If you think Las Vegas isn't for you because you don't smoke or gamble, the Vegas tides will soon be turned in your favour.

Majestic, a non-gaming and non-smoking hotel in Las Vegas, will begin construction in July. If all goes well, the hotel will be completed in 2024 and will sit across the way from the Las Vegas Convention Centre andBoring Company's highly anticipated tunnel.

Instead of gaming areas, the hotel will feature a robust fitness, wellness, and medical spa, as well as a collection of restaurants surrounding a courtyard.

According to the hotel's website, Majestic's health-focused concept will be the "first of its kind."

According to a news release from August 2019, the $US850 million, 620-foot tall building will sit on six acres of land that the now-defunct Clarion Hotel once sat on.

Doumani initially purchased the Clarion Hotel for $US22.5 million, the Las Vegas Sun reported, and the former hotel was officially demolished in 2015.

In the ashes of the old hotel rose the works of a new, wellness and corporate focused hotel.

For those who may carry residual fears about travelling due to COVID-19, Doumani says the hotel is, by its design, a "health environment."

Unlike other Las Vegas hotels that pack people, including smokers, into enclosed casinos, Majestic has plenty of outdoor leisure space.

These outdoor spaces include the piazza, which will house the hotel's restaurant offerings.

But overall, the hotel's target customer base will be "super discerning business and health-oriented travellers that don't want to be among the masses."

Despite the contemporary look of the hotel, the early days of Las Vegas served as the inspiration behind the project, according to Doumani.

Doumani, who grew up in Las Vegas, found that the city was becoming more corporate and less intimate, especially as "mega-resorts" started popping up.

At that point, Las Vegas "became all about numbers" in an attempt to keep these large hotels full of guests, according to Doumani.

"No VIP treatment unless you were a high roller," Doumani wrote. "Everyone was just a number, no personalised service."

According to Doumani, the new hotel will pay homage to "early, intimate Las Vegas."

"There are lots of spectacular mega-resort casinos in Las Vegas," Doumani wrote. "But until now, there has never been a five-star space where everyone is treated like a high roller."
