You won’t want to miss Dive In Movies on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m., where you can lounge in or by the pool while watching your favorite films on a mesmerizing 60 foot marquee screen. You can also get the VIP treatment with your own private cabana and dedicated server.

Although we’re still missing the temporarily-closed Bare Pool at the Mirage, Moorea Beach Club is still one of our favorite European-style pools in Las Vegas. Located at the Mandalay Bay, Moorea is all about upscale experiences, beautiful views, and toptional fun.
You can escape to a secluded cabana or socialize from a distance on one of the daybeds surrounding an infinity hot tub (currently out of commission due COVID-19 restrictions).Villas, bungalows, and pavilions are available for those looking for even more privacy (and their own private pool).
