Amid the electric atmosphere and splendour of the Las Vegas Strip sits the home of one of its newest additions - Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Packaged as one of the ‘hippest’ properties this desert destination has to offer, its ultra-colourful décor is catered to a youthful, yet sophisticated clientele.
Planet Hollywood (pH) provides all of the anticipated trappings of a conventional Vegas resort and then some. An expansive gaming area, eclectic dining facilities, unique nightclubs and a string of the country’s best retailers amidst The Miracle Mile Shops, brings flare to Las Vegas Boulevard as it focuses on all that is modern-day Hollywood.
Described as the house that fame built, its 3-acre gaming facility provides it all for the enthusiastic gambler. For Blackjack and Roulette lovers pH adds an extra attraction, or distraction, in its titillating Pleasure Pit. Beautiful women dressed in scintillating lingerie deal to patrons while go-go dancers straddle stripper poles in even more revealing evening attire. However, if it’s sports betting you seek, The Playing Field is your game. All bets are on with 33 plasma televisions, 2 jumbo-sized screens, a VIP Race Area and of course a sprawling full bar dedicated to making every wager more enjoyable.
Once in ‘the city that never sleeps‘, pH’s accommodations make resting after an evening of clubbing an experience in itself. Whether it’s the Hollywood Hip Room, Resort Room, Resort Vista or a selection of magnificent suites, all include their own piece of movie memorabilia from the actual film itself. These spacious rooms pride themselves with a 42” plasma television, internet connection and a luxurious bathroom with a separate oversized soaking tub along with His and Hers adjacent sinks. Also, a request for a ‘fountain view’ will make falling asleep and waking up blissful, as you adorn to the sights and sounds of the splendorous Bellagio aquatic show.
The 2 pools neighbouring one another, provide a cool relief from the desert climate. The simple yet spacious design of pH’s outdoor facility offers much room for catching up on some long-needed rays. The grounds come complete with Tiki Huts, whirlpools and friendly alcohol-transfer technicians who are sure to keep you dancing to Friday and Saturday‘s DJ-spun favourites.
The resort’s illustrious Peep Show starring Holly Madison from E!’s ‘The Girl Next Door’ is pegged to be the best show on the planet. Well, maybe not the entire planet.
