A new suite designed by modern artist Damien Hirst has been unveiled by Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas priced at $200,000 for a two-night stay.
The resort, which is currently undergoing a $690 million renovation, has created the two-storey Empathy Suite featuring six of Hirst’s artworks, including Winner/Loser, which sees two bull sharks suspended in formaldehyde in a tank.
The two-bedroom, 840sqm suite also features a pool and outdoor terrace overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, as well as furniture and textiles using some of Hirst’s signature designs and motifs, including a medicine cabinet filled with diamonds.
There is also a 13-seat bar and two lounge areas, accommodating up to 52 guests, all featuring Hirst-designed furniture and furnishings.
Other facilities include a private healing salt room, two massage rooms and a fitness room. Guests also receive 24-hour butler service and a chauffeur car service during their stay.
The Empathy Suite joins the resort’s other five Sky Villas, all of which have been designed by Bentel & Bentel Architects.
“They have allowed me to create a suite in the hotel and design everything and completely fill it with my art,” said Hirst.
Jon Gray, general manager of Palms Casino Resort, added: “The Empathy Suite designed by Damien Hirst is the pinnacle of luxury combining museum-worthy art and a truly legendary hospitality experience.”
