Las Vegas is known for its opulence, thanks to the mega-resort hotels that have cropped up on the strip ever since The Mirage first opened its doors in 1989. Since that date, not all that long ago, the level of luxury available on the strip has grown exponentially. The most recent of these mega-resort hotels to have been built is the Wynn Hotel, complete with its own golf course and Ferrari/Maserati dealership. Built at a cost of US$2.7 billion, it was the largest privately-funded construction project in the U.S.
Although the 5 Diamond Award-winning Wynn Hotel is one of the more desirable properties on the strip, there is no shortage extravagant accommodations in Las Vegas. For example, Steve Wynn’s previous property The Bellagio offers the Villa One Suite for $6,000 a night. This private Villa offers two bedrooms, a private dining room, private gym and its own private entryway through a secret tunnel. Each villa features its own secret garden and the 130-person staff help make your stay a memorable one.
The Venetian Hotel offers the Presidential Suite to high rollers who gamble 6-8 million per night and $150,000 per hand. Baccarat seems to be the game of choice for guests of this suite. Although this suite seems to be reserved for only the biggest whales, If you aren’t a big gambler you can opt in for the Chairman Suite for $15,000 a night. This suite features a mosaic tile entryway, trickling fountain and oriental artifacts may make you feel transported to another era, but the room’s 27 televisions, karaoke room, beauty salon, spa and gym are all state-of-the-art. You also get your own private butler who is available at your beck and call, your own cleaning service, in-room spa service for emergency facial or collagen injections, and the promise of a hotel staff that will do just about anything to make you happy (as long as it is legal, of course.) A Guggenheim Art Museum offers guests of the Venetian many pieces of fine art by masters like Picasso, Van Gogh, Manet and more.
Just off the main casino floor of Caesar’s Palace, past a private guarded entrance, an elevator takes invited guests to the Artemis & Neptune Villas. These indoor mansions are available to casino-invited guests only, and each villa includes its own golf simulator.
If your idea of luxury is to have premium white glove service, the perhaps the MGM Skylofts are your cup of tea. For between $800 – $10,000 a night depending on the date and other factors, you can rent one of these one, two or three bedroom suites that can be as large as 6,000 square feet with 24-foot-high ceilings. The MGM Skylofts come with unparalleled service including a butler unpacking and packing service, in which your butler will press your outfits and polish your shoes without being asked. Other services include airport transfer in a Mercedes Mayback 62, a steam room in every bedroom, and exclusive VIP restaurant + entertainment privileges.
The Four Seasons Suites which take up the top five floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel offer a more refined and subdued setting for those guests who prefer to escape the bright lights and party atmosphere of the Las Vegas Strip. Why not retreat to the Four Seasons’ Presidential Suite which features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer expansive views of a wide-open desert panorama, rather than the strip’s bright lights for $3,000 per night? The four-star, five-diamond hotel offers tranquility and comfort in this one-bedroom suite, which is outfitted with a baby grand piano, a deep soaking whirlpool tub and even an espresso maker.
From subdued to over-the-top, The Palms Hotel offers several themed rooms including Las Vegas’ most expensive publicized suite. At $40,000 per night, the 10,000-square-foot Hugh Hefner Suite offers a unique experience that can only be found in Vegas.
As far as the outrageously expensive Wynn Hotel is concerned, some of the more extravagant suites in this hotel are only available to casino guests and little information is available as to just how luxurious these accommodations actually are. However, if you’d rather not drop a rather large fortune in the casino to find out, you can rent a Fairway Villa at the Wynn which is available for $2,500 a night and offers cream-colored upholstered walls, rain shower and hand-blown glass sinks, plasma TVs, his-and-hers bathrooms, and an unparalleled view of the the Wynn’s beautiful 18-hole golf course in a 3,000 square foot suite. Sounds like a deal.
