The Swimming Pool and Spa of The Venetian

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by PDJ on June 12, 2003

The Venetian has an extravagant, five-acre, rooftop pool deck with an Olympic-size swimming pool supplemented by a smaller pool, which is still large by comparison. What distinguishes the swimming pool in The Venetian is the exquisite surroundings of the pool designed like an affluent Venetian garden. (Sorry, it isn’t the gorgeous bodies in swimsuits.)

Against the magnificient backdrop of The Venetian tower, the entrance to the pool area opens up to a plaza-like patio followed by a fountain with lions spouting water from their mouths. Along the patio and the main pool are booths guests can rent, probably for a price, furnished with lounge chairs and tables for private use. I imagine the pool does get crowded in hot weather, but there seemed to be plenty of chairs to relax on.

Canyon Ranch Spaclub is located near the entrance of the deck. Besides the spa, which offers various therapeutic treatments and massages, it has exercise equipment and a 40-foot climbing wall with personal trainers and wide array of classes. It also houses a café, a clothing and boutique shop, and a hair and nail salon. If health and beauty are in your mind, this is the place to be.
