Resorts World Las Vegas is a new hotel construction slated to have an opening date of sometime between 2019 in Las Vegas. The hotel, owned by the Genting Group is positioned adjacent to both the Wynn and Encore and is expected to compete in the high end market targeting mostly Asian visitors looking for an authentic and luxury experience. Originally slated for an early 2018 open, construction logistics and a falling Malaysian dollar have seen the project pushed back to a mid 2019 opening.
The much anticipated hotel will definitely bring some new competition to the high roller market, which traditionally has been tightly controlled by The Wynn/Encore, Palazzo/Venetian, Bellagio and Caesars. It’s expected that the opening of RW Las Vegas will definitely have an impact on these properties since it’s the first in a long time of this scale and product offering.
As we reported earlier in 2015, the project will include a total of 6,500 rooms based on the design of a Chinese Village, with an indoor water park, 175K sq. ft. casino an tons of other amenities to impress the discerning clientele. To date, there have been no announcement on room types, restaurants and shows to be included in the resort but this page will continuously be updated with breaking information on the project as it is announced through the company.
Earlier this year, there was some speculation on what was actually going on with the project, as we covered in our update on the project back in March. It seems now that while the company has not been very responsive to press, construction will begin ramping up towards the end of 2016 with an opening most likely for late 2018 or early 2019.
