Have you ever been to a Vegas pool party in 100 plus degree heat? Well I have and it’s terrible, unless you are one of the lucky few to be sipping champagne in your very own cabana. Unfortunately, cabanas aren’t cheap. During the high season in Vegas, cabanas will run you $2,500 for the day. Who can swing that kind of price tag?

Recently I was put in charge of finding a cabana for, you guessed it, a bachelorette party. Not wanting to disappoint, I asked about the cost of cabanas from all the major hotels, from the Cosmopolitan to the MGM Grand. Surprisingly, each hotel has a very different pricing structure for a day of luxury by the pool. Read on to learn more about how you can score cheap cabana prices in Las Vegas for your next pool party or day of relaxation.

Below are some insider tips for Las Vegas Cabana deals along with what hotel pool gives you the most bang for your buck.

Wait to book. Unlike airline tickets, cabañas are cheaper closer to the date you wish to reserve them. The hotel pools want to fill their reserved spaces, especially on pool party days. Typically if there are several cabanas left on your desired date you will be able to get a price below what is advertised. If you are able to wait until the day of or day before the pool party you would like to attend, you can get up to 50% off the daily rate. Snatching up a Vegas cabana the day of and towards the early afternoon will save you up to 70%. Of course this is a gamble, but what isn’t in Vegas?!

Ask about timing. If the waiting game isn’t your thing, ask your hotel contact what the least expensive day to rent a cabana is. For example, a Friday is much cheaper than a Saturday and of course mid week is going to score you the best deal.

Avoid bigger parties. Could you care less about the famous DJ spinning or the latest reality television  star “hosting” the pool party? If your answer is yes, then your best bet could be renting yourself a cabana at a quieter less promoted pool party.

Pick a quieter cabana. If your main goal is to get into a cabana for some R&R, most Vegas hotels boast several pools, some with a quieter scene. These cabanas rates will be rock bottom in comparison to the pool party rates.

Most hotels charge a flat rate, but rates change depending on the month and day. Some include basic amenities, others come fully stocked.

Additionally, certain hotels have a bar and food minimum. This means, as long as you reach your bar tab minimum, you won’t be charged any extra fees. So your money can go towards champagne and overpriced bottled water. For example, the Cosmopolitan offers this type of pricing even on pool party days.

So grab that bikini and enjoy the Vegas pool scene in style.

Usually made from wood, metal or plastic, cabanas are perfectly shaded shelters that are normally found poolside or on the beach. In Las Vegas, many luxury hotels have cabanas for rent during pool parties, events, or for when you and your guests want to get out of the sun and relax in the shade.

There are many benefits for renting a Vegas cabana. If you’ve ever been to a pool party in Las Vegas, you know that seating can become limited very quickly. With pool cabanas in Vegas, you are able to rent them in advance to secure your party’s seating and ensure that you are all seated together. Most cabanas also come with a complimentary safe for you to store your valuables. With as much sun or shade as you desire, a Las Vegas cabana can be the perfect solution to maximize your Las Vegas experience.

The price of a cabana in Las Vegas can be expensive, especially if you want to rent one at a high-end resort. The prices of food and beverages can also be expensive. If you want the best experience in a cabana rental, be sure to create a spending plan and weigh out all your pros and cons for Vegas cabana rentals.

At most resorts, when you rent a cabana, they usually come equipped with a TV, a safe, complimentary bottled waters, complimentary snacks, towels, and other poolside supplies. At select resorts, you even get a personal server that will take your food and beverage orders. Be sure to read up on the details of your cabana rental before renting it out for the day.
