Holiday Must-Haves, Must-Tastes and Must-Sees at the M Resort

We've set up our holiday decorations - wreaths, lights, Santa's sleigh and the nation's tallest Christmas Tree. In addition to all the great d?cor, we've introduced specialty holiday cocktails at our destination bars, menu items for Christmas day in our restaurants and featured seasonal specials in our patisserie. With so much to see and taste this December, we went to work to compile our list of holiday must-haves, must-tastes and must-sees while you're at the M Resort this month.

Here are our recommendations (in no particular numerical order):


  1. BabyCakesblogPumpkin Apple Vanilla Muffins inside Baby Cakes (there's also Pumpkin Almond Scones that are amazing!) Ultra-moist with just the right amount of sweetness, these delicious muffins are good any time of day.
  2. Marinelli's Ravioli of Winter Squash, crisp pancetta, with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme pesto. A December dining favorite, the ravioli hits the spot this month. To sweeten the deal, Marinelli's is offering a complimentary pasta entr?e with the purchase of one, Sun-Thurs.
  3. The Caf? Saint Nick. This coffee drinks packs a great punch. It's made with Peppermint Schnapps, Godiva Chocolate liqueur and Bailey's Irish Cream. Of course, you can't forget to top it off with whipped cream and a candy cane!


  1. TreeLighting3Well, we had to put our tree on the list as a Must-See because it is after all the nation's tallest Christmas Tree. It's lit nightly in our piazza.
  2. The 35 gingerbread houses created by Clark County elementary schools. The talent and creativity of our local elementary school students and teachers will blow you away. The houses are on display under our grand staircase in front of Spa Mio.


  1. Gingerbread House Kit for the family. Once you see the elementary school gingerbread houses we know you'll want to create one of your own. We have gingerbread houses available at Baby Cakes for just $7.95.
  2. An iMagine Rewards card. Qualified members benefit all month long with free gifts including wine, champagne, holiday shirts, platters, ornaments, aprons and more.
  3. Gift card from the M Resort. Why not give an entire resort as a gift? You can purchase gift cards in any denomination to use at our spa, destination bars or restaurants. Plus, if you're an iMagine Rewards Card member (see above about that) you receive 25% off gift cards when you use your points.

$18 wine from Baby Cakes. Need a gift for the holiday party? A stocking stuffer for an adult or just want to indulge yourself? We have great Rieslings and Pinot Noirs available for just $18 inside Baby Cakes.
