Regular readers of LLM – Luxury Lifestyle Magazine know that we get a little excited at the prospect of a new casino resort opening in one of the world’s biggest gaming destinations, so when we heard of a new offering that is readying itself to open later this year, we couldn’t resist delving deeper and taking a sneak peak of what is to come.
Blending a heavy dose of retro charm with modern day luxuries, Las Vegas’ lavish new resort, Circa Resort and Casino promises the biggest sportsbook in the city’s history alongside an array of bars and restaurants, upmarket rooms and suites, stadium swim and much more.
Opening in December 2020, Circa is looking to bridge the gap between the city of yesteryear and the Las Vegas of tomorrow and, where other resorts have a focus on the big scale entertainment offerings or other draws, here visitors can expect a top-notch casino experience – something many will desire after a long time away from the tables and slots.
Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, casinos, hotels and other entertainment destinations were forced to close across the world and this saw many betting enthusiasts turning to online versions to place their bets instead. If you go to MrBet and the like, you will see what speculators were met with on an online format. Video slots, table games and live casinos are just some of the games that aim to please the casino enthusiast who can’t make it to the land-based versions and have the chance to enjoy the action, albeit from the comfort of their homes.
With establishments slowly returning to normality and opening up their doors, even if a little different than before, and even brand-new resorts opening up for the first time with restrictions in place – not something they had planned on we assume – it will be an interesting time for the industry. Some people will surely be wanting to head out and return to travel and gambling as soon as possible, while others may seem perfectly satisfied with placing their bets online, or complementing their hobby with both.
So, back to this new Vegas offering and its big promises – what can we expect from Circa Resort and Casino when it opens its doors? Looks wise – vintage glamour, whether within the five refined restaurants or casual eateries and five bars, and certainly throughout the decor in the rooms and suites. Speaking of which, suites such as the Circa End Suite boast a wet bar in the living room along with a dining table and convertible sofa with a king size mattress, the bedroom boasts a Serta Chateau mattress to recline on, the marble look bathroom holds a walk in shower and double vanity unit, while a clothes steamer is at hand to keep garments looking fresh and a handy in-room tablet will surely be of use throughout a stay here.
There’s a definite retro aesthetic with deep blues and golds and geometric shapes within the décor as well as cool lighting and curved seating around each suite. Guests won’t miss any of the action on the large TVs and for those looking for an entirely upmarket experience, the Founders Suite has to be the choice for a luxury stay. From $2,999 a night, guests can expect views of the strip in this 1,930sqft, two-bedroom suite as well as a full-size fridge, an additional powder room, additional seating and more space to enjoy the amenities.
Casino-goers can choose from 55 table games and 1,350 slot machines within a lively atmosphere where the music is turned up and the cocktails flow. Fun certainly seems to be the order of the day with an additional 55 high limit slots and 138 bar top games alongside classic table games including blackjack, roulette, 3-card poker and craps.
What has certainly caught our eye is the stadium swim option at the hotel, the biggest outdoor pool amphitheatre in America. Head to a cabana by the pool and soak up some of the action from the big names in sport at a football viewing party and then have a dip at half time, it sounds like fun to us! And we mentioned that the resort offers the biggest sportsbook in Las Vegas history, but how about the largest sports betting experience in the world too? With a three-storey sportsbook, 78m pixel screen thrown in with the well-known Vegas hospitality available, visitors will certainly be wowed. There is a seating capacity for 1,000 people as well as private boxes to book and enjoy the action from, we are sure many people who go will find it hard to leave not just this action-packed room but the resort as a whole.
