Though smaller than its neighbor, Wynn Las Vegas, Encore combines the very best of all of Wynn's masterpieces. As far as luxury is concerned, Las Vegas simply doesn't get much better. Encore redefines the typical Vegas casino-resort experience with new levels of extravagance. All of the rooms are suites, and measure a minimum of 700 square feet (up to a maximum of 5,800 square feet). These accommodations come standard with spacious sitting areas, flat-panel televisions, floor-to-ceiling windows, and electronic curtain controls. Bathrooms feature Italian marble and Wynn's Bambu signature bath products. Bedside control panels enable guests to operate nearly everything in the room.
The details: Most Vegas casino resorts boast knock-offs of expensive antiques from all over the world; at Encore, however, designer Roger Thomas has invested in the real thing. There are other important details, too: A wall at Wazuzu Asian restaurant is decorated with a large dragon made from 90,000 Swarovski crystals; Sinatra, the Italian restaurant, displays Frank Sinatra's 1953 Oscar for the film From Here to Eternity.
The sunlight: Sunlit corridors with flower-filled atriums and sprawling pools are visible from throughout the property; there also are a number of signature mosaics.
The clubs: XS, a Vegas legend on the nightclub circuit, combines an outdoor pool environment with a sizzling club atmosphere. Encore Beach Club and Surrender offer more of the same (though these two are heavier on the pool part).
Society Cafe : The hippest restaurant on property serves up dim sum on weekends and is famous for whimsical dishes such as pretzel bread and mac-and-cheese nuggets.
The main hotel pools are surrounded by sculpted gardens, mosaic tiling, and feature Jacuzzi spas and 29 luxurious cabanas.
Todd-Avery Lenahan designed the Moroccan-themed Spa and the Salon, which features 37 treatment rooms, 14 naturally lit garden rooms, a number of oversize couples' suites for massage, body treatments, and facials, as well as daily spin and yoga classes.
The beautiful Esplanade at Encore features Hermès, Chanel, and the first-ever Rock & Republic store.
In-room televisions include a channel that lists up-to-the-minute betting lines in the Wynn Las Vegas sports book.
Wynn's beautiful all-suite resort has intimate common areas and expansive private spaces. Room sizes start at 700 square feet, and all have floor-to-ceiling windows, a soaking tub for two, and pillow-top beds dressed in Egyptian cotton. Instead of being merely another sprawling gambling hangar, the casino has a collection of quiet, partitioned gaming rooms. The XS nightclub is, provocatively, "inspired by the sexy curves of the human body."
