The weather is warming up which means it is nearly pool season. Las Vegas is home to some of the most luxurious and sophisticated pool scenes in the world with crystal clear water, bubbling hot tubs, palm trees, cabanas, DJs, and endless bottles of premium liquor. The pool at MGM Grand is no different. Considered one of the best pool party destinations in Las Vegas, the Grand Pool Complex offers guests a whopping 6.5 acres of fun with four refreshing swimming pools, three whirlpools, beautiful cascading waterfalls, and many other amenities. There is also an adults-only pool available for guests age 21 or older. Here is a look at what you can expect when you visit the MGM hotel pools.
MGM Grand Pool Complex
When temperatures start to push triple digits, it’s time to figure out the best place to cool off. While there are many options in Las Vegas, few exceed the grandeur of the MGM Grand Pool Complex. Whether you want to lay out all day on a comfy daybed or grab a tube and float down the famous Lazy River, MGM is all about comfort and relaxation. At the MGM Grand Hotel, you will find everything you need under one roof.
Interested in food and drink? There is a menu available which allows you to order a few snacks that you can devour as you soak in the sun. You can also splurge on a poolside massage. There is no better way to relieve your tensions than with a long and relaxing massage performed by a licensed massage therapist. If you really want an epic pool party experience, consider renting a spacious cabana. There is enough room for up to eight people in these cabanas. They are even equipped with flat screen TVs, personalized food and bottle service, and offer amazing views that overlook the pools.
Wet Republic Ultra Pool
If you want a more adult-themed pool party, consider heading to the Web Republic Ultra Pool at MGM Grand. The sprawling dayclub offers multiple pools, DJs, daybeds, lounges, and cabanas in a 53,000 square foot venue. Wet Republic is open Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11 AM to 5 PM and has a cover charge that ranges from $20 to $100, depending on the day and the DJ. There is also an average line wait of between 30 minutes and 2 hours. However, the wait is worth is because once you step foot into the Ultra Pool you won’t want to leave.
Wet Republic Ultra Pool recently underwent a number of renovations. The first phase unveiled an expanded DJ booth which serves as the location for some of the best DJs in the world. Above the DJ booths you will find an LED display that boasts enhanced installations and special effects. Of course, guests can also rent party cabanas and bungalows which offer plenty of room for multiple friends. Along with the other updates to the pool area, Wet Republic added an additional 35 feet to the already 60-foot marble topped bar.
If you are interested in visiting Wet Republic Ultra Pool, there are a few things you should know. First, it can be somewhat difficult to find depending on how you enter the hotel. There is a valet and drop off area for the pool in front of the hotel’s convention center. From there, it’s just a 3-minute walk to the door. However, if you go through the north side of the garage or the casino, you will need to walk a bit to get to the pool. Before you arrive, make sure that you meet the dress code. Sport stylish pool attire and stay away from items like jeans, athletic wear, cargo shorts, torn clothing, and pants.
