Ditch the New Year Resolutions, Indulge in Las Vegas
Spa & Salon at ARIA
The wild and craziness of another New Year celebration is over. Like most of us, we trey to start the new Year with a long list of resolution. Go on a diet, more excercise, save more money, do more charity work, etc….
Whatever the New Year resolutions you have come up with, maybe it’s time to throw them all away and indulge in the luxury that is Las Vegas.
We’ve offered an intriguing list of ultimate pleasures in Sin City. Beyond the slot machines and water-downed casino drinks, there is a world of luxury and pampering that only Las Vegas can deliver.
Forget the diet. AAA Five Diamond Chef Joel Robuchon has sixteen courses of his legendary French cuisine at MGM Grand. Treat yourself. Gift yourself with the exclusive items from brands like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci and Tiffany’s in Crystals at CityCenter. Skip the workout. Get pampered with the luxurious Caviar Facial at Spa Bellagio or Spa & Salon Vdara’s Four Hands Massage with champagne… and more.
Forget the Diet
· As the only restaurant in Vegas to ever hold three Michelin stars, Joël Robuchon at MGM Grand offers a dining experience that’ll impress even the most refined of palates – the 16 Course Degustation Menu. The ultimate splurge in fine French cuisine, Gault Millau’s Chef of the Century’s menu evolves seasonally. The menu is currently priced at $425 per person and features countless delicacies, such as “Le Foie Gras,” a Carpaccio of foie gras and potatoes, covered with white truffle shavings. Indulge yourself in the Bread Cart, with more than a dozen types of breads pulled from the oven minutes before service begins; the eclectic Cheese Cart with 15-20 varieties available nightly; and the Mignardises Trolley, filled with more than 30 handmade delights – all at unlimited quantities with your meal.
· In the land of $100 margaritas and $1,000 shots of whiskey, there should be no surprise that Las Vegas is home to an extravagant and unrivaled burger-eating experience. Renowned Chef Hubert Keller of Fleur at Mandalay Bay serves up FleurBurger 5000, a gastronomic jackpot. The foie gras and black truffle-topped Kobe burger is accompanied by a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1995 poured in Ichendorf Brunello stemware, exclusively imported from Italy. After the meal, the team at Fleur by Hubert Keller will ship the glasses to the guest’s home at no additional charge. All this decadence for the price of $5,000!
