Five-Acre Oasis Creates New Destination for Sun-Worshippers, Gods and Goddesses

LAS VEGAS (March 2010) /PRNewswire/ — With the famed Las Vegas pool season about to heat-up into full swing, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas is ready to take the summer crown with the inspired new Garden of the Gods pool oasis, which makes its grand debut on Friday, March 19.

Already viewed as one of Las Vegas’ most impressive and iconic swimming pools, the water-filled playground is destined to become this year’s ultimate warm-weather Las Vegas experience. To be among the first to experience the new Garden of the Gods, go to www.caesarspalace.com/gog to book hotel, pool and dining accommodations. The “Garden of the Gods Pool & Hotel Package” includes a 3-day, 2-night stay, $25 Garden of the Gods pool credit and a pool bag complete with bag, towel and other necessary pool items. Package begins at $110 per night. Based on availability. Promotion code: PKGCGOG.

The iconic swimming and lounging oasis has been completely redesigned; creating a destination within a destination and featuring eight distinctive swimming pools with lavish amenities and the city’s most attentive cabana servers. The new Fortuna pool features an 18-foot waterfall where guests can challenge Lady Luck at the swim-up blackjack tables.

In addition to the extravagant new pools, there are 44 new private cabanas, each with a stocked refrigerator of juice and water, flat-screen TV, DVD player, iPod docking station, wireless Internet access, ceiling fan and plush furniture. With hundreds of new vibrant blue deck chairs, plush daybeds and loveseat-inspired scoop chairs, guests can even just keep it simple and do nothing else but enjoy a day of sun-worshipping. Completing the Garden of the Gods additions is an all-new whirlpool retreat and an added garden wedding venue.

Designed by famed hospitality firm Allard & Conversano, the Garden of the Gods is situated on three levels at the heart of Caesars Palace. Replete with classically inspired landscaping, statues and fountains, the Garden of the Gods allows guests to find their own experience; from those looking to socialize and connect at the stylish new Fortuna Bar to those who want to enjoy relaxing with a poolside massage. Engineers precisely tracked the movement of the sun and expanded south and westward to ensure the area offers vast sunny and shady nooks.

“One of Las Vegas greatest assets is its abundant sunshine,” says Gary Selesner, president, Caesars Palace. “Guests make trip decisions to escape drab and enjoy warm sunny getaways. The new Garden of the Gods was created to be the definitive resort swimming retreat – a resort within a resort. Here, guests have the freedom to find experiences they particularly will enjoy in a five-acre retreat that perfectly complements the exciting nightlife and award-winning restaurants at Caesars Palace.”

THE POOLS

Fortuna
An 18-foot waterfall is the centerpiece of this pool, where guests can enjoy swim-up blackjack. Guests who wish to socialize and connect gather near the Fortuna (swim-up blackjack) pool, flanked in circular sun lounge couches near the Fortuna Bar, where creative mixologists blend cocktails with freshly squeezed juices.

Apollo
Apollo was the Roman god of light and the sun, so it is only fitting that the pool best suited for sun worshipping is named after this deity. The Apollo pool is positioned at the southwest corridor of the oasis for maximum sun exposure and features five cabanas and six canopied daybeds as well as chaise lounges perfect for soaking in the Las Vegas sun.

Bacchus
Elevated 18-feet in the area, the two Bacchus pools are framed by two graceful curved staircases and available only to invited guests. Private, shallow sun chaise pools, an individual whirlpool and VIP cabanas staffed with butlers are some of the area’s special features.

Neptune
Situated near the Fortuna bar, the Neptune pool is the social hub of the Garden of the Gods – the perfect place to mingle, meet and greet. The Neptune pool features eight cabanas, 10 daybeds (available in three different varieties) and chaise lounge chairs.

Jupiter
The cabana-lined Jupiter pool offers a quiet respite from the social scene. Designed for lengthy lounging, the Jupiter pool is distinctive for its subdued ambient music and large, custom-designed cabanas equipped to provide relaxing spa services from Qua Baths & Spa.

Temple
The crowning centerpiece of Garden of the Gods, Temple is where shade truly meets sun. Families enjoy the large round Temple pool, where young swimmers-in-training often splash under the rotunda’s central fountains and play on the steps around its large perimeter.

Venus
Scheduled to open April 1st, The Venus Pool Club is the most well-appointed and exclusive pool experience in Las Vegas, a sophisticated and secluded European-style retreat from the people who brought you PURE Nightclub. Guests age 21 and older are welcomed to the Venus pool.

SPA TREATMENTS AND SERVICES

For guests looking to indulge not only in the sun but also spa, the world-renowned, award-winning Qua Baths & Spa offers poolside treatments. Spa services also include neck massages at deck chairs as well as full-service massages in the large Jupiter spa cabana.

POOLSIDE COCKTAILS

Created by Matthew Stober, beverage manager and master mixologist, Caesars Palace, a new menu of specialty cocktails — many made with freshly squeezed juices — will quench guests’ thirst.

WEDDINGS AND EVENTS

With eight swimming pools positioned in three tiers, the new Garden of the Gods offers the perfect location for the elaborately catered pool parties, weddings and other group special events. Both Juno and Venus gardens are perfect for small or large ceremonies, with seating for up to 114 guests.
