Las Vegas has become one of the world’s most sought after tourist destinations, chiefly due to its miles of globally renowned casinos, restaurants, theatres, and shops. The city’s mystifying arrays of lights and myriad of attractions have deservedly earned it the title of the Entertainment Capitol of the World. Captivated by the wonders of “Sin City”, visitors are often inept to realize that beyond the glow of the city’s lights lays a natural landscape rivaling the awe of even the most grandiose of Vegas’ seducements. Diamond Resorts reviews its two resorts in the area, the Polo Towers Villas and the Desert Paradise Resort, with locations that provide convenient access to allurements both manmade and natural.
The first of Diamond Resorts’ properties, Polo Towers Villas, sits atop the world famous Las Vegas Boulevard, and features an impressive view of the city skyline that can be viewed from the rooftop pool or each room’s private balcony. The welcoming lobby established a refined, yet luxurious atmosphere with marble embellishments, Tuscan-inspired décor, and a grand piano being played melodiously in the background. Perfect for nature enthusiasts by day, thrill seekers by night, the resort is located within steps of some of Vegas’ premier attractions, including the Fountains at Bellagio and The Mirage. The country’s second-largest reservoir, Lake Mead, and Red Rock Canyon, which offers unparalleled views of indigenous rock formations, are both a short drive from the Polo Towers.
Tucked away from the neon, noise, and bustle of the strip is the Desert Paradise Resort, the second of Diamond Resorts’ timeshare holdings in Las Vegas. An asylum from the rush of the Entertainment Capital, the spacious suites emphasize the natural beauty of Southern Nevada. With heated pools, hot tubs, an on-site spa, and each suite featuring a full size kitchen, dining area, and living room, the decadent amenities expected in premier Las Vegas resorts are apparent. Hiking, sailing, and fishing opportunities are abundant, and the adventurous are encouraged in making a daytrip to the Hoover Damn or the Grand Canyon. Whether to enjoy Vegas’ indulgences from afar, or to seclude oneself from them, Desert Paradise offers a scenic getaway with the luxury of a resort on the strip.
