Lucky Dragon Las Vegas opened it’s door December 3, 2016 exposing Las Vegas to an authentic experience into Asian culture. Located just off of Sahara and Las Vegas Boulevard, Lucky Dragon is a one-of-a-kind resort offering a home away from home for its visitors.
Lucky Dragon’s unique design separates the hotel from gaming in two parallel buildings connected by a sky bridge.
Upon entering the hotel, guests are greeted by multilingual staff in an intimate lobby featuring the Cha Garden, pool, reception desk and business center.
The modern black and white design is accented by customary tea pots, reds and golds and marble counters.
Their lobby area overlooks the open pool area and features sliding patio doors that open for special events and good weather.
The pool, during open season, can be reserve red for private events including their upcoming Southwest Tea Festival February 24 – 25.
The hotel is very small featuring only 203 rooms including standard double and king rooms, deluxe rooms, standard suites and junior suites. The red tint from the outside of the building also adds a crimson ambiance to all of the rooms.
Both suites feature a separate living room with couch and sitting chair and offer the best view of the strip and city. Each room displays lucky artwork within the bedroom varying from cherry blossoms to lychee as pictured above.
Every room comes with kimono styled robes and complimentary slippers to take home. The bathrooms are also spacious featuring hand painted designs, open concept shower and modern flooring and decor.
In Chinese culture, the number four is unlucky so you’ll notice the property omits that floor completely. But the number eight is luckiest of all and room 888 is the most pop VVIP suite. These suites even have their own private hallways.
Upon entering the casino, you are immediately mesmerized by the dragon chandelier hanging from the center of the ceiling. The two-story complex offers western and asian games, multiple dining options and several private bars.
The property hosts a custom spa, leased out by Sothys Paris, and features only their products. Guests even receive complimentary samples for their in room amenities.
The Spa offers treatments in their aroma therapy rooms and features a custom designed pedicure station. Each station faces a floor to ceiling view of the Las Vegas Strip.
Although the Spa does feature a men and women’s locker room, all guests are escorted to a co-ed lounge waiting area.
The property features three restaurants Bao Now, Oceans and Phoenix ranging from fast food to fine dining. They are currently working an additional option in their previous outlet “Dragons Alley.”
Bao Now is the cafe style option that offers Chinese cuisine fast with playground seating.
Oceans offers high-end seafood and Chinese cuisine dum sum style.
Phoenix is the high-end option offering open and private room dining.
Although the property is extremely small, rooms have been sold out every weekend since opening. Created with the Chinese customer in mind, everything within the property is written in Chinese and then English. Right off the strip, it’s an interesting resort to add to the plentiful options Vegas has to offer.
