A trip to Sin City is an experience like no other. The dazzling gambling mecca offers an array of casinos, resorts, spas, shops, restaurants, and entertainment. From premium spa rooms to world-class fine dining, there is something for everyone in Las Vegas.
With high rolling guests flocking to the 4.2 mile Strip, competition is stiff for casino resorts. Here are a few that stand out:
The Venetian Resort is themed after Renaissance Italy and offers luxury beyond measure in its magnificent suites. The hotel has an impressive 120,000 square foot casino, spa, top restaurants and live shows. Its replica canal and motorized gondolas add to the atmosphere, while its spacious suites are nearly double the size of a standard Las Vegas room. The hotel is also home to the Drai’s nightclub and a beautiful rooftop pool. It is an ideal destination for those who want to gamble and party at the same time. This hotel is known for its excellent service and beautiful rooms.
Monaco, the tiny principality on the French Riviera, oozes class and glamor. Aside from its mythical casino and the world-famous Grand Prix circuit, you’ll find high-end shopping, exquisite gastronomy and luxury hotels in abundance.
The opulent Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort is the place to be in this part of Europe for refined leisure. From the moment you drive up to its creamy-carved façade, uniformed doormen and marble pillars you’ll be transported to another time.
The Hermitage Hotel Monte Carlo is an old-world beauty that offers a touch of insider luxury, located on the street behind its more famous sibling. Guests here can enjoy top cuisine at the four restaurants under the direction of Michelin starred chefs and indulge in spa Thermes de la Société’s deluxe homage to wellness.
With glitzy yachts and glamourous nightlife, Ibiza has long been a magnet for upscale travelers. But beyond a hedonistic surface, the White Isle continues to evolve with sought-after wellness offerings, world-renowned cuisine and coveted shopping experiences.
The southeastern island of Ibiza—Eivissa in Catalan—is known for its clubs like Pacha, Amnesia and Privilege that draw thousands of dance music fans each year. But Ibiza also has a serene side with pristine beaches and picturesque towns.
The all-suite luxury resort 7Pines is a tranquil oasis on the island’s west coast. Guests can soak up the mediterranean sun in the hotel’s large pool and take in the dramatic sea views from their own private terraces or deep tub. The resort’s calming ambiance also draws families. Kids can explore the resort’s nature trails or visit the nearby hippie markets and historic sites. In the evening, guests can take in Ibiza’s famed sunset at Platja d’en Bossa, a long beach lined with restaurants and bars.
Macau is a gambling mecca and playground for Asia’s high rollers. Since it was returned to Chinese rule in 1999, the economy has boomed with tourism and gambling as the major components. Gambling revenues even surpassed Las Vegas’s in recent years.
A number of luxury casino resorts have opened in the region, including the second-largest land casino, City of Dreams. The massive hotel and casino complex features dazzling restaurants, gondola rides, shopping malls and swimming pools, all in an Asian setting.
Outside of the opulent casinos, visitors can stroll around Macau’s old Portuguese neighborhoods with their church ruins and cobbled streets. The UNESCO-listed Historic Centre of Macau is filled with churches, gardens and awe-inspiring buildings and reflects four centuries of Portuguese colonial influence. It is also home to a number of prestigious museums, hilltop forts and ancient Buddhist temples.
