Over-the-Top Suites, Las Vegas Style

When we’re all flocking to Vegas again, there will be plenty of impressive shows, restaurants and activities waiting for us. And if you’re looking for that over-the-top suite to stay in for your Sin City vacation, we’ve got you covered.

Some of our favorite accommodations in the city are the Aria Sky Suites at Aria Resort & Casino, the top option of which is the two-story, 3,370-square-foot Aria Sky Villa. This suite has 36-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing guests to take in the lights of The Strip and the mountains outlining the Las Vegas valley. Even Better: This Sky Villa features a massage room, private salon area, billiard room, exercise room, steam room, full kitchen and formal dining area.

Tip: This room, along with several other top villas, is not available online and is reserved exclusively for VIP guests.

Your luxury vacation starts before you even reach your room. Ensuring a discreet and convenient experience, Sky Villa guests receive unlimited transportation throughout their stay, including airport transfers, through an exclusive private porte-cochère entrance. 

Good to know: Guests staying in the Sky Villas have access to  24-hour butler service, who offer a multitude of services, ranging from drawing a bath or packing luggage to coordinating elaborate celebratory occasions, a romantic candlelit dinner or preferred dining and nightclub reservations; other options include in-room spa treatments, salon or barber treatments, or personal training on request.

If you want to take a dip, be sure to head to the Sky Pool, available only to guests staying in Sky Suites. Here, guests will find luxurious chaise lounges and upgraded robes and towels. 

Sky Suites guests also have access to a private lounge with non-alcoholic drinks and seasonal snacks.

The Aria Sky Villa has 3,370 square feet of space and comes with separate living and seating areas.

Luxury travel advisors should reach out to Bobbi Hart ([email protected]), director of luxury experiences; she can handle booking all amenities and experiences when a guest is booking a Sky Villa. Major holiday weekends and large-scale conventions and events throughout the year tend to create the most significant demand for high-end suites. Reservations for rooms and suites are recommended at least two months out.

A must in terms of dining is Salt & Ivy Café and Patio Bar, which opened in February 2020, serving California coastal cuisine. Be sure to request a table on the outdoor patio with views of the Aria poolscape. Another relatively new restaurant is Catch, which plates up Asian-influenced sushi, seafood and steak. For reservations, call 877-230-2742; it’s best to book 30 to 45 days in advance. 

For some over-the-top pampering, the Spa & Salon at Aria should do the trick. There are 62 treatment rooms but the three 800-square-foot spa suites (designed for couple’s treatments, bachelorette parties and small group events) are the way to go. There’s also a Shio Salt Room, a Fire Lounge for relaxing prior to and following treatments, what the hotel touts as country’s first Japanese Ganbanyoku Stone Beds, plus a co-ed balcony with an infinity-edge pool.

One of the most popular treatments is the Vichy Body Indulgence, a full-body exfoliation, performed under the warm, rain-like waters of the Vichy rain bar. Enjoy a facial pressure point, vitamin-infused massage, followed by a hydrating and cooling eye mask and finish your journey with a massage of the neck and décolleté. Another top pick is the Thai Fusion Massage, which blends Thai-Style stretching and a traditional Swedish massage.

The Presidential Suite at The Venetian Resort has remote-controlled drapes, lighting and music in the living area.

Another top option is the 6,000-square-foot Presidential Suite in The Palazzo Tower at The Venetian Resort. Renovated, along with all other suites in The Palazzo Tower, in 2018, the suite has fabulous, high-floor views from either three or four bedrooms (both options are the same size). Tip: The Presidential Suites are available in several variations, with select accommodation decked out with a balcony, a balcony with a Jacuzzi, media room, massage parlor or workout room. We understand that everyone has their own preference but that balcony with a Jacuzzi beckons us. 

Inside, a standout feature is the bathtub with views over Vegas and the mountains beyond. And, depending on the time of year you visit, the built-in fireplace will heat up even the chilliest of desert nights. Other in-room amenities include a living room with a Steinway & Sons piano, dining room, full bar and more.

Guests who book a signature suite, which includes the aforementioned Presidential Suite, receive customized experiences when working with the concierge team. Amenities include 24-hour butler service, limousine service to and from the airport, VIP concierge services, a cabana experience, gondola ride, complimentary access to TAO Nightclub for two and more. Sweet!

