THE VENETIAN RESORT UNVEILS EXPERIENCES
INVITING GUESTS TO “WANT THE WORLD”

 

Las Vegas resort introduces menu of unique guest offerings and an over-the-top package

 

The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas has unveiled Want the World Experiences, a collection of curated moments inspired by the vigor, warmth and generosity of the Italian spirit. The remarkable experiences menu gives guests the opportunity to sample the rich breadth of The Venetian Resort and satisfy the desire of today’s traveler for unique and shareable moments. The offerings culminate in an exclusive, over-the-top, bookable package, combining the elegance and drama of luxury travel, with a stay in one of the resort’s lavish presidential suites.

 

“Our new Want the World Experiences turn every traveler into a tastemaker, giving them distinct experiences to share as they celebrate every moment,” said Marcy Miles, chief marketing officer of The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. 

 

The Want the World Experiences further the story of The Venetian Resort and its new creative campaign, inspired by the magnitude of unique opportunities available at the iconic resort. Campaign ads include the anthem “I Want It Now,” a custom remix of a classic cinematic moment. The visual approach to the campaign — and the new resort experiences menu – collectively draw energy from the playful song, paired with rich tones of gold and red for an added layer of decadence.  

 

“Want the World is about reveling in all The Venetian Resort has to offer,” continued Miles. “From our culinary delights to our Cocktail Collective, our iconic gondolas and expansive suites, guests can truly have the world here at our resort.” 

 

WANT THE WORLD PACKAGE*

 

A luxurious over-the-top suite package provides an experience where no whim is too wild and every desire is anticipated. The ultimate trip begins by arriving in Las Vegas via private jet, where a Maybach vehicle awaits to whisk the guest to a 6,500 square-foot presidential suite for a four-night stay, replete with a private butler and fully stocked bar. Other amenities designed to indulge include:

  • Monogrammed red silk pajamas
  • Swarovski red crystal-encrusted magnum of Moët Champagne
  • The ultimate welcome amenity: a replica of the resort’s signature armillary sphere hand-crafted from artisan chocolate, atop a cake adorned with a 2.5 total carat ruby and diamond necklace and matching 2.47 carat Burma ruby and diamond ring from Bellusso Jewelers
The splendor abounds across the resort with: 

 

  • Gold-flecked cocktails at The Dorsey cocktail bar

The culinary feast is paired with premium beverage options that represent the restaurant’s modern take on authentic Chinese cuisine. The menu has been curated specifically around the fortune-inducing hue of red, in order to conjure feelings of joy, happiness and good fortune — as is significant in Chinese culture — while also satiating appetites. 

 

  • Dom Pérignon by the Glass at The Rosina Cocktail Bar An opportunity to indulge in a glass of vintage Dom Pérignon, the champagne that embodies perfect balance.

 

  • Red Velvet Cake Batter CrazyShake at Black Tap is as much of a feast for the eyes as it is the palate, featuring a rim of chocolate candy and red M&Ms, topped with a mini two-tiered cake with red ombré rose frosting. The shake is playfully draped with a three-strand, 5.5-carat diamond bracelet from Bellusso Jewelers. (For those who may already have a 5.5-carat bracelet, a version of this CrazyShake is available sans the diamonds.)
