If you ever tire of the slot machines and black jack tables, Las Vegas has plenty more bizarre and outrageous attractions on offer. Take the Neon Museum, for example. Located just outside the city, this 'junk yard' is the final resting place for unused, retired neon signs that once adorned the facades of major hotels on the strip. With over 150 relic neon signs to admire, this neon graveyard is strangely compelling - part Disneyfied, it is also symbolic of Las Vegas' golden days and feels oddly historic.
Dining & Gourmet
Discover dining alongside exhilarating views and extraordinary cuisine at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas. Located on the 23rd floor, you will find an extraordinary menu of dishes at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire - the chef holds three Michelin Stars for his restaurant in Paris. Twist's pioneering menu of classic French cuisine with a contemporary edge has seen the restaurant presented with the coveted Forbes Five Star award in 2017. Enjoy a gastronomic tour of tantalising tastes from around Asia, served alongside a selection of American classics at MOzen Bistro, or grab a bite to eat at Pool Cafe, offering a selection of fresh cuisine and delectable desserts.
Spa & Wellness
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas is spread over two floors and there are seventeen treatment rooms, seven of which are designed for couples. Therapies are based on eastern traditions and modern techniques and are complemented by a Chinese foot spa area, a hammam, laconium, a vitality pool, an ice fountain, a ladies’ rassul, a men’s sauna, steam rooms and relaxation lounges. There is also a yoga studio and yoga classes available. If you want to get ‘glammed up’ for a night out on the town, the beauty salon offers make-up, hair and nail services.
Culture & History
For genuine history, the golden pyramid at Luxor Hotel houses a comprehensive Titanic exhibition (one would presume they'd have gone for an Egyptian theme, but nothing is as it seems in LV!). Inside, you'll find fascinating artifacts, personal belongings from the depths of the ocean and a full-scale recreation of the Grand Staircase. Brash but poignant, it makes an interesting, family-friendly alternative to the card decks.
If you're spending your honeymoon here, there's a host of activities you and your partner can enjoy, such as hiking, horse-riding, mountain-biking in some of America's most spectacular scenery and even gambling lessons in the casino of your choice. The Concierge will make reservations for you at the top clubs and shows and can even arrange a private gourmet experience in Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, complete with twenty-third-floor views over the glittering skyline. Alternatively, enjoy candlelight and Champagne in one of the poolside cabanas.
