The Palms – Vegas Luxury
Owner George Maloof, with a recent assist from Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, offers accommodations unlike any in Vegas.
The sky is no longer the limit in Las Vegas thanks to George Maloof. For high rollers visiting Vegas, Maloof has built the Fantasy Tower at the Palms Casino Resort. The Fantasy Tower is the latest development in the Palms Casino Resort’s $650-million expansion.
Among its 347 rooms and suites, the 40-story hotel tower features more than 40 Fantasy Suites and Sky Villas featuring one-of-a-kind amenities never before seen in Las Vegas. “Our client is anyone from a corporation to a couple who is looking for an ultimate fantasy,” Maloof said.
From basketball half-courts and a personal bowling alley to vibrating beds and private “show showers,” the Fantasy Tower is designed for those who think big.
Fantasy Suites in the Fantasy Tower start at $4,000 per night and can go as high as $40,000 per night for the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, which sits at the top.
In addition to accommodations, the Fantasy Tower will feature an entertainment mecca that mixes nightlife and dining, including the first Playboy Club to open in 25 years. An allnew nightclub and Mediterranean restaurant at the top of the Fantasy Tower will open in September. Other Fantasy Tower developments include the all-new, $40-million Palms Pool & Bungalows.
The list of amenities in the luxury suites is as long as the Strip itself. For example, the 10,000-square-foot Hardwood Suite boasts a two-level party room, a half basketball court, three NBA-sized Murphy beds, a living-media room, a 10-person Jacuzzi and customized services such as personalized basketball jerseys and cheerleaders.
The King Pin Suite offers a 4,240-square-foot retro-style party room with two bedrooms, three bathrooms, LCD and plasma TVs (including a theater-size projection screen), regulation bowling equipment and a pool table. Not surprisingly, the Erotic Suite offers sexy amenities including a metal-encased “show shower” and an 8-foot-round rotating bed beneath a mirrored ceiling.
But perhaps the pièce de résistance is the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, which was designed with the help of Hefner himself. Opening in September, the suite will include an outdoor cantilevered Jacuzzi with glass-end walls, a living room, a media room, a full bar, a fully equipped gym with a sauna, a spa-style treatment room, a personal glass elevator, an 8-foot rotating bed, pop-up plasma TVs and a collection of Playboy art personally selected by Hefner.
