In the epicenter of opulence and extravagance, you can win big and spend big.


While casinos, posh hotels,  and all-you-can-eat buffets seem to define the Las Vegas experience on the surface, there’s another, entirely luxurious side to The Strip tailor-made for those with some serious cash to burn. From a decadent $5,000 hamburger to  a $200,000 suite and many one-of-a-kind Las Vegas experiences, there are more than just a few ways to spend big in Sin City.

Yoga Reaches New Heights

Leave it to Las Vegas to create the most exclusive and elevating yoga experience. Maverick Helicopters’ has partnered with Silent Savasana yoga studio to bring HeliYoga Limitless to Las Vegas. This yoga excursion will set you back $3,499 for up to six people, but the memories made will be worth it. A limousine will pick you and your friends up from your hotel and take you to the Las Vegas helicopter terminal. There you’ll board the helicopter for a 20-minute ride to the peaks of Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park.

This remote destination is only accessible by helicopter, so it is almost guaranteed that your 75 minute yoga session will be perfectly serene. The  views of the red rocks are stunning and will leave you breathless. You’ll have 10 to 15 minutes to explore before HeliYoga begins. After class, celebrate with a Champagne toast and a 20-minute flight back over The Strip.

Wine and Dine Like Royalty

Everything’s bigger in Vegas — including  the Happy Half Hour at the High Roller.  The 550-foot-tall High Roller is the  world’s tallest observation wheel and  is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. Along with the best view of The Strip, the Happy Half Hour ticket gives you a 30-minute ride with an in cabin open bar with a bartender. Best time to go? Sunset. Just make sure to bring your camera to document the adventure.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous might agree that SW Steakhouse takes its steaks and desserts to an entire new level of luxury with the Japanese Wagyu Tenderloin and the Louis XIII 23-Karat Gold Bar. Choosing from the best Japanese Wagyu with a quality score of A5 and marble score between 8-10, a 4-ounce tenderloin cut will set you back $240. This extremely rare and exclusive beef is known for its refined sweetness, rich flavor and delicate texture.

After dinner, try the Louis XIII Grand Gold Bar. This $100 chocolate bar comes infused with $2,000 Grand Louis XIII cognac to start. Valrhona Caraibe dark chocolate is filled with Louis XIII caramel and a delicious crunchy praline ganache then spray painted with edible 23-karat gold. The gold bar is served in a custom Louis XIII box alongside Grand Louis XIII ice cream and a few gorgeous truffles. 

When only the best will suffice, visit Joël Robuchon’s three Michelin Star French restaurant, Joël Robuchon, for dinner. Winner of numerous awards including AAA Five Diamond, Forbes Five Star and Wine Spectator’s Grand Award, this extraordinary restaurant caters to a refined palate. The 16-course Degustation Menu is $445 per person and is certain to be a meal you will never forget.

The Fleur Burger at Fleur by Hubert Keller takes the classic burger to an entirely new level. A short list of only 32 people can lay claim to having tried this $5,000 masterpiece. Award-winning Chef Hubert Keller tops a patty of Wagyu beef with foie gras and black truffles, and serves it with a bottle of 1995 Chateau Pétrus 5000 that comes with a personal note from the chef.

After that $5,000 burger, why not wash it down with a divine cocktail and dancing at XS Nightclub? You will need  to pay up that $10,000 you won playing blackjack. Along with XS being named the hottest nightclub in the world and being home to DJs and musicians  like Alesso, Diplo, Kygo and The Chainsmokers, the club features the “Ono.” This extravagant cocktail features rare Rémy Martin Louis XVIII Black Pearl, Charles Heidsieck 1981 Champagne Charlie, freshly-squeezed orange juice,

Sence rose nectar, and apricot puree.  To complete the experience, the cocktail is served in a Baccarat crystal-encrusted champagne glass and comes with a set  of 18-karat gold Mont Blanc cufflinks with genuine stingray leather, featuring solid gold XS logos and a gold, diamond, and Tahitian black pearl pendant necklace.  A procession of 20 or so servers with sparklers in hand present this speciality drink to put this experience over the top.

