Peter On Permanent Display at Mandalay Bay Check-In


If you've had the pleasure of staying at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, you've likely been captivated at first sight by the stunning landscape photography of Peter Lik, prominently featured in the hotel's check-in area. This artistic installation, comprising of four breathtaking photographic prints, each ranging in size from a grand 13 feet to an imposing 22 feet in width and reaching up to 7.5 feet in height, creates an unforgettable welcome for guests. Each day, as visitors arrive to check into one of the more than 3,000 luxurious rooms, they are greeted by these visual masterpieces, setting the tone for a stay surrounded by beauty and elegance.


Peter Lik, the visionary behind these images, describes the display as "epic." His enthusiasm for the project is palpable, especially as he discusses the ongoing process of updating and rotating these images to reflect the changing seasons. This thoughtful curation not only keeps the visual experience fresh for repeat visitors but also ensures that the dynamic and energetic spirit of Mandalay Bay is continuously enhanced and invigorated. "The decision to integrate my work so seamlessly into the fabric of the hotel, particularly following its significant renovation and redesign, is an honor," Lik remarked. "It's incredibly rewarding to see my photographs become a cornerstone of the hotel's identity, contributing to the dynamic energy that flows through the property."

The Beauty of Mother Nature

Peter's aspiration for his work extends beyond mere decoration. He hopes that his photographs act as a portal to the natural world, bringing the breathtaking beauty of Mother Nature closer to those who encounter his work. Through his lens, guests are invited on a visual journey that celebrates the splendor and majesty of the landscapes that surround us, enriching their stay with moments of reflection and connection to the earth.

In this era of rapid digital consumption, where nature is often experienced through screens, Peter Lik's photography at Mandalay Bay offers a moment of pause, a breath of fresh air, and a reminder of the world's natural wonders that await beyond the neon lights of Las Vegas. It's an immersive experience that Mandalay Bay guests are unlikely to forget, enhancing their Las Vegas adventure with a touch of natural beauty and serenity.

The VIP Treatment

In addition to the striking visual introduction provided in the hotel's check-in area, Mandalay Bay has further embraced the captivating allure of Peter Lik's landscape photography by extending its display to encompass the exclusive VIP rooms and the walkways leading to Mandalay's own shopping haven, The Shoppes at Mandalay Place. This strategic placement of additional epic pieces from Peter Lik not only enhances the aesthetic continuity throughout the property but also elevates the guest experience to new heights of luxury and immersion in natural beauty.

Elegance is Timeless

The decision to integrate Lik's work into these additional spaces reflects a thoughtful approach to interior design, one that prioritizes the creation of a cohesive and serene atmosphere that complements the dynamic energy of Las Vegas. For VIP guests, the inclusion of these pieces in their exclusive quarters adds a layer of personalized luxury, transforming their stay into an experience that is as enriching and soul-stirring as it is comfortable.

Moreover, the presence of Lik's photography along the walkways to the The Shoppes at Mandalay Place introduces an element of surprise and delight, turning what could be a simple transit space into a gallery-worthy exhibit. This not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the property but also invites guests to pause and appreciate the beauty of the world around them, making their journey from one destination to another within the resort an experience in itself.
