Official Announcement Regarding The New Mayan Themed Destination Resort Coming…
Update 7/10: Received update from Mr. L that the London-based investor has backed out, due to not being able to acquire the second piece of land that was necessary for expansion. Mr. L has high hopes…and we wish him the best.
Update: 4/19 - Received word from Mr. L that the official announcement has been postponed until all contracts are finalized.
Last week we revealed a new themed strip resort that is coming to the strip. This week, we can tell you a bit more. It’s a Mayan-themed resort. Our source, Mr. L, has been working on this project for several years.
A group responsible for designing one of the most innovative destination resorts in the world is about to announce its arrival upon the Las Vegas Strip after having spent nearly three years transforming this unique concept into a viable project. It’s to begin a bit smaller, with the potential to expand over time.
The project is expected to be announced sometime later in the week regarding the name of the resort and its location, along with a list of the development’s partners. However, at this time, it can be revealed that the project will be located near the North Strip and will also include three phases, with the first phase consisting of only one 38-story hotel housing a 76,500 square foot casino. Those involved in the development of the project include a very well-known gaming operator, along with two major investment firms providing the requisite funding, with all having been instrumental in acquiring the most suitable property. The project is to be funded by the two major investment groups just mentioned; one based in London, while the other is a prominent investment group from the UAE.
A reasonable timeline has been established regarding the other two phases of the project being brought online, only to commence if room demand were to exceed supply.
This particular rendering (above) is a previous version specifically created for the initial property, which also included a phase 3, (comprising of the three Mayan pyramid-looking hotels in the foreground). The final project has many of the same elements, only with a slight realignment being required so as to incorporate them into the smaller, more suitable piece of real estate. This was an early rendering, actual location not depicted above. Final location/renderings are coming next week.
This new resort is expected to position itself amongst the other great ‘Wonders of the World’ along the Strip with specifics regarding the project, its operators and funding details (as well as a final rendering) to be revealed later this week.
While the resort’s architecture harkens back to the age of an enlightened people, it impresses with its own truly extraordinary contemporary design, somehow fusing the two contrasting universes into one. For Mr. L, the rationale for bringing this highly themed destination resort to Las Vegas is simple, fascination!
Millions travel around the world to explore many of the ancient ruins in Egypt, Israel, Iraq, Belize, and Mexico to learn the history of ancient civilizations. But, prior to the Luxor Hotel (and other incarnations dotting the Strip), many knew very little about them, other than what they had learned in history class. – Mr. L
This new resort (designed by the same illustrator responsible for the ‘original’ Sinai Luxor) has the very same aspirations for his new project–not simply to educate, amuse and entertain the masses–but provide guests with an experience they will never forget.
“Where else can one say they have stayed in a Mayan-inspired hotel while enjoying a state-of-the-art water park designed to appear like you are making your way through a Mayan rainforest? Only in Las Vegas!” -Mr. L
More details will be provided during their announcement next week.
