Where To Stay for a Vegas bachelorette party
Las Vegas is a no-brainer when it comes to hosting a bachelorette party. Right from amazing places to stay, to retail therapy to award winning spas and restaurants, day clubs, nightclubs, great bars - Vegas has it all. The best part is, it is all centered around the Strip so you don't have to travel too far.
How to narrow down on your choice
Las Vegas is mostly about the nightlife and you want to be well-rested and in high-spirits, so you have to keep your days light.
A good hotel is the best option in Las Vegas. Considering that you will be in Vegas for the weekend, and would like to minimize getting-around town time, a hotel will ensure you have everything on your itinerary under one roof. You will find plenty of cheap hotels in Las Vegas but if you're looking to spending a day by the pool, or catching a show or relaxing in a spa, it makes sense to spend a little bit more and book a good hotel.
A room is a good option for small groups of 2-3 people. For larger groups, a suite might be a worthy investment. It's a great way to relax and prepare for the night ahead, or maybe even throw in an in-suite spa day. In fact, considering the perks like VIP check-ins, priority access, airport round trip or complimentary breakfast that you get with a lot of Vegas suites, it might not even be that steep!
Get a suite
I know so many people argue whether it is worth it to get a suite for their bachelor/ bachelorette party and I always yes. If there's one place one earth that you should splurge on a suite, it is Vegas.
The Venetian is a favorite in Las Vegas and it is easy to see why. For one, the Venetian and the Palazzo enjoy a central location on the Strip making it close to all the action. Ladies seeking a last night of crazy partying need not even leave the hotel because The Venetian is home to Tao, one of the best nightclubs in Vegas. Your bachelorette party crew will also be able enjoying a day at the enormous Canyon Ranch Spa that fitness classes, a 40 ft. climbing wall, and even has a bridal lounge! The Prima Suite at The Venetian for example literally has it all - 1,500 sq. ft. of space that is steeped in luxury, excellent views of the Strip, separate living and dining rooms, a full-sized bar and an exquisite Italian marble bathroom.
Another great option is the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. It's gorgeous, extravagant, (almost) never-ending, excessive, and breath-taking: which is everything your Las Vegas bachelorette party should be! Take the Encore Apartment for example. The suite is 3,475 sq. ft., stylish, spacious and comes with a host of amenities tailor-made for the bride-to-be who appreciates a good pre-wedding pampered vacation. With the suite, you get your own massage room, butler service, and separate living and dining areas with a wet bar. All that and the suite still retains a luxuriously intimate feel.
If you're a big group of say 6 or 8, and don't want to go all out and splurge on multiple suites or even a single 3 bedroom suite, you could book a suite with connecting rooms. You can do this by calling up the hotel and asking for options or even checking online for third part websites that offer suite booking. For example, the Parlor Suite with connecting 2 Queen bedroom, which, among other things, has 3 beds, 2 bathrooms, a whirlpool tub and a spacious seating area for 8 - which is a great way to save some money and enjoy the suite life!
Caesars Palace is another obvious choice. While the ever popular Hangover suite (which is actually the Forum Emperor's Suite) is always in demand for bachelor/bachelorette parties, Caesars has so many suites to choose from. Or, for a classier stay, you can host your bachelorette party in a suite at Nobu Las Vegas, following which, you will be crowned the queen of all bachelorette parties! Suites at Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace is slightly different from your typical Las Vegas hotel suites in its design and feel- the decor is tastefully done to appeal to a refined taste, but the luxury is evident no matter where you look.
Hit the pool(s)
The major difference between investing in a good Las Vegas hotel room as opposed to staying in a vacation rental is the pool. Pools in Las Vegas are some of the best you will ever see - and is all about DJs, day clubs, cabanas and poolside cocktails.
The Bellagio pools are a haven for groups who aren't looking for crowded parties and need some private time. The garden-pool-courtyard area of the Bellagio is only for hotel guests, is all paid, and includes a personal host who will see to it that you're given water, smoothie shots and chilled towels.
The multi-level Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a family-friendly pool that is adults-only for special events. It offers views of the Strip and features daybeds for poolside relaxation. The pool is open to non-guests with an entry fee.
Another pool that is open to public is the Palms Casino Resort pool that often see a young, party-crazy, up-for-dancing crowd. Fridays are probably the most crowded as the pool is the venue for 'Ditch Fridays' with live DJ performances.
The Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis at Caesars Palace is as heavenly as its name with serene waterfalls and classic Roman statues. The pool is open to public with an entry fee from Friday through Sunday and is the only pool on the Strip with swim-up blackjack. The Venus Pool Club is adults-only.
Enjoy a spa day
Bachelorette party is the perfect excuse for the girls to get together and enjoy a spa day. It also makes perfect sense to relax and rejuvenate before a night of crazy partying. The activities you plan for your bachelorette party can help you decide where you want to stay. Is spa-day your thing? Consider these places:
Las Vegas is home to some of the best, award-winning spas in the world like the Spa at Encore where your group will be treated like queens in the Asian-inspired luxury abode. Whether you choose to hit the spa after you land in Vegas to forget the work back home or to cure that hangover before you head back home, the healing touches of their experienced therapists will work its magic.
Bachelorette parties staying at the ARIA have the chance to experience the 80,000 sq. ft. sanctum, The Spa and Salon at ARIA. They even offer a The Spa Suite Party Package for parties of up to 10 guests.
A popular destination for spa mavens is the QUA Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace where many spa activities are modeled after Roman rituals like herbal steam and Jacuzzi. The spa menu offers a range of therapies including Hydrotherapy and Vichy Shower.
Or, if you're staying in a luxury suite, chances are your bathroom itself has a jacuzzi or spa-like deep soaking tub. Check for suites or rooms with a private massage room and avail an in-suite massage service for a girl's day in!
Dance the night away
Of course, the corner stone of the quintessential Vegas experience - hitting the nightclubs for a last night of unplugged partying. While you can hit these clubs no matter where you stay, some hotel guests get access privileges and priority entrance to some nightclubs, so choose your stay wisely!
- Marquee at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a both a nightclub and day club. Chic, bohemian and risqué Marquee is where you head to dance to a DJ playing house music. You can also take some time off in the warm, secluded hideout, 'The Library'.
- Omnia Nightclub is one of the hottest nightclubs in Las Vegas starting with an enormous chandelier that hangs in the center of the room. The place is addictive and you will see a high-energy crowd that's ready to dance the night away.
- Drai's is again one of those places that you can spend the whole day, that is, if you're one of those super humans who have the energy for it! The rooftop day club transforms to a nightclub and lounge by night offering great music, cocktails and spectacular views of the Strip.
