Encore and Wynn Las Vegas go Gay by Flaunt | Las Vegas, Nevada | My absolute favorite hotel in Las Vegas, Encore and it’s sister property Wynn Las Vegas are changing the concept of the gay getaway with the introduction of Flaunt at Wynn Las Vegas (April 21-24, 2011). This exclusive weekend event features some of the resorts’ hottest amenities, from the muscular performers of Le Rêve to the sizzling dancers of SINATRA Dance with Me and the tanned bodies at Encore Beach Club. Flaunt will change the way gay visitors look at a weekend in Vegas.
A few of my insider TIPS after my visit to Encore. (1). DO NOT miss a full morning at the Spa of the hotel, a sanctuary of surpassing beauty, trust me it will blow your senses, a trip to an ancient Thai temple with all the luxury that Las Vegas has to offer…. I had a 90 minutes massage which left me floating cross the corridors. The Spas at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore were the first two spas in Las Vegas to be recognized with Forbes Five Star awards. Custom-designed with meticulous attention to the care and comfort of our guests The Spas offer the ultimate personal comfort in an inspiring setting of elegance and tranquility.
(2). The shows, SINATRA Dance with Me (which I personally experienced and enjoyed. A revival of Sinatra’s songs with HOT world class dancers bring the lyrics of Frank Sinatra’s most alluring love songs to life on stage with entertaining choreographies) and Le Rêve (which I did not have time to check but heard amazing reviews about it) Offers breathtaking performances in an intimate aqua theater-in-the-round. The show features aerial acrobatics, provocative choreography and artistic athleticism. Live music and elaborate special effects immerse the audience into a world of fantasy, adventure and intrigue.
(3). Diner at Sinatra Restaurant acclaimed Chef Theo Schoenegger creates a culinary salute to Ol’ Blue Eyes featuring modern riffs on classic Italian cooking – all served in his handsome restaurant, brimming with Sinatra charisma in the Encore Tower Suites. Not over yet… the hotel boasts over 16 restaurants even one by Botero.
My favorite drinks spot at the Lake of Dreams with the Parasol Up bar, where you can enjoy a number of fine cocktails while watching the water and color collide below as the accompanying music swells along with the fountains and dancing puppets that also populate the show. It begins every hour on the hour.
