Over the top: Three of Sin City’s priciest indulgences

This is a town synonymous with high rollers and low inhibitions, where opulence, extravagance and indulgence come intertwined in the city’s DNA. There are countless luxurious experiences available here. And now for three of the swankiest of the swank.

Le Rêve — The Dream Diver’s Dream Package
Sharks are OK and all, squid’s are passably neat, but let’s face it, jellyfish are so passé. So what’s a scuba diver in pursuit of new underwater creatures to ogle to do? Splurge for Le Rêve’s Diver’s Dream package at Wynn Las Vegas, obviously.
If you’re not familiar with Le Rêve, you will be, as the price ($1,999 for one diver, $2,600 for two) includes a Dream Seating ticket to a performance, large, plush seats with extended leg room and private high-definition underwater and behind-the-scenes video monitors, as well as a guided backstage tour of the production.
What will you will see during the show?
The show is an underwater acrobatic spectacle set in an aqua theater-in-the-round and featuring, among other things, 80-foot plunges, divers leaping from a massive wedding cake, synchronized dance moves and more ebullient splashing than a toddler’s bath time.
Here’s the thing, though: You’ll view it from a totally different vantage point.
After taking an SDI Certified scuba-training session with the Le Rêve diving team — participants must be certified divers and deemed qualified to participate at least seven days before the chosen dive date — you’ll get to take a dive into the 1.1-million gallon aqua theater during an actual show.
The package also includes a two-night stay in a Wynn Deluxe Resort room or an Encore Resort Suite, so you
can rest your head and dream new dreams after this Dream comes true. wynnlasvegas.com

A GOURMET MEAL WITH A BEEFY PRICE TAG

Fleur BURGER 5000
The only thing that will melt away more quickly than this burger is the disposable income in your wallet.
You literally could not eat enough Big Macs over the course of an entire lifetime to match this bad boy’s $5,000 price tag and still remain among the living.
What makes it so special?
Start with the Wagyu beef patty, cut from a Japanese cattle breed whose meat is known for being as tender
as your nose after insulting Mike Tyson’s mom
to his tattooed face.
Add some foie gras and black truffles, and your
taste buds will feel like the next contestant on the
“Price is Right.”
It’s not just the burger at Fleur by Hubert Keller that’s the attraction here, but also what you wash it down with: a bottle of 1995 Chateau Pétrus Bordeaux, which alone costs about $2,500.
The wine is served in a German-made Ichendorf glass, which you keep. A certificate of authenticity also will be mailed to you. mandalaybay.mgmresorts.com

OVERLOOK HOT SPOT FOR A COOL $60K

The KAOS Villa package
Vegas’ newest hot spot — and we’re talking really hot, like a cross between magma, Tehran in June and a freshly poured cup of McDonald’s coffee — is akin to a nightclub/dayclub on a steady diet of creatine and Cristal: bigger and more luxe-than-thou, the indoor/outdoor party palace boasts a seismic sound system outfitted with more than 125 subwoofers, a Tesla-coil enhanced ceiling, in excess of 50 million pixels of LED video mapping and more pools than any dayclub in the country.
Of course, there’s a headless, 60-foot-tall, anatomically correct sculpture from artist Damien Hirst looming over the dayclub, bronze buttocks and all.
And you can take it all in like a boss without ever leaving the property, partying day and night for a mere $60K a pop per night with the Kaos Villa package.
First, you get an uber-swanky suite that overlooks the dayclub for a base price of $10,000. Then, for another $50,000 in add-ons, you get access to and beverage credit at the “Owner’s Cabana” below, which comes outfitted with private pools. Credit for services by Salon by Priscilla Valles is also included, which helps utilize the beauty counter in the room.
And naturally, you’ll be awakened in the morning by a butler who will use the Kaos water cannons as an alarm clock to get you up and at those Bloody Marys.
Finally, you’ll be outfitted in custom KAOS robes, because in all seriousness, who can be bothered to put on pants during times like these? kaosvegasreservations.com
