Fontainebleau Las Vegas has arrived on the strip
The iconic Fontainebleau brand has arrived on the Las Vegas Strip as Fontainebleau Las Vegas, the luxury resort and casino brought to life by Fontainebleau Development…
Seamlessly connecting the past, present and future, the 67-story Fontainebleau Las Vegas – the tallest occupiable building in Nevada — is the first western expansion for the iconic brand. Reflecting the grandeur of its heritage, the resort’s 3,644 rooms and suites present an aura of timeless elegance, while incorporating a lavish splendor and distinctive amenities unique to Las Vegas.
Designed by Fontainebleau Development’s in-house design team, the rooms and suites feature a colour palette of blue and silver water tones and dashes of coral-pink, accented by mercury-glass mirrors and brass details. Custom brass bowtie shaped drawer-pulls represent both exquisite attention to detail and a nod to Fontainebleau’s history. All luxurious accommodations feature expansive floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views of the Strip.
“For almost 70 years, the Fontainebleau brand has challenged boundaries and expectations,” said Jeffrey Soffer, Fontainebleau Development Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “With Fontainebleau Las Vegas, we have transcended aspiration and set the stage for a new era of luxury hospitality defined by innovation, sophistication and opulence, with an inextricable link to our roots at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. This building represents a remarkable new chapter in our storied legacy and will be a beacon for those seeking to indulge in the unforgettable.”
The property shelters a 14,000-square-foot fitness centre and 55,000-square-foot Lapis Spa designed by Milan-based Lissoni & Partners. Lapis Spa, arriving in Las Vegas from Fontainebleau Miami Beach, will redefine wellness with an approach that emphasises personalisation and community. The spa offers a full spectrum of wellness-enhancing facilities, including 44 treatment rooms; a purifying salt cave; a healing infrared sauna and invigorating event sauna; rejuvenating lounge areas; men’s and women’s hydrotherapy lounges as well as a co-ed sensory room with communal healing waters; and 11 luxurious suites offering exclusive spa experiences.
“We are thrilled to introduce many of the world-class amenities we are recognised for in Miami alongside our new-to-market offerings at Fontainebleau Las Vegas,” added Soffer. “All of these concepts, infused with the dynamic spirit of the Strip, allow us to create a destination that is the best of all worlds and promises an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind experience for every guest.”
Additional resort amenities will include a 96,500-square-foot luxury boutique retail district, located on the first two levels of the resort; a six-acre pool district, 550,000-square-feet of customisable, indoor-outdoor meeting space; 150,000 square-feet of gaming space; and the forthcoming LIV and LIV Beach experiences.
David Collins Studio has designed many of the hotel’s public areas and F&B offers for Fontainebleau Development, including the showstopping Great Dome arrival space. The luxurious interiors pay subtle homage to the original Fontainebleau Miami Beach and the iconic architecture by Morris Lapidus
Fontainebleau Las Vegas resides on nearly 25 acres on the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip. The property, acquired in 2021 by Fontainebleau Development in partnership with Koch Real Estate Investments, will be solely operated by Fontainebleau Development upon its opening.
