Resorts World Las Vegas will officially open to the public on June 24, 2021. The specific date has been teased since Resorts World said it would open this summer. Resorts World also announced a slew of resident artists who will appear at the integrated casino resort in the future.
Resorts World dropped the “Stay Fabulous,” promo video featuring Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, Tiësto, and Zedd. The mainstream artists will perform in Resorts World theater while the DJs drop beats at Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub.
“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.”
Resorts World has been dripping out information about the property seemingly every few weeks. Individually, the parts sound cool. When you put everything together you realize that Resorts World will be a massive integrated resort casino when it opens.
Even though the project is on a large 88-acre plot of land, this is bigger than you may have thought. In the case of Resorts World, the sum of the property is greater than its parts.
The Integrated Resorts World
Resorts World is an integrated resort similar to huge Las Vegas properties like The Venetian. The property has many (many) individual parts in addition to a casino. In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun last year, Sibella said he expects 75% of revenue at the property to be from non-gaming areas. That makes sense when you look at what the property will offer.
Guests will be able to choose from over 40 food and beverage options at Resorts World. The eateries range from fine-dining and quick-service venues to original and exclusive concepts. There will be eight different bars at Resorts World.
Resorts World will have 3,500 hotel rooms. There will be different levels of Hilton brands:
- Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World will be the entry-level rooms. The 1,774 full-service guest rooms and suites range in size from 400 to 3,300 square feet.
- Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World is the mid-tier rooms. These 1,496 contemporary guest rooms and suites range in size from 550 to 2,800 square feet
- Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts are very limited luxury options. There will be an intimate collection of 236 ultra-luxury guest rooms and suites ranging from 550 to 7,000 square feet.
The 5,000-capacity concert and entertainment venue will be outfitted to host a variety of events ranging from concerts to conventions, corporate and sporting events. This is likely where Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan will perform.
The 5.5-acre pool complex is no joke. It will be the largest rooftop pool deck in Las Vegas. There will be seven unique pool experiences including the only infinity-edge pool on the Strip. The 27,000-square-foot, world-class spa experience is also located at the pool deck.
Resorts World Casino
Oh yeah, Resorts World will have a casino. The next-generation casino floor at Resorts World will feature 117,000 square feet of gaming. For comparison, this is larger than nearby Sahara and Treasure Island casinos combined. However, it’s smaller than the casino floor at Wynn.

Resorts World will feature high-limit gaming areas and a different take on its sportsbook. The sportsbook will be a bar and restaurant concept from Nashville, TN. Dawg House Saloon and Sportsbook will offer a sports bar and restaurant with the ability to wager on games. It will also feature non-sports entertainment.
In addition to slot machines, table games, and a sports bar and book, Resorts World will feature a dedicated poker room.
