Las Vegas hotel with private swimming pool?

Hi all. I saw a documentary a few years ago about poker players in Las Vegas... they stayed at a hotel room where they had a private swimming pool next to the bedroom, does anyone knows which hotel this is?

Many thanks in advance!

I guess many villas of main 5* hotels do have their own swimming pool (Palms, Wynn, Bellagio, etc.).

Wynn lower level special golf villa have private pools. Usually reserved for big rollers so bring a lot of money. You are best off if they know you already otherwise you will hit a brick wall trying to book. Do not even think of calling regular reservation number unless you want to waste your time and blow smoke up someones ........The first floor rooms also contain one of kind art so the hotel really wants to know the person who is renting. When first open I do not care if you told them you were flying in on your own jet, black card, etc. This would not cut it. Things may have changed. Easy to book 2nd floor rooms if you have money..same private phone number

These units have special walls and are extremely quiet...AC units...You can hear a pin drop, etc when windows are shut. You should be able to find a video of units above first floor units. Also they have dedicated concierge, butler, room service, etc.

Caesars has one or hilton (..room for a pool in an 18,000 sqft villa?) maybe? If the pool extends over the edge of the building, then it's palms or palms place, but they're not very big.

I'm thinking of the film: The Hangover IIRC, they were at Caesars and had a private pool.

"the hangover" (emperors) suite at caesars doesn't have a pool, but the penthouse in the centurion tower does.

If these are the new villas in the Augustus tower, they're ground floor/overlook the main pool area.
