What makes a resort?
What makes a resort? It's an interesting question and one you may not have considered before. There are a lot of places around the world that are considered and/or call themselves resorts - there are ski resorts, destination resorts, beach resorts, spa resorts, golf resorts - the list goes on and on. But can anyone just call themselves a resort? Sure they can, it just doesn't necessarily make it true.
A resort isn't just a hotel, and it isn't just a hotel with a restaurant and a pool. A very broad definition of a resort is somewhere you go for rest and relaxation that provides a number of amenities such as a hotel, dining, entertainment and more. A resort is somewhere you can go and essentially have everything you need to rest, relax and enjoy yourself without having to go anywhere else.
Because the resort definition is fairly broad and can cover quite a number of different things, you have to do some thinking and planning when choosing the resort you want to enjoy. Here in Vegas, we have a variety of resorts. Most of them offer similar amenities - hotel, gaming, dining, entertainment, pool and spa. So how do you make your choice? Perhaps the most important question you need to ask yourself is what do you want your experience to be? Do you want the hustle and bustle of the Strip and to be surrounded by other visitors? Do you want something a bit more secluded, where you can get away from the crowd? Is somewhere with 3,000 rooms your style, or 300?
We here at M Resort of course we have an opinion and you can guess what it is. We don't have anything bad to say about our "megaresort" neighbors to the north - it wouldn't be Vegas without them. But one of the things we tried to accomplish with our property is our vision of a "true resort" - somewhere you can get away to and actually rest and relax. Don't get us wrong, there's plenty of action to be had here - from gaming and live entertainment to poolside parties. Heck, even our buffet has a lot of action! Yet M Resort allows you to experience Las Vegas at arm's length, but still offers you the ability to grab hold of Sin City and jump right in if you want.
Sometimes it's hard to enjoy a resort when there are so many other people trying to enjoy it as well. Sometimes you don't want to push your way through the crowded sidewalks. Sometimes, you want your resort to offer you rest and relaxation on top of the excitement and action. Remember, it's your vacation and you should get what you want out of it. If you're looking for the perfect compromise when you come to Vegas, we think we've got it here for you at M.
