The Mirage

The mirage

The Mirage, Vegas

I’ve always associated myself with the word Mirage, thus the name of this blog. What’s a Mirage?

  1. An optical phenomenon that creates the illusion of water, often with inverted reflections of distant objects, and results from distortion of light by alternate layers of hot and cool air. Also called fata morgana.
  2. Something illusory or unobtainable.
As I once said, “In life, there are things that would be just an illusion, no matter how near they may be.” It’s a fitting description too for one of the expensive hotel-resort constructed in history, The Mirage, a hotel-casino at the Las Vegas Strip. There, on a business trip or vacation, one can forget the worries of everyday life and experience the ephemeral joys of easy life (albeit spent with a high price).


Mirage, unobtainable, yet in a fleeting moment one can enjoy the luxury life has to offer in this grand hotel. Sleep soundly in a comfortable room with quality service and have a view of the wonderful nightlights at the strip before you dose off. Their buffet tops the ranks among the strip, not only with quality service but with fresh and sumptuous food at very affordable prices.


If you are one who enjoy playing online whether puzzles, strategic, role-playing games, or card games such as poker or betting games like those offered by, you can enjoy such at The Mirage. Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Ultimate Texas Hold’em and a lot more are what you can expect to play there.


If like me you are one who does not gamble, here are some of the things you can do when you visit Las Vegas.


Shop. As with other hotels around the strip, The Mirage offers an array of brands to choose from. You don’t need to go far to buy your new pair of shoes and a dress to go with it. There’s the Watch Boutique which showcases the finest watches and assorted jewelry from around the world. There are also shops for snack items, Godiva chocolates, logo merchandise and plush toys that would be great as giveaways to family and friends when you come back home.


Relax. Spend a quiet hour or two relaxing and having a massage, a scrub or facial treatment or the whole package and enjoy your stay even more having that feeling of ease. Pamper yourself – your nails and  even your crowning glory at the best Salon, the Strip has to offer.


Swim. The Mirage pools interconnect through lagoons and has a magnificent cascading waterfall, so picturesque. Enjoy sunbathing or have a leisurely swim in its crystal clear waters.


Enjoy. Golf, Gardens, Dolphins, Aquarium. Boredom is a word that doesn’t exist here so enjoy whichever you fancy, from playing golf to having a stroll at the lush gardens or from watching a dolphin show to the viewing the most colorful fishes around.


Enjoy your stay at The Mirage for it is a mirage after all, you’d only know it’s gone after you come back to work the next day. ^_^

  1. Lovely. For now, it must remain a mirage in my mind. But who knows? Someday I may get there:)

  2. I’ve heard and seen a lot about The Mirage from friends who visited and from a lot of shows. That pic of the pool is truly breathtaking. I hope we can try it out if ever we do go to a trip to Las Vegas. 🙂

  4. When I hear the word mirage the first thing that comes to my head is the book “The Alchemist”.

  8. love your name from the very start. One of my favorite hotel in fact is The One and Only Royal Mirage =)

    The word mirage itself is magical
    like the photo of that man-made water falls.

  10. Sounds like a fantastic place to stay for a vacation. Like you, I don’t gamble but seems like there are so many other things that you can enjoy in this place.

    • I would probably try their slot machines because I don’t know any other game.

  11. This really had the dreamy feel of a mirage. I hope I get to visit that Mirage some day.

  12. Yeah I remember the Mirage in our literature 101 book…and you’ve been using that nick since hehe

  13. Mirage is a nice word. You picked a good name to use in blogging.

  14. my mom and dad had stayed there during their last US trip, they really enjoyed the slot machines in the casino and even won jackpot 4 times which made them very happy 🙂

    i personally have never been there, how i wish i could visit the place too

  15. i am thinking of a synonym for that word…i can’t think one…maybe… “genuinely nice”…ang layo? well, because you are that word to me 🙂

  16. such a lovely place, very relaxing ambiance,, but is too far,… maybe i can go there in my dream lol ^_^

  17. I guess the only time I’ll be able to stay in this hotel is if I win the lottery.
