Bellagio Reveals Room Upgrade Designs and They’re Sexy AF

Bellagio resort is renovating its rooms and guests will be able to check out the redesign as soon as April 2021.

No renovation cost was given by Bellagio, but we’re pegging it at $100 million based upon comparable projects as well as our boundless capacity for winging it.

The best room upgrade at Bellagio would involve the demolition of Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s. Just saying.

All 2,568 of Bellagio’s guest rooms will feature designs that “take inspiration from the movement of water, the beauty of nature and the vibrant reflections of light seen at sunrise and set.”

Basically, they’re inspired by the resort’s iconic dancing fountains.

Everything in a Las Vegas hotel room has to be, how do we put this, forgiving.

Here’s more from the news release: “While the Premier King Room features a blue palette reflective of the sky just before sunrise, the Premier Two Queen Room is designed around yellow tones inspired by the sky at sunset. Both designs encompass strong, bold elements that are soothing and calming for guests either beginning or ending their day.”

That’s a TV, not art. Otherwise, it would be like when you go to a friend’s house and they have a big photo of themselves on the wall. Awkward.

The rooms were designed by The Gettys Group in partnership with MGM Resorts International Design Group.

Let’s be real, you don’t care about who designed the rooms, you just want to know if you can have a threesome in the shower. Yes, you can, it’s “over-sized.” There are also dual sinks, you freak.

This is the point where we link to our story, 11 Things to Consider When Choosing a Las Vegas Hotel Room for the Best Sex. You’re welcome.

Per the news release: “Taking the place of the traditional bathtub is an over-sized shower featuring an open doorless entry and breathtaking marble throughout.” Yep, bathtubs are out.

Guests don’t use tubs at hotels, so they’re becoming a thing of the past. Shower-only rooms make up a quarter of all rooms in the U.S.

It’s also worth nothing there is someone who genuinely thinks a marble exists that’s so beautiful it can take your breath away.

In less awkward room design news, the new Bellagio rooms incorporate “bespoke elements,” as everything fancy in Las Vegas must.

The vast majority of Bellagio rooms are non-smoking, so you can actually smell the roses.

Please do not ask us what a “bespoke element” is. If the news release says it’s a thing, it’s a thing, so just go with it. Saying something is “custom-made” is so 2014.

We honestly wouldn’t know a bespoke element if we tripped over one. Which raises an interesting question: If you injured yourself tripping over a bespoke element, would you be rushed to a hospital specializing in bespoke injuries? “Nurse! Bring me a bespoke rib spreader, stat!”

These are important questions, and not just because we needed more words to keep these room photos from slapping together.


Bespoke Rib Spreader would make a great band name.

Anyway, the bottom line is the new Bellagio rooms look awesome.

Bellagio is owned by Blackstone Group and operated by MGM Resorts. It’s clear these companies want to get a head start on the Las Vegas rebound, and competition is going to be fierce for what’s expected to be a metric hell-ton of pent-up demand.


This water-inspired carpet is even better if you hear “bloop” in your head.

The President & COO of Bellagio, Ann Hoff, says as much, “As the world returns to travel in the months and years ahead, Bellagio will be ready with this gorgeous new room product, as well as health and safety protocols throughout the resort to ensure guests feel welcome, comfortable and safe.”

As mentioned, some of the renovated rooms will be ready in April 2021, but renovations will continue through the summer.

The last renovation of rooms at Bellagio was completed in 2015 at a cost of $165 million.

The fountains that made “Ocean’s 11” famous.

It’s remarkable and reassuring casinos are making such substantial investments in their offerings following the brutal financial hit caused by the pandemic, but it’s a much-needed glimmer of hope Las Vegas is healing.

Bellagio is one of the premier resort destinations in Las Vegas, and these glorious room upgrades will ensure it stays that way.

  1. Meh, Bellagio doesn't mean what it did 25 years ago

    Sexy af is quite an exaggeration. These seem perfectly cromulent, but nothing more. Doesn’t seem worthy of the Bellagio, but I guess everything has been going downhill in Vegas for decades now.

    Love the Bellagio. So glad to see that they have taken this opportunity to upgrade the rooms, as they have needed this for awhile. I I now that these are not complete pictures of the rooms but, I do not see an armoire to hang your clothing in. Cant wait to see these in person

    Kinda surprised to see this, mainly because the rooms still seemed pretty up to date, but then realized the last renovation started around 8-10 years ago so probably well-needed. Although the color palate is rather blah af and seems better suited for Mandalay Bay.

    That being said, I am curious about the larger showers replacing the tubs. Assuming that the new showers are in the location of the current tubs, does it just mean a large empty space where the existing showers are? Is the extra space going to be drywalled and used to expand the actual room? Disco ball closet? Mini Bellagio fountain streaming from a Japanese toilet?

    The last stay I had there was just that. No turndown service, the special touches seemingly eliminated so no different than staying at the MGM Grand except the price. Hoping Bellagio steps it up a bit.

    My wife officially and expressly disapproves of any bathtub removal by any Las Vegas resort, happy wife equals happy life, of course… A large percentage of Las Vegas nights for us end up with her drinking alcohol and me not, she wanting to retire to a bathtub, and me wanting to play live poker… Bellagio gives us that, they sport the very best poker room I have had the honor of playing in. Delano has bathtubs she likes, Caesars had one she could soak in and see the Bellagio fountain show from. Next up for us is likely the Nomad, the tubs look nice and the no smoking policy in the resort is just fabulous…

    I’m so sad! Our favorite is Bellagio! But this gal wants to soak in a tub after the miles of walking all day. Vdara will be the one now.

    I have been a Bellagio guest since the Spa Tower was built, each year and sometimes twice a year. I do enjoy updates on hotel rooms and such but I think the verbiage, “They’re Sexy AF” is inappropriate. Traditional Bellagio guests do not use this type of language.

    Removing the tub and replacing it with that giant shower with only one shower head is such a terrible idea. What’s the point of having all that shower space with only one standard shower head. Not even a rain spout above. They are replacing the old shower with a closet which is how they are able to eliminate the wardrobe unit in the bedroom. I just don’t feel that a room without a large soaking tub can be categorized as a luxury 5* hotel room. The refresh looks nice but I can see it aging quickly in a few years. It’s so muted and basic that it won’t stay current. It needs more for a 5*. The comment above stating that it looks more fitting for Mandalay is 100% accurate. Bellagio is my absolute favorite home away from home but might be moving to Aria. I wonder if they will dump all the old furniture into the NYNY rooms again and disguise it as a renovated room like they did last time.

    I love the current renovation from 2015 and comfortable beds, I hope this does not change any of that. It looks like they are losing the desk which is going to make the rooms less functional for the sake of better looking….
