If you haven’t already hit a Las Vegas pool chances are you will very soon. With temps already in the 100’s and pools sizzling with DJs, celebrities, bikini-clad ladies and plenty of fun your visit to a pool party this summer is certainly in your near future. And since you don’t want to hit the water without looking and feeling your best here are Best of Vegas’ top ways to get pool party ready in Vegas:
Hit the gym – Summer means less clothes, especially at the pool so if you want to make sure you are toned in all of the right places before donning that bathing suit you need to get fit. Getting in some exercise while on vacation is always tough but not when you stay at one of Las Vegas’ many resorts it’s a luxury. That’s because Las Vegas hotels like Wynn Las Vegas, The Palazzo, The Venetian, Bellagio, Caesars Palace and more offer state-of-the-art fitness centers with plenty amenities to leave you feeling toned and relaxed before your big pool party. It’s worth mentioning that not all gyms are created equal either. For instance, The Palazzo doesn’t just boast your standard gym equipment but features an indoor rock wall while The Venetian Resort offers Yoga and spinning classes on a regular basis and the Bellagio boasts its Pilates, cardio and body-sculpting classes.
Eat well – If you don’t want to blow what you just did at the gm with a hefty portion of pasta and bread there are several healthy Las Vegas restaurants and food options available to satisfy you and your waistline. A few Las Vegas restaurants where you won’t be tempted by unhealthy dishes include AquaKnox at The Venetian where seafood is the main dish; Canyon Ranch Grill at The Palazzo with such dishes as the “Healthy Elvis” a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich, kale chips, grass fed beef burgers and fresh fruit smoothies; Estiatorio Milos in The Cosmopolitan serves up heart healthy Mediterranean fare such as fresh line-caught fish, octopus, marinated peppers, lamb chops prime filet and more. We can’t talk about eating well without talking about drinking well. An easy way to swap calories while still enjoying that cocktail is to mix your vodka with juice instead of soda.
Relax – Get that glowing skin before you even step foot in the Las Vegas sun with a day at the spa. Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace, Spa Bellagio, The Spa at The Mirage, The Grand Spa at The MGM, Canyon Ranch Spa at The Venetian and The Spa at Monte Carlo have all been ranked as the best spas to relax and rejuvenate in Las Vegas. That’s because among their list of treatments are therapeutic massages, hydrotherapy baths, yoga, aromatherapy, hot and cold water therapy, saunas, steam rooms, chakra balancing, scrubs and so many more relaxing treatments.
If you follow even one of these lists you’re sure to be in for a sizzling and sexy pool season in Las Vegas.
