Bringing the Beach to Las Vegas: Crystal Lagoons has big plans
Las Vegas seems to do everything in a big way. Nothing is to over-the-top or impossible. So, why not create a beach and a lagoon on the Strip?
Miami-based Crystal Lagoons has teamed up with Steve Wynn, the luxury resort developer responsible for the expansion of the Las Vegas Strip,
to reinvent the iconic destination once more, setting a new record for the largest Crystal Lagoon in the U.S.
A 38-acre Crystal Lagoon will be the centerpiece of the development that will feature 260,000 square feet of premium meetings and convention space, a 1,000-room hotel tower, a small casino and extensive
dining and nightlife. The elaborate water attraction will include both daytime and nighttime entertainment elements. At night, the space will transform with an elaborate fireworks display that is launched
from the 120 ft. center island and surrounding areas. The expansion will be constructed on approximately 130 acres of real estate that currently houses the Wynn Golf Club. The project remains subject to
the approval of Wynn's board.
The man-made lagoon with crystal-clear waters and white-sand beaches will be the size of more than 30 football fields and close to the size of almost 100 Olympic-size swimming pools. The new Crystal Lagoon will
change the Las Vegas lifestyle with by making water sports readily available, such as stand-up paddle-boarding, wind-surfing, sailing, swimming and more. With this new beachfront destination, guests will enjoy beach
life and the outdoor activities that Las Vegas was missing before.
Environmentally Sustainable Technology
Globally patented in 160 countries, Crystal Lagoons was honored with a patent protection by the highly selective Fast-Track Program for Green Technologies from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This coveted honor
only considered technologies representing an advance in environmental sustainability (out of more than 1,500 applicants at the time, only Crystal Lagoons was approved).
A Crystal Lagoon uses 30 times less water than a typical 18-hole golf course and 50 percent less water than a park of the same size. Crystal Lagoons technology uses disinfection pulses that use up to 100 times less
chemicals than swimming pools and an ultrasonic filtration system that uses up to 50 times less energy than conventional filtration systems. Plus, Crystal Lagoons can use almost any type of water including, fresh,
salt, brackish, well water and more.
In addition to recreational uses, Crystal Lagoons technology also has industrial applications including the sustainable cooling of thermal power and industrial plants and water desalination and purification. The company is working to solve
the world shortage of potable fresh water through its experimental desalination technology project already underway in Chile.
