Bellagio begins US$110 million Spa Tower transformation

The AAA Five Diamond Las Vegas resort, Bellagio, has embarked on the transformation of the rooms and suites within its luxurious Spa Tower.

Promising to elevate the level of luxury it offers through the design, this newly transformed accommodation will draw inspiration from the timeless beauty of northern Italy.

A new transformation project

As work begins on the transformation of the rooms and suites within Bellagio’s Spa Tower, the resort has revealed details of what we can expect from this design project, which follows on from the remodel of the 2,500 guestrooms in its main tower.

The 818 guestrooms and 104 suites of the Spa Tower will be inspired in their design by the beauty and tranquillity of Lake Como. This project is expected to reach completion in October, with some rooms available for guests to stay in from July.

Commenting on the news, Ann Hoff, president and COO of Bellagio, said: “Bellagio’s commitment to delivering unparalleled accommodations, experiences and guest service for our discerning guests from around the world is the hallmark of our brand promise.”

“The Spa Tower’s beautiful and luxurious new suites and guest rooms will reinforce our position as one of the hospitality industry’s premier destinations.”

The resort-wide guestroom enhancements will culminate with the redesign of the Bellagio Tower’s suites by Champalimaud Design in 2024.

Northern Italian inspired suites

The New York based Champalimaud Design atelier has designed the Spa Tower suites in partnership with MGM Resorts International Design Group. This newly designed accommodation will combine a colour palette drawing inspiration from Lake Como and the Alps with custom furnishings and art that’s influenced by high Italian style.

Suite corridors with Italian light fixtures and midnight blue doors will lead to plush suites featuring neutral-coloured wall coverings and accent pieces in colours ranging from the azure and indigo hues of the sky, mountains and lake in this part of northern Italy to the pale rose beige of the lake region’s buildings.

Design details within the well-appointed bedrooms will include tufted cream-coloured curved headboards, custom TV armoires in sycamore wood grain and floral touches paying homage to Italian fashion. Living areas will feature curvilinear furnishings and bathrooms will have custom vanities.

Winston Kong, partner at Champalimaud Design, commented: “We wanted to create a residential aesthetic with the timeless sense of luxury that is uniquely Bellagio. We found inspiration in the colours of Lake Como’s surrounding flora and the classical style of the building’s architecture.”

Suites in the Spa Tower range from 850-sq-ft Salon Suites and 1,000-sq-ft Bellagio Suites to the 1,500-sq-ft Penthouses, 1,500-sq-ft two-bedroom Bellagio Suites and 2,500-sq-ft Executive Hospitality Suites.

Newly designed guestrooms

The guestrooms within the Spa Tower are then being designed by Chicago-based award-winning interior design firm, The Gettys Group, in collaboration with MGM Resorts International Design Group. 

Mirroring the Bellagio Tower’s recently redesigned rooms, the Spa Tower’s rooms will also feature design elements inspired by Lake Como as well as the Bellagio Fountains. Guests can expect carpets emulating the water’s calm motion and headboards evoking the morning light rising over a lake.

Of this accommodation, the King Room will feature a colour palette emulating the sunrise reflecting on the water, while Spa Tower’s Two Queen Room is designed around a lake sunset. 

Design features in these rooms will include luxurious marble floors, soaking tubs and illuminated bathroom mirrors inlaid with mother of pearl.
