The world’s first Nobu Hotel will grace the Las Vegas Strip later this fall. Founded by Nobu Hospitality, whose partners include Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, Meir Teper and David Rockwell, the Japanese-inspired Nobu Hotel will encompass 181 guest rooms on the Caesar’s Palace property.
Recently, Nobu Hospitality revealed a first look of the hotel’s design and announced that bookings at the much-anticipated hotel will begin on October 1.
This, Nobu’s first hotel project, leads the way as the first celebrity-chef branded hotel venture and has been designed to serve as an extension of the energetic Nobu lifestyle. The materials employed, from wood tiles, patterned carpets, cherry blossoms and Zen gardens, will exude sleek appeal punctuated by custom origami-inspired fixtures.
“We have created a distinctly Japanese experience in the heart of Las Vegas with the first Nobu Hotel, but with a playful interpretation of Nobu’s style and the Vegas bravado,” said Rockwell, founder and CEO of Rockwell Group. “Using the grand canvas of a hotel, we were able to elaborate on the use of hand-crafted, curated materials that create a luxurious effect and provide a world-class Nobu experience.”
And what an experience it will be . . .
The arrival experience will include personalized service with in-room iPad registration and a traditional hot tea welcome amenity. Custom-made Simmons mattresses will be adorned with luxurious, 100 percent Egyptian cotton Anichini percale linens and ultra-soft Down Dreams pillows. The unique turndown service will include his and hers yukata robes and slippers displayed bedside along with an exclusive Nobu Hotel blend of scented sleep oils. An upgraded minibar curated by Nobu will consist of unique selections including organic Wild Poppy blood orange chili juice crafted from orchards in California, chocolate-dipped Pocky pretzels, Japanese beer and an assortment of Dean & Deluca snack items. Nobu’s signature brands of chilled sake and Genmai-Cha brown rice green tea will also be available.
In addition to exclusive accommodations, Nobu Hotel guests will also have private access to the adjacent 11,200-square-foot restaurant and lounge with priority seating and 24-hour access to Nobu cuisine through the first-ever in-room dining menu. The highly anticipated menu will include popular Japanese items, along with Nobu’s signature twists on American classics. A selection of bento boxes will offer a customary Japanese breakfast and the Vegas-themed High Roller which features lobster wasabi, Wagyu steak, spicy garlic shrimp and an assortment of nigiri and premium sushi rolls.
“For Nobu Hotel’s in-room dining menu I have crafted some of my signature selections paired with some new additions to cater to the Vegas market,” said Nobu. “My passion and creativity is communicated into every dish and I look forward to further raising the bar with my newest restaurant and hotel venture.”
