The re-design of the Sahara Hotel & Casino included a new porte-cochere, resort-style swimming pool complex, and an inviting tropical design for the street frontage along Las Vegas Boulevard.  Palms of various species were salvaged and relocated along Las Vegas Boulevard in natural groupings, in order to create a true desert oasis.  Tall date palms accentuate the decorative pool deck, re-creating the mystique of the Sahara Desert.  Water features that highlight the theme of the property in their design are mixed throughout the redeveloped areas.
