Looking for a getaway that provides you with privacy and exclusive amenities? What better option than a fabulous suite or villa in Las Vegas where you can live like royalty and practice social distancing in a most decadent manner.
We’ve scouted out several experiences to cure your quarantine blues.
The Mirage has just reopened on the Las Vegas Strip with MGM Resorts’ “Seven-Point Safety Plan” in place. Included in the plan are physical distancing policies and rules wherein all guests and employees wear masks (complimentary masks supplied if you forget yours!). Moves to install plexiglass dividers where distancing is a challenge, plus digital menus that can be viewed on your own phone are just two measures MGM has taken to make the guest feel comfortable.
Of course, once you are settled into your own over-the-top accommodations, you’ll be able to feel even more comfortable. The Villas at the Mirage are meant to make the guest feel like a high roller and are even more practical in this COVID era. They each have a concealed entrance (that’s a step beyond private!), 24-hour butler service and private backyard patios and pools. Nice Touch: Villa stays now include the opportunity to customize vanity amenities and beverage options.
Options at the Villas at the Mirage include the Villas and the Lanais, which start at 2,650 square feet. They have two large living areas, a wet bar, a master bedroom and master bath with dual vanities and whirlpool tub as well as a private backyard with a dipping pool.
The Villas have furnishings that are opulent in their aesthetic and the space is huge, starting at 6,955 square feet. A backyard patio, crafted with entertaining in mind, is even more of a luxury these days, with a heated, private pool, a putting green and a fully stocked wet bar.

Other swanky options include a Two-Bedroom Tower Suite. With 1,628 square feet of space, the two-bedroom suite has sweeping views of the Vegas landscape, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. A variety of color schemes are available and double doors separate the large living and dining area from the bedrooms.
The Two Bedroom Hospitality Suite works well for guests planning a small business meeting or perhaps for those who have chosen to work remotely in a chic setting.
They also work well for those with kids in tow. A living area, a wet bar, a master bedroom with a king-size bed and floor-to-ceiling windows and an upgraded bathroom. The second bedroom has two queen beds.
The Penthouse suites on the top floors of the Mirage (with amazing views of Vegas, naturally) come with a one- or two-bedroom option. Added amenities here include limo service to and from the airport, a wine and cheese platter upon arrival and elevated room service through the Suite Life Program.
Open-air options have become more in demand than ever in our current environment, and The Cosmopolitan on the Las Vegas Strip has plenty to offer. In fact, the resort hotel claims it is the only Strip property with open-air terraces within its hotel accommodations for public booking. Between two hotel towers and 75 floors, more than 70 percent of rooms at The Cosmopolitan tout terraces that make it super easy to soak in the panoramic views, the neon lights of Sin City and the valley’s distant mountain range.
A great pick here are the Lanai Suites, which have an island beach house vibe, thanks to their private direct access to the resort’s Chelsea Pool. The two-story suites have floor-to-ceiling windows, a living area and a private outdoor space with a heated plunge pool.
The Chelsea Penthouses at The Cosmopolitan range in size with two to four bedrooms.
Want to take it up a notch? The three-story Bungalow Suites have terraces with a Jacuzzi plunge pool, and an outdoor kitchen and bar area.
Want more? The Chelsea Penthouses at The Cosmopolitan range in size with two to four bedrooms, unique in-room art and sweet wraparound terraces with views that go on for days and days.
Touchless communications are a snap here, thanks to the resort’s chat bot and 24/7 digital concierge, Rose. The text option serves up food-and-beverage suggestions and reservation assistance, amenity deliveries (extra pillows, towels, etc.), room-ready notifications, property art tours and seamless check-out.
The Cosmopolitan is also giving guests in-room amenity kits, including personal protective equipment (PPE) and additional items to make them feel more reassured during their stay. A newly adopted practice, in-room amenity kits are just one way The Cosmopolitan reports that it is meeting and exceeding the set health and sanitation government guidelines. Policies include social distancing and mandatory masks for guests and staff.

When it’s time to explore outside your suite, we’ve got some fun attractions to explore in a safe manner.
FLY LINQ at The LINQ Promenade, the zipline on the Las Vegas Strip, and the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck at Paris Las Vegas have reopened with enhanced public health protocols and are scheduled to operate Fridays through Sundays.
Developed by the team behind High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, FLY LINQ has 10 side-by-side zip lines, capable of simultaneously launching all riders. Guests begin their ride by taking an elevator to the top of the 114-foot-tall launch tower above The LINQ Promenade. After enjoying spectacular views of the Strip during the ascent, guests arrive on the launch deck, where gear-fitting takes place. Guests can fly seated, either forward or backward, as they travel 1,121 feet along the Promenade.
The Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck at Paris Las Vegas has 360-degree city views, with knowledgeable ambassadors on hand to point out various Las Vegas landmarks from the 541-foot-tall tower. A half-scale replica of the iconic Parisian landmark, the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas remains the tallest reproduction of the original in the world.
The Villas at the Mirage have a backyard patio, crafted with entertaining in mind, with a heated, private pool, a putting green and a fully stocked wet bar.
FLY LINQ Zipline at The LINQ Promenade and the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck at Paris Las Vegas will also follow Caesars Entertainment’s previously announced enhanced health and safety protocols, which build on the Company’s existing plans and practices in these areas.
