LAS VEGAS, Dec 18, 2008 -- Wynn Resorts (Nasdaq: WYNN) continues to set new standards for pre-eminent luxury in Las Vegas with the premiere of Encore, the new signature resort in the Wynn collection. The resort opens its doors on December 22, 2008 at 8 p.m.

Located next door to flagship property Wynn Las Vegas, Encore is a distinct destination with its own repertoire of accommodations, culinary offerings and leisure activities. Central to Encore's fanciful and intimate atmosphere are sunlit corridors with flowering atria and sprawling pools visible from throughout the property. Natural light floods the resort to reveal vibrant butterflies, signature mosaics, textured environments and elegant detailing.

The 2,034 suites offer the luxury of space in a comfortable, residential setting. They feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows, advanced technologies and timeless design. Encore's five restaurants showcase award-winning chefs in residence and present cuisines from around the world in exciting, dramatic environments. Seven cozy bars and lounges set the stage for the nightlife which culminates with XS, Victor Drai's new club concept, where poolside ambiance mingles with the decadent vibe of the nightclub. The Encore Esplanade features clothing, shoe, jewelry, home decor and accessory stores and spans from classic Hermes to the edgy new Rock & Republic. The full-service Spa and Salon provides tranquility and opulent comfort and includes an organic juice bar and two new movement studios.
