Best Ways to Cool Down in the Desert


It’s August in Vegas and we’ve got some fresh ways to enjoy the summer and beat the heat– from cool pools, to cool brews and even soothing spa services.

Since the weather’s great most of the year in Las Vegas, you can take advantage of the pool scene until October so taking a dip in a spectacular pool should definitely be on the stay cool list!

The M Pool is known for its spacious deck and upscale amenities. Daybeds provide a front row view that’s perfect for people-watching and offers a convenient way to take a dip.  VIP cabanas are equipped with a personal whirlpool hot tub (that can fit up to four of your friends), flat screen television, ceiling fan and a refrigerator to keep all your favorite libations cold. For an alternative to cabanas and daybeds, take up residence in one of the water chairs that are placed directly in the pool to get the best of both worlds.  But you need to be quick, water chairs are issued on a first-come, first-served basis!

DayDream Pool Club at M Resort is another pool alterative that’s open exclusively for adults 21 and over every Saturday, Sunday and Monday and provides its own brand of poolside fun.  The party gets into full gear with a list of celebrity DJ’s setting the scene for mixing and mingling and enjoying frosty libations around the ice-railed bar or hand-delivered to you by one of the friendly servers.

There are plenty of ways to cool off indoors too.  Pamper your summer skin with a Tropical Fruit Polish Massage just steps away from the pool inside Spa Mio.  There’s a reason this spa is one of only 105 in the world to be awarded with the Four Star award:  Impeccable service and amenities are a mainstay at this must-try spa.  The one-of-a-kind Tropical Fruit Polish offers a saltmousse exfoliation treatment and incorporates papaya-pineapple or mango passion fruit to soothe and brighten your skin.

If getting out of the sun means catching the biggest sports games, then 32° Beer Bar is your ticket.  Not only can you catch all the sports action on too many screens to count, but you can have your pick of over 90 select and craft beers on tap at the coldest temperature in town.  Classic lagers, ales and even stouts are on the lengthy menu for both the discerning beer authority or if you just want to order your favorite cold one.  Either way, staying cool in the dessert could be easier and a lot more fun than you ever thought!
