The newly renovated Palms Casino Resort exaggerates genuine extravagance - not only due to its signature sky villas, shark tanks or themed suites, but with one of those suites reining most expensive in the world.
Within the 342-room Fantasy tower that is surrounded by it’s neighbours -The Ivory Tower and Palms Place, you will find six one-and-two story sky villas filled with contemporary furnishings, and attached to their very own infinity pools - acting as an alluring escape from the hustle and bustle of the strip below.
The interior of one of the hotel’s most expensive suites marked at $100,000/night has taken the concept of luxe to a whole new level - where it’s stylish decor is classified an obvious understatement.
The new Damien Hirst designed empathy suite is marked as both a suite and an art piece - showcasing some of Hirst’s most renowned work, like the iconic “Winner/Loser,” with two bull sharks suspended in formaldehyde, a cabinet full of symmetrically lined cubic zirconia (The Winner Takes It All), and Hirst's 13-seat curved bar, with “ Here for a good time, not a long time” hung above two glass display cases, containing the skeleton of a marlin fish and a taxidermic marlin.
“We wanted to create a sense of discovery throughout the property, and art was the perfect way to do it"
- Jon Gray, General Manager of Palms Casino Resort.
With an additional two master bedrooms, massage rooms, lounge areas to accommodate up to 52 of your closest friends and a cantilevered pool overlooking the Las Vegas strip, it seems the suite would attract every high roller in the city and provides a once in a lifetime stay.
Hirst’s Empathy Suite also comes with 24-hour butler service, a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Palms collection, chauffeured car service and a $10,000 credit to use at the resort.
The state of the art hotel also offers the Scotch 80 Prime steakhouse, APEX Social Club, Camden cocktail lounge, a high-limit room, the Pearl concert theater, and a redesigned casino floor, along with the Unknown bar and it’s flagship piece - a segmented shark, preserved in glass and steel tanks of formaldehyde that tower over the sleek white marble bar and high rollers sipping cocktails.
Artwork bearing multicolored spots hang on the walls around it, infusing the tanks with rainbow-hued reflections of dots. To what’s otherwise a minimalist space, the shark provides a grand centerpiece, in correlation with it’s cream-colored leather banquettes and ivory silk throw pillows.
The artworks of Damien Hirst don’t end inside, but instead continue out into the Palms resorts’ very own day and night club - Kaos. Here, you will find the centerpiece of the area “Demon With Bowl”- a massive bronze monster towering 60 feet above pool-side cabanas. The club has also previously announced residencies by Cardi B, G-EAZY, Kaskade, Marshmello and Skrillex, who will all call the newly-renovated hotel home.
It’s safe to say that this iconic resort proves to push the boundaries of style, yet encompass every detail of sophistication.
