Wynn Las Vegas to Add Additional 'Atrium' Villas

Posted by Hunter

Wynn Las Vegas will add four new villas to the South side of the hotel, near the existing atrium villas on the pool side of the building.

Two of the villas have four bedrooms and the other two have three. All have media rooms, massage areas, spas and outdoor space with gardens and pools. They will be very similar to the existing atrium villas.

Adding these villas will require some of the landscaping in the South Tower area to be removed and reconfigured. Plans show another entrance from the street level as well.

Man, where do you get this stuff? :)

So then I'm assuming Steve is staying put. With only five usable Apartment/Atrium/whatever-you-want-to-call-them villas, Wynn was definitely in need to up the number of 6000 square foot plus rooms.

You know I'm wondering now with the construction and the creation of more of these villas, if they'll be more lenient in letting a peon like me reserve one.

I'm wonder where they will build them...

On the South side of the complex near the driveway from Sands. There's a sliver of space.

And - where exactly will they put this stuff?

This picture is a good shot of the 3 existing villas on the south side. I can't see how or where they could add another -4- villas of that scale in this area of the property. The only way I can even picture it is if they were built on the rooftop of the ballrooms, at 90 degrees to the existing villas. However I can't imagine the ballrooms were designed to support what would essentially be 4 small homes on their rooftops, with plumbing, electric, cable, gas, pool filtration, butler elevators, etc. I would think it would make a lot more sense to incorporate new villas into Encore or possibly extend the North Fairway Villas further around the course. I don't see what benefit the South location has that would justify the cost of retrofitting the existing structure.

Altogether, it's 25,000 square feet of new building and the structure is about 80 feet high.

The new building will go almost all the way to Sands Ave.

Ok I can see a 'sliver' of space here:,-115.16544&spn=0.002188,0.003616

But it really is just a sliver - certainly not 33% larger than what the existing ones take up in footprint. I suppose I can picture it a little easier if they take out the little 'loop' in the south driveway where the limos and shuttles go. But still - why go to all that trouble when you can just incorporate new villas into Encore?

I assume privacy is the reason the existing villas have a brick wall instead of an open view of the pools, just as the Bellagio villas seem like they could have easiy had a fountain view. But based on that photo, it seems like the villas would be highly visible from some of the corner rooms in the tower. Am I seeing that wrong?

KY, Villas 6, 7, and 8 can be seen by anybody with a strip view as they're on the front of the hotel. 1, 2, and 3 can only be fully seen by people with Tower Suites on the south end.

Thanks, Mike E. I found an aerial photo of the front of Wynn. My thinking was just that if I were to be in a villa, I would want a pleasant outdoor area with a nice view. I was surprised not to see that at Bellagio the first time I saw those, and again at Wynn, then figured the walls were for privacy, but that it didn't look that private. Anyway, I'm never going to be in a villa at any hotel, so it doesn't really matter what I would want.

KY, that's actually the reason why the newly renovated ground-floor Fairway Villas have made a big splash with Wynn's ultra-high rollers. If traveling without an entourage, what's losing a couple thousand square feet for an incredible view? As much as I'd love to one day stay in the Atrium Villas, I'd try and get at least three others to share with me or I'd feel a bit isolated.

Wynn's four new suites/villas are also on the agenda of the 2/20/07 Planning Meeting:
