This year will mark Nobu Hotels’ 10th anniversary following the opening of Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in 2013. For almost 30 years the Nobu brand has been synonymous with modern luxury and instinctive design, a commitment to fine ingredients and incredible food, and an innate passion for service. Each of the existing 32 hotel destinations have been carefully selected based on the success of a Nobu restaurant, to reach 60 restaurants worldwide this year, creating a platform for locals and international travellers alike to create unforgettable memories around food. With the concept of Kokoro – the Japanese word for heartfelt – tying the portfolio together, Nobu has continued to maintain a strong family-feel over the last decade fuelling its continued expansion.

Providing not just a place to stay, but a place to live, 2023 will also welcome the brand’s first luxury residences in Toronto and Los Cabos, embodying the spirit of Nobu in both design and attitude. With six other residential projects in the pipeline, including Al Khobar, Danang, Abu Dhabi, Tulum, Orlando, and Punta Cana – Nobu is firmly positioning itself within the luxury lifestyle sphere by offering an exclusive curated experience for buyers. A place to relax in unpretentious luxury, while still feeling part of something special, the residences will provide purposeful design, elevated amenities including Nobu dining and room service for its residents and unparalleled access to the surrounding area through a dedicated team.

Slated to open in March, Nobu Residences Los Cabos will be home to 60 exclusive residences located next to the Nobu Hotel Los Cabos with impressive views of the neighbouring, championship golf course. With Nobu’s signature lifestyle and emblematic design, Nobu Residences offers a distinctive luxurious service, exclusive restaurants, and special amenities.

Further strengthening the partnership between Nobu Hospitality and Caesars Entertainment, the brand is delighted to be launching Nobu Hotel Atlantic City within Caesars Atlantic City as part of Caesars’ $400 million investment. The much-anticipated Nobu restaurant opened in November 2022 offering spectacular floor-to-ceiling window views of the Atlantic Ocean overlooking the famed Boardwalk.

Nobu Hotel Roma is expected to open in spring 2023. The exciting opening will transform the luxurious Grand Hotel into a stylish Nobu Hotel and Restaurant. Located in the historic heart of Rome, the hotel will house 116 guestrooms and suites, a spectacular green rooftop terrace, a full-service city spa, a Nobu restaurant offering 24-hour in-room dining, and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.
