9 of the Most Opulent Suites on the Las Vegas Strip
Travelers racing to Nevada for the debut Formula 1 Heineken Silver Las Vegas Grand Prix will want to look at these exceptional luxury hotel rooms
As the world descends upon Las Vegas for the inaugural Formula 1 Grand Prix, demand for the Strip’s most lavish accommodations is at an all time high. While the city itself boasts more than 150,000 hotel rooms, the ultra-exclusive suites with next level design are limited to just a select few. However, those with access can experience extraordinary views in plum environs with top-tier amenities, gallery-worthy art collections, private pools, and exceptional extras. Here, a look inside nine of the most fabulous suites Las Vegas has to offer.
1. Nobu Sky Villa at Caesars Palace
Designed by Rockwell Group, the Nobu Sky Villa boasts sweeping views of the Las Vegas Strip circuit from the 4,700 square-foot terrace perched only 140 feet above the street. Guests partaking of the hotel’s $5 Million Caesars Palace Emperor Package not only get five nights in the 10,300-square-foot, three-bedroom space, they’re also treated to round-the-clock butler service, an outdoor Zen Garden with a Japanese onsen tub, media room, billiards table, full bar, outdoor kitchen, sauna and spa treatment room. A private elevator and entrance ensure the experience will be completely bespoke.
Off the track, visitors enjoy a special menu personally created by Nobu Matsuhisa and Qua Baths & Spa services in the villa’s private treatment room. When it’s time to go to the race, 12 tickets to the Paddock Club, a personal driver, and Rolls-Royce for the entirety of the stay round out the offering that comes with ultimate parting gift—two tickets to “Weekends With Adele” to be used on a return visit.
2. Wynn Tower Suite Salon
Undoubtedly, Wynn is the pinnacle of Las Vegas luxury as the highest-rated five-star hotel on the Strip. The Tower Suites enclave one ups that. Enter through a stunning koi pond-lined foyer doused in the hypnotic scent of Asian Lily. Steps away, the Tower Suites check in is a quick, personalized interaction that ferries guests to the accomodations in under five minutes via dedicated elevators. While the Villas are the largest room type, the recently re-envisioned Salon Suite features a crisp design that feels like you stepped into your new 1,817-square-foot pied-à-terre, complete with a dining alcove, granite wet bar, and spacious main bedroom complete with marble bath and dual closets. The furniture, fixtures, lighting, and artwork are all exclusive to Wynn and were either custom designed by Todd Avery Lenahan, president and Chief Creative Officer of Wynn Design & Development, or commissioned from global master artisans.
3. Aria Resort & Casino SkyVilla
The seven Sky Villas of Aria are much more than suites—they are the apex of luxury. The 2,000- to 7,000-square-foot residences, designed by KES Studio, have high style, privacy, comfort, convenience, service, stunning views, and a butler to fulfill every one of your wishes. Guests arrive in Rolls-Royce Phantoms and are met with a Champagne walk-and-talk check in. Each SkyVilla features floor-to-ceiling windows and unique aesthetic glamour with jewel-tone colors, shape-defying seating that begs deep conversation, blue-chip art, tricked out bars, and art deco-inspired baths with waterfall steam showers.
The pinnacle of a SkyVilla stay is the daily surprise moments picked by the butlers, which could include a personalized cigar cart with hand-rolled masterpieces, custom-made chocolates, or freshly baked mesquite bread, amongst other treats. The amenities go beyond the edible with Hermès, Bulgari, or Creed personal-care items. Be sure to explore the resort, where an impressive art collection, including works from Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Nancy Rubins, Julian Schnabel, Frank Stella and James Turrell, are all on display.
4. Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Presidential Suite
Adjacent to Aria, Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas features a relaxed alternative to the typical Strip resort: There is no casino and no smoking. This is where travelers can really get away from it all. The newly redesigned 3,000-square-foot one-bedroom Presidential Suite showcases a grand piano in the living room, an open-plan kitchen with a full bar, a dining room for eight guests, and a media room with Bang and Olufsen surround sound.
