LAS VEGAS — The opening of the multi-billion-dollar Resorts World Las Vegas will be slightly delayed until summer 2021, not at the end of 2020 as originally planned.
Dubbed the most expensive resort property ever developed in Las Vegas, at a cost of US$4.3 billion, the megaresort has surpassed the $4.18 billion spent on The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and the $3.26 billion spent on Wynn Las Vegas.
“Our team has been working diligently to perfect the vision for Resorts World Las Vegas and we are excited to begin sharing that concept with Las Vegas and the greater hospitality communities,” said Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World.
Upon completion the luxury resort-casino will include two towers with a 5,000-seat theatre, a 75,000 square-foot nightclub and dayclub concept, additional luxury suites, villas and penthouses with individual lobby experiences, a video globe, open balconies, a sky casino and seven different pool experiences.
There’ll also be an 110,000 square-foot casino featuring a 140,000 square-foot Entertainment Zone, 350,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space, a 27,000 square-foot spa as well as Michelin-star dining.
Added Sibella: “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.”
