The destination estimates the project will be finished this fall.

MGM Resorts' Bellagio in Las Vegas has unveiled plans to renovate all its 819 guest rooms and 104 suites within the Spa Tower. The company estimates the updates will cost close to $110m.

The company hopes to complete the project by October. However, the first collection of rooms could be open for guests as early as July.

The Bellagio says the newly announced facelift was inspired by “the beauty and tranquility of Italy's Lake Como.”

Champalimaud Design, in partnership with MGM Resorts International Design Group, will provide custom furnishings throughout the Spa Tower. Its suites will feature both artwork and color schemes that are heavily influenced by Lake Como and the Alps, as well as by Italian culture and style.

Winston Kong, Partner at Champalimaud Design, said: "We wanted to create a residential aesthetic with the timeless sense of luxury that is uniquely Bellagio.

“We found inspiration in the colors of Lake Como's surrounding flora and the classical style of the building's architecture.”

Bellagio President and COO Ann Hoff discussed how the upgrades fall in line with the destination’s desire to offer its guests quality accommodations.

She commented: "Bellagio's commitment to delivering unparalleled accommodations, experiences and guest service for our discerning guests from around the world is the hallmark of our brand promise.

"The Spa Tower's beautiful and luxurious new suites and guest rooms will reinforce our position as one of the hospitality industry's premier destinations."

Bellagio recently completed renovations to its main tower, which holds more than 2,500 rooms. The group said it plans to work with Champalimaud Design to redesign its 400 suites in Bellagio Tower in 2024.
