Golden Nugget : Biloxi, Mississippi
The Golden Nugget Biloxi is a Mississippi Gulf Coast Casino Resort located on Beach Blvd. at the eastern end of Biloxi. The building overlooks the Gulf of Mexico with a marina (pictured below) directly adjacent, so the location is both beautiful and convenient. Last month, the Golden Nugget Biloxi served as our home base while we were in town for Cruisin the Coast. The property was formerly the Isle of Capri and underwent a $100 million face-lift before re-opening as the Golden Nugget last spring. As such, it’s one of the newer and nicer resort hotels in Biloxi.
The Golden Nugget Biloxi boasts 700 rooms of varying sizes, all of which feature a luxurious brown and beige color scheme. While the rooms are noticeably updated with a modern and masculine style, there are still some signs of an older facility undergoing renovation. In particular when you step into the bathroom, out onto the balcony, or try to charge your various devices, it becomes apparent that the facility was originally opened in 1992.
Of course when you stay at a casino resort, they’re hoping you don’t spend too much time in your room. The Golden Nugget Biloxi boasts an expanded casino floor with over 1,200 slot machines, 54 tables games, and a high-limit gaming area. Like most casinos, unfortunately the gaming floor is full of smoke but there did appear to be some ventilation attempting to alleviate the problem.
One of the highlights of the Golden Nugget property is certainly the gorgeous heated H20 Pool and Bar. As you can see, the facility was under utilized when we stopped to photograph it, but we imagine this is a popular spot for much of the year. H20 features a hot tub, 270 lounges, 16 day beds, 12 cabanas, restaurant, swim-up bar, five outdoor blackjack games and two fire pits.
The Golden Nugget Biloxi is also home to a luxurious spa and salon, live entertainment, new bars and lounge, and boutique shopping. Dining options include Morton’s The Steakhouse, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, Michael Patrick’s, and Lillie’s Asian Cuisine Noodles & Sushi.
We enjoyed our stay at the Golden Nugget Biloxi during Cruisin the Coast 2015 and recommend you try it for your next trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where there are fabulous events being held year round.
