The MGM Grand has a little secret. Tucked away and hidden in plain sight is what was once one of the best-kept secrets in Las Vegas. The Mansions at MGM Grand are among the most luxurious and exclusive accommodations in Vegas. Today, the Mansions are more well known, with all the talk centered on the luxury, extravagance, and exclusivity of these A-lister villas.
The MGM Mansion Villas
Imagine, if you will, a little bit of Tuscany hidden away from the world. A private, exclusive oasis with lush greenery and 18th century-inspired countryside villas. Now imagine that this little slice of heaven was located right in the heart of Las Vegas, at the largest single hotel in the world. The Mansions at the MGM Grand Hotel are precisely this – pure luxury and escapism amid all the Vegas action.
The Mansions are located in a private nook on the property of the MGM Grand. Most people don’t realize they are even there at first, which is how they’ve earned the description of being hidden in plain sight. It’s not necessarily difficult to find the Mansion at the MGM Grand, but the entrances to them are highly guarded by security staff, and only those who are staying there or have been invited by guests are allowed entrance.
The Mansions are exclusive and accessible by invite only. Even those with the financial means to afford such luxurious accommodations need more than just their clout to reserve a stay at one of Mansion’s 29 exclusive villas. The MGM Grand traditionally invites their highest rollers, referred to as “whales” in the world of gambling, to stay at the Mansion. Some celebrities are regularly invited to stay as well.
While you might not personally receive an invite to be a guest at the Villas, you are more than welcome to stay if a guest invites you. If you’re ever invited to stay at the Mansion, stop what you’re doing and change your plans because this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
When invited to stay at the Mansion, you will have your choice of four different Villas. The Villas range in size from 2,400 sq ft – 12,000 sq ft.
The one-bedroom Villa is located in the stunning Atrium, where guests can enjoy a view of the Italian Gardens from their balcony or veranda. Each one-bedroom villa features a large parlor area, dining room, a spa-style bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, and a separate steam sauna/shower.
The two-bedroom Villa features all the amenities of the one-bedroom Villa with the addition of a second bedroom and more square footage. Each of the two bedrooms are large and feature top of the line, luxury bedding. This Villa is perfect for small families or entertaining friends in your elegant, prestigious Villa.
The three-bedroom Villa is an experience of pure luxury. This Villa includes three spacious bedrooms, two of them with one king-size bed each, and the third room with two queen-sized beds. In addition to bathrooms with steam showers and separate jacuzzi bathtubs, guests of the three-bedroom are pampered with access to an indoor swimming pool, dining room, media room, study, massage room, salon, and private elevator access.
Four Bedroom Villa
The largest of the Mansion Villas, the four-bedroom Villa, is pure decadence. Three large bedrooms each feature a luxury king-size bed, with the fourth bedroom having two queen-sized beds. This is the ideal Mansion Villa for large groups, entertaining, and experiencing the ultimate VIP lifestyle in Las Vegas. In addition to all the amenities of the three-bedroom Villa, guests of the Garden Villa also have access to the Mansion bar and billiard room.
One of the most beautiful features of the Mansions at MGM Grand is the Italian Garden. Each Villa of the Mansions overlooks a lush, green Tuscany-inspired garden atrium. Beautiful greenery, sparkling fountains, and immaculate landscaping make it difficult to remember that you’re actually in Las Vegas and not strolling through a quaint Tuscan village. Guests who stay in one of the eight private Garden Villas have direct garden access.
The Villas at the Mansions have their own private pool that is exclusively for MGM Mansion guests. The Mansion pool Las Vegas is smaller than the other pools on the property, but it comes with a sense of exclusivity and impeccable service from staff that lingers in the background, waiting to cater to your every need and whim.

Still, curiosity exists about how much it costs for such VIP, luxurious accommodations. The MGM Grand isn’t very forthcoming about these rates, but best estimates say that you can plan on spending upwards of $5,000 per night for a one-bedroom Villa and up to $15,000 – $20,000 for one of the largest Villas with a premium location.

The Bellagio offers its beautiful fountains and stunning views. The Bellagio, which is also an MGM property, is home to an incredible variety of dining options, from quick, simple bites to high-end restaurants that can take weeks, if not months, to get a reservation at. At the end of the day, it all depends on what your budget is, what your hotel preferences are, and what type of experience you’re looking for from your time in Las Vegas.
The Mansions at MGM Grand are among the most exclusive luxury accommodations in Las Vegas.
