Aria Room keys are required for entry but since we
begged and pleaded for a quick peek looked like high-rollers, we were welcomed right in. Our first impression was how big the area was. There are three pools and just as many hot tubs to choose from, all stretched out among tropical trees and plants. One pool that we assumed was angling for its place at the top of the Aria pool chain shoots several fountains in the air.
What struck us most is the CityCenter glass backdrop that stretched up from around the pool area. With the pools tucked at the bottom of these tall reflective buildings, there should be no shortage of rays to soak in or spots to check your tan lines. We assume that also means you can
spy on sun-soakers scope out your chairs from the room before heading down but can’t confirm since, well, we didn’t have a room key.
Word is that their adults-only (a.k.a.
sausagefest topless) section will be called Liquid and opening later this spring. No word yet on how high or low the douchebag factor will be, or if this area will have the stripper poles (our guess is sadly no), but we’ll be back to double-check.
Our prediction is that the Aria pools will be quite a scene this season. If you’re not staying at Aria, you can swim at your own risk at one of these pools. Otherwise, leave an extra room key at the front desk for Mr. Pappagiorgio.
