Pure Luxury on the Las Vegas Strip - Where to Go?

Whether you are wealthy and expect your surroundings to be luxurious, or you are enjoying that precious vacation of a lifetime, a wedding anniversary or eagerly awaited honeymoon, or you just feel like experiencing the refinement of an upper-end hotel, pure luxury is a commodity that is readily available on the Las Vegas Strip. Interestingly, Vegas hotels compete to be the most extravagant. Thus, pure luxury on The Strip is more the norm than a rarity.

Moreover, "pure luxury" generally refers to more than "luxury". It is the next level of luxe. While luxury is elegant and sumptuous, pure luxury is rich, posh, grandiose, refined, even ostentatious and pretentious. Fragrant air wafting with the scents of expensive leathers, Italian marble, crystal chandeliers, carved wood furniture, and masterful artwork. Plus, do not forget the service, as twenty-four hour personal butlers, and ensuite maid service are equally as important to pure luxury on The Strip. Given these characteristics, there are certainly several venues on The Las Vegas Strip that qualify as pure luxury.

As the only Five Star, Five Diamond resort in Las Vegas and the only "destination casino resort in the world to receive the Mobil 5 Star, AAA 5 Diamond and Michelin 5 Red Pavilions awards", there can be no question that Wynn Tower Suites and Wynn Las Vegas set the standard for pure luxury on The Las Vegas Strip. Take the following amenities for example:

  • in-suite massage, manicure, pedicure and hair styling
  • soaking tub and TV in bathroom
  • wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass windows
  • controls for the curtains and lights beside the bed
  • ensuite office equipment if requested
  • private, gated entrance
  • forty-five spa treatment rooms
  • rooms overlooking the eighteen-hole, architect-designed, golf course

Although the published nightly rates do not necessarily suggest pure luxury because they seem less expensive than one would expect, another fine example, nonetheless, is The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino, home to The Strip's Lamborghini dealership. When admission fees are charged to see a car showroom, you know the location is pure luxury! But in regards to the hotel, the most expensive suites, the Palazzo Concierge Siena, offer:

  • packing and unpacking service
  • breakfast in the morning, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres in the evening
  • electronics and safe
  • Italian marble foyer
  • powder room
  • dining area for four, office area with fax, copier, printer and wireless internet
  • remote control curtains
  • water closet (toilet) with telephone

Indeed, these brief references are not the only examples of pure luxury on The Strip. Other fine hotels offer just as luxurious suites and rooms.
