Do you remember how it felt to fall in love? Those crazy weeks of wide-eyed wonder are hard to beat. But they’re also hard to sustain. The stresses and strains of daily life can take their toll on even the strongest relationship. That’s why you and your lover deserve some playtime – to reconnect with one another, and to get back to the things that truly matter.
Whatever your wishes and whims, Las Vegas is your one-stop spot for romance. So hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen. Below are four once-in-a-lifetime weekends that are sure to fan the flames of passion.
1. Embrace the wow factor
Do you feel like some heart-pounding Vegas views would give your love life a boost? If so, check yourself into a deluxe panoramic corner-view room at Wynn Las Vegas: The floor-to-ceiling valley vistas are unsurpassable. After ogling the sunset with your one and only, you can feast on Mediterranean Blue Rock Lobster at Costa di Mare, the property’s lavish seafood restaurant; then swing next door to Tower Suites Bar for live piano music and a glass or two of Dom Pérignon. Still hungry for excitement? Hire a limo and whisk your significant other to High Roller at The LINQ Hotel + Experience, the world’s highest observation wheel. The city views are out of this world, especially at night, and you can even rent your own private pod if you plan on professing your undying love.
2. Escape to paradise
Sometimes, peace and quiet is all we need to reinvigorate our relationship – and maybe just a little five-star pampering. If this sounds like your ticket to heaven, try a suite at the tranquil, casino-free Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. Start with a Cliffhanger (vodka, elderflower liqueur, cucumber, mint, lime) at Skybar; then spoil your loved one with a well-earned champagne dinner at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, a French restaurant with superlative views of the Strip. Then pay a visit to the award-winning Waldorf Astoria Spa for The Art of Romance, a blissful couple’s aromatherapy massage. If you can tear yourselves away from all that high-class rest and relaxation, why not take an epically romantic moonlight stroll to the Fountains of Bellagio? Or skip out of the city on a Pink Jeep tour of nearby Valley of Fire State Park? The hallucinogenic desert landscape is guaranteed to take your partner’s breath away.
3. Dance to the music
When was the last time the two of you danced together until the small hours? If it’s been a while, never fear. There’s no better place to recapture that dance-floor magic than The Cromwell. The hotel’s 2,000-capacity, multilevel, rooftop nightclub, Drai’s, attracts international DJs and hip-hop artists all year-round. Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent have all recently graced the stage. And upcoming residencies include A-Trak, TroyBoi, Dada Life and GTA. Clubbers are spoiled for choice in Las Vegas, with scores of world-class venues all across the city. After Drai’s, you can choose to make musical memories at Marquee at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, or dance yourselves into a frenzy at OMNIA at Caesars Palace.
4. Relive the dream
Congratulations! You’ve been together for quite a while. But could now be the time to renew your vows? If you both feel the urge to celebrate your love with friends and family, The Venetian offers a renewal package, including roses, champagne, a personal event planner, and a professional photographer to capture every precious moment of your special day. Enjoy the ceremony in the garden, the chapel, or even the white wedding gondola. Otherwise, hop on over to Caesars Palace and invite your guests to join you for a champagne toast in the palm-fringed Venus Garden. Afterward, don’t forget to treat your lover to the Nobu Zen Couple’s Ritual at Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace; there’s no better way to rekindle your romance.
