Aria's Sky Suites' guests now have their own private pool

Every 90 minutes, the staff brings out iced teas, chilled towels and smoothie shots

One of the swankiest hotels on the Las Vegas Strip just added a private pool for its discerning guests. The Sky Suites at Aria now have the Sky Pool with its own private entrance, free drinks and luxury amenities.

Palms trees line the pool accessed by a private walkway. The pool area itself is decked out in periwinkle and yellow. Find 125 single and 15 double chaise lounge chairs as well as five daybeds.

Guests here can expect free iced teas, chilled towels, smoothie shots and more rolling out every 90 minutes. Those who want a little something extra can order cocktails and food from the Sky Pool menu. Poolside back and foot massages from the therapists at The Spa at Aria include the Beat the Heat with cold marble stones to help sunbathers stay cool.

Guests can book one of eight cabanas with chairs, flat screen TVs and curtains for privacy. Order one of the cheese and fruit platters delivered by a cabana attendant. Prices start at $400 for weekdays, and $550 for weekends.

Sky Pool is open daily although hours will vary seasonally.

The Sky Suites start at $350 on weeknights and $450 on weekends. Guests who stay here enter through a private entrance, have their own lounge with a daily wine and cheese pairing, access to more than 2,000 electronic newspapers, line passes to the Buffet at Aria and Aria Cafe, free iPad and laptops to use, transportation to and from the airport and more.
