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.

La Dolce Vita

As you enter the Garden through the East bed you will find yourself embraced under an awe inspiring canopy of Lemon tree Branches carefully recreated to be reminiscent of Da Paolino “the Lemon Tree Restaurant on the isle of Capri. A beautiful replica of The Palazzo Pubblico, the Sienese Town Hall, stands majestically in rear of the bed as brightly colored flags representing the various Contrade, the individual villages that make up the magical city of Siena, hang gracefully overhead. In the West Garden, three Murano-inspired crystal chandeliers cast a warm glow over a 22-foot vine-covered fountain, an homage to the Fontana dell’Ovato in Villa d’Este, a 16th century residence in Tivoli. 

Nearby in the South Garden, passersby find themselves part of a powerful re-enactment of The Palio, Siena’s twice-yearly horserace. During this important cultural event, 10 horses with riders from the various Sienese Contrade, also known as city districts, challenge each other in a passionate race that circles the Piazza del Campo.

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.
