Being in Las Vegas conjures up imagery of bright lights, non-stop night life and a fast paced existence but there is another aspect of life in the gambling capital of the world. And at One Queensridge Place, an uber upscale apartment complex just far enough from the strip, but close enough for the fun, one can experience that life of tranquility and pampered luxury.

Randy Char, the super accommodating Sr. VP of Sales and Operations is always ready to extol the virtues of this magnificent edifice and it is easy to see why. His stories of the tile inlays in the floors tell of the artisanship that went into creating this palace in the desert. Some 500 mosaic canvases were created out of semi-precious stone and installed throughout the structure; even appearing on the shower walls!

The 218 condominiums are exceedingly spacious with all the accoutrements you would expect from an ultra-opulent complex that starts at $769,000 for a two-bedroom apartment. The three-story penthouse with multiple balconies is over the top with continual hand crafted material all for the mere price of $12.9 million. And the convenient one-bedroom Casitas on the premises for guests of condo owners are spectacular.

There is an inviting, yummy-filled snack bar that serves breakfast and lunch every day, making you think you’re in your own exclusive club house. There is a media room with freshly-made popcorn, and the fact that the property has two hundred holes of golf within a five-mile radius is also a major selling point – not to mention low taxes.

However the on-site spa is just simply incredible and could be the closer! Beautifully appointed, the separate men’s and women’s areas give way to their own palatial indoor whirlpool, steam, sauna with massages and facials booked at your desire, along with an indoor shared lap-pool. The outdoor pool with whirlpool overlooking the mystical dessert and mountains are another added feature, as is the magnificent weather that befalls this desert location.

So if your inclined for the luxury life with the excitement of Vegas, take a gamble, pack your bags and go for a magical tour of one of America’s premier properties that can help make life a joy again!
