Dazzling images of Resorts World Las Vegas – the first new hotel on the Strip in over a decade

Travel writer Jo Kessel filmed dazzling footage of her stay at Resorts World Las Vegas — the first new hotel to open on the Strip in more than a decade. The last new opening was The Cosmopolitan in 2010. The images show just how ‘mega’ the resort is, from the oversized rooms to the world’s largest LED globe to the 5,000-seat theater, the largest in the city. Plus, it has the inside scoop on where to eat and drink, including Alle Lounge at 66, the hotel’s top-floor rooftop bar with a view of the Strip like no other.

Everything on the Las Vegas strip is decadent, hi-tech, and bigger than life, meaning the first new hotel to open here in over a decade is a perfect fit.

The statistics of this behemoth are mind boggling. It has 3,500 rooms, 40 restaurants, seven swimming pools and a casino the size of two football fields.

My mission was to experience everything the hotel has to offer during my short stay, quite a task given its massiveness – but I think it worked.

Resorts World is centrally located, in the middle of the north end of the strip.

The video begins by showing how the hotel’s flashy red exterior — featuring one of the largest LED displays for buildings in the world — stands out on the Las Vegas skyline.

The resort is three hotels in one, with 3,500 rooms spread over (in ascending order) the Conrad, Hilton and Crockfords.

The hotel has showstoppers around every corner (seen in the film) such as Liberace’s piano, the world’s largest LED globe and the largest theater Sin City has to offer.

Katy Perry and Michael Buble will both headline here in 2022 and, unbelievably, I got to hit the stage as their warm-up artist.

The decor is modern and stylish, with floor-to-ceiling wall windows and a larger floor space than the average home.

Jo describes her room as follows: ‘The decor is modern and stylish, with floor-to-ceiling windows from wall to ceiling and a larger floor space than the average house’

Jo waves the rubber duck that comes with her suite. ‘The red duck will come and play outside during my stay,’ she remarks

The dressing room cum walk-in wardrobe leads to a lounge, bedroom and a generous sized bathroom complete with rubber duck toy. And yes, the red duck comes out to play during my stay.

The hotel’s motto is ‘Stay Fabulous’ (lit on the duck wrapper) and Resorts World is designed to help.

If chilling out by one of the seven pools isn’t enough, a visit to the hotel’s spa and series of plunge pools – the ‘Fountain of Youth’ – will certainly do the trick.

The pools vary in temperature, from lukewarm to hot to freezing cold, according to Jo

Repeated circuits not only help you feel like a million bucks, but if you’re lucky, you’ll look ten years younger. I’ll take a chance. Beats Cosmetic Surgery!

The movie still glows from the fountain and then sees me trying my luck at the casino. Fifty cents goes into a slot machine. What is happening? Watch to find out.
