Top Luxury Experiences You Must Have In Las Vegas

Las Vegas is known for its non-stop nightlife and is thought of as the partying capital of the world but it's also a city for top luxury experiences, from helicopter rides over the Grand Canyon, to eating at the top of the Stratosphere in a revolving restaurant. Here is my guide to the top luxury experiences you must have in Las Vegas. 

See the Grand Canyon in style



Rather than take a four-hour drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, instead take a helicopter flight over for a bird's eye view. We were picked up in a stretch limousine from our hotel, to be taken to the helicopter port, then before we knew it we were whisked up into the air for a tremendous view of the Las Vegas strip, then over the Hoover Dam.

On touchdown, we had some time to take photos and then we were treated to a champagne picnic. This trip with Sundance Helicopters was a perfect and luxurious way to see the Grand Canyon especially when short on time.

Eat at a 'top restaurant' 


Las Vegas is known for its fabulous top class restaurants and Joel Robuchon is one of the top restaurants in the world. This three Michelin star restaurant in the MGM Grand hotel has unforgettable food in a luxurious Art Deco townhouse complete with a lush garden terrace and marble floors. The food is beautifully presented and simply astounding.

For a meal with a view check out the Top Of The World restaurant 800 feet above the Las Vegas strip. Within The Stratosphere Hotel, the restaurant slowly revolves and has a jaw-dropping view whilst the food is pricey but fabulous quality - check out the amazing filet mignon steak with a red wine reduction that just melts in the mouth or the sublime lobster Thermador with crab. Perfection on a plate!

Take a gondola ride

Take a romantic gondola ride through the Venetian hotel to transport you back to Italy and the Venice canals. Be serenaded by the gondolier in his best operatic voice and don't forget the Italian tradition of kissing under each bridge for good luck. It's a surreal experience as the skyline is artificial but looks like a blue sky with real clouds.

If you want to pop the question to your other half, the gondoliers are experts at making moments special so be sure to let them know before you get on.

Drive a supercar into the desert



For the ultimate rush why not drive a supercar through the desert?  Choose a luxury car such as a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Porsche, go through the safety briefing and then put your foot down for some laps on the track. When you are confident let them know and you could drive your fast car through the desert and then floor it - safely of course! 

Mr W enjoyed this ultimate bucket list wish, which is certainly one unforgettable experience for you speed freaks out there.

Max out your credit card at the luxury shops



Las Vegas is known for its luxury shopping, so to be sure to bring your credit card when you visit with plenty of credit! The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace has Gucci, Christian Louboutin and Cartier whilst the shops at Via Bellagio have Prada, Chanel and Tiffany and Co. With over 50 luxury brands, the Shops At Crystals is a luxury shoppers delight, so splash your cash at Bvlgari, Hermes Tag Heuer or Harry Winston for a shopping high.


Pin for later

If you want to visit Las Vegas, Travel Planners have a range of offers to the USA. Their Las Vegas deals are a bargain with prices from £529 per person for flights and accommodation, and before you know it you could be sitting by the pool in the Winter catching some of the Las Vegas sun. Money saved could be spent on one of these luxury experiences above, so what are you waiting for.

Tell me, have you been to Las Vegas? What do you think of my top luxury experiences?

  15. I had to read this to compare it with our own experience. Totally agree with the helicopter over the Grand Canyon - ditto with the Hoover Dam. Love your other suggestions. My husband and eldest son would love the supercar experience, sadly our son didn't have his licence when we went. Maybe next time. It is an unforgettable city. #CityTripping

    1. It is certainly Jo! We found it is a city that's brash on the exterior but underneath it has very classy spots.
