I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Bellagio, the newest
and most spectacular of the Wynn resorts. That it is the most expensive
resort ever built at $1.8 billion, is evident everywhere. The Mediterranean
style architecture, coloring and art have been meticulously intertwined
to produce a visual masterpiece. The casino area lighting and design
are a pleasant departure from the darker maze-like layouts of other
popular Vegas casinos.
commonly found in all of the large Wynn properties, such as the
Mirage and Treasure Island, I was thrilled with the high level of
service offered throughout the resort. Wynn believes in treating
his staff better than most and this promotes excellent service and
respect from his employees, which only serves to benefit his guests.
Having started out in the business as a Blackjack dealer has given
Steve Wynn a strong handle on the needs of his guests, as well as
Bellagio's new Cirque du Soleil show,"O", is simply amazing
and should not to be missed by anyone. I can certainly say that
I have never seen anything like this anywhere else in the world.
The set is made up primary of a gigantic 25-foot deep pool, which
holds over 1.5 million gallons of water and most of the 74 performers
at one time or another. Even at $100 per person, I dare anyone to
leave saying they were short-changed.
that is just a little rich for your taste then you can still enjoy
the free entertainment in the form of the hourly water show at the
Bellagio entrance. This awe-inspiring wonder is best described as
a water based fireworks-like display choreographed to music.

or the incredible places to dine. I don't want to give away all
the phenomenal attractions, which await anyone fortunate enough
to have booked a room in the near future. I will simply state that

asked those of you who've had a chance to visit the Bellagio to
give us you feedback. Here's what a few had to say...
At the beginning of November 1998, I had the chance to visit the
brand new jewel in Las Vegas: the Bellagio Hotel. Being that this
was my first trip to the City of Lights, I didn't know what I could
really expect... It was 5:00 in the morning and I was tired from
my flight when we arrived at the hotel. But the moment I stepped
through the Bellagio doors, I could not help but be enchanted by
the magnificent lobby, rich with intricate mosaic floors and fabulous
the rest of my 4-day stay, I visited most of the hotel: the back
garden, filled with large trees and warm pools; the various restaurants,
Mediterranean and Chinese; and of course, the casino. I was also
lucky enough to attend the in-house performance of Le Cirque du
Soleil called "O", presented on a stage made out of water.
Bellagio is a place of pleasure and is definitely worth visiting!

"It is amazing to stay in such a luxurious hotel at such an
unbelievably good price! The entire hotel/casino is a work of art
and I most appreciated the beautiful, relaxed atmosphere in the
The new Bellagio resort – it’s simply beautiful. It’s
refreshingly bright and cheery inside with colorful flowers everywhere,
magnificent mosaics across the floors and the friendliest staff
you’ll meet. Should you dine at the Jasmine, be sure to get
a seat near the windows where you have a front-row seat to the breathtaking
water-fountain show that appears in front of the building. It’s
a must-see display. The next time I’m in Vegas, my first stop
will be the Bellagio – see you there!
would love to hear
from you if you have something to add about the Bellagio.
