Up until now, we thought there was no improving perfection, but then Aria Resort went ahead and reimagined its seven Skyvillas and underwent a complete redesign of its 420 Sky Suites. The well-known KES Studio’s donned Aria’s two-bedroom Skyvillas in a new avatar while Rottet Studio breathed new life into Aria’s new 420 Sky Suites. The MGM property, located at the heart of the bustling Vegas Strip, has earned a name for being among the top-ranking hotels in Vegas. From the most lip-smacking delicacies in Michelin-star restaurant Din Tai Fung to a sprawling sanctuary of care, that is their 80,000-square-foot, desert-inspired spa, and a serene pool oasis, and the resort has something for everyone! Add a few long hours of gaming entertainment; Aria knows exactly how to give the people who have it all something extra.
The seven superlative two-bedroom Skyvillas flaunt a unique palette, personality, and layout. The designers hit a bull’s-eye with a soft contemporary design aesthetic inside that displays a contrasting, brightly-lit Vegas through the floor-to-ceiling windows on the outside. The tasteful, individualistic jewel-toned furnishings give the room a touch of regality. While utterly lavish, the living rooms also create an intimate ambiance with flow-through sofas and furniture. All said and done, the suites and Skyvillas are Aria’s highlight, and luckily for regular Richie Richs, they just got even better.
These 2,000- to 7,000-square-foot residences sit at the apex of Aria, offering posh art-deco bathrooms (stocked with the likes of Hermès, Bulgari, or Creed products), blue-chip art, and fully-stocked caparisoned bars, among other fancy aspects. Skyvillas come with their own in-villa kitchens for esteemed guests who are particular about their tastes and don’t find à la carte tempting. Aria puts a celebrity chef in charge of preparing a memorable meal followed by a cigar sommelier, who, if called upon, will bring up a selection of impossible-to-find offerings. Before these high-tech accouterments even begin to work their charm, guests are floored with Rolls-Royce Phantoms and Champagne-baring butlers who whisk them directly up to their accommodations.
The Sky Suites are commodious rooms ranging from 1,050 to 2,060 square feet inundated with muted blues and silvers. The suites impress with their mid-century modern styling, seen in one- and two-bedroom accommodations. Sky Suites offer their guests a personal concierge, private pool, private entrance, and some moments of frivolity with game kits such as backgammon, checkers, and chess. While the high rollers can always go to the casino floor for guests who would want to soak up the luxury of the suites they can try live roulette games. Something more adventurous on your mind? The 24-hour concierge team is at your disposal to secure difficult last-minute reservations, tickets, and the like.
According to Luxury Travel Magazine, Anton Nikodemus, President & COO of Aria, said, “In reimagining Aria’s Skyvillas and Sky Suites, our crown jewels, we took great care to consider what would enhance and differentiate ARIA’s award-winning experience. Inspiring design and breathtaking views are complemented by exceptional, detail-oriented service, creating unparalleled stays for our guests.”
He added, “In selecting firms to help Aria reimagine our Skyvillas and Sky Suites, we sought innovative and smart design partners to deliver timeless, stunning, one-of-a-kind hospitality environments. Based on their portfolios and fresh, artistic perspectives, there was no question KES Studio and Rottet Studio shared our vision. I’m incredibly proud of what we collectively created and look forward to welcoming our guests from around the world to explore our newest offerings.”
