Crystal Lagoons has announced its partnership with Wynn Resorts to transform the Las Vegas Strip into a beach-front paradise with stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing, swimming, sailing and other water sports as well as a convention centre, hotel, dining precinct and casino.
Miami-based Crystal Lagoons has teamed up with Steve Wynn to reinvent the iconic destination once more, setting a new record for the largest Crystal Lagoon in the U.S.
“We have a chance to reinvent Las Vegas and make the whole venue an entertainment attraction…an idyllic beach paradise surrounded by white sand beaches,” said Steve Wynn chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts.
“People come to Las Vegas from all over the world to live large and have a good time and we can dish up an irresistible entertainment attraction,” he said.
A 38-acre Crystal Lagoon will be the centrepiece of the development that will feature 260,000 square feet of premium meetings and convention space, a 1,000-room hotel tower, a small casino and extensive dining and nightlife. The elaborate water attraction will include both daytime and night time entertainment elements. At night, the space will transform with an elaborate fireworks display that is launched from the 120 ft. centre island and surrounding areas. The expansion will be constructed on approximately 130 acres of real estate that currently houses the Wynn Golf Club.
The man-made lagoon with crystal-clear waters and white-sand beaches will be the size of more than 30 football fields and close to the size of almost 100 Olympic-size swimming pools. The new Crystal Lagoon will change the Las Vegas lifestyle by making water sports readily available, such as stand-up paddle-boarding, wind-surfing, sailing, swimming and more. With this new beachfront destination, guests will enjoy beach life and the outdoor activities that Las Vegas was missing before.
The project remains subject to the final approval of Wynn’s Board, but has the full backing of CEO Steve Wynn.
