Luxury Living in Las Vegas

Here at Tripzter, we truly believe the best way to curate and create the most memorable experiences for our clients means we need to test the product (and destination) firsthand. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. Throughout the year, we conduct on-site hotel inspections, participating in educational trips around the world, and work closely with tourism boards to learn about what’s new and exciting. With Ginger traipsing around the Lonestar State to curate ten-gallon sized experiences, and Anita jet-setting off to the Middle East to show our clients the epitome of Israeli luxury, it was my turn to report on back on how to create the perfect itinerary for luxury living in Las Vegas.

Luxury Living in Las Vegas at the Venetian 

There are over 150,000 hotel rooms in Las Vegas, with 65,000 of those directly on the Las Vegas Strip. From budget to luxury, there are plenty of options to choose from, but in order to experience luxury living in Vegas, we opted for a sky-high penthouse at the Venetian Hotel. The Venetian is conveniently located directly on the Las Vegas Strip, across the street from the Mirage and Treasure Island hotels. It has an impressive selection of restaurants with some of the world’s most prominent executive chefs at the helm, more luxury boutique shopping than one could dream up, a world-famous Canyon Ranch Spa, the hottest nightclub on the Strip (Tao), and one of the world’s largest casinos.

Penthouse Living: Check-in Like a VIP

PRIVATE CONCIERGE

It was hard not to feel like a celebrity as we breezed past the crowds at the regular check-in counter, opened a door marked ‘private’ and stepped into your very own private Concierge area. Soft classical music floated across the antique-inspired space. Sumptuous baked goods, quaint sandwiches, and fresh fruit on silver platters sat on a linen table, and a beverage station with freshly brewed coffee, tea, and an assortment of juices awaited us. And just in case someone needed something to take the edge off, a meticulously dressed server strolled over to send us on our way with a cocktail (charges applied) and a complimentary bottle of Fiji water to take up to our room.

After an effortless VIP check-in, room keys in hand, we wandered over to the elevators, summoned the 36th floor and zipped up to the top. After passing under a gargantuan crystal chandelier, making our way down a long, but spacious corridor, we reached a set of double doors, slipped in our card key and 3,200 square feet of luxury living space laid before us. Greeted by a formal dining room, a baby grand piano in the corner by a large window and formal salon with multiple couches and large flat screen TV, we retired to our separate wings (yes, wings!) Each wing had its very own over-sized marble bathroom, complete with jetted tub, separate glass-enclosed showers, his and her sinks and matching plush terry cloth robes. And if that wasn’t enough to impress, there’s no better way to end a pavement-pounding day in Sin City than to fall into a heavenly king-sized bed, complete with floor-to-ceiling views of the Las Vegas Strip.

BELLA SUITE

If a Penthouse is too extravagant of a splurge, the Venetian’s beautiful Bella Suites are the largest on the Strip, with 650 square feet of luxurious living space, and plenty of fabulous amenities to make you feel like you’re living like a high roller.

Luxury Dining in Las Vegas

ALFRESCO DINING AT BOUCHON

Gone are the days of the cheap buffets and bad food – Las Vegas has taken upscale dining to a whole new level. With an average of 40 million visitors per year, it’s no surprise the city of sin is home to more critically acclaimed chefs and Michelin Star winners than anywhere else on Earth! As travel experts, it’s our job to know all the hottest spots for the most discerning foodie. Some of my personal recommendations include Thomas Keller’s Bouchon, a sumptuous and classic French Bistro nestled away in the Venzia Tower of the Venetian; Momofuku at the Cosmopolitan – a Korean fusion restaurant serving up foodie delicacies such as fried chicken with caviar, kimchi stew and traditional ox-tail soup; And for those who want to dine on America’s most beloved cuisine, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak, and Stone Crab at the Forum Shop’s in Caesar’s Palace will surely not disappoint.

Endless Entertainment 

Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world. There are more live music productions, comedy acts, magic shows, conventions and special events than anywhere else in the world – That’s on top of the infinite gaming possibilities! On my latest trip, I managed to incorporate a quick trip out to the Red Rock Canyon, saw a cowboy Melodrama at Bonnie Springs Ranch, caught the late-night showing of Le Reve at the Wynn and cheered on Martin Truex Jr. in his race to the finish at NASCAR.

Planning trip to Vegas shouldn’t be a coin toss – Elevate your experience from exciting to exceptional. Tripzter agents are here to curate and create your perfect luxurious Las Vegas getaway.

Israel travel

Israel Luxury

A journey to Israel, through the eyes of Anita

I am excited to have been invited as a guest of the Israeli Tourism Board on what is truly a trip of a lifetime. I am honored to be spending the next nine days touring the Holy Lands of Israel and taking in the rich heritage and vibrant culture this beautiful country offers.

I have had a love affair with Israel after researching this amazing country for a recent client trip. I had grown up with the stories in the bible, and have always known that Israel is the centre of faith for so many. With thousands of followers making pilgrimages to the various religious sites each year, it is easily one of the most visited nations in the world. What I was surprised to learn, was about the revolutionary culinary scene, the exciting nightlife, the bustling tech industry, the iconic architecture and the up and coming viticulture that attracts so many young visitors each year.

My upcoming travels will include a balance of both historical treasures, such as the biblical sites of Jerusalem, Caesarea, Akko, Masada and the Judean Desert as well as the modern sites including, contemporary art galleries, trendy cafes, sun kissed beaches and the Bauhaus architecture in the streets of Tel Aviv, known as the “White City”. Basking on the shores of the salty Dead Sea will be a highlight for me and I am very curious to sample local wines cultivated from these ancient lands.

Tel Aviv is known as the “New York of the Middle East” and is such a cosmopolitan city. With so many cultures converging in this small coastal town, it is a melting pot of traditions and truly the ideal location for creative culinary fusion. A self-proclaimed ‘foodie-nation”, Israel takes pride in their place amongst the International culinary scene. I am beyond excited to seek out and explore the many markets, juice stands, food stalls, restaurants, cocktail bars and boutique organic hotels for which Israel is famed.

I am graciously being hosted for these nine days by Isrotel Hotels, Gordon Tours and El Al Airlines. Be sure to check out Tripzter Travel’s Facebook page for my airline profile, hotel spotlights, destination snapshots, videos and more.
