The Private Oasis Pool is hidden and tucked away to the side of the main pool creating a peaceful and relaxing respite from the crowded scene of the main pool. Usually, there are never more than 25 people present. The large, heated pool is never crowded and anytime you feel like taking a refreshing dip, you’ll pretty much have the pool all to yourself. Everyone must be over 21 which helps foster a very quiet and calm atmosphere.
The Private Oasis Pool is $35 per person and you can purchase tickets at The Mirage concierge. This reserves a luxurious chair all day. When you arrive at the pool, you select where you want to sit and the attendant will place a towel over the cushioned lounge chair and open a large umbrella if you prefer some shade. Since your chair is reserved all day, you can come and go as you please without worrying that someone will steal your spot. The lounge chairs have plenty of space between them and a little side table to place your belongings unlike the chairs at the main pool that have absolutely zero space between them.
Service is great. Attendants constantly walk around to check in on you. You can order food and drinks and they are delivered to you promptly. Either pay the attendant or charge it to your room. Late in the afternoon, they hand out a complimentary sweet. Once they gave out Popsicle, another time it was a refreshing pineapple sorbet, and a different time it was a mini chilled drink, similar to a non-alcoholic daiquiri.
There are two glass water dispensers that you can help yourself to anytime. One has ice water and the other has water filled with a rainbow of fruit that creates a lightly sweetened flavor.
Private Cabanas are located both around the main pool and at the Private Oasis Pool. They can be reserved at The Mirage concierge for $400. You can use your cabana between 10am-6pm. Cabanas are randomly assigned but I was adamant that I wanted my cabana at the Oasis Pool since I detest the main pool. Concierge had to have it approved by the pool manager, Amanda, who only allowed it because it was a weekday.
The cabanas are spacious and have an exceptional fan that keeps the Las Vegas heat at bay. Even better, there are misting fans at the front of the cabana, near your deck area, that can be turned on or off. The little deck area has 3 cushioned lounge chairs, a table with seating for four, and complimentary pool floats. Bring your own sunscreen because it costs $17 at the pool.
Inside the cabana, the fridge is stocked with complimentary water bottles, soda, a fruit plate, and a cheese plate with very nice selections. You also get a basket that has crackers, candy, chips, and other snacks. There are 2 sofas and a 32 inch flat screen TV with lots of channels.
When you get hungry, you can order from three different menus and charge it to your room. The food is brought right to your cabana and is very tasty.
The only complaint we had was that the service was awful. The people renting chairs at the Oasis Pool had constant service but we, who paid $400, only saw an attendant every 2 hours or so and every time we asked for something like more bottled water, it took forever to arrive. Despite the terrible service, we really enjoyed our cabana.
Whether you reserve a single chair or a cabana, the Private Oasis Pool is a must if you don’t want to be a part of the zoo that is the main pool. It is truly a relaxing and pleasant experience.
