LAS VEGAS—Las Vegas has a knack for doing things in a big, dramatic fashion and that was certainly the case when it came to the delivery of the final piece of the world’s first Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace. The boutique hotel received a Japanese-inspired onsen tub via helicopter for installation on the terrace of the 10,300 square feet villa, which is set to debut soon.
The final element needed for completion of Nobu Hospitality partners Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro’s first-ever Nobu Hotel, the tub made its way from Italy and has already traveled by sea and by land to Las Vegas for installation by helicopter airlift on the terrace of the Nobu Villa. The custom-made tub features adjustable hydro massage positions and can be used either as a hot tub or a mini plunge pool.
In addition to the five-person Zucchetti KOS mini pool, the Nobu Villa’s outdoor space offers a 4,700-square-foot terrace overlooking the center of the Las Vegas Strip with sweeping views, a robatayaki grill, and a Zen garden.
Available as part of the new Anthology Suites collection, the multi-functional space can also be used as a venue for special events for 60 to 120 people.
Designed by Rockwell Group, the three-bedroom Nobu Villa has soaring ceilings inspired by the traditional art, architecture, and design of Japan. Rockwell Group layered materials and architectural elements, including rich fabrics, warm wood, bronze finishes, and custom artwork throughout the space that captures and celebrates the Nobu lifestyle. Additional features include a signature omakase sushi bar, a media and game room, a gym and massage room, a private elevator, and an art gallery.
