Las Vegas is buzzing with boutique hotel openings this year, and one of the most eagerly anticipated is the new Delano Las Vegas will open at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino later this year and is now accepting room reservations for stays beginning Sept. 1.
“Delano guests will be wowed by the introduction of this very special destination,” said Matthew Chilton, general manager of Delano Las Vegas.
What can you expect? Exactly what the modern luxury traveler craves, we’d say: a non-smoking, all-suite boutique experience and 1,100 rooms to choose from.
Here are a few more sneak peek details: The wood slatted entrance will feature a massive divided boulder from the Nevada desert, a striking walkway featuring colors and textures inspired by the layered landscape of the Mojave Desert, and an inviting pathway of stone surrounded by towering columns enveloped in Delano’s iconic white sheers and statement mirrors. At the end of the corridor, a stunning piece of artwork comprised of small rocks suspended from the ceiling will be the focal point of the reception area.
The guestrooms will offer a clean white and neutral palate and a “South Beach meets Las Vegas” vibe, as well as a standard size of 725 square feet, one of the largest in the city. Each of the suites will offer a spa-style bathroom, oversized flat-screen TV, wet bar, desk, and living area and its own powder room.
Food & Beverage
The hotel will offer five distinct dining and drinking concepts. Situated just off the main lobby, 3940 Coffee + Tea will serve gourmet coffee and tea, fresh juices and breakfast pastries (including cronuts!) each morning. Each afternoon, a tea cart will offer the finest selection of loose-leaf tea served alongside traditional accompaniments like petite pastries and finger sandwiches, as well as small plates, cocktails, wine and beer in the evening. Located just steps from the Delano lobby, a to-be-named restaurant will offer a “historic farmhouse meets urban kitchen,” vibe for breakfast and lunch daily. An eclectic lounge with a sophisticated vibe, Franklin will feature nightly entertainment including special live performances and sounds from up-and-coming DJs as well as craft cocktails. Situated on the 64th floor of Delano Las Vegas and boasting extraordinary views of the Las Vegas Strip, Rivea (taking over what is now MIX) will serve French and Italian cuisine from internationally celebrated chef Alain Ducasse. An adjacent lounge will also feature an expansive outdoor patio.
Pool and Spa
Delano Las Vegas will feature its own private pool just steps from the sand and surf of Mandalay Bay Beach and wave pool, scheduled to open in 2015. And of course, what great luxe hotel is complete without a spa?
BATHHOUSE Spa will introduce several signature services including the Double the Pleasure Massage, performed in synchronicity by two massage therapists, as well as treatments reflecting traditional rituals from regions around the world including India, Asia, Europe and a “Taste From the Islands.” We can’t wait to check it out.
