Seductive Las Vegas Gets Under Your Skin

Love is in the air with romantic dining, steamy spa encounters and cozy cabanas helping to set the mood.

Sexy neon, a 24-hour environment and hot nights combine to create some of the most steamy experiences in Las Vegas. Whether that means an intimate dinner for two in a private enclave, a spa treatment with a loved one for complete relaxation or cozying up in one of the fabulously cool, luxurious cabanas. Las Vegas’ most seductive experiences await. 

ROMANTIC DINING 

Carbone: Ask for one of Carbone’s romantic red velvet booths in the main dining room for privacy, then let the tuxedoed captains lead you through an Italian dinner. Carbone features mid-20th century hospitality with a touch of glamour and showmanship for a memorable night.  

Eiffel Tower Restaurant: Dine inside a replica of the Eiffel Tower, 11 stories above the Strip with a view of the Fountains at Bellagio. Try the Rossini-style filet mignon with foie gras and truffle sauce and then soak in the romance.  

Restaurant Guy Savoy: Request one of the patio tables for a view of the Eiffel Tower while dining on French chef Guy Savoy’s notable dishes. His artichoke and black truffle soup and “Colors of Caviar” put seduction at the forefront, while Fondant au Chocolat or Terrine de Pamplemousse sets the tone for the end of the meal. 

Picasso: Sit among original artwork and ceramic pieces from the restaurant’s namesake artist Pablo Picasso while chef Julian Serrano dazzles guests with the regional cuisine of Spain as well as France. Quail is a specialty at Picasso, as is the viewing of the Fountains at Bellagio. 

Costa Di Mare: Request one of the cabanas overlooking the serene lagoon and indulge in Mediterranean fish and seafood flown in daily from the Italian coast. Specialties such as Venetian soft-shell moleche, red shrimp from Naples and sea urchin from Sicily are just some of the interesting finds to enjoy together.  

Strip House: Set in a room splashed with red to mimic a bordello, this steakhouse features low romantic lighting to boot. Order Strip House’s dry-aged steak or one of the dishes meant to share, and save room for the 24-layer chocolate cake. 

Aureole: Charlie Palmer’s restaurant Aureole features a four-story wine tower with “wine angels” flying up and down to fetch bottles. The uber-romantic restaurant’s dishes pair well with the wine, the star of the show. 

GET SEDUCED WITH A SPA TREATMENT

Spa at Aria: Before even stepping foot into a treatment room, couples can relax together while they breathe in salt-infused air in the Shio Salt Room, relax on heated-stone Ganbanyoku beds, or spend time together in the spa’s co-ed balcony, all part of the amenities at the Spa at Aria

Canyon Ranch Spa + Fitness: The 134,000-square-foot Canyon Ranch features couples’ treatments in a ritual room. The Rasul chamber starts in a steam room for two, where couples can massage therapeutic mud on each other. 

Drift Spa: Get intimate at Drift Spa with a private candlelight aromatherapy bath, followed by seasonal sugar exfoliation and a hydrating 50-minute side-by-side massage. The city’s first co-ed hammam (Turkish steam bath) starts the relaxation off right. 

Well Spa + Salon: Go a little crazy with the Platinum painting party at Well Spa. The 120-minute treatment lets couples paint each other in a body scrub and detoxifying mud, followed by sideby-side Swedish massages. Champagne and juices provided. 

Costa del Sur Spa & Salon: The private party at Costa del Sur starts with a head-to-toe body scrub applied to each other in a private steam room, followed by painting your partner with detoxifying muds from around the world. Another option? The Honey Do’s, where couples scrub each other with Pure Fiji milk and honey scrub in a private Jacuzzi tub for two. Both come with 80- or 110-minute options.  

Salt Room LV: All massages come with a 45-minute session in the salt cave at Salt Room LV. Halotherapy, a drug-free holistic therapy in the salt cave may offer health benefits. Couples can share a 60- or 90-minute massage before relaxing and breathing in that salt chamber.  

COZY, COOL CABANAS 

Kaos: For couples who want a party with some privacy, the new day club at the Palms features 39 cabanas and bungalows, some with shared or private pools, along with a view of the 60-foot bronze sculpture by Damien Hirst entitled Demon With Bowl. All bungalows and cabanas come with self-controlled audio systems, televisions, misters and fans. Kaos has a roster of approximately 30 and-coming and top-name performing artists. 

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas: It’s the couples escape everyone needs. Request one of the bungalow/cabana experiences at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for three stories of privacy, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Marquee Dayclub pool scene and an infinity plunge pool. A third-floor terrace includes an outdoor kitchen and bar, while a 24-hour butler assists with any needs. 

Sky Villa at the Palms: The two-story, three-bedroom Sky Villa at the Palms provides a reclusive escape with a private pool on the Fantasy Tower’s 32nd floor that looks out at the Strip. Couples can nestle in the redwood cedar sauna, or head to the massage room, fitness room, pool table or a foosball table with crystal accents for some fun. A walk-in steam shower and jetted deep soaking pools round out the amenities. Call on the 24-hour butler for any additional needs. 

Delano Beach Club: Step into luxury and privacy at Delano Beach Club with its South Beach vibe and massive chess board in the middle of the pool. The cabanas surrounding the pool feature Janus et Cie furnishings, as well as cooling products such as Evian facial sprays and chilled towels. 

Wynn Pools: Enter one of the 45 candy-colored cabanas at Wynn Las Vegas for a little poolside privacy. Each features a sofa, dining table and chaise lounges. Those staying in Wynn’s Tower Suites have a private deck with two pools and second-story cabanas with their own balconies.
