New $850 million Las Vegas hotel will focus on ‘wellness’ rather than gambling with a complex of spas and health treatments

  • Las Vegas complex called The Majestic to offer health spas and body treatments
  • The $850 million ‘non-gaming’ hotel will not have any gambling or slot machines
  • Developer Lorenzo Doumani says guests do not have to go to Vegas to gamble
  • Casinos in Nevada reported $11.9 billion revenues in 2018 – the third largest ever 

A new $850 million hotel in Las Vegas will focus on health and ‘wellness’ rather than gambling and slot machines.

Known as The Majestic, the ‘non-gaming’ non-smoking, ultra-luxury complex offers spas, body treatments and fitness classes instead of roulette and blackjack tables.

Plans show the 45-story five star hotel which will have 720 rooms, will be near the city’s new convention center, which is currently under construction.   

A four-level, 70,000 square foot fitness, nutrition and ‘med spa’ facility provides body treatments as well as personal nutritionists and physicals.

Clark County commissioner authorized the six-acre project would also feature restaurants, plus 10 floors of convention and meeting space.

Construction on The Majestic is scheduled to begin in April or May next year, with completion estimated for early 2023. 

Casinos in Nevada reported $11.9 billion in revenues last year, which represents the third-largest total in the state’s history, according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board. 

But developer Lorenzo Doumani, owner of Majestic Resorts, does not think the company will miss out on revenues by not offering gambling to guests as ‘there’s gambling everywhere now’.

He told Fox News: ‘It’s not just the casinos and the smoke and all of that. There’s a lot of very healthy people in Vegas.’

Doumani bought the 12-story Clarion hotel in 2014 and imploded it in early 2015 to make way for the new Majestic. 

But Doumani struggled to get Federal Aviation Administration approval for the new hotel’s proposed height of around 620 feet. 

He added the hotel aims to give ‘the best in health and wellness’ and a provide personalized programs to prevent potential future health complications. 

The Clarion was sold at auction after going bankrupt under actress Debbie Reynolds, in 1998 by the World Wrestling Federation.

A wrestling-themed casino was planned for the site but it was sold in 2000 before being sold to a series of different developers. 

The new planned Majestic Hotel sits on the site of the former Clarion, which was pulled down in 2015 after being bought by a series of different developers 

End of an era: Last Las Vegas peep show closes

An adult video and bookstore believed to have operated the last remaining peep show in Las Vegas has closed to make way for a marijuana dispensary. 

Showgirl Video shut down last month after nearly four decades, marking the end of an era in Sin City.

The building will soon be torn down to make way for a marijuana dispensary, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

It was believed to be the last place in Las Vegas with a peep show – where dancers perform behind a window that opened when a customer placed $1 into a machine.

Las Vegas passed an ordinance in 1992 banning sexually oriented businesses along the Strip, but Showgirl Video was grandfathered in under old code.

Raymond Pistol, who sold the business in 2016, believes many adult businesses have been overtaken by the internet.
