Story by Corinia Williams

Rising 34 stories tall with 1,200 luxury guestrooms and suites, the Mohegan Sun sets a new standard of excellence. This casino spa resort is at the top of the list for world travelers who crave excitement within luxurious surroundings. If you are looking for world-class excitement, shared with Hollywood luminaries and star athletes, and you are anxious to wake up all your senses, a visit to Mohegan Sun is in order. Located in picturesque Connecticut in the heart of scenic New England this casino resort is surrounded by rolling forested hills and features everything you would expect to find in the resorts of Las Vegas or Macau, including the stunning décor and fabulous impeccable service. Created in 1996, this world class gaming resort is more than a casino; it has become a true escape for the Jet Set and a world-class venue for first class entertainment events.

Pampering treatments at the Elemis Spa, and dining at a dizzying array of fine and casual restaurants are indulgences to enjoy. From the flavors of the Italian countryside, excellently presented at Todd English¹s Tuscany, to mouthwatering steaks at the acclaimed Michael Jordan Steak house, fine dining and romantic evenings are guaranteed. For a lively time and creative Key West cuisine guests, will enjoy the new Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. Guests can also enjoy an expansive fitness center and the family friendly 10,000 square foot solarium with an indoor/outdoor pool and whirlpool. In the summer months sunbathing and relaxing on the solariums adjoining 6000 square-foot deck is an unparalleled treat.

If you come for the gaming there is an abundance of choices to enjoy. Mohegan Sun is complete with over 300,000 square feet of gaming, including smoke-free areas and distinct casinos. The recently opened Casino of the Wind, a stunning addition to the resort, adds 64,000 square feet of new gaming areas and new dining venues. The Casino of the Wind brings 650 new slot machines, 28 new table games and a luxuriously appointed room dedicated entirely to Poker, complete with 42 tables. There are three entertainment venues including a 10,000-seat arena, a 300-seat cabaret theatre - the centrally located 350-seat Wolf Den where we had the pleasure to enjoy a rousing performance by Band From TV.

A 55-foot indoor waterfall greets visitors after they take the escalator from the lobby to the casino level and shopping emporium. Here, visitors find a virtual mall of fine and specialty shops including Coach, Tiffany and Co., Lush, Cache, Puma, and The Golf Shop, to name a few. Perched on the bank of the Thames River, amidst 240 pristine acres of natural countryside, Mohegan Sun is owned by the Mohegan Tribe and this premier gaming and entertainment venue is handsomely decorated to reflect the traditions and culture of the tribe. Mohegan Sun is easily accessible from Boston¹s Logan Airport or by Amtrak¹s New London station.