The suite is just one of the masterful new amenities at Waldorf Astoria, which recently completed a full transformation. The new aesthetic draws comparison to the legendary Waldorf Astoria in New York and Nevada’s iconic Hoover Dam with 11,000 square feet of gray and gold veined Calacatta Gold marble imported from Italy, two-story high ceilings, a custom-designed crystal chandelier, gold and emerald furniture accents, and textured fabrics. Punctuating the communal space is art from contemporary Italian artist Angelo Musco, known for his large-scale figurative works, and pieces by mixed-media photographer Casper Faassen.
5. Empathy Suite at Palms Casino Resort
The epic Damien Hirst Empathy Suite at Palms Casino Resort is hosting a seven-night stay during the Las Vegas Grand Prix. Art connoisseurs overnighting in the 9,000 square-foot accommodations will enjoy a showcase of Hirst’s artwork, which is featured throughout the space that includes two king bedrooms, a private pool and terrace, and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Las Vegas Strip. The hotel’s Grand Prix package also includes an extra SkyVilla for additional friends, two Formula One hospitality tickets, six grandstand tickets, dinner for eight at Palms steakhouse Scotch 80, and a VIP table at Ghostbar with seven bottles of Ace of Spades rosé. Additionally, guests looking for a more intimate view of some dream machines can view various Ferrari marques on display in the lobby and in the valet: a red Ferrari 333SP, a red Ferrari LaFerrari FXX-K, a red Ferrari Enzo FXX, and a black Ferrari 599XX.
6. Resorts World Crockfords Palace Suite
Proffering the luck and good fortune of number eight, the $888,000 F1 package comes with a three-night stay in a 7,000 square-foot Crockfords Palace Suite. With three and four bedroom configurations, the Palace Suites are among the largest and most opulent in Las Vegas. These accommodations have a grand foyer with a private powder room, state-of-the-art media room with cinema-style seating, a game room with billiards and a wet bar, and a garden terrace with a private pool and gourmet kitchen.

7. Bellagio Spa Tower Suites
Bellagio wrote the playbook on Las Vegas luxury when it opened 25 years ago. Now the reenvisioned Spa Tower rooms and suites continue that tradition, drawing inspiration from the beauty and tranquility of Italy’s Lake Como in the $110 million design transformation by Champalimaud Design. The key is versatility; accommodations range from 850 square feet to the 2,500-square-foot Executive Hospitality Suites, which feature billiards lounges and home theater living areas for entertaining. Tufted cream-colored headboards, soft uplighting, custom case goods, curvilinear sofas, benches, and chairs add to the residential-style ambience while art influenced by Italian style animate corridors lined with dramatic midnight blue doors and glowing handmade Italian light fixtures. Each suite bears different accent colors that reflect an aspect of the Italian countryside: garnet like Mediterranean pomegranates; azure and indigo, inspired by the sky, mountains, and the lake; or Solferino, a brilliant deep pink color discovered in Northern Italy.
8. The Cosmopolitan Boulevard Penthouses
The 25 designer suites located on the top five floors of the Boulevard Tower of The Cosmopolitan range from 2,000 to 5,000 square feet. From Tihany Design, Daun Curry, and Richmond International, the penthouses—with seven unique designs from each team—are for those who want to push the boundaries on their hospitality experience. There are observation showers, pegasus carousel horses, 24-karat gold handcrafted resin and Verre églomisé panels, and magnificent two-story windows and wrap-around patios. Additionally, there are four original penthouses on the 70th floor, designed by Bentel & Bentel Architects, that opened with the resort in 2010. These suites represent masterpieces of modern design infused by desert elements.
9. Mandalay Bay Four-Bedroom Presidential Suite
Not many hotel suites come with their own personal fitness facility and 10 televisions, entertainment room, pool table, and multiple wet bars. Even fewer have four uniquely furnished bedrooms, each with an adjoining living room. The Mandalay Bay Presidential Suite is the epitome of Vegas vacation with 5,610 square feet and a dramatic two-story living room with panoramic views of the city. Prepare for the day with a morning workout using the en suite treadmill and free weights then recover post race with a complimentary procedure in Spa Mandalay. Guests also have access to the Foundation Room and VIP Lounge as well as luxury airport transportation and concierge pre-arrival itinerary planning.
