The iconic Fontainebleau brand arrives on the Las Vegas Strip as the Fontainebleau Las Vegas, the luxury resort and casino brought to life by Fontainebleau Development. The resort will debut December 13, 2023, pending regulatory approvals. The fulfillment of a long-held vision of Fontainebleau Development Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Soffer is in the final stages of construction.

“For almost 70 years, the Fontainebleau brand has challenged boundaries and expectations,” says Soffer in a prepared statement. “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 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 color 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 accommodations feature expansive floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views of the Strip.

The resort’s website offers an inside look at the 36 first-to-market restaurant concepts from around the globe opening this December and throughout 2024. The collection features ten of the Top 100 grossing restaurants in the U.S. and concepts from award-winning chefs and restaurateurs, including Chef Gabriela Cámara, Michelin-starred Chefs Masa Ito and Kevin Kim, Alan Yau, Evan Funke, David Grutman, and more.

As they plan their visits, guests can also get a glimpse at Fontainebleau Las Vegas’ 14,000-square-foot fitness center 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 emphasizes personalization 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 coed 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 recognized for in Miami alongside our new-to-market offerings at Fontainebleau Las Vegas,” says 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 6-acre pool district; 550,000 square feet of customizable, indoor-outdoor meeting space; 150,000 square-feet of gaming space; and the forthcoming LIV and LIV Beach experiences.

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.
