Vdara Pool

The Vdara pools range from a sprawling rooftop Sky Pool to a series of plunge pools that can be used for spa related purposes. The rooftop pool at Vdara City Center is an impressive 40,000 square feet in size, and when you’re not swimming in it, you can sunbathe on the surrounding patio, wander over to the open-air lounge, or enjoy the views of the Vegas Strip. Some of the smaller plunge pools at Vdara Hotel Vegas surround the larger pool. These pools are relatively deep, and while some are warm, others are cold. Soaking in the plunge pools can help stimulate the immune system, as well as increase circulation, among other things.

This rooftop hangout area extends over Harmon Circle and the hotel’s porte cochere. When you’re not swimming or soaking in the rooftop pools at Vdara Hotel Vegas, you can rent a cabana. Some of the poolside cabanas are spa cabanas that are used for things such as massages. If you want a more complete spa treatment, you can always visit the hotel’s stunning on-site spa. Like the rooftop pool and lounge area, the spa at the Vdara Hotel boasts some plunge pools that you can enjoy at your leisure.

A playful atmosphere characterizes the rooftop pool at Vdara City Center, and often times, talented DJs show up to add some extra flare. When the sun is out, which it usually is in Vegas, hanging out on the rooftop at the Vdara Hotel is about as ideal as it gets. It can surely make for an excellent lead up to a night at one of the exciting Vegas bars or clubs. When you’re not enjoying the Vdara pools, there will be other ways to keep busy at the hotel, especially if you are staying in one of the well-equipped suites, rooms, or penthouses.

Solar convergence or “death ray” (2011)

The building’s reflective surface and concave design create a “solar convergence”, in which the reflected rays of the sun can create dangerously hot conditions at particular points on the pool deck. As the sun’s position in the sky changes during the day, the problem affects different areas of the deck.
