About: Opened in 1999, Mandalay Bay is a lush, tropical resort with a Balinese theme. As guests enter from the Las Vegas Strip, intricately carved stone statues silently welcome them to the Valley of the Waterfalls where spectacular fire pots, cascading waterfalls, mythical architecture and verdant landscaping set the stage for discoveries of treasures yet to come. Throughout the 60-acre property, thousands of palm trees create the sense of a sheltering oasis. The feeling of a vibrant paradise continues in the hotel’s registration lobby where visitors find a 14-foot-high, salt-water aquarium reminiscent of the beautiful coral reefs of the South Pacific. The impressive 12,200-gallon exhibit is filled with dozens of aquatic species including eight types of Angelfish.
