In the hot Mojave Desert, discover dancing fountains, mind-blowing shows and the highest level of luxury on neon-lit holidays to Las Vegas

Expect grand statements around every corner from the moment you step onto the iconic Strip to the second you’re in a gondola sailing down a reincarnation of Venice. Enter a parallel universe of Cirque de Soelil performers and A-list entertainers in residency; award-winning chefs torching flames at your table with exquisite flambé and Showstopper dancers fluff their feathers over sequined leotards. The beat goes on long into the night and the atmosphere is always electric on holidays to Las Vegas.

There’s that floor-to-ceiling view over the neon-lit Strip as you wake up in an oversized bed, a spellbinding descent into the Grand Canyon by helicopter, and moonlit strolls under the whimsical lights of the dancing Bellagio Fountains. Look up and you’ll see early morning yoga on the world’s highest Ferris wheel and come evening you can dine in Michelin-star restaurants under million-dollar chandeliers. 

Kitsch Elvis impersonators and heady casinos are all part of the Las Vegas holiday fun, but for every flamboyant cliché there’s also a stylish counterpart – billionaire mega clubs with mixologists whipping up foam cocktails, velvet covered lounge bars housing sumptuous sofas on marble floors and crystalline malls packed with luxury stores. There’s nothing beige or bland here – even the museums are full to capacity with mobster history, Titanic relics and beat-up stunt cars from iconic movies. If it all gets a bit much, slink off to your decadent hotel spa to breathe in detoxifying Shio salts or sneak away to a private pool cabana with Champagne on ice, likely encased in a solid gold bucket.

  • There are so many shows on offer here ranging from the gravity-defying Cirque du Soleil performances to A-list entertainers in residence
  • No matter your tastes there will be plenty of restaurants that will suit you, alongside numerous bars and nightclubs
  • If you seek a break from the city then a trip to the Grand Canyon by helicopter or coach is a must – why not hire a car and spend a night or two on the South Rim?
  • It’s not all about the Strip – Downtown Las Vegas is where it all began. It’s a little less polished than the famed Strip yet is going through something of a renaissance
  • Las Vegas is most likely the only place in the world that you can be walked down the aisle – and serenaded – by an Elvis impersonator, or head out to the Grand or Red Rock canyons for your special day

If you’re planning on seeing a show make sure to check out the stands dotted around the Strip, either inside the hotels or on the main walkways, which offer discounted seats and dinner offers.

Most of the hotels offer some kind of free entertainment to draw people in, the best ones are the Bellagio fountains which you can’t miss as they perform so regularly but other shows such as the Sirens at Treasure Island, the volcano at The Mirage or the Gods at Caesars all happen at specific times of the day so make sure you plan those into your schedule.
