Whether you’re after a wet-and-wild party or a serene spot to cool off, here are the 10 best pools in Las Vegas, where you're guaranteed to make a splash.

The Tank, Golden Nugget

The Tank, Golden Nugget

There are swimming pools and then there is The Tank, Golden Nugget’s three-story complex with a 30-foot waterslide that winds its way through a 200-gallon shark aquarium. Swimmers can take in the sea life from the main pool, with a cocktail in hand at the poolside H2O Bar & Grille, or during a marine biologist-led tour of the shark tank. For a quieter, adults-only scene, escape to the third floor Hideout where an infinity pool is flanked by eight plush cabanas and a bar.

The Pools, The Palazzo and The Venetian

Guests of the Palazzo and the Venetian have access to one of the most impressive complexes on the Strip, with 10 pools spread across five acres spanning both hotels. Fountains, lush landscaping, and swanky cabanas are located throughout, and pool vibes run the gamut from party-friendly to family-focused. At Tao Beach Club visitors pull up to a 30-foot bar for tropical cocktails during the day, while in the evening the space transforms into an open-air nightclub. The Aquatic Club offers a mellower, retro-inspired day club option for relaxing poolside, with massages and other treatments from Canyon Ranch helping guests unwind.

Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, Caesars Palace

Seven pools named for deities like Apollo (Roman god of sun and light), Neptune (Roman god of water), and, because this is Las Vegas, Bacchus (Roman god of wine), are spread throughout the Garden of the Gods at Caesars Palace. Each offers a distinct atmosphere—try your luck at swim-up blackjack at the Fortuna Pool, relax at the mellow Jupiter Pool, or hang with high rollers at the exclusive Venus European Pool Lounge. Escape the sun with a treatment in an air-conditioned cabana from Qua Bath & Spa, with poolside services ranging from massage to body art.

Mandalay Bay brings the beach to Vegas with an aquatic complex that includes 2,700 tons of sand, a 1.6 million gallon wave pool, and 100 cabanas, daybeds, and bungalows. Mandalay Beach hosts a concert series during summer months, while frozen drinks from Bikini Bar add to the party vibe year-round.

Pool Courtyards, Bellagio

Pool Courtyards, Bellagio

As you’d expect from a luxury hotel known for its water features (its famous fountains continue to be a top draw for visitors), Bellagio’s five pools are impressive. Mediterranean-inspired design touches, private cabanas, and poolside massage treatments are available throughout, with the Pool Café & Bar providing breakfast, lunch, and handcrafted cocktails.
