There’s no question that Las Vegas is a mecca of luxury and opulence in the Nevada desert. But with so many elegant resorts to choose from, how can you decide where to stay? The Palazzo at the Venetian Resort could be your winner. The updated and modernized twin to The Venetian, The Palazzo offers a modern color palette and sleek, resplendent decor, catering to a hip and fashionable crowd.
Romantic, Ethereal Entryway and Opulent Rooms
The Palazzo’s lobby and atrium are full of elegant touches: waterfalls and flower gardens, and stunning art installations which add to the sumptuous feel of the resort. Each room at The Palazzo is a suite nearly double the size of other similar hotel rooms in Las Vegas, with a separate sunken living room space and a large Roman soaking tub in the decadent Italian marble bathroom. It represents the ultimate in indulgent comfort and relaxation.
Prestige at The Palazzo
Guests at The Palazzo also have the option of upgrading their stay to The Prestige at The Palazzo, a club-level floor giving guests access to the exclusive Prestige Lounge located 23 floors above the Las Vegas Strip, a private Prosecco check-in, a daily continental breakfast, access to complimentary hot and cold appetizers each evening, an evening cocktail reception with complimentary alcoholic drinks and many more luxurious benefits. Guests can also reserve a private function space with a spectacular view of the Las Vegas Strip, for an additional charge, for personal or business activities.
Soaking Up The Vegas Sun
If you’re looking to spend a day soaking up the sunshine, be sure to check out the property’s elegant pools. With lush landscaping and elegant fountains, the pools of the resort evoke their Italian seaside influences. Guests of either resort can visit pools at The Venetian and The Palazzo, since the two sister towers are connected by the Venetian Grand Canal and shops. There is a multitude of different sized pools available, and you can even rent a cabana for the ultimate private, luxury escape.
Looking for more luxury time? Book a treatment at the Canyon Ranch spa + fitness, one of the world’s largest day spas. At more than 134,000 square feet, you’re sure to find something to make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
Shop In Style At The Grand Canal Shoppes
No trip to The Venetian is complete without a visit to the Grand Canal Shoppes. A premier Las Vegas destination for luxury shopping, the Shoppes not only feature more than 160 stores and numerous luxury brands but also transport guests to the piazza in Venice, Italy. Guests can stroll along cobblestone walkways and gaze up at the painted blue sky with drifting clouds. The Grand Canal runs through the center of the Shoppes for a quarter-mile, where guests can indulge in a fun and relaxing ride on an authentic Venetian gondola. Your trip won’t be complete without one!
Sumptuous Vegas Dining at LAVO Italian Restaurant and SUSHISAMBA
The Grand Canal Shoppes are also home to some of the best dining in Las Vegas; with different cuisines, it’s easy to find something for everyone to enjoy. Two of the best are LAVO Italian Restaurant and SUSHISAMBA.
SUSHISAMBA has a unique menu offering a blend of Peruvian, Brazilian, and Japanese culinary influences. Unique fusion dishes share the stage with traditional offerings from these different food worlds, including traditional Japanese sushi and tempura, Brazilian churrasco and Peruvian anticuchos. The restaurant surrounds guests with brilliant curving lines of color and video screens that bring the energy of Carnaval to the Vegas Strip.
LAVO is part restaurant, part lounge,and is known for its party atmosphere. The decor evokes Mediterranean bath houses in the southern part of Italy, and its menu is loaded with Italian classics and uniquely Vegas-style showstoppers, like the one pound Wagyu beef meatball featured on the dinner menu.
