World Class Pools to Relax and Refresh at!

“Daylife” pool parties in Vegas have exploded in the last few years, but sun worshipers who prefer a more relaxing environment have plenty of world-class pools to choose from. So pull up a lounge chair and order some champagne – this side of the Vegas pool scene is about relaxing and refreshing. Consider taking a look before you book, as most pools are for guests only and not every pool is open year round.

Lounge chairs at Strip pools are traditionally first come, first serve, but Aria lets its guests reserve ahead of time online. Once there, four sprawling pool areas (2 pools for regular hotel guests, one pool for Sky Suites guests, and a pool area at Liquid dayclub) offer everything from hot tubs and gorgeous shaded areas, to state-of-the-art cabanas and plenty of places to soak in the hot desert rays. Accompanied children are allowed, and raft rentals are available.

2. Bamboo Pool – The Cosmo

The Cosmopolitan offers three pools, including the lush Bamboo for pool fans who prefer lounge music to house music – or who are simply recovering from the previous day’s festivities. While there, indulge in a poolside yoga class or chair massage. Open to hotel guests only (non-hotel guests may party at Marquee Dayclub), this pool also offers coffee in the morning, and cocktails from stunning teak bars in the afternoon.

3. The Beach at Mandalay Bay

The 11-acre Beach at Mandalay Bay brings the California coast to the desert of Nevada. The wave pool rocks waves up to six feet, as sunbathers tan on 2,700 tons of real California sand. Not staying at the hotel? Check the schedule for its outdoor concert series (March through October) that’s open to the public.

4. Cypress Pool – Bellagio

Cypress Pool, inside the Pool at Bellagio (think citrus trees and Mediterranean tiling), is so private that every one of the 65 lounges (plus two daybeds) has its own host to attend to the hotel guest’s every need. Throughout the day, expect to be served cool-down treats like frozen fruit, smoothies, and Evian misters, plus food and cocktails made to order.

5. Jupiter Pool – Caesars

The most relaxing corner of the famous Garden of the Gods pool at Caesars Palace, the Jupiter Pool is a quiet escape in an otherwise lively resort. Relax in a cabana, daybed, or chaise lounge with other like-minded resort guests. If you perk up, consider heading next door to the Fortuna Pool for a hand of swim-up blackjack.

    Hi Abby, I’m coming to Vegas in June to marry. I’m looking for a more relaxing hotel with good sun bathing areas that’s not too silly priced. Any ideas?
