    So Mrs. Ocean and I are looking to get away on a babymoon ... naturally, I'm looking for an angle to parlay this into a Vegas trip. She wants, more than anything, to hit a beach to just relax, read, and take it easy in a quiet environment.

    Given her love of Vegas spas, I was thinking maybe there would be a way to work this in Vegas if there's a quiet enough pool. I usually have gone for the "bigger is better" pool experiences, so I'm less well-versed in the quiet side of pool life.

    Any suggestions on something more laid back, quiet, and removed from the pool party scene? I've thought about Mandalay Bay ... maybe the Wynn Tower Suites pool? Any other recommendations? Thanks!

    the mansion pool is the only one I know of that fits that to a T.

    a lot depends on the time of year and time of the week though. earlier this spring midweek, you can find things less crowded than July 4 weekend, etc.

    Delano Beach Club pool. It's quiet and relaxing. You also can use the beach part of Mandalay bay.

    Wynn tower suites pools is usually pretty quiet (esp. Midweek), and also a very short walk from the room which is nice.

    We swim in the working-folks end of the pool, so to say. (Go to Kauai.)

    Westin Lake Las Vegas. Alas, no gambling. (Go to Kauai.)

    JW Marriott Las Vegas. Love the spa. Underrated pool. With your play the Bluehairs will part when you enter Rampart Casino -- bring a hazmat mask. Or take your play over to RR. (Go to Kauai.)

    Oh, shit, you said Strip.

    (Go to Kauai.)

    May have to try something midweek during the spring ... I think it's a long shot to get this pushed through, so I may just wait until July and go nuts with the shenanigans instead!

    I have a trade show M-W 8/15-8/17. I've talked to various circles of friends -- degens, golfers -- about meeting up the Friday leading in for the weekend.

    Four Seasons might be another option.
