The utterly extravagant Wynn Las Vegas sets the standard for five-star opulence, in a city where extravagance is the norm. Setting out to offer its guests the best-of-everything experience, the hotel is a magnet for high rollers and jet-setters, and for everyone who just wants to feel like one. Winner of a myriad awards, this show-stopper of a resort, with its timeless style and design, crystallises all the glitz of Las Vegas within its glamorous space.
Behind the massive curving coppery-gold exterior, the emphasis is all on natural beauty, from the towering pine-topped mountain at the front, or the entryway decked with thousands of blooms, to the breathtaking atriums filled with flowers and trees. At the centre is the incredible Lake of Dreams, with over 1,500 trees, a 40-foot waterfall, and 4,000 colour-changing lights and stunning holographs, creating a multimedia sensory experience like no other. The dazzling water and light presentations begin at dusk, and can be enjoyed from various vantage points around the lake, including the show terrace, and from lounge bars including Tryst, and Parasol Down, reached via the circular escalator from Parasol Up.
The shows can also be enjoyed from several of the vast range of restaurants, including the open-front Lakeside Restaurant, or the fine-dining SW Steakhouse, an American beef restaurant with French influences. Many have won awards, including Michelin-starred Wing Lei, a French-influenced Chinese-fusion restaurant, and the romantic seafood restaurant Bartolotta, where diners can sit outside in private cabanas, enjoying catches flown in from the Mediterranean. For casual dining, The Buffet has 16 live-action cooking stations, while the signature restaurant Tableau nestles within the Tower Suites, and the Country Club overlooks the golf course and its own waterfall.
The main pool, with its pretty bridge, is a huge complex, surrounded by evergreen trees creating romantic nooks. At the enchanting circular Aqua Theatre, guests are captivated by Cirque du Soleil’s music spectacular Le Rêve or The Dream, and the gorgeous Esplanade offers almost limitless upscale boutique shopping. The unique casino, with canopies, columned pavilions, and lampshades over every table, creates an oasis that defies casino conventions.
