Scott Sibella: On Top Of The World
As president of Resorts World Las Vegas and a long-time Strip executive, Scott has been overseeing excellence at destination resorts for over 30 years. He was kind enough to sit down with us and provide an update on all things Resorts World Las Vegas.
What makes Resorts World the greatest new experience in Las Vegas?
A lot of things. We’re ‘the new kid on the block’. Resorts World Las Vegas is the first strip property to be built in over a decade, so we had a natural advantage to create the most technologically advanced resort and casino experience in Las Vegas simply because today’s technology didn’t exist ten years ago.
“Guests are enjoying the fresh and exciting atmosphere. Our goal is to be ‘best in class’ and build a truly integrated property with best entertainment, nightlife, room accommodations and dining on the Strip.”
How has your prior experience in the industry helped your transition to Resorts World?
I was raised in Las Vegas and grew up in the industry. Running some of the biggest properties on the Strip – The Mirage, Treasure Island, and MGM Grand – has allowed me to watch this city evolve from a unique perspective. Over the years we’ve seen somewhat of a paradigm shift.
Guests are spending just as much or more on non-gaming amenities such as entertainment and food and beverage and we have programmed Resorts World Las Vegas with that in mind.
What future Resorts World plans are you most excited about?
We are officially done with phase one of construction and are working through plans for Phase two. We just opened the Resorts World Passenger Station as part of the Vegas Loop, which connects the resort to the LVCC via Elon Musk’s innovative underground transportation system.
We’re really excited to debut the Los Angeles – based favorite, Crossroads Kitchen, this spring, which will be the first plant-based fine dining restaurant on the Strip.
“With over 3,500 guest rooms, over 40 restaurants and bars, and a 5,000 capacity theatre, Resorts World Las Vegas is as big as it gets. With pool season officially up and running, Scott is excited to have both Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub open simultaneously, featuring some of the biggest names in music, from Zedd to Tiesto to DJ Snake.”
Without a doubt, Resorts World Las Vegas is the number one destination on the Strip, sunup to sundown, and Scott Sibella intends to keep it that way.
