Modern, Minimalist Suite Above the Vegas Strip
From its six-story-high perch, the Palms Place's 50,000-square-foot pool offers a glimpse of the incandescent bustle of the Vegas Strip below. An oasis of waterfalls, stone gardens, and a fire pit as well as private rental cabanas and poolside libations beckon visitors, who also have the option to wade through the 2-acre Palms Pool & Bungalows on the ground level. Studio suites are elegantly accoutered crash pads that span 600 square feet, with twin 42-inch plasma televisions, a king-size bed fitted with Italian bedding by Mateo, wall-to-wall windows, and a contemporary kitchen.
Adjacent to the pool, celebrated chef Kerry Simon's eponymous eatery Simon Restaurant & Lounge boasts an elegant menu crafted from seasonal and organic ingredients. This celebrity hot spot’s floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Strip and Spring Mountains.
A weekend stay comes with daily access for two to either the Palms Spa, with its 20,000 square feet of saunas, whirlpools, Swiss showers, and fitness center, or the Palms Place Drift Spa & Salon, which houses the only Turkish bath in Vegas. The busy spa recommends lodgers book facials, massages, and body treatments, available for an additional charge, in advance.
On the 52nd floor of the resort’s Fantasy Tower, the direct-access pass included in the first package grants entrance to the glittery confines of the Palms Casino's Playboy Club. Gilded in a sumptuous setting of gold, glittering platinum, and black satin, the epicurean casino hosts rounds of roulette and bunny-brokered games of blackjack beside a flickering gas fireplace and sprawling vistas.
Las Vegas: The Ultimate Adult Playground
With its expansive cluster of sky-scraping hotels and endless neon, the Las Vegas Strip endures as a can't-miss spectacle. Despite Sin City’s reputation as a bastion of nonstop partying and excess, the area also unveils eclectic sights, outdoor adventures, and international cuisine to those who explore and venture off the beaten path. Located 17 miles west of the city, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area provides a serene natural setting to escape the nonstop chaos of the Strip with more than 30 miles of hiking trails and a 13-mile drive through the Mojave Desert and its crimson geological creations.
