Nirvana Pool at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas

When the summer heat can reach over 115 degrees cooling off in a sparkling Vegas pool is a must. And when that pool is surrounded by lush landscape, bars and cabanas it’s even better. From lazy rivers to wave pools to Vegas pool parties and spa-like retreats, Las Vegas has plenty of pools to choose that offer added amenities and top-notch service. In fact, the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas has five acres of lush poolside areas. Here’s a look at where you can take the plunge at the Hard Rock.
