Shoutout to all those lovers out there finally getting that much-needed one-on-one time, and in Vegas no less! Ready for the ultimate romantic night (or day) out? Here’s what you should do so you can spend less time planning and more time with your sweetie.
Where to stay:
First things first, impress your S.O. with a suite at one of our most romantic and luxurious 5-star resorts. If you’re looking for the full Vegas experience, check in at SKYLOFTS at MGM Grand, or The Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace where fine dining, nightlife and more are all under the same roof. Hoping for a tranquil escape instead? Book a place to stay at Mandarin Oriental or Vdara for a peaceful non-gaming and non-smoking environment.
What to do:
Wine lovers will obsess with the Wine Cellar & Tasting Room (Rio), where you’ll find one of the country’s most impressive wine collections. If you’d rather have something a little stronger, grab a cocktail at Oak & Ivy inside Container Park. This DTLV hotspot is dedicated to classic mixology, so if you can’t decide what to order, their expert mixologists will craft up a custom drink for you.
Talk about romance. Experience the City of Love in Las Vegas with the Eiffel Tower Experience (Paris Las Vegas) as you get a dramatic view of the Bellagio Fountains from above. While you’re there, take the elevator down to dinner at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, one of the most notably romantic dinner spots.
Hand-crafted chocolates and amazing Vegas views? Sign us up. Take your date to the Chocolate Experience on High Roller (LINQ). The experience is led by an official Ethel M Chocolatier who has guests sample liqueur-infused chocolates paired with wine as they gaze down at The Strip from 500 feet above. This exclusive event is only available every Thursday from 5:00pm-8:30pm, so be sure to get your tickets in advance.
Head to the pool no matter the season thanks to Moorea Beach Club (Mandalay Bay). This private European-style pool offers poolside massages, tons of comfortable seating options, and more available year-round.
Where to eat:
There’s something oh so romantic about dining among the backdrop of the Bellagio Fountains. Lago by Julian Serrano (Bellagio) does just the trick. The James Beard Award-winning Chef’s idea is to “indulge without overdoing it” by serving small plates with an impeccable Italian focus. Get a view of the fountains from a different perspective at Mon Ami Gabi (Paris) that has become the go-to for dining with a view.
Head to The Cosmopolitan any time of day for an amazing dining experience. Touted as one of North America’s finest Greek restaurants, Estiatorio Milos is the perfect spot to slurp some aphrodisiac oysters. If you’re leaning more towards pasta, look no further than Scarpetta (Cosmopolitan). Created by celebrity chef and Chopped judge Scott Conant, you’ll be wowed by the earthy yet sophisticated Italian flavors he brings to the table.
Top of the World (Stratosphere) brings dining with a view to a whole new level. Situated on the 107th floor of the Stratosphere, you and your date will be surrounded by a 360-degree panoramic view of Las Vegas.
What to see:
Definitely check out a Cirque du Soleil show if you want to be transported to another world. Those interested in the provocative side of Cirque should pick the adults-only Zumanity (New York-New York)—it’s part burlesque, part cabaret, and one full night you won’t forget.
Explore Las Vegas’ premier exhibition space—the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (Bellagio) where great art goes on vacation. From Warhol to Picasso, the incredible pieces in the gallery are always changing.
When in Vegas, you have to catch one of our headliners. The new Park Theater (Monte Carlo) is where Cher, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Ricky Martin, and more are performing on the regular. If Broadway orchestra is more your style of entertainment, catch a show at The Smith Center (DTLV).
Where to relax:
Canyon Ranch SpaClub (Venetian) is where you and your S.O. can enjoy something on their special Two-by-Two menu. Try the Rasul ceremony, a cleansing treatment with rare muds and herbal steam inside a heated-tiled chamber.
The Twin Souls massage at QUA Baths & Spa (Caesars Palace) is another amazing treatment for those looking for a little romance. Lie side by side in a private suite and enjoy a body scrub and massage with your choice of oils to set the romantic tone.
Indulge in the Spa at Aria’s Couples Romance Package (Aria) for a true spa day. This four-hour package includes a hot stone massage or signature aromatherapy couples massage, couples face and body experience, a coconut milk bath for two, champagne and chocolate ganache, and a gift to commemorate your special day
Relax and enjoy tea time at the serene Tea Lounge (Mandarin Oriental) on the 32nd floor. They have a wide selection of the finest teas in the world, English scones, macaroons, and more—all while enjoying an amazing view of The Strip.
The options for luxury and romance are truly endless in Las Vegas. You and your love will go home having a one-of-a-kind experience that will stay with you both forever. And now that you’ve got the rundown on the ultimate romantic vacation, it’s time to pack your bags…Vegas is calling.
