Bellagio’s Arcadia

Each season, the enormously talented horticulturalists and designers who make up the Bellagio Conservatory team transform this 14,000-square-foot floral playground into a showcase of the distinctive sights and colors of spring, summer, fall and winter—along with a special display for Chinese New Year. When the seasons turn and the displays rotate, 90 percent of the trees, flowers and plants in the conservatory are recycled, to further celebrate our commitment to the earth.

Year of the Pig

We are excited to present the 2019 Chinese New Year, Year of the Pig display. Beginning at the South Bed, this is a representation of the grounds at the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees. The main feature of the temple grounds is the flower pagoda, closely guarded by two Chinese Fu Dogs. Chinese Fu Dogs are a feng shui protection symbol. Moving on to the East Bed, you will see a grand pavilion composed of simulated jade adorned with gilded accents. The precious stone symbolizes six virtues in Asian culture: Benevolence. Righteousness. Wisdom. Bravery. Honesty. Cleanliness. The North Bed features a replica of the Golden Lotus Statue of Macau in celebration of their 20th year of independence. On either side of the statue stands Chinese lions representing strength and stability. Lastly, the West Bed represents the Year of the Pig. Eight piglets surround a mother and father pig, a lucky number for this year. Two majestic cherry blossom trees flank the bed. The cherry blossom flower is associated with female beauty, power and strength. We hope you enjoy 2019 Chinese New Year, Year of the Pig.

Breathtaking & Brilliant

Across the lobby from the front desk is an opening through which a glass ceiling rises up 50 feet. This is the beautiful Conservatory. The ceiling framework and beams are the sculpted green metal of oxidized copper, called verdigris, set in floral patterns.

The Conservatory & Botanical Gardens’ pathways lead to MICHAEL MINA Bellagio, a wonderful gourmet seafood restaurant; Giardini Garden Store, a shop displaying garden-oriented gifts, fountains and decorative items for the home; Spa & Salon Bellagio; and Via Fiore (“flower way”), the promenade which leads to the Spa Tower.

A horticulture staff of 120 maintains the Botanical Gardens and the entire grounds of Bellagio. The staff has the ability to achieve seasonal designs by selecting flowers that complement the trees, gazebos, bridges and ponds,and can add or remove water features to enhance the seasonal effect. 

The Conservatory season starts with Chinese New Year and features traditional designs of the celebration. Spring brings cherry blossoms, while the summer offers flora equally as fragrant. Orange and yellow, brown and gold are used to match the fall foliage. Following Thanksgiving weekend, the gardens are transformed for the Christmas season. Bellagio’s holiday display is one of extraordinary beauty. The wonderful fragrances and magnificent colors of the seasons take over the entire arrival experience. This ever-changing natural display is the single most significant component of Bellagio’s design, fulfilling the promise of creating the most extraordinary hotel in the world.
