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.

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.”

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.
