While the pandemic has made it a difficult time for many non-essential businesses including the gaming sector to thrive in the past months, global casino giant Genting Group has decided on making 2021 definitely a year to remember. The Malaysian group has finally announced the grand opening of its $4.3 billion integrated resort in the Las Vegas Strip this coming June 24. With over 50 years of experience in the casino industry, its latest project will signify the first ground-up casino built on the destination in over a decade.
Major newcomer on The Strip
A sight to behold, Resorts World Las Vegas is geared on opening its doors to the public in two months time. The major casino complex is down to its final minor adjustments and finishing touches in preparation for the anticipated welcome after more than five years of construction when it broke ground in May 2015.
“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”, Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas said in a statement.
“We are filled with gratitude and excitement as we approach our opening… and hope to play a role in Las Vegas’ rebound after what has been an incredibly challenging year,” he added.

The 88-acre property boasts of 3,500 rooms across three Hilton-branded hotels namely Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World, Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World and Crockfords Las Vegas which have already begun taking reservations as early as now. Aside from this, the complex is also home to a 117,000 square-foot casino, 40 food and beverage outlets, an extensive line-up of retail stores spread out over 70,000 square-foot of space, a 5.5 acre pool and spa complex and a 5,000 capacity concert and entertainment theater. A modern and ultra-luxurious project, Resorts World Las Vegas will ultimately change the standard in the area while welcoming fresh clientele in addition to its Asian following.
With the state of Nevada eyeing a return to 100% capacity by June 1st, the grand opening will be a great sign of positive recovery in the coming months. Understandably, Asian business or other international markets may not be around for a while given travel restrictions in place but with things continuing on the uptrend, the Entertainment Capital’s outlook remains hopeful to be stronger than ever in no time.
