Las Vegas is a city of bright lights, exhilaration, and all day or night partying. Whether you are looking for a place to indulge in extravagance and excitement or a spot to enjoy a romantic getaway for rekindling your romance the MGM Grand Las Vegas is perfect for dating and enjoying one another. The MGM Grand Hotel and Casino is well-known for being one of Vegas’ largest hotels and has a reputation for decadence and luxury. I love it because there is a deep romantic side to the MGM Las Vegas that is pleasant, simple, and even affordable (in Vegas terms). In this article I highlight what the MGM brings to the table for couples and why we think it is the perfect place to woo your sweetheart.
Booking a romantic couples package at the MGM Grand is the start of a getaway full of pampering, room service, buckets of champagne, and more. The Signature is a set of elegant condo towers behind the main building, where every room is a suite that seems to be designed with you and your love in mind. If you prefer not to splurge on ‘The Signature, MGM Las Vegas’ the hotel’s standard rooms offer a luxurious living experience at an affordable cost and are quite impressive. The standard Grand King rooms boast luxury pillow-top Serta mattresses, minibars, and 40” HDTVs, ideal for snugging up together to watch one of your favorite movies. Prepare for an evening out by dressing in the Carrera marble-adorned bathrooms with oversized backlit vanities and stocked with plush Egyptian cotton towels and branded complimentary toiletries.
MGM Grand Spa
There is nothing as relaxing and sensuous as spending some quality time together while you enjoy a heavenly spa experience. At MGM, a couples’ massage package has been designed specifically for newlyweds and pairs who want to experience a massage side-by-side. Feel the stress melt away under the expert fingers of the therapists and step out completely rejuvenated. We recommend you enjoy a massage within the first two days of arriving to kick off your time together.
Experience KA’ by Cirque du Soleil
One of only nine Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas, KÀ is the brilliant and riviting show hosted at the MGM by Cirque de Soleil. The show is very couple friendly and takes you both on a journey with twins who set out to fulfill their destinies. Passion, fear, and courage are explored and beautifully translated in this production which tells a heroic tale of twins who embark on an adventurous journey to fulfill their individual destinies. You and your love can enjoy the show that offers various video projections and headrests with built-in speakers. Sit side-by-side or hold hands with your love as you both slip into another world that defies gravity and offers eclectic visual stimulation.
Eat at an Award Winning Restaurants
Well-presented and delectable food is often the ultimate aphrodisiac and MGM features some of the very best multi-cuisine restaurants to indulge your taste buds. Plan an evening out with your sweetheart and enjoy the red-carpet feel of dining at restaurants like the first 3 Star Michelin Guide winner in Las Vegas – Joël Robuchon or the modern Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan, run by Michelin-starred chef Ho Chee Boon. Whether you are craving for some Lousiana-style Creole cooking (Emeril’s), Japanese delicacies (try Shibuya) or good ol’ American bar and grill food (Wolfgang Puck), leaving the MGM’s premises is optional. I say savor a private and romantic dinner with your sweetheart then make your way back to your love nest that much quicker.
Frolick in the Sands of Vegas
Ask the concierge at MGM Grand for assistance with creating a picnic basket brimming with love. With delectable food and champagne in tow, bask in the glory of a Las Vegas desert sunset at the Valley of Fire or the Red Rock Canyon.
As we always say here – being in love is all about spontaneity and gestures. So if you intend to pop the question to your the MGM Grand can do the planning for you. They hotel has a personal wedding planner to take care of all the details and two beautifully appointed Forever Grand Wedding Chapels.
If getting dolled-up and going dancing is your scene, you will not have to set foot out of MGM Grand. With options like Centrifuge, Rouge, and West Wing Bar located on the premises you and your love can enjoy the best of progressive music as you dance the night away. If you and your love crave a more mellow scene consider the MGM’s 24-hour Whiskey Down which offers blackjack tables, video poker machines, as well as a Brunswick regulation sized pool table that is free for patrons to use (we love freebies here). Couples enjoying a stay at the hotel can also visit the variety show nightclubs Beacher’s Madhouse at a substantially discounted admission rate.
