Are you ready for a real trip back in time? We’re talking precisely about the Pharaonic era, the time of ancient Egypt. With its sophisticated service, the second largest hotel in Vegas, Luxor, is the most refined and modern hotel on the Strip. All this with a lot of mystery among its grand architectural halls that tell the story of Egypt as you’ve never seen it before…
Imposing even before you enter the hotel, the façade, made up of a pyramid and a sphinx, are worthy of the amount spent on construction, 675 million dollars invested to complete this true work of art, inaugurated on October 13, 1993. Located on the south side of Las Vegas Boulevard, close to the city’s international airport, the stunning hotel also puts on a show at night. As the sun falls, the pyramid emits a beam of blue light from its top, reproduced by 39 lamps. Its jet is so strong that they say you can see the bright spot from space.
Try your luck…
From the outset, Luxor’s casino is full of power, with more than 2,000 machines and 87 gaming tables. The eighth largest hotel in the world has 11,148 square meters of gaming space. Among the diversions for adults are Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, as well as video poker and Keno. The Racing and Sports Center also showcases the latest technology, including high-definition plasma TVs and 110 individual seats with monitors, where you can watch your games live.
Its 30 floors and 11,000 m² of floor space offer rooms with extremely tasteful decoration. Not forgetting the smallest details, the suites are designed with contemporary design and a modern touch. The more than 4,000 rooms have a king-size bed or two queens. In addition to Internet access, a spacious closet, a lighted make-up mirror and a bathtub separate from the shower, which is very hard to find here in the United States.
Looking for a moment to really relax on your vacation? There’s nothing better than enjoying the authentic oasis that this little piece of Egypt offers. The complex’s outdoor pools have cabanas, sun loungers and VIP service without having to miss the sun, and the whole area is surrounded by greenery.
At the spa you can take advantage of some free time to enjoy a pleasant shower with the scent of ginger, as well as hydromassage baths and massages to suit all tastes. Complimentary fruit, juice and water are available for breaks during your care sessions. The fitness area has weight training equipment, yoga balls and free weights.
This is a part that deserves a special place in your agenda, as the greatest shows take place on the Luxor’s stages. Meet them…
