Las Vegas is no Paris or Venice when it comes to romance, but it’s not a bad comparison. Where else in the world can you dine at the top of the Eiffel Tower, take a gondola ride and get married by Elvis … all in one day?
Seriously, though, amidst all the slot machines, pool clubs and restaurants, there are places in Las Vegas to create a romantic getaway. If fact, many resorts put together romance-based packages that change with the seasons. If you’re interested in igniting a spark with that special someone, we recommend you start by booking a room at one of these romantic hotels.
Caesars Palace is all about relaxation. If you and your significant other want to melt away the stress together, consider booking a fantasy suite, each of which comes in a different theme with plenty of room to spread out. The Augustus Tower Spa Suite specifically offers all the amenities you could only otherwise imagine, including an infinity spa tub that overlooks the Strip. During the day, relax poolside at the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, a sophisticated and spacious area that includes six pools, each with a different purpose.
In the afternoon, choose from one of several couples spa treatments before heading out to dinner at one of the resort’s fine restaurants. Hyakumi Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar offers an array of fresh seafood and Rao’s serves the best in Italian fare. Both have a distinctly romantic flair.

If you can’t ride the gondola’s through the canals in Venice, then do the next best thing. At the Venetian, you can walk the winding boulevards hand in hand, taking time to stop in the shops and watch the street performers in St. Mark’s Square. Linger on the bridges that cross the canals while the the gondoliers below sing to their passengers.
Consider booking a romantic couples spa treatment and then treat yourself to tickets for Phantom of the Opera, one of the most romantic shows on the Las Vegas Strip. The suites in the Venetian are outfitted with an array of amenities, regardless of which one you book. More lavish suites include jetted tubs and fireplaces. Ask for a room that overlooks the Strip.

When it comes to the Bellagio, the real question is what is not romantic about this resort?

Bellagio’s pools are among the most romantic in Las Vegas, and spas, private cabanas and poolside massage treatments add to the allure. If you and your partner are looking for a dose of culture with your romantic getaway, take some time to check out the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, which offers one of the finest selections of art in the Las Vegas valley.
In the evening, make plans to see O, one of Cirque du Soleil’s most popular show on the Las Vegas Strip, then head out for a romantic meal at one of the restaurants that overlooks the stunning Fountains of Bellagio. If possible, stay in a Grand Lakeview Suite, a 3,001-square-foot luxury suite with a view overlooking the fountains.
