The Mirage Fact Sheet

The Mirage To Offer Dynamic New Room Designs

The Mirage Introduces New Volcano To The Las Vegas Strip

The Mirage, the hotel that introduced the concept of destination resort to the Las Vegas Strip in 1989, has undergone a stunning transformation to maintain its preeminent position in what has become an increasingly competitive tourism market. While introducing contemporary amenities designed to recapture the resort’s leading-edge position, The Mirage has maintained the exceptional service standards and serene tropical atmosphere that have distinguished it as a AAA Four Diamond Polynesian paradise.

The Volcano

From Las Vegas Boulevard – "The Strip" – or from the walkways leading to the resort, visitors are immersed in a tropical paradise as they follow the palm-tree-lined drive leading to the doors of The Mirage. Spanning the front of the resort is a tranquil lagoon, home of The Volcano, the renowned icon of The Mirage since its opening in 1989. Having undergone a complete overhaul in 2008, the redesigned Volcano offers an all-new audio/visual spectacle with never-before-seen fire effects. An exclusive percussive soundtrack written and performed by Grateful Dead drummer and Grammy-award winning artist Mickey Hart and his partner, International superstar Zakir Hussain, punctuates the fiery eruption. Audiences will be wowed by this exhilarating signature attraction, the crowning jewel in the property’s transformation and a wonderful prologue to all of the energy and excitement the new Mirage offers.

Tropical Atrium

Once inside The Mirage, guests feel as if they're in paradise, instantly surrounded by the extraordinary visual experience of a lush and verdant indoor atrium. Palm trees tower 60 feet above waterfalls and pools, which meander through a forest of rich tropical flora including banana trees, elephant ears and tropical orchids. Woven into the towering palms and waterscape of cascading falls is an artist's palette of beautifully colored, delicately arranged tropical flowers covered in natural sunlight and nourished by a computerized misting system.

Already one of the most elaborate and technically advanced in the world, The Mirage aquarium recently underwent a transformation. New, brighter artificial corals evoke the exotic beauty of such tropical locales as Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, while the addition of hundreds of new sea creatures provides a rare glimpse into the aquatic wonders of our planet. Top aquarium design experts, noted for their work at such distinguished facilities as California’s

Monterey Bay Aquarium and The National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD, collaborated to enhance the display. The aquarium’s filtration and life support systems also were replaced improving visibility and monitoring. Nearly 1,000 marine life forms now comprise a thriving undersea community housed within the 20,000-gallon display behind the front desk.
