http://blog.clubdesoleil.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/High-Roller-224x300.jpg

Just when you thought Las Vegas had run out of ways to spin a wheel, along comes The High Roller – a giant Ferris wheel that, at 550 feet, is the tallest in the world. The High Roller opened March 31 and is the centerpiece of The Linq, a $550 million retail, dining and entertainment district on the Strip between the Flamingo Hotel and The Quad.

Tahiti Village is going to the birds this Saturday

http://blog.clubdesoleil.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Squawk.jpg

Imagine an upside down world in which humans had the brains of birds (we know what you’re thinking; just play along) and birds the brains of humans, and in that world the birds could train the humans to fly, catch worms and say “Polly wanna cracker.” In short, teach them to do many of the things birds can do all for the enjoyment of the birds. It would make for fascinating viewing and undoubtedly draw numerous feathered spectators to watch …

Everyone has a different idea of what makes a great vacation. Maybe it’s playing tennis all day and board games all night. Perhaps it’s draining five-footer after five-footer on a putting green. Or it could be getting lost in a good book by a welcoming pool on a warm spring day. Here at Club, we have lots of ways to help you make your visit everything you imagined. Even if it’s doing absolutely nothing, we can help you achieve your …

Don’t risk your Big Game enjoyment. Join us for a great day of food, fun and football this Sunday at Tahiti Joe’s!

http://blog.clubdesoleil.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Broncos-Seahawks-Village-300x200.jpg

The question of where you’re going to watch the Big Game is just as important as who you want to win it. Your enjoyment of the largest sporting spectacle of the year can hinge on factors unrelated to events on the field. Like the width of people’s heads. Pick a venue where the TV screens are too small and you can miss the whole thing on account of a freakish cranium. “Hey, did you see the game yesterday?” “No.” “Why …

We wanna rock! Club 1 entrance gets fresh new look

http://blog.clubdesoleil.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Club-Before-17-150x150.jpg

Your vacation with us begins the moment you arrive, so where better than our front door to make a great first impression? That was the thinking behind our decision to install new landscaping by the Club 1 entrance. We ripped the grass out by the roots and replaced it with decorative stone, widened the stone path to double-door width, fashioned a rock riverbed and planted new foliage. The project required seven tons of stone and took just three days to …
