Mandalay Bay Redefining Resort
with Property-Wide Transformation

Mandalay Bay
Resort and Casino, the destination that first brought a comprehensive
resort experience to the Las Vegas Strip, is partnering with some of the
leading brands in hospitality to redefine the resort experience with a
property-wide transformation. The 120-acre resort is collaborating with
brands such as Morgans Hotel Group to introduce Delano, Cirque du Soleil
and The Light Group to refocus the spotlight on the property where guests
shed the tourist mantel and envelop themselves in the "Resortist"
experience. Mandalay Bay's transformation began in early 2013 with the
guest room renovation of the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas and the opening
of Citizens Kitchen & Bar. During the next 10 months Mandalay Bay will
introduce new amenities including restaurants, a visionary nightclub
experience, a dynamic dayclub, a new show from Cirque du Soleil centered
around the King of Pop, Michael Jackson and Delano Las Vegas, a new
all-suite boutique hotel within the resort. For more information visit:
