I often attempt to explain to people what my fascination with Bellagio Las Vegas is and I get wrapped up in such a convoluted answer that it sounds as if I have been drinking too much or I am an infatuated admirer of a beautiful, unattainable woman. Bellagio Las Vegas might just be that special someone that resides in my head, although she is attainable and the truth is I probably would have been having a drink while trying to describe her gifts.
If I only had one day with her it would be tough but I would attempt to take advantage of the very best that Bellagio Las Vegas has to offer. My day would look something like the list down below but I would have to try not to miss a few other things such as Lunch at LAGO with a view of the fountains and dinner at Harvest as Chef Roy Ellamar dazzles with so many options from his truly farm to table menu.
One day at Bellagio Las Vegas is not enough, but if that is all you have try to make some good choices from the options below.
Wake up in the new rooms at Bellagio Las Vegas
The redesigned rooms are worth spending a few extra minutes in but with so much to see and do at Bellagio Las Vegas you'll must avoid the temptation to soak in the tub or take a bath. See some pictures of the new rooms at Bellagio.
Breakfast with Jean Phillipe – Crepe, Coffee, croissant
Have a crepe, have some coffee and then have a little too much chocolate. Jean Phillipe Patisserie is that spot where you'll notice the World's Largest Chocolate Fountain and a decadent assortment of sweet treats but you might over look the crepes. Don't do it, they are a surprising treat and frankly having one for an afternoon snack is definitely a must do while at Bellagio.
Rejuvenate with The Spa at Bellagio – Athletes Revival
Even if you only have one day at Bellagio you owe it to yourself to be pampered and taken to a higher level of relaxation. My last visit to Bellagio Spa was a soothing Athletes Revival treatment where my muscles were stretched and then massaged right to the point of me passing out. The salon also offers you a chance to clean up a bit and make yourself look and feel good.
Lunch with a view at Olives
I will confess that I am partial to Olives simply because it reminds me of that special feeling I get when I have a great meal with my wife. It feels romantic to me regardless of who I am with and the view of the fountains while I have my meal is ideal. The food is consistently good and the customer service is at the highest of levels.
Even when it is cold outside the heated pool makes you feel good and the truth is if you leave the frigid temperatures of the north you'll be happy with the sunshine in Las Vegas even in the winter months. The pool is as elegant as the rest of the resort and you will not have to deal with the party scene that pools up and down the Las Vegas strip have become.
Simply fantastic. You have one meal and you want to make it special this is where you should be. Le Cirque is fine dining on a level that is above almost all the rest on the strip. It is among the very best restaurants in Las Vegas and you will experience it from the time you walk in until the moment you are ready to leave. It is the complete package.
Entertain yourself with “O”
This is one of those shows that you will remember for sometime to come. Cirque do Soleil is impressive but "O" is remarkable. Don't worry about where you sit because it feels like every seat is the best in the house.
Dance until the sun comes up at The Bank
Move it, shake it, show it. It is simple to have a good time at at Las Vegas nightclub and as your night comes to an end a few hours dancing the night away will put the finishing touches on an epic one day at the Bellagio.
Just when you think you have it all covered you realize that you never saw Bellagio fountains, you missed the Conservatory and Gardens and you only glanced at the Dale Chihuly sculpture above your head. You would easily need another day to experience the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art and do a little shopping at Villa Bellagio.
Of course you would have to eat and the choices are endless with necessary stops at Noodles and Yellowtail as well as the fine dining options at Michael Mina, Prime and Picasso.
As your evening progresses you’ll find yourself lounging at the Petrossian bar or at Hyde Lounge and you just might be thinking that the only way to do the Bellagio justice would be to spend at least 4 nights there.
