It might be the No. 1 question asked when booking a hotel room anywhere: Is there a pool? Not to worry, Vegas has that covered. More than covered. Whether through unique designs or unparalleled service, resorts around the Valley take the pool experience to the next level. Here’s a quartet of the newest or most recently updated pool offerings around town tailored for different staycation vibes.
Resorts World (rwlasvegas.com) provides plenty of options, with five different pools winding through an expansive complex. The adult-only Athena Infinity Ultra Pool tops the list, claiming to be one of the largest elevated pools on the Strip, complete with unique views. A bungalow at Athena comes equipped with a misting fan, couches and other furnishings, a TV, an audio system and a fridge.
Stadium Swim echoes the palatial grandiosity of the rest of Circa (circalasvegas.com), with a 4,000-capacity rooftop “pool amphitheater” beneath towering 135-foot LED screens. The versatile space hosts sports watch parties, pool lounging and concerts. In each tier, different pools are heated to different temperatures, ranging from 78 to 104 degrees, depending on the weather.
The sandy beaches, Mediterranean accents and modern desert theme of the resort pool at Virgin Hotels (virginhotelslv.com) makes it the great place to get a party started. The adjacent Kassi Beach House offers a posh dining experience that easily transitions into a daybed or cabana experience with a full food and beverage menu.
The classically rejuvenated Sahara (saharalasvegas.com) has three eclectic pools—the Alexandria and Retro pools, both on the rooftop, and Azilo Ultra Pool. The 400-capacity Alexandria boasts a view of the surrounding city and mountains, while the discrete Retro provides a relaxing swimming and sunbathing setting. At Azilo, a luxurious outdoor poolscape combines with a 240-foot LED wall and an energetic indoor lounge.
