Luxor Hotel: Viva Las Vegas

Luxor HotelIf you’re planning a trip to Vegas, what can I say except Lucky You! It’s like being a child in a sweet shop, you won’t know what to do with yourself! I visited last year and am contemplating eloping there with my fiance now we have realised how stressful it is planning a wedding, especially one abroad! Only kidding …

There are loads of places to stay in Vegas and I’m sure you will have heard of many of them from films such as Oceans 11. The Luxor is a newer hotel and is what you would expect from a Las Vegas masterpiece, OTT very OTT. The hotel is magnificent, shaped like an ancient Egyptian pyramid, it certainly stands out and is just a fabulous inside as out. As you enter the hotel you are greeted by giant Egyptian styled statues and a water feature ready for your photographs.

A super modern feel is experienced through the whole of the reception area and outdoors to the pool where I believe a new pool has recently been built. As you enter the elevator to your bedroom you will notice you are moving at an angle rather than vertically which is an odd feeling at first but you get used to the shape of the hotel soon enough.

The bedrooms are nice but need a bit of an uplift, the showers are amazing, absolutely huge and ours was very powerful. The rooms do not have balconies due to the shape of the hotel but are very spacious and let’s face it, if you’re in Vegas, you won’t be spending too much time in the room!

Casinos, casinos, casinos, everywhere you look, you will lose all track of time especially if your flight is ten hours like ours and you’re so jet lagged day and night roll into one!

If you stay at the Luxor take advantage of the buffet but don’t eat for days in advance so you can sample the wonderful variety they offer. I’ve never seen a buffet quite like it – if you’re on a diet, my advice is to make a fresh start on your return home.

The hotel consists of casinos, bars, restaurants, a fast food court, iMax theatre and a few simulators etc. It’s great and probably like nothing you’ve experienced before if this is your first time in Vegas. If you get a chance go and see some of the shows, I watched a comedy act and it was fab, friends of ours saw the Cirque Du Soleil while we were there and thoroughly enjoyed it.
