True to its name, Mirage offers lush landscapes and an oasis-like feel not at all reflective of a desert city but perfectly suited for a Las Vegas experience.
Rooms embrace cool metals, warm woods and pops of color for a contemporary, upscale feel. Pillow-top mattresses, down comforters and feather pillows come standard and make for a cozy sleeping experience.
High-end countertops give a little gloss and upscale feel to an otherwise standard hotel bathroom.
The main entrance and front desk embrace the resort’s oasis theme. The former features an atrium where guests can feel surrounded by palm trees, waterfalls and a tropical fauna like banana trees and orchids. Behind the front desk sits a 20,000-gallon tank featuring nearly 1,000 types of marine life from across the world.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Outside the front entrance of the hotel is The Volcano, which includes a reoccurring audio/visual show. Set to a soundtrack created by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and international superstar Zakir Hussain, the free spectacle impresses both guests and those simply passing by.
No mirage would be complete without a pool. The Mirage has two saltwater pools and two whirlpools. They are surrounded by waterfalls, private cabanas and an outdoor cafe. For a more upscale experience that channels Europe, Bare Pool Lounge is available for the 21+ crowd.
The Spa offers a range of treatments, including a Signature Detoxifying Wrap and a Pear and Apple Facial and Body Treatment.
Yoga Among the Dolphins is a free 60-minute public yoga class that takes place in an underwater viewing area of Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat. Bottlenose dolphin viewings are all but guaranteed and the yoga can be customized to accommodate all skill levels.
Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak takes advantage of its atrium location to set a great atmosphere, then delivers a menu full of meats prepared entirely over and open flame.
Rhumbar combines a cool, Caribbean vibe with a sleek design full of whites and minty greens. Stylish specialty cocktails and daiquiris are king here, though a full bar is available.
The Las Vegas Strip is pedestrian friendly. For anything further than walking distance, taxis and ride-share services can easily be found.
Next-door neighbor Caesars is a good place to start if your home base is at The Mirage.
The Vegas Strip has no shortage of bars. Checkout any of the neighboring resorts for options.
