extravagant experience, check out XS nightclub at the Wynn, home of the $10,000 cocktail.

When visiting Vegas, a world of luxurious experiences is available to the sophisticated traveler.  What will you put on your next Vegas to-do list?
