Daily deal: Two nights in Las Vegas
Marvel at the bright cityscape from your Strip-view suite at the Vdara Hotel & Spa.
Vegas is all about finding the perfect balance between luxury and debauchery.
If you bet it all on either end of the Sin City spectrum, you're sure to lose your shirt — whether you sell it off your back to pay for the overprice room, or you have a run-in with Mike Tyson's tiger.
This week's escape delivers the perfect blend of first-class accommodations and night time diversions, beginning at the Vdara Hotel and Spa, where for two weekday nights ($217), you'll be ensconced in a deluxe suite with a pool or Strip view at this non-gaming, non-smoking, eco-friendly, all-suite atmosphere that promotes decadence over depravity.
This boutique retreat offers a sensational setting in the Strip's newest urban community, CityCenter, a mind-blowing modern marvel of fine living and awe-inspiring architecture that BBC Travel calls "the Strip's most luxurious offering to date".
Overlook sunning honeys at the pool or sashayers on the Strip from your deluxe suite, with its deliciously fluffy king-size bed, full-blown media hub, convenient kitchenette, dining table for two and large spa-style soaking tub.
Get pampered with Vdara's botanically boosted beauty treatments, its adjacent champagne bar, and the six poolside cabanas offered exclusively to spa goers. And while your lodging's emphasis on green (it's received a LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council and a 5 Green Key rating) won't save you from losing yours next door at Aria Casino, at least you won't have to feel guilty about the environment, too.
Then, add some late-night spice to your sweet Vegas vacay with two tickets to the Sip Happens - A Night of Exotic Tastes tour from Nite Tours. The crawl includes access to two of the city's hottest ultra lounges for two-for-one drinks, plus VIP entry to two of the city's top nightclubs—cover paid. Guests will have their own VIP host throughout the night for an unforgettable experience with plenty of interactive games, comedy, contests and Las Vegas trivia.
And if you want to add a little natural recreation to round out your mini-break, rent Harleys and take a scenic rumble around Red Rock Canyon for a radiant sunset. If you can stand more eye-popping action, end your desert excursion with the pelvic-thrusting acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil's Viva Elvis extravaganza.
This exclusive escape is a truly sustainable way to party in Vegas.
