Rolls-Royce gambling on a partnership with luxury hotels.
Wynn Las Vegas is an exciting match for Rolls-Royce. The luxury Wynn and Encore hotels are on one hand, over-the-top colorful and eclectic. But if one looks closer, the properties maintain an acute sense of style, attention to detail and refined wealth, along with a clientele that can acquire a Rolls-Royce with ease.
One can shop in the indoor mall at McQueen, Cartier or Chanel, dine at four-star restaurants on fish flown in daily from Hana, Hawaii or grass–fed Kobe beef and be ferried around town in largest fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms in North America.
Yes, there’s a top-edge fitness center and spa and the country club hosts an 18-hole golf course with a 37-foot waterfall. Everywhere you look there’s another sensory experience. The exquisite scents are even piped in! Of course, each of the resorts has two main casino floors as well as numerous private casinos.
But even more exciting for this luxury car enthusiast is the arrangement with Rolls-Royce. Gerry Spahn, Head of Communications for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Wynn resorts personify the luxury experience. We wanted to put that all together—the Wynn’s food, wine, entertainment, art, environment and partner that with Rolls-Royce Phantom and the way our chauffeurs treat the client.”
Here are some fun facts:
The Wynn and Encore have a rich gallery of beautiful artworks.
“You never own any of this stuff, you just have custody. And frankly that’s enough But then they’re meant to be shared with everybody,” said Steve Wynn.
At the Botero restaurant in Encore, The Seated Woman, a 2,755-pound sculpture by Fernando Botero, was brought into the restaurant on blocks of ice, which melted as she found her final position. Other works of art include Jeff Koon’s 3 ton Tulips a 6 ½-foot tall Popeye, and the wood constructed 1918 Eiffel Chandelier by Gustave Eiffel, the artist who designed the Eiffel Tower.
There are approximately 30 red chandeliers in the Encore Casino, representing one of the largest Moreno Italian glass purchases in Italy’s history. The real story is how they create the red color. 24-karat gold heated to a very high temperature is then cooled and reheated.
The Wynn boasts the largest horticulture team on the Strip. They maintain the bushels of blossoms that drip from hanging pots or surround indoor pathways to the 140-foot, man-made mountain that forms a natural barrier between The Strip and Wynn Las Vegas.
The mountain, covered with over 1,500 trees, is built with mature pines (some of them over 50-feet tall). The trees were repurposed from the Desert Inn golf course to help eliminate the noise and light pollution from the Strip. Wynn has four strong gardeners that climb and repel to maintain the mountain and the restaurants around the mountain.
But there’s more. A waterfall cascades 40 feet into the three-acre Lake of Dreams. The Lake, resplendent with over 4,000 colorful lights, hosts a nightly environmental theater that uses the elements of light, water, architecture, music and imagery to create a multi-media experience.
