TAKING THE SMOKING and gambling out of Las Vegas is like taking the lobster and leaf-peeping out of Maine. You might think that a non-smoking, non-gambling hotel would be a rather unattractive destination for Vegas visitors, but this new luxury resort hopes to attract a different kind of tourist. Majestic Las Vegas, set to open in 2024, will be located two blocks from the Strip across from the Las Vegas Convention Center, and is designed as a luxurious and wellness-focused destination.
The five-star resort and 720 suites will abound with amenities such as a landscaped pool with 50 cabanas overlooking the Strip; a state-of-the-art fitness center; and a world-class spa that tests the limits of luxury. It will also feature six freestanding restaurants around a European-style piazza where there will be dancing fountains and live entertainment.
The Majestic Las Vegas is moving away from what travelers have learned to associate with Sin City. On its website, it explains, “No casino. No smoke. No noise. No hassle. Only white gloved service & timeless contemporary elegance befitting the discerning traveler who wants and expects the very best.”
Lorenzo Doumani, the hotel’s developer, told Hotel Online, “It is time for Las Vegas to provide a luxury option for those who visit our city who want something that is non-gaming. Whether you want to relax in the lap of luxury, host a meeting or event in your own corporate space, facilitate an executive retreat, or launch a new product, Majestic Las Vegas offers the ideal marriage of sophistication, luxury, and strategic location.”
Construction will begin in the summer of 2021, with a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for July 4.
