For an unparalleled stay right in the heart of the Strip, choose the sophisticated Wynn Las Vegas. Beautifully designed, this exquisite hotel features spacious, luxurious accommodations paired with every possible convenience -- from top-notch entertainment and magnificent restaurants to an extraordinary spa and golf course. Plus, the hotel's elegant sister property, Encore, is interconnected, so its boutique-style facilities are just steps away.
Making a home at Wynn Las Vegas is "Le Rêve - The Dream," a sublime aquatic creation staged in a theater-in-the-round. In addition to jaw-dropping aerial acrobatics, feats that celebrate the strength of the human body and spectacularly choreographed dancing, the show utilizes unique props and elaborate special effects.
Restaurants at Wynn Las Vegas, such as Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare and La Cave (a wine and food hideaway designed by Steve Wynn and Michael Morton), include offerings from internationally celebrated chefs, such as Paul Bartolotta and Bill DeMarco. Many of the resort's star chefs, like David Walzog of SW Steakhouse, a restaurant known for its prime aged steaks and chops, live in Las Vegas. In fact, most nights Walzog can be found on-site in the kitchen where he loves to experiment with seasonal ingredients. Wing Lei features the mastery of chef Ming Yu, who gives a modern spin to the cuisine of early French-influenced Shanghai. Allegro, which prepares beloved Italian eats, is helmed by chef Enzo Febbraro.
For a more casual dining experience, The Buffet boasts 16 live-action exhibition cooking stations, and Zoozacrackers serves New York-style deli food. One facet that sets dining at Wynn Las Vegas apart from other hotels in town is that every restaurant on the property has added vegan items to their menus.
After a fine meal, the resort's nightlife offerings only heighten the pleasure factor. Tryst, with its secluded lagoon and sizeable dance floor, looks out at a cascading 90-foot-waterfall. Guests can enjoy another spectacular view while sipping cocktails at the bars situated on the casino or lake levels. This is where they'll glimpse the magical Lake of Dreams, which features nightly light, music and multimedia shows.
With its golden facade arching toward the sky, Wynn Las Vegas provides a unique fusion of nature and luxury. From the towering mountain at the front of the 217-acre resort to the stunning indoor atrium near the lobby, natural beauty and natural light permeate the property. Lagoons, waterfalls, terraced landscapes and skylights create a tranquil environment. Flowers bloom throughout, both living and as part of the design. Even the carpet in the 110,000-square-foot casino -- which has more than 1,900 slots, a 26-table poker room, a full array of tables games and a 195-seat race and sports book -- portrays a colorful and thematic flower pattern.
A gorgeously landscaped, expansive outdoor pool complex has two main pools, private cabanas, table games and a special terrace for group events. The Spa at Wynn Las Vegas was recently renovated, where guests can also enjoy a salon and fitness center. There's an 18-hole, 7,042-yard golf course designed by world-famous architect Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn behind the resort with breathtaking waterfalls, streams and a forest of trees.
The marriage of luxury and nature at Wynn Las Vegas does not end here. Guests ascending the 50-story hotel tower will discover rooms designed with floor-to-ceiling windows framing sweeping views of the Strip, the golf course or the lake and mountain. Room amenities include upscale European linens, flat-screen televisions in the living and bathroom areas, wireless internet access and more.
Nowhere else but at Wynn Las Vegas can a shopper leave the hotel with Manolo Blahniks and a brand new Ferrari. The Wynn Esplanade offers a unique shopping environment with designer boutiques including Chanel, Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta. The resort also houses the Penske Wynn Ferrari Maserati dealership and showroom.
Finally, a little known but distinguishing feature of Wynn Las Vegas (and Encore) is that the majority of its amenities -- from the restaurants, bars and nightclubs to the spa, golf course and numerous retail venues -- are owned and operated by Wynn Resorts. Run from top to bottom, this enables higher standards of service to be set. So the fine dining, swanky shops, rejuvenating spa and thriving nightclub are truly one-of-a-kind experiences here.
