The leather-lined hallways and marble bedrooms of Caesars Palace villas exude opulence. And any guest can experience the amenities — like an exotic aquarium, swimming pool, and personal theater — for $30,000 a night.
Take the Titus Villa, one of 25 villas at the Las Vegas hotel. The approximately 11,200 square foot space is about 20 times larger than an average 650 square foot hotel room. It consists of three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, an eight-person media room and a 33.5-foot-long swimming pool.
The villa has hosted some of the “most powerful and influential people in the world” – including Barack Obama, Lizzo, Bill Clinton, Aretha Franklin, Bradley Cooper, Justin Bieber, Usher and Cher. — according to Caesars Entertainment Regional President Sean McBurney.
“If you look at the super rich…they want to travel with the same level of luxury that they have at home,” McBurney told CNBC Make it. “They have their private jets. They have these huge houses. And then staying in a…hotel room or even a standard two-bedroom suite is not in keeping with their lifestyle.”
And the amenities don’t stop at the edge of the villa plan.
The luxury of the interior
Upon arrival at Titus Villa, guests are ushered to a private valet entrance and greeted by the hotel’s 24/7 butler service, comprised of a rotating cast of 65 butlers.
When you enter the villa, one of the first rooms you see is the dining room, which can accommodate up to 10 people – even though the villa does not have a kitchen. A large culinary team is on hand to place requested orders, but often customers have food delivered from their favorite Las Vegas restaurants.
“We want you to feel at home,” McBurney says, adding that of the 65 butlers, the staff speaks several different languages. “It means you [can] have whatever your authentic food. We have a great culinary team that can create anything you desire.”
Beneath 20-foot-high vaulted coffered ceilings, a long hallway leads to the living room, which has two sitting areas and a self-playing piano. McBurney says some guests — like band members Imagine Dragons — ignore the piano’s self-play feature, opting to play the instrument themselves.
The bar, which adjoins the billiard room, is stocked according to guests’ preferences, whether it’s tea, whisky, champagne or anything else. And the media room, which contains a home theater and massage chairs, is remarkably lavish with its silk-lined walls.
But that’s still no match for the master bedroom, which features an eight-by-eight-foot bed, steam shower, and tub crafted from “stone imported from around the world,” McBurney says.
A top notch guestbook
Most of the villa’s distinguished guests have written personalized messages in the property’s guestbook: Cher, for example, once wrote in the book: “Caesars, you are the first hotel where I have played alone and it will be the last. Thank you for all the years,” according to McBurney.
Outside of the guestbook, McBurney says his lips are sealed regarding stories about Villa Titus’ most famous visitors. “When you’re in this business, you have to exercise restraint and confidentiality is paramount for these clients,” he says.
Still, if you can afford to pay $30,000 a night, you can join their ranks. Some guests, McBurney says, only stay one night. Others stay for several weeks in a row, alone or with family or friends. McBurney also says top-performing players are offered free stays if they wager what he describes only as an “appropriate level” of money.
The villa is designed to meet a client’s needs so completely that they will never have to leave if they don’t want to. The idea, says McBurney, is to provide luxury to customers without having to engage with the casino or the rest of town.
“Literally, you never have to leave this villa to have an amazing time in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace,” he says.
