When it opened in 2005, The Wynn Las Vegas was the most expensive hotel-casino ever built, at a cost of $2.7 billion to construct. The more than 2,700 suites came at an average cost of $1 million each. At the time, Richard Branson noted, “There is nobody in the world who creates such entertaining and beautiful casinos…I would say every other casino must be nervous. He’s lifted the bar dramatically.”
Although that record was broken in 2010 with the $5.5 billion construction of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, it remains one of the true stars of casino resorts around the world. The Wynn sits across 217 acres with its resort showcasing an 111,000-square-foot casino as well as 19 distinctive dining experiences, nearly 75,000 square feet of retail space, an exclusive onsite 18-hole championship golf course, state-of-the-art recreational facilities and more.
