Tao Beach Dayclub inside the Venetian Resort has announced it will reopen later this spring after undergoing a major renovation. The space, which has more than doubled its square footage, will have 21 luxury cabanas that can be reserved, including seven with dedicated private plunge pools.

The full menu has not yet been released but a press release promises sushi boats, seafood towers, table-side sashimi carving, and hand rolls, in keeping with the Tao Group’s East Asian bent, though they describe the beach club as “Balinese-inspired.”
