Across the lobby from Bellagio‘s front desk is an opening through which a glass ceiling rises up 50 feet. This is the beautiful Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. 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.
Each season, the enormously talented horticulturalists and designers of 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 Bellagio‘s commitment to the earth.
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.
Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens 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.