Of course, for a mere $25, the more frugal can splurge on a mini bottle of champagne at the Moët and Chandon vending machine at Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas. Stop by the front desk to buy your special gold Moët coin and pick out your bottle of Imperial Brut or Imperial Rose. Included with your purchase is its very own mini flute so you can sip in style.

The Sporting Life

Las Vegas offers some incredible golf experiences, and the flagship Topgolf complex is no exception. Almost double the size of a normal Topgolf, the Las Vegas venue covers 105,000 square feet of space with 108 hitting bays, five bars,  a concert venue, two swimming pools and a Callaway Golf fitting studio. For about $8,000, you and 30 of your closest friends and family can party and play like a celebrity in the Hublot Chairman’s Suite. The experiences last for three hours and you get a dedicated bay host, a premium open bar, a private bathroom, a customized menu and unlimited play.

If you would prefer to get your heart pumping, SPEEDVEGAS brings your driving fantasies to life. The Happy Hour of Power is priced at $12,000 and can be shared with up to 12 guests. During the hour, guests will enjoy unlimited laps in the car of their dreams around a Formula One-inspired track. Spend your hour in a Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini or a Shelby.

After a hot day of exploring The Strip, head to The Spa at ARIA for the Majestic Canyon Collagen Facial. This 100-minute facial costs $1,000 and will leave you feeling relaxed and like a kid again. This complete head-to-toe luxurious treatment will detoxify the skin, add vitality, restore elasticity, and improve fine lines and wrinkles. The secret is Valmont’s native cellular collagen mask. The topping on the cake is the tension-releasing hand, arm and foot massage that follows the mask.

Now That’s Entertainment!

For a show you will never forget, check out Cirque du Soleil’s O at the Bellagio. The show is performed in, on and above  a pool of water that is 25 feet deep that holds 1.5 million gallons of water. The show has a cast of international worldclass synchronized swimmers, divers, acrobats and characters. A premium  seat is well worth the $250 price tag.

The Diver’s Dream Package at  Le Rêve gives certified scuba divers a bucket list opportunity to go not just behind the scenes but to actually dive into the 1.1-million-gallon aqua theater during a live show. Le Rêve features comedy and dance along with artistic athleticism and has been voted Best Production Show in Las Vegas by the Southern Nevada Hotel Concierge Association. This VIP package comes with a two-night stay at the Wynn or Encore, tickets to watch Le Rêve, a private backstage tour, a training session with the show’s own dive team as well the chance to witness a show live from an exclusive underwater angle. The Diver’s Dream package is $1,750 for one diver and $2,450 for two divers, so make sure to put some of your table winnings to the side.

Another show not to miss in Las Vegas is Absinthe. Inspired by the cabarets of late 19th century Europe, Absinthe is a rousing blend of circus, burlesque and vaudeville. The $199 Impresarios Reserve ticket not only  gets you a seat at a premium view  table, but it also gets you priority entry and a complimentary drink.

Going All Out

What would Vegas be without over-the- top accommodations? The world’s most expensive hotel suite is found at the Palms Casino Resort. A two-night stay  in this suite will set you back at just $200,000. The 9,000-square-foot, twostory Empathy Suite is a museum in its own regard. British artist Damien Hirst conceptualized the suite and inside you will find some of his most well-known pieces. Guests will also enjoy a custom butterfly-motif mosaic pool, private healing salt room, 17-seat full bar, a fitness room with a Peloton bike, custom made furniture, two massage rooms, California-King beds and a large outdoor terrace with great views of Vegas.

For the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime experience and a cool quarter million dollars, Hyde nightclub in Bellagio offers a waterfront deck to watch and control the famed elaborate choreographed fountains. For $250,000 you get your own VIP table, a gold 30-liter bottle of Jay-Z’s Ace of Spades Champagne delivered  to your table with its very own security team and a gold-plated box. Inside the box is a list of songs and a red button. You choose a song and press the button to set off 4,700 lights and 1,200 fountains of dancing water.
