Welcome to your new playground: Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.  Just a few blocks off the strip, this modern resort concept, recently launched from the re-vamped Hard Rock location, is a refreshing change from the mega casinos on the main drag.

Virgin Hotel Las Vegas

Virgin Hotels Las Vegas is a destination that caterers to the curious.  If you crave an experience filled with fanciful perks and surprising, good fun, the time has come to see where the cool kids kick back in Vegas.

Dinging area at Virgin Hotels, Las Vegas

At Virgin you can leave feeling rejuvenated instead of hung over.  Living your best life on a Vegas vacation doesn’t mean you have to toss out your wellness routine.  In lieu of a Bloody Mary, get your blood pumping at their 24-hour state-of-the-art gym and kickstart your day with a freshly made smoothie from The Juice Bar.  Take a breather from rolling the dice at The Spa as you indulge in an array of Massages, Facials, and Body Treatments.  Nourish your soul with complimentary Saturday and Sunday morning yoga classes.

The Spa at Virgin Hotels, Las Vegas

I enjoyed in The Spa’s steam, sauna, and showers before my VEMI and massage appointments. The VEMI chair was something I’d never even heard of before so of course I had to give it a go.  It up-levels your wellness, giving your body the ability to relax and restore energy like a power nap.  It’s the only luxury system that combines three distinct modalities: Vibroacoustic, Electro-Magnetic waves and Infrared heat.  It was like a soothing hi-tech sound bath.


The pool at Virgin Hotels, Las Vegas

Pool season is mid-March to October.  I got a sneak peek at Kassi Beach Club. Opening May 2024, it’s your very own Mediterranean escape right in Vegas. The new 21+ pool experience provides an atmosphere where you can unwind in style with soft sand beaches, lush foliage, and local DJs spinning vibrant beats. Soak up the sun while being served mouthwatering bites and signature cocktails from their coastal Italian hotspot, Kassi Beach House. Summer at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will be nothing short of spectacular!


The shows at Virgin Hotels, Las Vegas

There are plenty of restaurants to choose from within the Virgin Hotels compound.  My favorite eats and treats include Commons Kitchen– where you can satisfy your taste buds 24/7, Nobu a welcome hold over from the old Hard Rock days, and the new One Steakhouse that turns into a club-like scene Thursday nights with a live DJ.  Plus, if you’re like me, you’ll be tempted to have dessert first at Afters Ice Cream.


The Show at Virgin Hotels, Las Vegas

Virgin Hotels is home to some of the most iconic event spaces in Las Vegas re-imagined with a Virgin twist.  The Theater spins out live music by both legendary and groundbreaking artists.  24 Oxford taps into Virgin Records’ humble beginnings on Oxford Street.  Now Performing: Lady Like – a Retro Modern Burlesque Show Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8pm.

Cheers to the uncommon

Though Virgin Hotels Las Vegas doesn’t have the opulent lobbies and luxury retail like some of the bigger, grander resorts, it’s quite kitschy-cool and getting around the place is very manageable.  As you might guess, a stay, play, and spa here will renew your spirit without breaking the bank.
