Re-envisioned by Rockwell Group, the world’s first Nobu Hotel will feature 182 redesigned guest rooms and suites, as well as public areas, by the end of 2021.
As the world’s first Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace commemorates its eighth anniversary, the luxury boutique hotel within the iconic Las Vegas resort embarks on a multimillion-dollar refresh of all 182 guest rooms and public areas. Construction is set to be complete by the end of 2021. This is one of several projects in development as Caesars Entertainment, Inc. expands its longstanding partnership with Nobu Hospitality – the global lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper.
To create a more modern, residential feel at Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, the award-winning global architecture and design firm Rockwell Group has re-envisioned the guest rooms and common areas it first designed in 2013. Rockwell Group has drawn inspiration from kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold epoxy – creating cohesion from collage. This element will create a streamlined, lighter and more luxe take on the original design concept.
“Eight years ago, we developed the world’s first celebrity chef-branded hotel venture with Nobu Hospitality, bringing Nobu’s signature style and sophistication to the Las Vegas Strip,” said Martha Morales, General Manager of Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace. “As the city continues to evolve as one of the top destinations for entertainment, sports and gaming, we are committed to investing in Las Vegas. From the Nobu Hotel refresh to the Caesars Palace main entrance renovation – Caesars is proud to offer experiences that guests can only find at our resorts.”
The focal piece of the new guest rooms will be a custom sofa in a dozen different patch-worked upholsteries, from painterly-style prints to muted textured graphics. The redesigned rooms will also feature a quartzite coffee table with a gold base and a cracked kintsugi effect, along with additional lighting. New custom carpet will have aubergine hues, as well as abstract and painterly-style florals – inspired by 19th Century Japanese artist Tsubaki Chinzan – overlaid with gold kintsugi veining. Another welcome addition will be a statement desk or dining table, which will be connected to the dresser by a quartz buffer. The refreshed suites will also feature new furniture, rugs and flooring.
Redesigned guest corridors will feature a custom carpet with rippling forms, suggesting a pond of koi fish that cluster at each guest room door, and patterns inspired by suminagashi – the art of Japanese paper marbling. In addition, the new inset lobby carpet will depict monumental slabs of marble and agate surrounded by gold veining, with pops of gray, rust and blue.
Caesars Entertainment and Nobu Hospitality recently announced future developments of two new Nobu Hotels and restaurants at Harrah's New Orleans and Caesars Atlantic City, as well as a Nobu restaurant at Paris Las Vegas.