Don’t miss Majordōmo Meat & Fish, a modern steakhouse from chef David Chang. Opened in December 2019, the restaurant is built on the DNA of its James Beard-nominated sister restaurant in Los Angeles, which was named the “buzziest” dining room in L.A. by Eater. Majordōmo aims to provide a lively and engaging experience for guests. In addition to steaks, guests can expect a menu comprising other American favorites, Asian dishes and seafood. Favorites include Bing — a fluffy flatbread — served with a variety of toppings, including salty-sweet cultured butter and honey; rich Shaved Foie Gras; and Smoked Prime Rib. For bookings, contact Anna Hersel (anna.hersel@sands), director concierge services, The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. Be sure to book at least one day in advance. 

Good to know: At The Palazzo’s sister property, The Venetian, multiple Grammy Award-winner Tony Bennett will return for three nights as part of his “I Left My Heart in Las Vegas” engagement. Performing August 12, 14 and 15 at The Venetian Theatre, the 93-year-old Bennett will be celebrating 70 years of his recording career; he will be performing with special guest and daughter Antonia Bennett. Tickets are currently on sale. 

The Nobu Villa has modern Japanese-inspired design and the master bedroom has a private entrance to the Zen garden.

One last option for jetsetters is the Nobu Villa. Located at the world’s first Nobu Hotel, in collaboration between Nobu Hospitality and Caesars Palace, the exquisite three-bedroom, 10,300-square-foot villa, designed by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group, is the hotel’s only rooftop villa, offering impressive views of Las Vegas Boulevard. The price tag? $35,000 a night.

What can guests expect? The 4,700-square-foot sky deck has a fire and water feature, plus a full bar and barbecue pit with a Robatayaki grill, a dining area and a secluded Zen garden with an Italian-made, Japanese-inspired onsen tub. 

Indoors, additional standout amenities include a signature Omakase sushi bar, an ultramodern media and game room, gym and massage room, private elevator and art gallery. Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace touts that the villa even has its own scent: lemon-ginger. The master bedroom has a private entrance to the Zen garden. 

Insider secret: Recent celebrity guests of the Nobu Villa include Jennifer Lopez, Johnny Depp, Drake, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.

Guests arrive like a true VIP as complimentary round-trip airport limousine service is included in your reservation.

Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace’s three-bedroom 10,300-square-foot Nobu Villa is the hotel’s only rooftop villa.

If you’re staying at a Nobu Hotel, then culinary is top of mind. Nobu Restaurant & Lounge at Caesars Palace is the largest Nobu restaurant in the world with a dining area, lounge, sushi bar, central bar and private dining. Fun fact: It’s also the only Nobu in the U.S. to offer teppanyaki tables. Signature items include the Black Cod Miso, Rock Shrimp Tempura, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño and Squid “Pasta” — although it’s always hard to pass up A5 Japanese Wagyu Banquet. For dessert, do yourself a favor and order the Vanilla Miso Tart. Guests can also indulge in a selection of Japanese craft beer and whiskeys.

In all, the 182-room Nobu Hotel, a boutique hotel-with-a-hotel concept, offers 18 suites. Other standouts include the Hakone Suite, adorned with sleek furnishings and bold berry and gold accents; the Sake Suite, available in one or two bedrooms, which has a media room and a bar area (and a billiard table is available upon request); and, ranging from 2,200 to 4,350 square feet, the Nobu Penthouse offers the option of connecting up to five bedrooms. The Las Vegas suite has a curved staircase with a second-story terrace, a stone hearth wall and sleek furnishings like leather sofas. 

The Nobu Villa has its own lemon-ginger scent and custom music. Shown here is the master bathroom.

Nobu Hotel guests enjoy a bevy of perks, including private check-in, Natura Bisse luxury bath amenities and 24-hour access to the exclusive in-room dining menu curated by Nobu’s culinary team. Additionally, all Nobu Hotel guests can enjoy a complimentary cocktail along with a Nobu Hotel management team meet and greet at Nobu Socials, held on the 72nd floor lounge every Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
