    Fontainebleau Las Vegas Set to Illuminate the Strip in December

    The highly anticipated Fontainebleau Las Vegas is nearing completion and is set to open its doors in December, illuminating the famous Las Vegas Strip. The project, which has been in development for 16 years and cost $3.7 billion according to Bloomberg, is a tribute to the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach, while also introducing a fresh take on modern luxury.

    Located adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center, the 67-story resort will feature an impressive 36 restaurants and bars, offering a range of culinary experiences for guests. The creation of this stunning resort has been a collaborative effort, with renowned interior designers, architects, and landscape architects working alongside Fontainebleau Development’s own design team.

    London-based David Collins Studio was enlisted by Fontainebleau Development founder Jeffrey Soffer to establish the overall design concept and create tailored designs for various spaces within the property, including the lobby and lobby bar, VIP check-in, steakhouse, bar, lounge, and suites. The goal was to seamlessly integrate the history and authentic personality of Fontainebleau Miami Beach while infusing modern touches and elegant details for the discerning global travelers of Fontainebleau Las Vegas.

    Carlos Zapata Studio, based in New York, is responsible for the hotel’s exterior architecture, while the internationally recognized Rockwell Group designed four food and beverage concepts for Groot Hospitality, including the Southeast Asian restaurant Komodo and the renowned nightclub LIV. Groot Hospitality also oversaw the creation of an aspirational gaming area and fitness center. The design of the 3,644 guestrooms and suites was led by Fontainebleau’s own executive vice president of design, John Rawlins, who incorporated a soothing palette of blue and silver tones with accents of coral.

    Other notable contributions to the project include the 55,000 square foot spa designed by the New York office of Lissoni & Partners and the outdoor pool areas and extensive meeting and convention space crafted by Jeffrey Beers International.

    With its monumental spaces, sophisticated design, and a nod to the history of Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Fontainebleau Las Vegas is poised to be a premier destination for luxury travelers seeking an extraordinary experience on the Las Vegas Strip.
