The Conservatory - Bellagio’s Opus

Each season, the enormously talented Horticulture and Engineering teams transform the 14,000-square-foot Botanical Gardens into a showcase of inspiring sights, sounds, scents and colors. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter are all featured—along with a special display for Lunar New Year. When the seasons change so do the displays. The talented Conservatory team changes out the design and also replants and repurposes as much of the living plant material as possible, further celebrating Mother Nature and our commitment to sustainability.

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 the Lunar 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.

Gingerbread Dreams, A Holiday Confection

Designed by Ed Libby, in collaboration with Bellagio’s Horticulture and Pastry team, this year’s theme was inspired by a simple time as guests are transported back to their childhood with whimsical moments and larger-than-life holiday treats.

A majestic 42-foot-tall fresh-cut white fir tree decorated with 10,000 twinkling lights and 8,700 sparkling red, gold, silver and white ornaments is the centerpiece of the Conservatory. Three giant stunning bejeweled eggs nestle a five-foot-tall that was handcrafted by the Bellagio Pastry team. Guests can also walk through the charming life-sized gingerbread-style cottage, enjoy an elf gingerbread making scene, and spot the playful family of Coca-Cola® polar bears.

Open now through January 1, experience the holiday spirit with elegant and stunning ornaments accompanied by soothing holiday music and a specially created scent throughout the display.
