A lot about Las Vegas screams luxe. While not necessarily known for calming, natural solitude like Costa Rica, Las Vegas remains a popular destination for its unabashed opulence. Visitors across the city are greeted with bright lights, glamorous casinos, and decadent activities.
While it can be hard to distinguish the cream of the Las Vegas crop, for the high-rolling tourists, here are three of the most luxurious places in Sin City:
Wynn Hotel and Casino
Having only opened in 2005, the Wynn Hotel and Casino is comparatively younger than its counterparts on the list. Nevertheless, it has quickly become one of the top hotels in the world. From entertainment and nightlife to luxury shopping, the Wynn has won several awards including the most Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star awards worldwide.
Being a high-rolling casino, the Wynn also hosts one of the best Las Vegas poker rooms on the Strip. Stylish and luxurious, Wynn’s poker room hosts low and mid-stake tournaments and has arguably the best-looking poker room you can step into.
Aside from the grand decor, the Wynn is also the first Las Vegas casino to use RFID technology in its poker rooms to prevent chip counterfeiting.
The Wynn’s Encore Theater has also hosted several superstars. In 2009, the Wynn hosted a sold-out Beyoncé tour. Apart from this, their theater has been the venue of numerous Tony Award-winning shows, including a production show set in a 1 million-gallon water-oriented theater called Le Rêve.
Internationally renowned casino resort The Bellagio is a must-visit for travelers looking for an aesthetic and glamorous experience. Built in 1998, The Bellagio has been heavily featured in the media for decades.
Case in point, if the name sounds familiar, it’s because it was the main setting for the star-studded 2001 casino heist film Ocean’s Eleven. Meanwhile, the resort’s towering fountains have become a beloved Las Vegas landmark.
A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, The Bellagio was the first hotel-casino to win the AAA Five Diamond Award and the only hotel in the US to have two Five Diamond restaurants. If you’re after the ultimate fine-dining experience, notable restaurants in The Bellagio include Picasso and Le Cirque.
This year, to welcome the fall season, The Bellagio Conservatory recently debuted its Artfully Autumn display which features 20 feet tall arches and waterfall drops to add to its already luxurious vibe.
After opening in May 1999, The Venetian quickly became the prime example of casino extravagance. Guests can enjoy the Venetian experience of indoor canals and gondolas because of its vast and detailed recreation of Venice, Italy.
The Venetian-Palazzo complex also includes the world’s second-largest hotel with 4,049 rooms. Because this is Vegas, a 120,000-square-foot casino is also part of the package. Without a doubt, its Venice-inspired design makes The Venetian one of the more romantic hotel resorts on The Strip.
Aside from a shopping complex and its massive convention center, The Venetian is also known for its dining concepts. Recently, the hotel hosted a once-in-a-lifetime food tasting featuring world-class chefs including a two Michelin-starred chef.
Whether you’re looking to pamper yourself in high-end spas or have an internationally acclaimed cuisine experience, The Venetian is a Las Vegas experience you want on your travel list.
