After co-hosting the Billboard Music Awards last month in Las Vegas, Ciara is back in town for a girls’ weekend.

The singer, 30, arrived Friday with a big group of her girlfriends, including Kelly Rowland and Serena Williams.

The group kicked off the weekend by taking in aquatics show “Le Reve – The Dream” before heading to Encore Beach Club Saturday for a dance party to tunes spun by DJ and producer Zedd.

According to a source, the group’s bungalow was adjacent to Brazilian soccer superstar Neymar’s bungalow, and Williams posed for a photo with him.

The singer posted part of the festivities on Snapchat, including videos with Williams and Rowland that involved the trio wearing coordinating one-piece swimsuits. (Ciara wore white while Williams and Rowland wore black.)

Later in the evening, the group dined at the Wynn’s Lakeside restaurant where they ate executive chef David Walzog’s Maryland crab cakes, filet mignon, Atlantic salmon, grilled asparagus and vegetables and dessert.

Earlier this week, Ciara posted a sweet video on her Instagram of her and fiancé Russell Wilson visiting a patient at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Though the couple has kept any wedding plans under wraps since Wilson popped the question during a romantic trip to the Seychelles in March, Ciara gushed about her future husband in a recent cover story for Essence.

“I remember telling my friend the kind of guy I wanted: a God-fearing man with a very fun spirit who loves kids and would really, truly care for me,” she said. “Marriage is something I look forward to. I believe in family, and the beauty of two people committing to spend their lives together.”
