It’s officially pool season in Las Vegas and just in time for the rising temperatures, several hotels are welcoming vacationers looking for some poolside fun with new pool names, new cocktails and even a few special pool packages.

Earlier this month, The Siegel Group—parent company to Rumor Boutique Hotel and Artisan Hotel Boutique—announced both Rumor and Artisan will be kicking off the season with new names for each of their pools. GossipThe Pool at Rumor and Naked Pool at the Artisan (pictured) will each offer a completely different vibe from other hotels on the Strip, according to Michael Crandall, director of business affairs for The Siegel Group.

Gossip—The Pool at Rumor is for those looking for a Palm Springs meets LA, meets Vegas, type of environment—cool, sexy and relaxed,” Crandall explains. “For those looking for something a bit more rock ‘n roll and voyeuristic, Naked Pool at the Artisan will have plenty of both.”

At each resort, guests will find live DJs, new distinctive drinks and intimate cabanas and lounging areas. Guests at Gossip—the Pool at Rumor, for instance, can catch some sun on a poolside chaise with a Rumor Mill daiquiri or Tipsy Tea cocktail, or relax on a grassy knoll in a hammock. And at Naked Pool at the Artisan, visitors can lounge in a private cabana with a Naked daiquiri or Cherry Seduction in-hand, or lay out on an oversized daybed surrounded by palm trees and slow running fountains.

Each pool will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily throughout the summer season. For more information, visit or

Vacationers can also head to The Flamingo, offering a 15-acre tropical poolside retreat, complete with interconnected lagoon-style pools, a cascading waterfall and a seasonal waterslide. And with the hotel’s Summer Fabulous Deluxe Pool package, guests receive accommodations in a deluxe guestroom and two complimentary poolside drinks. Rates start at $75 per night.

The pool at Flamingo also offers 28 luxurious daybed/cabanas available for rent on a daily basis. Each daybed/cabana comes complete with an array of amenities, including a complimentary bottle with three mixers, a fruit platter, two lounge chairs and plasma TV, a ceiling fan, mini-refrigerator, four bottles of water, rolled ice towels and wireless Internet access, as well as a VIP cabana host, personalized cocktail service and safe lock box.

Meanwhile, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore both boast heated pools ideally positioned amid the properties’ lush gardens.

The pools at Encore, inspired by the festive ambiance of the French Riviera, are each located at the center of the property. Both the resort pool and the European pool offer views of the hotel’s bars, restaurants and casino. Over at Wynn Las Vegas, guests will find two spacious resort pools, a European-style bathing pool and two jacuzzis. One level up, guests staying in the Tower Suites can enjoy exclusive access to two quieter pools and food service from Tableau.

For the ultimate in luxury poolside lounging, recommend reserving a private cabana. Available at both properties, cabanas offer a stocked mini-fridge with water and soda, pretzels and candy bars (only at Encore), plasma TV, ceiling fan, reserved lounge chairs and patio, table with chairs and sofa, misting system, safe and cordless phone. Cabana rentals start at $300 per day or $600 per night, a rate that includes accommodations in a Parlor or Salon Suite. For more information, call (866) 770-7410 or visit
