Splurging on a World Class Las Vegas Vacation at the Bellagio

Las Vegas, Nevada is a place where budget travelers and luxury travelers alike can find the vacation they are looking for. While there are many deals out there for those on a budget, it is certainly not difficult to splurge on a more luxurious vacation for those who can afford it.

The Bellagio is one of the most extravagant hotels on Las Vegas Boulevard and the AAA Five-Diamond award winning hotel definitely shows it. Walking through the hotel lobby, you can see pieces of decor that cost more than the entire staff’s salary combined. When the hotel opened its doors in 1998, it was professed to be the most expensive hotels in the world!

Whether you are planning a fun weekend getaway or a relaxing week next to the pool, for a traveler that wants to be pampered, it is easy to do at this resort.

The Bellagio offers everything visitors may need if they decide to never venture out onto the strip. The on-site restaurants offer the finest dining experiences in the world. The high class stores are available for those who want to shop. The European styled guest rooms and suites offer luxury amenities and fantastic views. There are plenty of ways to entertain yourself including the spectacular Cirque du Soleil.

Dining in Style

No other hotel on the the Strip contains as many first-class dining options as the Bellagio. The resort provides seven fine dining restaurants, and many are named after some of the highest class celebrity chefs in the world, including Todd English and Michael Mina.

Le Cirque’s founder, Sirio Maccioni, brought the French inspired restaurant from New York to Bellagio. Customers can enjoy classic French dishes with a hint of contemporary influences. Meals are served a la carte or as a three- or four-course spread. You can wash down your “Rabbit Symphony” with a choice of over 900 wine labels from all over the world.

Another option to satisfy your sumptuous appetite include the Prime Steakhouse established by superstar chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. A romantic atmosphere with views of the fountain brings with it a menu with exceptional meats and seafood in a 1930’s speakeasy-like atmosphere.

If none of these restarants suit your style, you can dine at the French/Spanish-style Picasso or Italian food at Osteria del Circo.

Aside from these impeccable restaurants, you can experience a more casual dining experience at places like The Buffet, the Pool Cafe, Cafe Bellagio, FIX Restaurant and Bar as well as the award-winning Sensi.

Shopping to Your Heart’s Content

The shops at Bellagio are not marketing towards those on a budget. As shoppers stroll down Via Bellagio, they can find items made by any of their favorite designers including Prada, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, and Dior. No elegant shopping locale would exclude a jewelry shop and Tiffany & Co. fits right in alongside the prestigious collection of Fred Leighton.

If clothing or jewelry is not on your list of things to spend money on, taking in a day at the salon or spa may be more up your alley. There is nothing more relaxing than a massage or facial after a long day of shopping or gambling.

“O” by Cirque du Soleil Is a Vegas Must

“O” by Cirque du Soleil features an international cast of talented synchronized swimmers, divers, and acrobats whose performance takes place completely on, in, or above a 150 million gallon pool. It is quite a unique theatrical production.

The show sells out every night, so be sure and get your tickets well in advance. They are quite expensive, but if you are enjoying a luxury vacation, this is a perfect show to experience.

“O”, or another Cirque du Soleil, is a Vegas show that you don’t want to miss, whether you are staying at the hotel or somewhere else.

Bellagio Can Appeal to Those on Budget, Too

Aside from spending money on luxury items, visitors can appreciate the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, the Gallery of Fine Art, along with the magnificant decor and stunning architecture.

The fountain show in front of the hotel is one of the few free beautiful exhibits available for any passerby to watch. The fountains are choreographed to music and lights making it an enjoyable display.

For a “lap of luxury,” guests can swim in the amazing pool while enjoying the sunshine that always seems to be shining in Las Vegas. There is a poolside cafe for afternoon or early evening drinks to kickstart the ever-present Vegas nightlife.

The palatial hotel is not off-limits to those who can’t afford to spend $100 a person on dinner or shop at Prada. The Bellagio can be affordable for the average person, but it caters to the discriminating few who want the ultimate in luxury.
