The Conservatory - Bellagio’s Opus

Each season, the enormously talented Horticulture and Engineering teams transform the 14,000-square-foot Botanical Garden 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.

Flights of Fancy

Celebrating the exquisite beauty and technology of flight, Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens unveils an “elevated” spring display titled, “Flights of Fancy,” now through May 14. Featuring various forms of flight from fanciful hot air balloons to hummingbirds and butterflies, all beds will showcase a spring palette of purples, pinks, yellows and blues.

A collaborative effort between designer Ed Libby and the talented Bellagio horticulture and engineering teams, the spring display features the most variety of plants and floral ever used in the Conservatory. Ensuring guests are fully immersed in the season, the team added distinct new touches such as theatrical lighting for each bed, a song playlist as whimsical as the display and a custom “Lavender Woods” scent that will infuse the air with soft floral notes.

“The spring exhibit features fanciful flying creatures and a festival of balloons outfitted in high-fashion colors inspired by the 2022 runways,” said Libby. “The focal point in each bed are hot air balloons which symbolize freedom and independence, and the variety and beauty of each balloon and bed will entice guests to take a walk through the clouds and capture all of the picture perfect details throughout the display.”

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.
