We have to hand it to Las Vegas — when they do something, they do it big and in style.
The opening of the multi-billion-dollar Resorts World Las Vegas will be delayed until Summer 2021 instead of the end of 2020 as planned.
Crowned the most expensive resort property ever developed in Las Vegas, costing a whopping $4.3 billion USD ($5.7 billion CDN), the ultra resort has surpassed The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas — $4.18 billion USD ($5.55 billion CDN) — as well as the Wynn Las Vegas — $3.26 billion USD ($4.3 billion CDN).

“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 Las Vegas in a statement. “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.”
The resort will feature a 110,000 sq. ft. casino floor, 3,500 guest rooms and luxury suites, and a 5,000-capacity theatre.
The casino floor will have table games, slots, private gaming salons, high-limit gaming areas, and a room entirely dedicated to poker.
Additionally, there will be a 14,000-sq-ft Entertainment Zone, which will feature live entertainment.
New additions will include a 50-foot diameter video globe that will display over 6,000 square feet of enchanting LED content, as well as additional luxury suites, penthouses, and villas with “individual lobby experiences, open balconies, and a sky casino.”
There will also be a 27,000 sq. ft. “world-class” spa as well as a 220,000 sq. ft. pool complex with seven individual pool experiences, including an infinity pool that is 1,800 sq. ft. and provides awe-inspiring views of the Las Vegas strip.
The property is being developed by Genting Berhap, a holding company within the Genting Group based out of Malaysia.
According to the resort’s website, the site is one of the largest hotel construction zones currently in the United States, with 1,500 workers on-site each day at the 88-acre plot of land.
“The property will be a tech-forward, innovative, and inclusive resort which will stand on the pillars of elevated service, harmony, loyalty, and luxury,” according to the resort. “Weaving traditions of Resorts World into the fabric of Las Vegas, the 3,500-room casino-resort will introduce a bold, fresh take on hospitality to the Las Vegas market with exciting new experiences, one-of-a-kind culture and seamless guest service.”
Resorts World Las Vegas has affiliated integrated resorts in Singapore, Malaysia, the Americas, the Bahamas, and the United Kingdom.
