The Azilo pool is a pretty impressive venue. The Moroccan-themed decor has been tastefully implemented and the pool deck has a feel of refinement. Combine those attributes with the 240-foot display screen and state-of-the-art audio and lighting systems, and you have the makings for one awesome pool experience.

Azilo Ultra Pool Reserved Seating

Consider enjoying that big screen and all the pool deck has to offer from your own private cabana or daybed. As reserved seating pricing in Las Vegas tends to be extremely dynamic, particularly on weekends, be sure to check the current pricing and availability for your specific date.

The pricing below was taken on March 27. 2024 for the midweek date of Wednesday May 15 and the weekend date of Saturday May 18.2024. I have also included the number of guests that each reserved seating type can accommodate.

These prices are your food and beverage minimum. This means there is no set “rental fee” for your seating unless you fail to order the food and beverage minimum amount.

Azilo Pool Reserved Seating Sample Pricing Chart
Seating Type# of guests MidweekWeekend
Spa Daybed4$150.00$300.00
Pool Daybed4$250.00$400.00
Poolside couch8$500.00$800.00

Alexandria Pool

Located on the roof atop the convention area, the Alexandria offers great views as well as great drinks from the rooftop Alexandria Pool Bar. Although there are cabanas for rent at this pool they can not be booked in advance online. Once you are at the property you book your cabana directly through the Alexandria Pool bartender.

This pool is family-friendly and is for the exclusive use of registered Sahara guests. These two factors provide an excellent environment to create some pool-time memories with family or friends. The pool deck is considerably smaller than the Azilo Ultra Pool which gives it a much more intimate feel.

Every Saturday from May through September you are able to support the LGBTQI+ community as Elevate works in partnership with Vegas PRIDE. Elevate pool parties provide glamour, comfort, and fun in an intimate, inclusive environment. General admission is only $20.00 per person but if you want to really “up” your pool experience consider purchasing reserved seating. As pricing can be dynamic, be sure to check the current Retro Pool Reserved Seating pricing.
