A luxury casino-resort outside Las Vegas
414 Rooms / 81 Suites
Those looking for a pleasant respite from the frenetic pace of Sin City should head out east from the epicenter of Las Vegas into the quaint suburb of Henderson and check in to Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa and Casino. The suburban resort recently completed a $20 million renovation, adding new restaurants as well as hotel lobby and guest room enhancements.
The welcoming Tuscan-inspired property is divided into both casino and hotel sides, so you can decide exactly what kind of experience you want to have. Inside find a multiplex movie theater, numerous restaurants ranging from fine dining to poolside dining, a lavish spa and countless other entertainment options, such as a Kids Quest fun zone.
Outside, discover the adjacent District at Green Valley Ranch shopping esplanade with many enticing stores and eateries. It also hosts regular events like movies under the stars and a summer concert series for some laid-back fun in the desert sun.

Things to Know
• For three years, the casino of the Henderson hotel was the star of its own reality show, American Casino, which followed executives around the property and gave a glimpse behind the scenes.
• There is a new lobby bar facing the pool that becomes a lively center of resort action every afternoon and evening.
• The lobby also features a coffee bar as well as a newly added VIP services center that acts as your personal concierge service to explore the beauty and excitement of Las Vegas.
• Wind down with the resort’s adults-only Silent Savasana class. Participants in the unique monthly yoga class don special headphones that play soothing music and recite instruction for a deeply personal (and quiet) session.

• Bathrooms are ornately tiled and spacious, featuring a roomy garden tub with a separate shower, lighted vanity mirror and plush cotton robes perfect for lounging around.
• Most accommodations face the lush pool oasis, decorated with palm trees, a vineyard and a sandy beach. Others face the Strip with a view of the skyline in the distance.

• The newest addition to the dining scene at the luxury hotel is Bottiglia Cucina & Enoteca.

• Get a true taste of a California original at Pizza Rock, an eatery from 11-time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani. The crown jewel here is the wood-fired, brick-oven-made margherita pizza — only 73 are made per day. The charred crust is a delectable vessel for San Marzano tomato sauce, Fior di Latte mozzarella, fresh basil and sea salt.
