Las Vegas is famous for its vibrant casinos, extravagant entertainment and fine dining. But it is also becoming known for something else: swimming pools. Sure, the party pool scene is hot, and there’s nothing wrong with a private cabana stocked with Jaegermeister and a poolside dance party. But for some, it’s less about the scene and more about the scenery. And after a night out, there’s no better way to recover than luxuriating in the sun next to a crystalline pool. Whether it’s a lush tropical oasis or a sleek modern infinity pool overlooking the Strip, the city is swimming in luxurious pools.
Step out onto your balcony at Caesars Palace and prepare to have your jaw drop at the spectacular marble-floored pools below. Waterfalls and statues worked for the Romans, so why not modern-day Vegas? There are eight pools, but it’s the recently renovated Gardens of the Gods Pool Oasis, which is surrounded by majestic columns, lavish fountains and classically inspired landscaping, that will make you feel like an emperor.
Ocean waves without the threat of sharks? Sign us up. The Mandalay Bay pool is the one that everyone wants to sneak into, and who could blame them? Three pristine pools make up a giant tropical playground with an actual sandy beach and real waves up to 6 feet high. As if that weren’t enough, there is a lazy river running through it all, perfect for tubing.
