Genting's Resorts World Las Vegas to include new facilities

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 25): Genting Bhd's Resorts World Las Vegas has unveiled its updated plans for the US$4.3 billion luxury resort-casino to include new amenities.

According to Cision Distribution by PR Newswire on Nov 21, Resorts World Las Vegas, which is projected to open in summer of 2021, will combine traditional and modern architecture, weaving a new luxury hotel experience into the fabric of Las Vegas with Asian-inspired touches, progressive technology and world-class guest service.

The new amenities include a 5,000-capacity state-of-the-art theatre, scalable to host A-list residencies and corporate events; a dynamic 75,000 square foot (sq ft) nightlife and day-life concept; a 50-foot diameter video globe, which will display over 6,000 sq ft of captivating LED content; and additional luxury suites, villas and penthouses with individual lobby experiences, open balconies and a sky casino, the news portal reported.

Cision Distribution by PR Newswire, quoting Resorts World Las Vegas president Scott Sibella, said the team has been working diligently to perfect the vision for the luxury resort-casino, and the group is excited to begin sharing that concept with Las Vegas and the greater hospitality communities.

"We believe Resorts World's unique design and commitment to providing cutting-edge amenities and captivating experiences, is the foundation to curating a thoughtful resort experience that aims to redefine the luxury hotel standard in Las Vegas," he added.

In addition to the new entertainment venues and guest room enhancements, the resort is expected to feature a myriad of premier facilities and amenities.

The premier facilities include a 110,000 sq ft casino complete with slots, table games, high-limit gaming areas, private gaming salons, dedicated poker room, and a 14,000 sq ft entertainment zone, which includes a race and sports book and features live entertainment; two resort towers housing 3,500 guest rooms; 350,000 sq ft of meeting and banquet space; a 27,000 sq ft world-class spa; a 220,000 sq ft pool complex with seven unique pool experiences including a 1,800 sq ft infinity pool with spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip; a 100,000 sq ft West Tower LED screen (one of the largest LED building displays in the world), and 19,000 sq ft East Tower LED screen; and an extensive food and beverage portfolio featuring a wide range of cuisine from authentic street food to Michelin star dining, including concepts new to the Las Vegas Strip.

The portal said Resorts World Las Vegas will seamlessly blend the technology and luxury appeal of an urban contemporary resort with the traditions and time-honoured details of the Resorts World brand.

"From a lush outdoor pool oasis with bold accents and rustic textures, to an interior colour palette of warm gold and cream hues, each space will have its own identity and will be equally as inviting and immersive as it is unique," it said.

Resorts World Las Vegas is being developed by Genting, which has been registered as a publicly traded corporation by the Nevada Gaming Commission. Resorts World Las Vegas has affiliated integrated resorts in the Americas, Malaysia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the Bahamas.
