In 2010 the Tropicana Las Vegas began an upgrade to their property. One of the first components of this upgrade was a complete reconstruction of the pool area. Lochsa Engineering was selected as the civil engineering firm for the design and construction administration of the entire pool area including demolishing and reconstructing the entire pool deck into a new design reflective of the updated modern theme the Tropicana wished to embrace. As a project manager and licensed engineer with Lochsa Engineering, I was selected to manage the entire project.
Set on almost two acres, guests can experience the ambiance and be able to bask in the glowing reflection of this tropical pool right in the heart of Las Vegas. With a bright, tropical setting that embodies the vibrancy of the resort’s South Beach inspired theme, the pool features an expansive deck with lush landscaping, waterfalls, and private lounge spots. Guests can also try their luck at Tropicana Las Vegas’ swim-up blackjack tables. Guests can lounge poolside on luxurious recliners, while several connected lagoons provide the ideal place to refresh in the water. The pool also premiers a number of exclusive cabanas, complete with fresh fruits, snacks, chilled towels and full bottle service in the heart of a tropical oasis.
