Park MGM Unveils New Experiences for Pool Season

Posted By : Chris Martin/ 41 0

To kick off Las Vegas’ sizzling pool season, Park MGM has unveiled a trifecta of pool experiences that transport guests to an oasis in the South of France.

In collaboration with MGM Resorts and Sydell Group, the pools are part of Monte Carlo’s $550 million transformation into the Park MGM and features lush landscaping with refined amenities where guests can gather, socialize and connect while basking in the sun.

Soak up the Good Vibes—Lively music and vibrant blooms accentuate the pools’ laidback vibes. Inspired by the countryside’s private gardens in the South of France, lush greenery and mature trees collectively define the three pool destinations and their distinct ambiances. The South Pool provides a heated spa pool while the East Pool offers the ideal setting for socializing and the North Pool—the largest of the tree—provides plenty of space to splash around. Each pool boasts Baja shelf seating, in-water swim-up shelves, and plush chaises.

Indulge in Poolside Bites—With three bars, guests can enjoy refreshing takes on classic poolside libations and bites with fun items such as craft beer buckets and a Frosé mixed with Bacardi Dragonberry rum and ripe strawberries. The approachable menu offers delights including a Tuna Poke Bowl made with spicy tuna, pickled carrot, and English cucumbers.

Kick Back and Relax in Comfort—Those who prefer to lounge in a private sanctuary can reserve one of the 12 private cabanas to indulge in deluxe amenities including a 55” LED television, misting system and ample social seating. Guests at the cabanas also have access to a special menu and a variety of beverages including large-format bottle service.   (Courtesy of MGM Resorts)

Sandals Resort coming to Tobago

Posted By : Chris Martin/ 119 0

Sandals Resorts International has signed a memorandum of understanding to build Sandals and Beaches resorts on Tobago, said chairman Butch Stewart.

It would be the company’s first resorts on the island, one half of the twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean. Stewart describes the resort site as “magnificent.”

“We look forward to being a part of the Tobago hotel community as it’s a place I have been interested in for 14 years. It’s an incredible island with warm people and they have a lovely hotel community,” said Stewart.

He also said, “We have been very comfortable dealing with the various officials on the island and look forward to what the future holds.” Sandals has been in negotiations with Tobago for more than a year. The Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association said, “The majority of our members welcome Sandals coming to Tobago because of the additional flights and increased destination marketing which it would provide.”

WHY LAS VEGAS?

Why not Las Vegas. Las Vegas is continuously evolving to keep new and exciting experiences and hotels available to our more than 42 million annual visitors coming back time and time again. Repeat visitors that keep coming back stand in amazement of how our city keeps changing. Las Vegas is truly unrivaled with what our city offers when it comes to headliner entertainment, celebrity chef dining, over the top nightlife and luxurious spas to name just a few. Not only does the “Las Vegas Strip” challenge the social conventions but you must check out the newly invigorated downtown Las Vegas with recently renovated properties like Downtown Grand and The D in addition to downtown attractions like The Mob Museum, The Neon Museum and the Slotzilla zipline that runs under the Fremont Street Experience canopy. Don’t forget the numerous national and state parks within a day’s trip of Las Vegas including Red Rock Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Valley of Fire. Lastly, who could pass up the chance to see the amazing man-made wonder of Hoover Dam, only a 30 minute drive from Las Vegas or the natural wonder of the Grand Canyon which can be an amazing helicopter tour experience as just one way to see this spectacle.

NEW HOTELS

Available in 2017 is the new 203 room Lucky Dragon Hotel, the first Las Vegas casino resort to deliver an authentic Asian lifestyle experience located on the north end of the Strip. The hotel features a nine-story hotel, 27,500-square-foot casino space, a pool designed to create an oasis garden escape and a Tea Garden with Las Vegas’ only tea sommelier. Additionally, Las Vegas welcomes its first W Hotel located at SLS Las Vegas’ former Lux Tower with a unique concept that’s unexpected and elevated with an intimate layout, secret entrances, private spaces and personalized Whatever/Whenever service. 2017 will mark the beginning of Monte Carlo’s $450 million transformation into a new property with a name change to Park MGM and boutique property NoMad Las Vegas which will occupy floors within Park MGM.

HEADLINER RESIDENCIES AND ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCES

On the entertainment front, Planet Hollywood will welcome Las Vegas’ newest resident The Backstreet Boys in March. Not only have the Backstreet Boys signed a multi-month residency in Las Vegas but headliners Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez will continue their multi-month residences at the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood as well. The Colosseum at Caesars Palace will continue to showcase multi-month residencies from Celine Dion, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Reba McEntire with Brooks & Dunn and Mariah Carey. The brand new 5,200 seat Park Theater at Monte Carlo recently just announced 2017 residencies from Cher, Bruno Mars and Ricky Martin. In the fall of 2017 Las Vegas will welcome our first professional sports team. The newest NHL team is the Vegas Golden Knights and will take the ice at the new state-of-the-art, 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena now open between New York-New York and Monte Carlo. The T-Mobile Arena not only is the home for the new NHL team but hosts several major concerts and other sporting events throughout 2017 like the Professional Bull Rider World Finals and UFC to artists like George Strait and Bon Jovi to name a few.
