An Oriental Oasis on the Las Vegas Strip

  • Stephanie Meza

The Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, which opened in CityCenter in December, is a serene sanctuary located in the center of the bustling Las Vegas strip. From the moment you enter the non-gaming hotel’s 23rd-floor lobby with soaring views of the city, it is clear the hotel has a different point of view. It has an expansive two-level, 27,000-square-foot spa that specializes in holistic treatments that combine Eastern tradition and modern techniques, and it is home to the already-famous chef Pierre Gagnaire’s three-Michelin-star restaurant, Twist.

Interior designer Adam D. Tihany and architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates are responsible for the elegant design. The hotel has earned a LEED Gold certification because of its energy-efficient features—including heat-deflecting, light-colored rooftops, which substantially reduce the amount of artificial lighting by providing an abundance of natural light. Each room comes equipped with an automated control panel that allows guests to personalize their environment by adjusting room temperature, lighting, and entertainment systems with one central control.  The 47-story, 392-room hotel has suites ranging in price from $575 to $15,000.
