Stay at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas 

Las Vegas is not the place to go low-key, and for comfort, style and nightlife, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas has you covered. With its luxe desert oasis-themed décor, chambers and suites designed to cater to every need, and a pool, spa, and more to enjoy, you’ll never want to check out.  

For entertainment there’s The Theater, a 4,600-person live music venue with three levels including bars and luxury suites plus two VIP lounge areas. Keep an eye on the schedule to take in a show that’s just a short walk away from your chamber. There’s also 24 Oxford, an intimate venue hosting cutting edge artists, and Event Lawn, an outdoor space for shows until the sky.   

Explore the Valley of Fire State Park 

Venture just a 40-minute drive from the bright lights of the city to take in the vast beauty of the Valley of Fire State Park. Established in 1935 with over 40,000 acres of red Aztec sandstone, the park has trees and petroglyphs more than 2,000 years old and is great for camping, picnics and hiking.

Take a Vegas movie tour

From The Fountains of Bellagio and the ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ sign, to the Caesar’s Palace escalators first used in Rain Man then referenced in The Hangover, there are loads of places made famous on the silver screen. Book a tour to see the sights and find out more about the legendary movie productions that’ve made their way to Vegas over the years.  

See some of music’s biggest stars  

For live entertainment, Las Vegas is hard to match. In recent years some of the most beloved singers and bands have performed to audiences of thousands every night for extended residencies. Adele, Usher, Katy Perry, and Bruno Mars have recently graced the stage in the city, and 2024 is bound to bring more to The Strip.  

Virgin Hotels Las Vegas hosted acts like Journey and Lizzo in the last few years, so make sure you're among the first to hear about entertainment coming to the The Theater.
