The Pocket Vegas Guide to 2012's Pool Parties

Every year, thousands of holidaymakers and thrill-seekers head to Las Vegas, the self-appointed entertainment capital of the world, for a break filled with hedonistic pursuits, luxurious hotels and the most extravagant pool parties Nevada has to offer. Every hotel in Vegas boasts a collection of huge pools, often able to accommodate thousands of guests, and whilst there are plenty of quiet, relaxing areas for those who wish to top up their tan and catch up with a good book, the real fun can be found at the lively Las Vegas pool parties which occur every day.

The Encore Beach Club Vegas pool party is modelled on the cool vibe often found at European pool parties at some of the continent’s famous holiday hotspots. The 60,000 square feet devoted to poolside pursuits includes a three-tiered pool, a water-front nightclub and a collection of two-storied bungalows which feature hot tubs, air conditioning and views of the famous Vegas strip. Cabanas are available to be hired, all complete with refrigerators and flat-screen televisions, and for those who would prefer to keep out of the blazing sun, a number of oversized lily-pads float in the shady areas for relaxing and enjoying a drink.

The Travel Channel recently chose the Hard Rock Hotel’s pool area as one of the ten best in the world, so visitors to Vegas would be mad to miss a pool party here. With live entertainment and DJs performing every day, the adults-only pool area spans an incredible five acres and is surrounded by sandy beaches and indulgent cabanas. Swim-up blackjack is one of the highlights here, with partygoers able to try their luck whilst sipping a refreshing drink in the aquamarine water. Every week on a Sunday, the hotel hosts the Rehab Las Vegas pool party, one of the city’s most famous parties, and not a night to be missed by any account.

The decadent outdoor playground at the Palms Hotel plays host to the Ditch pool party, which is open from 11am until dusk every day. The three bars are features to behold in themselves; the Glass Bar is situated underneath a glass-bottomed pool, the Waterfall Bar is concealed behind a surging waterfall, while the Entry Bar is perfectly placed with easy access for all. For special celebrations, the bungalows for hire feature king-sized beds, private bars and plasma televisions, and huge private Jacuzzis. Accommodating up to 3,000 guests every day, the Ditch Vegas pool party at the Palms Hotel is perfect to commemorate a birthday, hen or stag party, and guests are guaranteed a day to remember.
