May 8, 2017, Beijing-This summer will witness the debut of Bellagio, a legendary hotel brand on the Bund in Shanghai. This is the luxury destination hotel brand conceived in Las Vegas and brought to China by Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality. Building up its reputation over the past two decades, the world-renowned legendary brand will surely start a new chapter for the luxury hotel market in China.
BELLAGIO, A BORN LEGEND
The Bellagio brand will always be associated with Bellagio Las Vegas, a high-end luxury hotel managed by MGM Resorts International-the global titan in the hotel, resorts and entertainment business. Headquartered in Las Vegas, the group is home to a number of prestigious hotel brands including Bellagio, MGM, Aria and Mandalay Bay, all of which have an outstanding reputation for energy and entertainment. Bellagio is undoubtedly one of the most treasured.
Bellagio Hotel was inspired by the village of Bellagio nestling beside Lake Como in the north of Italy. The tranquil and elegant village enjoys an unparalleled lake view, making itself a part of the charming and picturesque scenery. Extraordinarily refined and romantic, Bellagio is nothing short of unforgettable for global travelers in awe of its¬beauty.
In 1998, Bellagio Las Vegashad celebrated its grand opening and gained instant acclaim from The Strip to the world, bringing the hospitality of the city into a luxurious new age. With a cost of 1.6 billion, the hotel is abundantly provided with 3933 rooms and suites with sweeping vistas. From the moment guests enter their accommodation, they feel wrapped in comfort and luxury. Endowed with facilities of arts and greeting guests with cordiality and warmth, it is an incarnation of the brand essence Nothing Short of Unforgettable.
With its grand architecture standing gracefully by the eight-and-a-halfacre lake, the fountains of Bellagio dance in sync with the music, creating the most spectacular view and dreamlike landscape beyond the wildest imagination. Bellagio presents the most ambitious features ever conceived in terms of choreographic complexity and scale: more than a thousand fountains dance in front of the hotel, enhanced by music and light. The performances range from delicate and whimsical to grand and commanding.
Walking into the lobby, a 195m² wide crystal chandelier called Fiori di Como, will never fail to monopolize attention with over 2000 hand-blown "Chihuly Glass" flowers. The flower petals, in every rich and vibrant color, hang in an explosive three-dimensional glass sculpture lit from behind. Conservatory is another buzzworthy spot that will detain guests with blooming flowers and trees reflecting each of the four seasons and the Chinese New Year, dazzling arriving guests with the most powerful initial impression possible and intoxicating them in natural fragrance. Bellagio has begun to establish its unmistakable personality. A handful of world renowned masterpieces on display in the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art confirm the hotel’s artistic credentials. The "O" show endows Bellagio with another dimension - exquisite and sophisticated elegance and beauty, the excitement lingering in the memory long after the show has finished. Two AAA5 diamond grade restaurants have made Bellagio Las Vegas one of a kind…
Michelin star fine dining, shopping in the boutique gallery, colorful nightlife, all the joys of Vegas can be perfectly experiencedat Bellagio Las Vegas. While the beauty of nature, the beauty of romance, the beauty of art and the beauty of elegance have made Bellagio Las Vegas stand out in complete contrast to what people know or expect from Las Vegas. It is like a pearl shining in the center of the Las Vegas Strip, attracting celebrities and travelers from all over the world as one of the must-go destinations. Bellagio has already become an iconic hotel brand defining ahospitality culture of luxurious lifestyle with ultimate elegance.
