As we all know Las Vegas is not just the city of extravagance, bright lights, and slot machines. It is a great honeymoon destination and a place to rekindle those romantic flames that first brought you and your special someone together. We believe that spending some quality time with your love in Las Vegas need not be an expensive affair. Well-known for being one of the most affordable Las Vegas hotels, the Excalibur Las Vegas is perfect for romance and dating. I particularly love the Excalibur Hotel and Casino for its fun-filled mythical ambience that makes it the perfect adult Disneyland similar to the MGM Grand. From the beautiful castle to the delectable Excalibur buffet, getting away together on a budget has never been this grand.
Named after the mythical sword of King Arthur, the Excalibur Hotel and Casino weaves the Medieval Arthurian theme throughout the main façade of the hotel, guest rooms, and the permanent shows that are exclusive to the hotel. With more than 4,008 guest rooms, a massive gaming space of 100,000 square feet, a spa and fitness center that sprawls out over 13,000 square feet, and more than six restaurants excluding the food court and room service, Excalibur Las Vegas is not just about choices but realistic ones.
Castle-Themed Rooms at Excalibur
Each standard room in the hotel is castle-themed – be sure to request one king-sized bed. Well-appointed standard rooms featuring warm tones and hardwood furnishings, a 42” plasma TV, complimentary WiFi, and glass-door shower stalls in every room I’m confident you cannot be disappointed. The basic amenities offered are more than enough to make your romantic getaway comfortable and luxurious. If easy access to the spa and pool area is important to you both, you can choose to upgrade to the recently remodeled widescreen/contemporary rooms that are located in the Spa Tower. Spending a romantic night in a castle is a fairytale experience you both will cherish for years to come. Spice up your time together with a sexy and sweet bondage session!
The big castle on the Las Vegas Strip boasts dining options that would really make a King and Queen happy. The Tournament of Kings Dinner Theater features Medieval décor, a full bar, and a lively ambience complete with a medieval-themed show with jousting, sword-fighting and dragons thrown in. Though The Steakhouse at Camelot is classy and expensive, the swell meal deals offered make it affordable even by Vegas standards. Dick’s Last Resort at the Excalibur may no be everyone’s cup of tea though. Staying true to the format of Dick’s restaurants, the servers are specifically trained to hurl insults while they serve food – try it only if you have an appetite for sour humor.
The Excalibur Buffet takes the cake for contemporary and affordable meals. The newly designed buffet features an interactive dessert station, and six food stations serving a variety of cuisine. If you happen to be at the Excalibur on Friday, do not miss the seafood Excalibur buffet that serves the best of crab legs, sushi, crawfish, lobster polenta, and other deletable seafood dishes. Open throughout the day, you and your love can also opt for an All Day Pass, Buffet to Go or All-You-Can-Drink meal tickets.
Excalibur’s Date Night Offerings
Las Vegas is synonymous with entertainment and partying; and Excalibur Hotel and Casino leaves no stone unturned in ensuring that you and your love have your pick of entertainment options within the hotel. From the popular dinner show Tournament of Kings to The Australian Bee Gees show, there is a wide variety of couple-friendly shows to choose from. Stop for a drink or dance the night away at the Octane Lounge and The Lounge at Casino Level. The Castle Walk at Excalibur Las Vegas is a promenade located right above the casino. Hold your sweetheart’s hand as you walk and shop amongst street vendors in a Medieval bazaar, an experience that is re-created just for you.
An indoor walkway connects the Excalibur to the Luxor Hotel, so you both can conveniently walk into the pyramid-shaped hotel to get a taste of Egyptian royalty if you are in the mood. We covered 6 Reasons the Luxor Hotel is a Lovely Spot of couples as well. The Excalibur makes dating simple and convenient for the times you want to explore outside of your room.
What would a castle be without a moat? The Excalibur Las Vegas castle features myriad pools that are better than just any moat. There are four luxurious pools to choose from, more than 17 cabanas, 30,000 square feet of deck space, and easy access to the Drenched restaurant that offers poolside dining and a full-service bar.
There is nothing quite as relaxing as spending some quality time with your special someone while you enjoy a blissful spa service. Moderately-priced, The Spa at Excalibur offers many massage and beauty treatment options to ensure that you both are relaxed and glowing in time for your date night. Use of the state-of-the-art fitness center is complementary with the resort fees, so spend some time indulging in a couple’s workout before you both start the day.
