Las Vegas has gained a reputation for extremes over the years. The famed Strip alone is a global destination. The brand-new Circa Resort and Casino is the highlight of the revitalized downtown area. The surrounding area offers a different Las Vegas experience as well.
Resorts World Las Vegas is one of the current casino projects being built on the Strip. It will stand 57 stories high to come in second place among the tallest structures in this gambling town. There is a 100,000 square-foot façade on the West Tower that is lit up with LED lights as a focal point.
The overall goal of this new property is creating the ultimate “wow” factor for visitors. In a town full of extremes, this one should raise the bar even higher than it already is. The overall entertainment complex is expansive in its own right. At a price tag of $4.3 billion, this is to be expected.
Of the four, Zouk is being touted as “the most technologically advanced night club in Las Vegas. The AYU Dayclub creates an outdoor oasis with a Southeast Asian theme. RedTail offers a new twist as a social gaming sports bar. Activities include beer pong, darts, and billiards. FUHU is an experimental dining experience. It will take a few unexpected twists with its contemporary Asian cuisine.
Overall, there is 100,000 square feet of designated space in this immersive entertainment presentation. The resort will be divided into four distinct sections that create their own special environment.
Based in Malaysia, Genting Berhad is the property developer. The company has formed individual partnerships with outside groups to enhance the overall experience. For example, Zouk Nightclub is a partnership with a Singapore nightclub operator of the same name.
The timeline for Resorts World grand opening remains the summer of 2021. There will be a total of 3,500 guestrooms as part of the hotel accommodations. Three separate Hilton brands will be represented, including LRX and Conrad.
