Las Vegas Hotel Offers Three-night Casino Stay Package For $1 Million

The Palms Casino Resort, near the Las Vegas Strip, opened in November 2001. It has more than 700 rooms, a concert theatre, and a Michelin star restaurant. 

Station Casinos bought the Palms in May 2016 for $313m (£240m) and immediately began a $690 m (£529m) renovation. The third and final phase of the project is scheduled to finish by the end of the year.

New pricey package for ultra-wealthy

The luxurious Empathy Suite, which has amazing views and great amenities, was added as part of the renovation. The Palms is offering a $1m (£770,000) package that includes three nights in the Empathy Suite, making it the world’s most expensive hotel suite.

Designed by Damien Hirst, the suite contains 9,000 square feet. Guest staying there will be waited on hand and foot with private butlers and will have access to rare bottles of champagne and wine.

This includes five bottles of Clase Azul Ultra Magnum, 100 bottles of Dom Perignon Brut Luminous, 100 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose Luminous, an Ace of Spades brut 30-liter bottle, and an Ace of Spades rosé 30-liter bottle.

The new package is part of the resort’s launch of a new nightclub called Kaos. The theme includes art pieces from Hirst himself. Among them is his 60-foot-tall statue, “Demon with Bowl.”

Hirst collaborated with Bentel & Bentel to embroider and emboss butterflies, pills, and skulls on various pieces of furniture, leather walls, sofas and drapery. Spin paintings can be found on the billiard stools and table. Butterfly and skull carvings pop out of Himalayan salt block walls in the salt therapy room. Two hundred forty coloured Dots on each column flank the pool/spa, and there are 200 vinyl pill appliques on the Villa’s exterior and interior.

Reserved for million-dollar casino players, the stay comes with 24-hour butler service, a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Palms collection, chauffeured car service, a $10,000 credit to use at the resort, and celebrity-style access to venues such as KAOS Dayclub & Nightclub, the Pearl Concert Theater, and the famed on-property recording studio.

Bearing a storied legacy, this suite was formerly the Hugh Hefner-themed Villa when Palms partnered with Playboy from 2006 to 2012.
