There’s no city on Earth quite like Las Vegas, and if it’s luxurious pampering you’re looking for, coupled with some serious entertainment and the thrill and glamour of the casinos, it’s tough to beat. Here we’ll look at some of the high-end hotels, restaurants, casinos and – of course – spas that’ll make your trip to Sin City unforgettable.

The Cosmopolitan

One of the more spectacular hotel-casino complexes on the Las Vegas Strip is the Cosmopolitan, at 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard South. Despite recent reports concerning its imminent sale due to financial losses, visitors to this gleaming palace of fun are in for a unique and luxurious experience. The West End Penthouses are the jewel in the hotel’s crown, but for a slightly more affordable treat, have a look at the Wraparound Terrace Suites (pictured above.) There’s a fully stocked kitchen area and a huge private terrace, with a fabulous view of the Vegas skyline.

The Sahra & Estiatorio Milos

If you’re anything like me, the first thing you’ll do on arrival is visit the Sahra Spa and Hammam, a desert-inspired oasis of calm with a “monsoon cave”, natural rock walls and a Turkish bath. When you’re ready for some fun, all the games you’d expect are available in the plush casino, including roulette and baccarat as well as Pai Gow and Spanish 21.

There’s also a selection of superb restaurants at the Cosmopolitan. Celebrate a win at the tables with the Mediterranean cuisine at Estiatorio Milos, a Greek restaurant that’s one of the finest in the country – the fish is always superbly fresh.

The Wynn

Also consider a stay at the Wynn Las Vegas. It’s a huge, gold tinted monument to luxury, built in 2005, and encompasses 111,000 square feet of casino space, and over 2,700 hotel rooms. If you manage a big win at the roulette wheel, the Wynn has

its own Ferrari dealership, so you won’t need to travel far to spend it! World-class artworks are regularly displayed here, including pieces by Rembrandt, Gauguin and Cezanne. There’s a great spa with all the treatments you could want, and there are no less than 18 restaurants.


These days Vegas boasts some of the best restaurants in the world. Cut, at the Palazzo Hotel on the Strip, is an amazing-looking dining room with food to match. All the beef is prime corn-fed or grass-fed, but don’t leave without trying the oxtail broth; the starters and side dishes are wonderful, though the restaurant is mostly known for its fantastic steaks and chops. Enjoy!
