The Palms always had the space, but now it’s got a new sense of style. The Las Vegas resort and casino is in the middle of a vast $620 million renovation under the ownership of Station Casinos. The results are seen in every corner of the property, especially in the most lavish accommodations.
The crown jewel of the property is the Sky Villa penthouses suites, which sit between the 29 and 32 floors of the Fantasy Tower. They are world-famous for having sweeping views of the entire Las Vegas Strip with dipping pools that hang off the edge of an outdoor balcony.
The only downside was the interior design, which hadn’t changed much since the Palms first opened in 2001. That’s all changed now. The Palms is dramatically redesigning all its rooms, including the Sky Villas, which were completely reimagined by Bentel & Bentel Architects. The decor discards dark leather and dated designs in favor bright imported marble, stone floors, textured wallpaper and ultra-modern light fixtures. Perfect for entertaining large parties, the main living areas features a large bar that wouldn’t look out of place in the hotel lobby downstairs. It backs up to the outdoor patio, where windows open wide to soak in the Vegas breeze.
There are four single-story Sky Villas, which are 5,000 square feet and begin at $25,000 per night. They come with two oversized bedrooms with California King beds, lavish luxurious showers and custom Italian furniture. Relax in the in-room redwood cedar sauna or receive a relaxing beauty treatment in the massage room. When it’s time to socialize, enjoy a game at either a custom lacquer foosball table or mirror-polished stainless-steel pool table.
If that’s not enough, a pair of two-story Sky Villas are offered for $40,000 per night at 8,500 square feet. They feature everything in the single-story versions, but with more space and higher ceilings over two levels. The bar is even bigger, seating up to 17 guests and there is both the foosball table and pool table to enjoy.
The Palms is a great alternative for Las Vegas visitors who want to avoid the chaos of being on the Strip, while still being conveniently close to everything the tourist corridor has to offer. In addition to the in-progress room renovations, the resort has already introduced a redesigned lobby and casino as well as the acclaimed Scotch 80 Prime Steakhouse, Camden Cocktail Lounge and Apex Social Club, a lounge on the 55th floor with stunning views and an outdoor patio. New updates in the works include a revamped pool complex and nightclub.
