MGM Resorts International and New York-based Sydell Group have debuted the new pool oasis at the much-anticipated Park MGM. Channeling the sun-drenched South of France, the vibrant outdoor escape features three pools, an oversized heated spa, 12 cabanas, lounge areas and multiple bars serving up delicious bites and beverages.
“Park MGM’s pool scene was designed as the focus for social gathering, an open-air enclave where guests can connect and unwind,” said Patrick Miller, Park MGM’s president and chief operating officer. “Balancing the energy of Vegas with the sophistication of a European retreat, we’ve created an alluring space that offers a variety of experiences for our guests.”
Guests can mingle among friends at one of three pools – the South Pool, the East Pool or the North Pool – while lively music evokes a cool, laid-back vibe. Martin Brudnizki Design Studio drew inspiration from the natural surroundings of a country estate, incorporating layered horticulture to shape each pool space.
In addition to chaises throughout the deck area, each pool boasts Baja shelf seating and submerged wet decks, allowing guests to sunbathe while staying cool. Those seeking an elevated experience can upgrade to the VIP area by the East Pool, where they’ll find deluxe cushioned chaises.
- Craft Drinks – Three bars offer refreshing poolside cocktails, such as the Park Punch, a frozen pineapple cocktail and mix-and-match craft beer buckets. Guests can keep cool with drinks including young coconut, fresh fruit juices and a Bacardi Dragonberry rum-spiked Frosé topped with ripe strawberries. Vista Bar serves as the main pool bar, featuring a tropics-inspired beverage program and dedicated seating with a view overlooking the pool.
- Poolside Bites – Light bites and poolside fare include mouthwatering dishes ranging from a Watermelon & Arugula Salad to Fajita Chicken Nachos. A Tuna Poke Bowl made with spicy tuna, pickled carrot, English cucumber, green onion, toasted sesame, nori and steamed rice offers a light treat ideal for Vegas’ hot summer days.
- Reserved Seating – Chaise lounges are available for reservation throughout all three pools. Guests who reserve these seats will enjoy complimentary amenities throughout the day from frozen grapes to specialty cocktails.
- Private Cabanas – Twelve private cabanas serve up VIP treatment with deluxe amenities including a 55” LED television; misting system; personal safe; and ample seating with plush cushions, lounges and umbrellas. Cabana guests enjoy a variety of beverages including large-format bottle service and fresh, summery food.
The new pool experience is part of MGM Resorts and Sydell Group’s partnership to transform Monte Carlo Resort and Casino into two new distinct hotel experiences: a Las Vegas version of Sydell’s widely acclaimed NoMad Hotel, and a new luxury resort, Park MGM. Upholding MGM Resorts’ commitment to environmental responsibility, Park MGM’s poolscape incorporates sustainable horticulture, including a selection of climate-appropriate species to mitigate water usage, and palms and fully grown trees salvaged from the existing site.
