esorts World Las Vegas, the first ground-up resort development on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a decade, will officially open its doors on June 24, 2021.
Built on the 88-acre site of the old Stardust, built on the foundation, literally, of a resort scuttled by the great recession, Resort World broke ground in 2015. Owner Genting Group was cautious, delaying opening, which turned out to be a stroke of great luck. Resorts World will now arrive as Covid-19 begins to fade.
Through a historic partnership with Hilton, Resorts World Las Vegas will offer 3,500 luxury guest rooms and suites from three premium Hilton brands – the largest multi-brand deal in Hilton's history – including the largest Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in the world, one of the first LXR Hotels & Resorts locations in the U.S., and a marquee Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel.
"After years of planning and constructing this monumental property with some of the most innovative partners in the industry, Resorts World Las Vegas will redefine the hospitality standard in Las Vegas with unmatched dining and entertainment, more variety of hotel accommodations than anywhere else on the Strip, and the city's most progressive technology," said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas. "We are filled with gratitude and excitement as we approach our opening this June and hope to play a role in Las Vegas's rebound after what has been an incredibly challenging year for the destination and greater hospitality industry."
Casino and entertainment
The next-generation casino floor at Resorts World Las Vegas will feature 117,000 square feet of gaming complete with slots, table games, a dedicated poker room, high-limit areas and a sportsbook. Guests will be able to earn points towards curated benefits when they dine, shop and play with Genting Rewards, the resort's loyalty program.
The property will also include a 5,000-seat entertainment venue, which is a joint development between Resorts World and AEG Presents. It also has 117,000 square feet of gaming, 250,000 square feet of meeting space — with a tunnel connecting to the Las Vegas Convention Center — and the Zouk Nightclub and AYU Dayclub.
