My travels took me to all the way to Las Vegas, Nevada where I had the pleasure of staying at the luxurious Wynn Las Vegas.
The experience begin at the exclusive private entrance for the Tower Suites — the hotel’s luxury resort accommodations. I found the private registration area by way of a magestic atrium adorned with colorful mosaic walkways, lush greenery and koi fish ponds.
Entering the Salon Suite foyer, I had to resist the urge to relax — there was a private massage room waiting for me!
The suite itself, high up on the 33rd floor, boasted an incredible view of the Las Vegas strip. But, the view wasn’t the best part of the room. The chic living area was a great entertaining space because of the wet bar and dining area. Off the bedroom was a huge marble bathroom and dressing area. And, of course, all of the art in the room was from Steve Wynn’s personal collection.
One of the best things about Wynn Las Vegas is the shopping. There are literally dozens of designer shops there. You can even visit one of the highest grossing Ferrari boutiques in the world.
In fact, you never actually have to leave the hotel because there’s an endless amount of entertainment, from golf at the only course on the Strip, to the Casino, to seeing Le Rêvein the hotel’s intimate aqua theatre.
But the real question, of course, is the nightlife. How was it? Incredible! There’s a lot of ways to spend your evening in style. You can enjoy a cocktail at one of the lounges, or be seen at the 12,000 square foot Tryst nightclub…but, after a night out and a full day of shopping, I chose to escape to the Spa for the Good Luck Ritual Massage, one of the Wynn Las Vegas’ signature treatments.
After that, it was off to dinner. The elegant dining room at the Bartolotta leads down a marble staircase with a view of the lagoon outside. The seafood is flown in daily from the Mediterranean and it is brought to your table for you to view while the waiter explains the expansive menu.
They’re all about customizing your meal to your tastes and desires. It’s quite a production. I ended up having the Sicilian langoustines, seared sea scallops and a delightful vegetable risotto.
If all of this isn’t enough, Wynn is opening a new signature resort on Dec. 22, 2008: Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. I had a great experience at the Wynn, and can’t wait for my next Vegas excursion.
