Las Vegas’ 100 degrees-plus thermometer readings make an ironclad (or bikini clad, if you prefer) excuse to spend the day poolside. The resorts of Las Vegas have some of the most enticing pools found anywhere in the world and we’ll give you a close-up of 7 fascinating examples of them.
Mandalay Bay’s Mandalay Beach
This breath-taking, 11-acre aquatic wonderland transports you to the South Seas with 2,700 tons of white sand. There’s a wave pool where the waves can get up to as much as four feet, or you may prefer to go floating down the lazy river or relax at any of the three heated pools. Mandalay Beach features the enticing Moorea pool where it’s quite okay to lose your top.
Caesars Palace’s Garden Of The Gods
Each of the eight lavish pools featured in ‘the garden’ is named after a Roman god and most definitely meets their approval in terms of luxury. Fountains, waterfalls, giant columns and ornate statuary add to the theme. Cabanas, day beds and chaise lounge chairs abound, so take your pick – we’re really liking the tops-are-optional Venus pool and the sun-drenched Apollo.
Golden Nugget’s The Tank
What’s the grabber here? We could say the three-story water slide, but that’s only because it takes you right through the center of a shark-filled 200,000-gallon aquarium. Other serious “Wow!” worthy wet attractions include the opulent curved pool featuring two cascading waterfalls, and the two-story infinity pool of the adults-only Hideout.
Flamingo’s Beach Club Pool
The oldest resort on the Strip, certainly has no problems outshining some of the new kids on the block. A collection of exquisite flamingos, swans and ducks reside in the lush Wildlife Habitat next door to the family-friendly pool area. The lagoon shaped main pool delights children (and adults) with its maze of water slides winding through rocky caves, leading you to smaller terraced pools.
The Rio’s VooDoo Beach
VooDoo has completely nailed the tropical island paradise theme. From the palm trees and waterfalls to the cozy rock grottos hiding even cozier Jacuzzis, this gorgeous resort offers four distinct pools with something for everyone. The sand pool is a hands-down kids’ favorite, with its impressive real white sand beach. Older folks may find the flair bartenders and live DJ’s of The VooDoo pool more to their liking.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ Boulevard Pool
The resort’s east deck is the perfect setting for fun and frolic, or for just simply relaxing and letting the day go by. The elevated Boulevard Pool on the third floor boosts a striking view of other Strip resorts. When not sightseeing, there’s always table tennis and Foosball, or unwinding in any one of the hot tubs.
The Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa’s The Backyard.
We’re pretty certain your backyard doesn’t look quite like this. With its exclusive cabanas, interactive island fountain and first-class café, this three-acre spread is a true aquatic marvel. The main circular pool, the Sandbar, is generously complemented by wading pools, a beach, private pool areas and hot tubs.
