LAS VEGAS HOTELS: Resorts World review

Resorts World is the most recently-built of all the Las Vegas hotels, with it finally opening its doors in the summer of 2021.

That was after a lengthy construction period that included a scaling down from the initial plans, although the results have still been absolutely spectacular.

It has added another high-end property to the Strip and with its unique red stylings and enormous south-facing video wall that scales several stories, it’s a very striking one too. Resorts World is also the most expensive hotel resort to ever be built in Las Vegas.

Resorts world stands on what many consider to be sacred ground in Las Vegas – the site of the old Stardust hotel. Stardust and its sign was a Las Vegas icon until its demolition in 2007.

Resorts World is on the north of the Las Vegas Strip between Circus Circus and Treasure Island, with Wynn and Encore roughly opposite.

It is one of those properties that, due to it’s presence, a relative lack of properties around it, and the curvature of the Las Vegas Boulevard, it can often look a lot closer than it actually is when you are at the centre-Strip area.

Getting around

The location can make it a bit of a challenge to get to and from Resorts World. That part of the Strip is the least developed at the time of writing, so even the neighbouring properties can be a little walk away.

Wynn, Encore and Circus Circus are all easily reached, though. Treasure Island, Venetian and Mirage are within walking distance too, although it will take a little longer. For reference, the Bellagio is 1.6 miles away, so it is certainly possible to get there on foot. However, once you factor in the heat at certain times of the year and the general battering Las Vegas can give your feet, it is perhaps not advisable.

Fortunately, the trusty Deuce Bus has a stop outside Resorts World, so you can ride that to wherever you want to go, including Downtown.

Resorts World Rooms and Amenities

The rooms at Resorts World are separated into three different levels essentially: Hilton, Conrad, and Crockfords.

The Hilton are the most basic, but we use that term in the loosest possible sense. Even these are extremely comfortable and, as you would expect for such a new property, in superb condition. Hilton rooms at Resorts World are 400 sq. ft.

Conrad Las Vegas is the mid-tier, and they are larger at 550 sq. ft. They also have a different décor and finish, plus a few more in-room amenities.

Crockfords, meanwhile, are also 550 sq. ft, but are more exclusive with a private entrance, valet service and a 24-hour luxury Ambassador service thrown in too, among other added luxuries.

All three levels have suites available too for those who like an upgrade.

Hotel amenities are not lacking either, with the standard pool, spa, salon and fitness centre available to guests.

The gaming floor, meanwhile, is large, well-lit, and very nicely designed.

Food and Drink

Resorts World really shines when it comes to dining options, which is a huge tick for the property given its relative isolation on the Strip.

There are no fewer than ten fine dining options. Resorts World was originally meant to be Asian themed. They have toned that styling down significantly from the initial plans, but you can still see it represented in the food options.

Fuhu (Asian fusion), Genting Palace (Chinese) and Kusa Nori (Japanese) make for a strong line up, and the food court backs this up with a huge choice of cheaper oriental options too.

Viva provides Latin cooking from chef Ray Garcia, while Bar Zazu serves Tapas. There is an Italian too (Breeza) and Crossroads – the Strip’s first fully plant-based fine dining restaurant.

The most high-end of the lot, though, is Caviar Bar Las Vegas, which provides Black Pearl Caviar from Michelin-starred chef Shaun Hergatt. Obviously, there is a Steakhouse (Carversteak) too.

There are plenty of casual dining options too, with a special nod to Dawg House, which is a sports bar. Be sure to check out the extensive food court too.

You won’t be short of nightlife options either, with several bars and cocktail lounges scattered around the property.

Shows and Attractions

The Resorts World Theatre is a jewel in the crown of the property, and it has allowed it to become one of the premier venues for headline acts among all the Las Vegas Hotels.

It is a 5,000-seater theatre with state-of-the-art technology and it us used by several big-name artists. At the time of writing, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry have regular shows. Expect Celine Dion to start her residency in Resorts World soon too.

Other attractions are light, but the giant digital orb is definitely worth a look. The artwork that pays homage to the Stardust sign is a really nice touch as well.

Resorts World Pool

There are four pools at Resorts World, including a family pool. Beside that there is the main pool, the Binimi pool and Cabana pool, so you won’t be short on options.

Cabanas and daybeds are available for hire and it’s very easy to get poolside drinks and snacks.


Resorts World is the newest of the Las Vegas hotels, and that can bring with it a lot of expectations.

They have built something that adds something to the fabric of Las Vegas, though. You get the feeling there is still a lot more to come from them, too.

Pros: Brand new, great casino, high-end rooms.

Cons: The location is not the best, and it is still searching for its soul a little – although that can happen with new properties so I wouldn’t expect it to remain the case for long.

Considerations: Right now it is hard to know where Resorts World will settle in terms of price point. Many will understandably decide to wait a little while to see if the cost comes down.
