In Las Vegas, there is a haven for women of every style; a place for the party animals, the adventure-seekers and the ladies who enjoy the finer things in life, but still want to live it up Sin City-style. With a wide variety of offerings, Las Vegas allows all women to let their hair down in style:
Slumber like a queen: Vegas visitors in the know have discovered Vdara Hotel & Spa, a non-gaming, non-smoking oasis in the heart of The Strip. While only a short walk from iconic resorts Bellagio, ARIA and Monte Carlo, Vdara offers a secluded sanctuary for those who want a retreat from the energy of Sin City, but still close enough to get to anything your heart desires. Within the walls of this luxurious getaway are incredible hidden gems that will turn a Vegas vacation into a one-of-a-kind experience, and the boutique and intimate feel is perfect for a girls weekend of freedom.
Cheers! Just a short walk out Vdara’s front door, you can begin the ultimate girls’ getaway with a stop at ARIA’s Lobby Bar. Here you’ll find a fascinating, rare collection of champagnes for the Five Diamond resort. The chic lobby bar offers an unparalleled collection of Special Club champagne from France’s most elite wineries, offering a lavish way to kick off a girl’s weekend.
Spahhh: With VIP services and a vast selection of more than 60 personalized treatments, The Spa & Salon at ARIA is a hidden sanctuary in the heart of the desert. The deluxe Spa Suites suit small groups for chic relaxation, from hot stone massages and innovative facials to reflexology and aromatherapy. Each suite is complete with a calming lounge area and specialty cocktail menu. Did someone say mimosas? Or head to ESPA at Vdara where you can enter the spa oasis with global skincare industry leader, ESPA at its first ESPA branded spa experience on the West Coast. The staff is extensively trained and does a pre-treatment analysis to determine which body oil will best suit each individual guest’s desired result from the massage.
Crystals is a girl’s best friend: Hardworking women deserve a little retail therapy at The Shops at Crystals, the country’s only shopping destination dedicated exclusively to luxury brands. Fashionistas can break away from the congested outlet malls and reward themselves with the hottest products from Stella McCartney and Donna Karan, or unlock their inner 50 Shades of Grey with seductive lingerie from Kiki de Montparnasse.
Don’t leave without seeing a show: Cirque du Soleil weaves an aquatic tapestry of artistry, surrealism and theatrical romance in the timeless production, “O.” The international cast of world-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and characters perform in, on, and above water to create a breathtaking experience in a magnificent theatre reminiscent of a European opera house. For the more risqué, walk The Strip or catch a cab to the Excalibur for Thunder from Down Under. It’s the PERFECT Girl’s Night Outback! Australia’s HOTTEST exports hit an intimate Vegas stage every night of the week showing off chiseled bodies, seductive dance routines, cheeky humor and boy-next-door charm that you won’t be able to resist!
Start your night off right: Whether you want a drink to sip on to start the night or looking for a laidback, yet upbeat place to relax for the evening, Las Vegas has you covered. Head down from your room at Vdara to VICE VERSA. Bringing two different worlds together, Vice Versa offers an innovative menu that pays homage to its name. The “vice” side of the menu includes classic cocktails and traditional pub food, while the “versa” side seves up twists on the classics with more innovative cocktails and inventive small plates. Vice Versa creates a sophisticated environment and features an outdoor patio with cozy seating and fire pits. Just a short walk away at ARIA is the intimate ALIBI Cocktail Lounge, which offers a high-energy experience without the debauchery of the cliché Sin City nightlife scene. Located in the heart of the ARIA casino floor, ladies can enjoy an array of libations in a luxurious setting, ideal for any rendezvous.
Party the Night Away: What’s a girl trip without some dancing? In just a year, Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand has cemented itself as one of the most legendary nightclubs to ever hit The Strip. The club is a mind blowing 80,000 square feet and holds residencies for most marquee names in electronic music. You’ll get to experience the upbeat party atmosphere that only superstar DJs can provide. Let loose and dance the night away!
Ladies who brunch: Who doesn’t like to brunch? After opening at Bellagio in April with its highly talked about Italian small plates, Lago by Julian Serrano is now serving lunch and Sunday brunch, featuring both à la carte and prix-fixe options. Chef Serrano’s first-ever brunch experience will be complemented by unparalleled views of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio. Get a little taste of France in Las Vegas at BARDOT Brasserie. Chef Michael Mina’s new French restaurant at ARIA Resort & Casino, impresses with délicieux brunch experience every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. where guests can indulge in decadent dishes such as Lobster Croissant Benedict and Brioche French Toast with vanilla mascarpone while enjoying rosé wine and avant-garde brunch cocktails. Both Lago and BARDOT also make for quintessential dinner spots if you can’t decide between the two.
Exercise the mind and body: It may be vacation, but some ladies like to still get that workout in. The typical morning walk is taken to a new level during ARIA’s unique Indoor Hike. The tour, complete with a personal trainer and intense workouts, leads participants through ARIA’s extensive $40 million fine art collection. In to Yoga? Get over to Monte Carlo for Yoga in the Plaza on Saturday morning, an hour-long class taking place in the recently remodelled plaza entrance of Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. For those adventure-seekers, you can take advantage of Yoga Among the Dolphins at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage, which allows guests a rare opportunity to engage the mind and body in the underwater dolphin viewing area, where a serene setting encourages balance and harmony. Afterwards you can watch the playful lion cubs, mesmerising tigers and graceful leopards throughout the garden.
With a commitment to sophisticated, upbeat luxury and an all-around good time, Las Vegas invites women to enjoy the finer things in life with sensational experiences that’ll leave friends and husbands at home envious of the ultimate Vegas vacation.
