Sebuah megaresor adalah suatu jenis resor tujuan yang dengan ukurannya yang besar, kadang-kadang memiliki atraksi berskala besar (kasino, lapangan golf, taman tema, akomodasi lainnya). Hotel di sepanjang Las Vegas Strip adalah contoh megaresor yang memiliki ukuran dan kerumitan yang besar.

Dua proyek Las Vegas, Nevada tahun 1969 dan 1973[1][2][3] oleh arsitek Martin Stern, Jr. dan pengusaha Kirk Kerkorian, International Hotel (kemudian Las Vegas Hilton) dan MGM Grand Hotel and Casino (kemudian Bally's Las Vegas), menetapkan standar untuk resor kasino sejenis itu.

Setelah International dan MGM Grand, megaresor pertama yang diakui[rujukan?] adalah The Mirage karena ukurannya dan tidak terbatasnya pilihan hiburan non-judi seperti perbelanjaan dan restoran untuk menarik pelanggan. Megaresor menggunakan tema fantastik atau mitos (kehidupan abad pertengahan di Excalibur, tropis di The Mirage, kota terkenal, dll.) pada propertinya.

Banyak megaresor memiliki taman tema sebagai bagian tengahnya. Resor seperti Walt Disney Parks and Resorts memiliki berbagai hotel, taman tema, komplek perbelanjaan dan lainnya. Megaresor lain tanpa bagian tengah seperti itu, memiliki fitur yang dianggap unik, seperti Atlantis Paradise Island dan taman kembarannya di Dubai.

"Two Martin Stern-designed and Kirk Kerkorian-built casinos, the International (later Las Vegas Hilton) and MGM Grand (later Bally's) had just raised the bar in casino/hotel design. Whereas previous casinos had featured modest, low-slung motel wings or mid-rise hotel extensions, these two structures opened with over 2000 rooms and suites located in mammoth hotel towers. These two projects boasted virtually every feature of what is today canonical casino resort construction: a single complex combining casino, dining, and entertainment facilities with a massive hotel." 
  2. ^ ""Remembering Martin Stern, Jr.: Architect of the Modern Casino Resort"" (html). University of Nevada, Las Vegas Center for Gaming Research. "Stern’s most enduring contribution to the Strip was his trailblazing fusion of convention hotel, casino space, and retail, seen first in 1969 in Kirk Kerkorian’s International (now the Las Vegas Hilton) and then in his original MGM Grand (now Bally's Las Vegas), which opened in 1973. These behemoths integrated high-rise hotel towers, parking garages, convention space, gaming, entertainment, and shopping for the first time. These structurally-integrated designs supplanted the patchwork of older Strip casinos, which had grown by adding a showroom here or a hotel tower there. And the International pioneered the tri-form, y-shaped design that has become a Strip trademark. The freshly-minted mega-resorts of the 1990s, from The Mirage to Paris, all used Stern’s basic ideas of casino design."

The monolithic building, larger than in size than the Empire State Building, had over 300 miles of draperies, 2,300 television sets, and enough heating and cooling capacity to serve 8,000 homes."
