What comes to your mind when you think of Las Vegas? A good bet is that it would be gambling. The city is known for gambling and partying. But this resort might just add something new to the mix.
The Majestic Las Vegas will be a non-gambling, non-smoking resort, and it is set to open in 2024. The $850-million project will be located just two blocks off the Strip and across Las Vegas Convention Center.
So why no gambling? The resort is looking to give its guest a different experience. In fact, a recent survey found out that only 7% of Las Vegas visitors are there to gamble.
So, what should we expect to see there?
- A five-star hotel with 720 suites
- Six freestanding restaurants in a European-style piazza
- Outdoor pool overlooking the Strip, with 50 cabanas and Turkish coffee available
- 70,000 sq.ft. wellness spa, stretching over four floors
- 270,000 sq. ft. of corporate Sky Suites, located on the top floors
The Spa will include only the best options regarding health, fitness, and nutrition. There will be executive physicals, personal nutrition planning, fitness regimens, yoga, spa treatments, spinning classes, and much more.
There will be 35 Sky Suites with 16-feet ceilings on floors 51–60. Each unit will be from 4700 to 25,000 sq. ft. (from ¼ to the entire floor.) Owners will have their own concierge and access to “Owner’s Club.” Finally, you can purchase suites this year with prices starting at $10 million.
While the casino industry’s revenue reached $227 billion in 2020, Majestic Las Vegas wants no part of it. The resort aims to attract corporate professionals and guests wishing to relax and enjoy Sin City without any gaming involved. And this resort is not the only one, as there are more non-gambling options set to open.
Is it a gamble to open a non-gambling resort in Vegas? We shall see.
