As the convention and festival season continues to roll forward, many weekenders are still looking to soak up some sun in the beautiful desert oasis that is Las Vegas. With temperatures perfect for sunbathing, spending some time at the stunning Las Vegas resort pools is a must for some profound relaxation. We've rounded up ten of our favorites for you here to help you pick where to stay based on the pool scene.
The Best Resort Pools in Las Vegas
One of the most famous pool experiences in Las Vegas would have to be Mandalay Beach. The enormous space hosts an "aquatic playground" with a wave section, lazy river, multiple bars and even some shopping. You can book all of your seating options in advance (you really should) to avoid missing out. For a more elevated experience, adults can visit Moorea Beach Club for some "toptional" time or DAYLIGHT Beach Club for some club time in the water.
Bellagio Las Vegas
Escape to the Mediterranean when you visit the pool at Bellagio Las Vegas. The grounds are often used for weddings because the space is so stunning, so you can imagine how relaxing an afternoon could be spent here. Daybeds, Cabanas and lounge chairs are available to rent (you can book in advance online), and visitors can even arrange for poolside massages to maximize relaxation.
Resorts World Las Vegas
The newest and largest pool complex on the Las Vegas Strip arrived in July, and people have been buzzing about it ever since. You'll find seven different pools in the massive Resorts World Las Vegas complex, including Ayu Dayclub, the over 21 section that hosts resident DJs Tiesto and Zedd on select nights. The stunning Southeast Asian paradise decor will transport you to a soothing oasis unlike any the Strip has seen before.
For the ultimate relaxing pool experience, visit the deck at Park MGM. Since the property is often less crowded than others nearby, Park MGM sometimes feels like a hidden oasis—especially with the muted colors and tucked-away vibes. Book loungers, day beds, cabanas or even the Park Bungalow (perfect for group celebrations).
The complex at Caesars Palace is called the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis for a reason. The massive space hosts seven pools, 45 cabanas, 65 daybeds and swim-up blackjack for those who want to enjoy their games from the water. The space can get a bit crowded, so if you want to make sure you have a spot to relax, book your seats, daybeds or cabanas in advance. Qua Spa inside Caesars Palace offers massage options for guests too. For a bit of time away from the kids, visit Venus Pool + Lounge for an adults-only experience.
The Grand Pool Complex at MGM Grand is a family favorite for many visitors. Spots on the lazy river are often coveted, and guests frequently arrive super early just to get a place. It can be a bit of a trek depending on where you're coming from, but it's worth the walk. Seating options can (and should) be booked in advance. For the over-21 set that's looking for something a little more mature, Wet Republic is one of the most renowned dayclubs in all of Las Vegas.
The Mirage Las Vegas
A visit to the pool at The Mirage Las Vegas is like a vacation in itself. The calming atmosphere, waterfalls and lush plant life will make you feel like you've left Las Vegas and entered a tropical paradise. Seating and cabanas can be booked in advance, and you can lose yourself in the relaxing environment for a few hours. Bare Pool Lounge is also located inside the pool complex for guests over 21.
ARIA Las Vegas
With a central location right in the middle of all the action, ARIA Las Vegas provides a host of fantastic dining and entertainment options inside the resort itself and within a short walking distance. The pool complex is no exception, with three individual pools. Though lounge chairs are complimentary for hotel guests (on a first-come, first-served basis), visitors can reserve lounge chairs, daybeds and cabanas in advance online or over the phone at different price points. If you're in the mood for a more mature environment, try out LIQUID Lounge inside the ARIA Las Vegas pool complex.
Right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the pool at The Linq Hotel & Experience is perfectly central to everything in the area. A short trek from the entrance near Las Vegas Boulevard and the Linq Promenade, the pool is an excellent reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the casinos (and a great place to rest up for the night ahead).
Paris Las Vegas
Have you ever dreamt of sunbathing under the Eiffel Tower? Well, you can at Paris Las Vegas. The Pool á París feels like a French garden conveniently located on a rooftop below the Eiffel Tower. Book lounge chairs, daybeds, cabanas and even a Poolside French Villa for your afternoon and relax while marveling at the views of the charming French replicas.
