Best Pools in Las Vegas

Tao Beach, The Venetian
Tao Beach brings a bit of Bali to the Nevada desert thanks to bamboo trees and Asian-inspired cabanas. Maxim magazine puts on a party here each Saturday, with cover model appearances and model searches. At night, the relaxed daytime atmosphere heats up—literally, with 14-foot fire columns and high-energy music—as an extension of Tao nightclub. As of 2013, beachgoers can order Sunday brunch from the Tao kitchen. Reserve as early as possible for one of the 12 cabanas, and look for the bevy of masseuses and personal body misters to cool you down on request.
When to Go: Saturdays for the Maxim party, Sundays for brunch.
Admission: $20 for men and women, depending on the event.
Open to Non-Hotel Guests? Yes
