The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t impacted Las Vegas’ reputation for being flashy, indulgent and over-the-top – and a new 3,500-room mega resort is making sure of that.
Resorts World Las Vegas is coming to Sin City this summer as the $4.3-billion (!) property gears up to welcome guests starting June 24.
The first ground-up development on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a decade, Resorts World Las Vegas sits within walking distance of the Las Vegas Convention Center toward the northern end of Las Vegas Boulevard, on land formerly occupied by the Stardust.
Through a partnership with Hilton, Resorts World Las Vegas will offer luxury guest rooms and suites from three premium Hilton brands – the largest multi-brand deal in Hilton’s history – including the largest Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in the world, one of the first LXR Hotels & Resorts locations in the U.S., and a marquee Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel.
(Each brand will have its own entrance).
“After years of planning and constructing this monumental property with some of the most innovative partners in the industry, Resorts World Las Vegas will redefine the hospitality standard in Las Vegas with unmatched dining and entertainment, more variety of hotel accommodations than anywhere else on the Strip, and the city’s most progressive technology,” said Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas.
Guests can choose from over 40 food and beverage options at Resorts World Las Vegas, ranging from fine-dining and quick-service venues to original and exclusive concepts.
One of the most intriguing options is Famous Foods Street Eats, a food court modelled on Singapore's much-loved hawker centres (with a bit more neon).
A 5,000-seat concert and entertainment venue, set to open later in 2021, will also be outfitted to host a myriad of affairs – from star-studded concerts to convention, corporate and sporting events.
A-listers are expected to be out in full force – some of the venue’s confirmed performers include Celine Dion (she’s baaack), Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, as well as nightclub DJs Zedd and Tiesto.
The resort will feature a multiplicity of experiences in one entertainment complex, with concepts including Zouk Nightclub and AYU Dayclub.
In addition to 250,000 square feet of flexible meeting and banquet space, Resorts World Las Vegas will also feature the first passenger station and tunnel to connect to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) via Elon Musk’s innovative transportation system.
Other amenities include a 117,000 square-foot “next-generation casino floor” and an expansive 5.5-acre pool complex, “the largest pool deck in Las Vegas,” featuring seven unique pool experiences including the only infinity-edge pool on the Strip, as well as a 27,000-square-foot spa.
