Resorts World is fast becoming a household name with casinos, cruises, and resorts around the world, including: New York, Manila, and the Bahamas. Now, we can add Las Vegas to the list. Resorts World is currently working on construction for an 87-acre mega-resort in Sin City, which is anticipated to open in 2020.
Resorts World Las Vegas is owned by Genting Group, a Malaysian leisure and gaming company valued at $7.2 billion. They will start with a 175,000-square-foot casino space in the resort. Expect top-of-the-line games, new features, and a casino experience to keep you entertained around the clock. The company is preparing to put in over 3,500 slot machines and gaming tables.
The groundbreaking on the site of the former Stardust Casino began on May 5, 2015. The total property has 21,847,314 square feet. The hotel, itself, will have four towers, for a total of 6,583 rooms. Hotel rooms and a casino are just the beginning of what promises to be a resort like no other. There are going to be amenities for everyone. Bring your kids to the aquarium, have an ice skating date with your love, or make a splash in the waterpark. Still looking for more activities? Try exploring the panda exhibit! Yes, you heard that right. Genting Group is bringing a full panda exhibit to Las Vegas. Naturally, the company is working to keep to its roots. Expect the gardens to have Asian details, like Koi ponds, bamboo, and cherry blossom trees.
Las Vegas is not only known for world-class gambling, but also world-class dining and shopping. Resorts World Las Vegas will feature an array of fine Asian cuisine and retail space. In keeping with the Asian theme, the resort will have a ‘modern Asian’ design—think the big buildings of Singapore and China. Originally, the plans were to represent old China with design reminiscent of The Great Wall, but that was abandoned to keep up with the modern approach happening in that area of Las Vegas.
The northern end of the Strip is undergoing a huge makeover. Aside from Genting’s mega-resort, the Wynn, which is next door, is also modernizing itself with Paradise Park, a Carnivale-themed series of attractions and interactive experiences that will include a carousel and bumper cars. The Drew, formerly known as the Fontainebleau Las Vegas, which is the tallest building in Las Vegas, is under renovations, as is the Stratosphere and SLS Hotel & Casino.
While 2020 seems far off, the wait is going to be well worth it for Resorts World Las Vegas. Get your bags ready! Pandas, dining, and a waterpark await!
