Beach clubs, concerts -- Vegas redefines the pool scene
From party cabanas to concerts to the world's best DJs, Las Vegas has redefined and reinvented the pool experience (again). And, since summer in Vegas starts and ends longer than the rest of the country, you've got that much longer to enjoy the most lavish pools you'll find anywhere.
The newest addition to the ultra-pool experience in Las Vegas is the Boulevard Pool at Cosmopolitan Resort. Overlooking the Strip, the multilevel, open-air environment provides unobstructed sightlines in all directions, upbeat music, intimately spaced lounge chairs and daybeds, and a vibrant social scene with live musical performances to movies playing on the marquee. For a quieter, more relaxing day, enjoy the Bamboo Pool -- it's a soothing canyon-like environment with spa services, yoga and Pilates sessions.
You'll be swimming in luxury at Wet Republic, a 53,000-square-foot ultra-pool at MGM Grand, which features the only two saltwater pools on the Strip. Celebrity DJs keep the beat going on a daily basis! Enjoy European-style sunbathing at Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay and get rid of those pesky tan lines, or enjoy access to the private pavilion for guests 21 and older.
Encore Beach Club at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas opened for the season on April 16! This 60,000-square-foot paradise includes 26 cabanas outfitted with refrigerators and flat-screen televisions along with the exclusivity and opulence of eight bungalows, all with amazing views of Las Vegas. Guests at Encore or Wynn can also have the option of enjoy the sophisticated and alluring elegance of the hotel pools nestled deeper in the property far from the commotion of daylife' parties.
Other great pool parties can be found at TAO Beach, on the roof of TAO Nightclub at The Venetian, and at the Palms Pool & Bungalows. This year, the Palms Resort hosted MTV's Spring Break -- and even after the cameras leave, guests can still experience the latest and greatest Palms excitement! For a unique pool experience, try the Golden Nugget Downtown, where you can whisk down a three-story waterslide, straight through a 200,000-gallon shark tank!
It's not always about the daytime party though. Relax in a serene atmosphere by the lake at a hidden lagoon with white sand beaches.
