I Heart Steve Wynn

I should've posted this over a month ago but better late than never, right??

We just returned from another exhausting trip from Las Vegas. I say exhausting because I always feel like we need a vacation from our vacation when we return. We stayed at Encore, which quickly became our favorite casino on the strip since we've been coming together almost two years ago. It's our fave for reasons that I will now go into. Please don't think I'm a total snob when I say this but... The class of peeps we see in Encore is vastly different from the rest of the resorts in Vegas. Yes, I like to stay with the wealthy Europeans who come over here. Yes, I like to stay with the stodgy old rich folks who stay there. Even though I don't fall in either category. You know why I like staying with the classy's? They don't walk around the casino wearing bikini's carrying oversized plastic neon-colored glasses of frozen fruity cocktails. There, I said it.

So you can see that when we walked into the main lobby of Encore to check in on a Saturday afternoon and we saw multiple groups of young people who very well could've tried out to to be on "Jersey Shore" (neon cups in hand), we were just a tad bit surprised.. Sure enough, Encore had recently opened up a party pool to resemble Hard Rock's. The goal: To get bachelor/bachelorette partiers from nearby hotel to come spend their $$ in Encore in an attempt to gain additional revenue. Mission accomplished. We were quite relieved by Sunday afternoon when all was back to normal. I know, I sound like such a snob but I'm really not!

I love Encore. I love Wynn. I love Steve Wynn for building both. His taste, the aesthetic, the visual treats around each corner, it's just simply divine. I love walking past two Chanel stores every time we go to dinner. This has to be the only place in the world that Craig has to somehow navigate me away from the windows of two of them, just to go to dinner. It's marvelous! (By the way, as of this post, I do not own any Chanel. Other than some makeup.. But, SOON!! VERY SOON!!)

And the spa in Encore? Don't even get me started. I've never laid my eyes on such a beautiful and opulent place. The treatments aren't what I come here for. It's the sensual therapy on my eyes and brain by just looking around and soaking it all in. The drapes are made of Swarovski crystals and the chaise lounges are heated. Need I say more.. If you're ever in Vegas, I highly recommend that you just peep your head in. Here's a pic of the treatment room hallway:

And now that Paris Hilton has been barred from both properties? It's even classier!! Thank you Steve Wynn. You'll forever by my favorite billionaire resort owner.
