    What are the five best amenities at Encore Tower Suites?

    Encore Tower Suites offers a host of top-notch amenities. Here are five of the best:

    1. The Spas at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas were the first two spas in Las Vegas to be recognized with Forbes Five-Star awards. Custom-designed with meticulous attention to your care and comfort, the spas are elegant and tranquil. Natural décor elements and flowing water combine with a service approach that emphasizes the “treat” in treatments to create a uniquely immersive and emotive experience.

    2. The golf course at Wynn Las Vegas — located on hallowed grounds that played host to 50 years of PGA and LGPA Tour events — was built upon a championship legacy. Designed by world-famous architect Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn, the 18-hole, 7,042-yard, par-70 golf course features dramatic elevations once considered impossible to create on the Las Vegas Strip.

    3. Le Rêve, presented exclusively at Wynn Las Vegas, offers breathtaking performances in an intimate aqua theater-in-the-round. The show features aerial acrobatics, provocative choreography and artistic athleticism. Live music and elaborate special effects immerse you into a world of fantasy, adventure and intrigue.

    4. One of the thrills of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas is the incredible array of international, exclusive and unique shopping boutiques. The Esplanades at Wynn and Encore are home to the only U.S. boutique outside of Manhattan from famous shoe designer Manolo Blahnik and America’s sole Rolex branded store. The repertoire of retailers includes Alexander McQueen, Brioni, Cartier, Chanel, Dior, Graff, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Oscar de la Renta and Wynn & Company Jewelry. The eponymous Wynn LVNV also features home furnishings and accessories inspired by the rooms and restaurants of the resort. If you need help with the vast selection, personal shoppers are always on call.

    5. Wynn Las Vegas and Encore boast beautiful, heated pools artfully positioned amid manicured gardens. Wynn Las Vegas features two spacious resort pools, a European-style bathing pool and two Jacuzzi spas. One level up, guests staying in the Tower Suites enjoy exclusive access to two quieter pools and food service from Tableau.

    What is the design style of Encore Tower Suites?

    Roger Thomas, executive vice president of Wynn Design and Development, has filled Encore — the new signature resort in the Wynn collection — with environments unlike anything anywhere. Encore’s multitude of amenities and array of leisure activities live within an eclectic collection of nooks and neighborhoods that reveal surprises and memorable moments around every corner. Intent on creating a personal, one-of-a-kind experience for every guest, each decorative element — from the flooring to the floral arrangements — has the distinction of being custom, commissioned, handmade, antique, priceless, genuine or various combinations therein.
     
    Setting new benchmarks for innovative design, Encore keeps an indoor-outdoor atmosphere thanks to its sunlit corridors, flowering atria and sprawling pools. Defying casino convention, intimate chambered parlors replace the traditionally sprawling casino floor. Flocks of vibrant butterflies fill the resort with whimsy and portend good luck for all visitors. These are but a few of the signature style elements that define Encore as a true design achievement. The rest we invite you to discover for yourself.
