From decadent nightclubs to Asian-themed casino hotels, here's a look at what's new on the Las Vegas hotel scene for 2016.

The W is opening its first Las Vegas property — on the site that SLS Lux Tower hotel used to occupy. It will feature a W Living Room, a spa, an outdoor swimming pool and bar area called WET, a gym, and meeting space.

This is W’s second attempt to bring the project into fruition; in 2007, it had to abandon plans to develop the site after failing to find a partner.

Things are back on track, and the hotel is now slated to open at the end of 2016.

The property will have 206 rooms and a spa inspired by ‘China’s rich ancient culture’.

The complex will also comprise several Chinese restaurants, from authentic tea cafes to gourmet dim sum eateries, and a casino space focused on Asian games such as Pai Gow, Fan Tan and Sic Bo. The latter will also feature Feng Shui-designed private gaming parlours.

This legendary Las Vegas hotel has celebrated its 50th birthday by splashing out $75 million to revamp its Roman Tower hotel wing for 2016.

The freshly-renovated Julius Tower started taking bookings on 1 January. The 587 freshly overhauled rooms have been brought to life with heavy daubs of freesia yellow and Aegean blue.

Mirror-panelled headboards framed in bronze and hand-drawn pictures of showgirl outfits add extra pizzazz. The bathrooms also feature floating double sinks and slick-looking stone showers.
