You don’t have to be royalty to play, party and sleep like a prince or princess in Las Vegas. The city is home to some of the most outrageously over-the-top hotel rooms in the world, hitting a peak of decadence and flashiness in the top-end suites. We’ve selected a few of our favourite high rollin’ Sin City playrooms…
Our hands down winner has to be the Kingpin Bowling Fantasy Hotel Suite at Palms Casino Resort (pictured above). Not only does the accommodation come with its very own regulation-sized twin lane bowling alley, there’s also a pool table and a cinema-sized projection TV. All this plus two bedrooms, three bathrooms and a full bar. And did we mention there’s room for 100 of your friends?
If that’s not girly enough for you, then you might want to opt for the Barbie Suite instead. And if you’re the sort of gal for whom a ‘pink-themed’ hen-do is the ultimate dream come true, there’s no finer place to have a last pre-marital shindig than here. Get ready in front of the sunburst mirror made from 65 Barbie dolls and take a soak in the extra-large Jacuzzi. Then visit the full bar to mix some cocktails for up to 50 of your friends.
Located away from the main drag, and with views of both the Strip and Red Rock Canyon, the One-Eighty Suite at Red Rock Casino Resort offers the most unbeatable views in the city. For entertaining, there’s a huge living room – with 108-inch plasma TV and sofa that seats around 16 guests – as well as a pool table and pantry with sub zero fridge. Best of all though, is the magnificent terrace, with large circular Jacuzzi, cocktail bar with seating for four and a custom-built couch that rotates.
If you want to follow in the footsteps of a certain young prince, book a stay at one of the most exclusive hotels in town. Wynn Las Vegas is well known for the flamboyant touches of billionaire owner Steve Wynn, and replicas from his personal art collection subtly line the walls of his suites, including a Picasso lithograph in the Parlor Suite. For the most amount of expansive living accommodation, the Salon Suite is the one to book. Survey the scene from behind the semi-circular marble wet bar, or pop into the adjoining powder room to freshen up before a night on the town. No need to worry about getting a good nights sleep – all rooms come with a signature ‘Wynn Dream Bed’, available to purchase for a cool $5k.
For the ultimate Las Vegas party trip, head straight to Virgin Holidays who can book the tailor made Las Vegas holiday of your dreams.
