The Five Most Glamorous Pools in Las Vegas
The Las Vegas pool scene is getting splashier all the time.
It wasn't long ago that it was dominated by toddlers wearing inflatable floatation devices and teenagers doing their splashiest cannonballs next to your rickety metal lounger. But over the last five years, Vegas resorts have created an adult oasis of glamorous pools and beach clubs that rival most of America's actual beach resorts.
From the margarita-induced chicken fight of the Hard Rock Hotel to the beach club of Mandalay Bay, here are our picks for summer's best poolside hotspots.
Where: MGM Grand
When to Go: Weekend concert series
Where: Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino
When to Go: Midweek afternoons It's Vegas' version of the South of France. On a concrete terrace off Mandalay Bay's wave pool, this beach club offers Tahitian styling for long afternoons in the desert sun. With a never-ending beat of electronic dance music, a bustling lounge offers minimalist décor, low-flung red loungers and a be-seen crowd of well-sculpted singles pounding high-end mixes of Grey Goose. Moorea Beach Club offers all-day revolving DJs and cocktail service by one of Vegas' sexiest pool staffs. Tao Beach
Where: Venetian Hotel and Casino
When to Go: Sunset session on Sundays from 5 p.m. Buddha meets bikinis at the rooftop pool and lounge spinoff of Venetian's Tao. The adult-theme pool complex includes a full-service restaurant, VIP Lounge and outside terrace with strip views. A smaller-than-expected pool is surrounded by stylish wooden loungers of sprawling singles in colorful board shorts and string bikinis.
|Tao Beach Chaises|
Where: Mirage Hotel and Casino
When to Go: Best on weekends Vegas' only pool scene operated by an actual nightclub, Bare is a pool lounge and "beach" club by Light Group -- owners of Bank and Caramel Lounge. The intimate pool and lounge deliver a tropical vibe of towering palm trees, orangey fabrics and teak cabanas that mix Asian and South Florida design. A crowd of Mirage guests and bikini-clad goddesses descend on the pool lounge for all-day DJ mixes from 11 a.m. till 7 p.m.
