Take a Break From the Real World: The Stunning Palms Hotel Pools.
Despite being located off the beaten strip, The Palms Hotel and Resort has gained a lot of popularity since opening in 2001, especially with the younger Vegas crowd. This might have something to do with the hotel being the home for the 2002 members of MTV’s popular Real World series. Three separate towers hold some of the most luxurious and unique hotel suites in the world, including the 2 story Sky Villa which rumor has it will only set you back $35,000 a night. Not bad for the privilege of 24 hour butler service and your own glass elevator.
What really sets the Palms apart is the two acre swimming pool area. With enough space for 3,000 people plus 3 main bars and 3 separate pools this is the ultimate setting for a Las Vegas pool party.
Ditch Fridays is the theme for The Palms Hotel beach club scene. Known for taking the concept to a louder, livelier and stronger level, Ditch Fridays has become a favorite Friday beach destination for Vegas locals and visitors. The cost of a cabana at the Palms will be between $1000 to $3000 Minimue Spend and a daybed about $750. The menu offered makes it easy to hit that minimum with both food and drinks.
The drink menu at the palms features a full range of alcohol to appease all tastes and budgets. If your entourage is into tequila shots, a bottle of Patron Silver will cost you $475 with all the shot fixings, or you can shell out $1,075 for a bottle of Patron Platinum. After the second round they all taste the same anyway.
The Palms hotel will also host other pool parties with world class music and hosts during the season, but on its off days it serves as the perfect relaxation destination for guests of the hotel. With cascading waterfalls and umbrella covered daybeds, the Palms Pool is a luxurious retreat. You can spend an entire afternoon basking in the Vegas sun, dipping in the cool pools and enjoying treats from their specialty menu.
The bar offers $40 pitchers of specialty drinks like raspberry mojitos or a Miami passion. Or cool down with a frozen daiquiri made with Flor De Cana 4 year old silver rum. There is also a full range of beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks to choose from.
So long as you are in a cabana or on a daybed feel free to order food off of the Palms Pool + Beach Menu. Nosh on fruit salad or mixed olives for $5 or treat yourself to a $14 shrimp cocktail. You can also enjoy a full lunch poolside at the Palms including salads that start at $8 along with a choice of mouth watering burgers, sandwiches and wraps.
Whether you are hot to trot to Ditch Fridays, or want to spend a weekday away from the Vegas madness, the pools at the Palms Resort have it all.
