It provides a full-service spa, 4 large pools and a hot tub. The resort is flanked by the Mandalay Bay to the south and by the Excalibur to the north; all three are connected by free express and local trams. All three properties were built by Circus Circus Enterprises, which in 1999 became Mandalay Resort Group, which was then succeeded by MGM Mirage in April 2005 (now named MGM Resorts International).

The hotel also began hosting in 2009 Bodies: The Exhibition, an educational display on the human body, and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition replacing their three story arcade. From 2000 to 2005, the Luxor Theatre was the home of the performance-art show Blue Man Group, which then moved to the Venetian Las Vegas. Blue Man Group returned to the Luxor Theatre starting November 18, 2015.
Inside the pyramid there was an IMAX-Cinema, operating from 1996 to 2008. At time of the opening it was one out of 20 IMAX screens.
On August 31, 2007, LAX Nightclub officially opened at a party hosted by Britney Spears. A number of other celebrities, including Christina Aguilera, have also hosted events at the club. The two-level, 26,000 sq ft (2,400 m2) venue contains 78 VIP tables and Noir Bar, which according to the Las Vegas Review Journal is an ultra-elite bar that is a reservations-only establishment. Additional nightlife destinations within Luxor include CatHouse, Aurora, Liquidity, and Flight.
At 42.3 billion candela, the Luxor Sky Beam is the strongest beam of light in the world, using computer-designed, curved mirrors to collect the light from 39 xenon lamps and focus them into one intense, narrow beam. On a clear night, the Sky Beam is visible up to 275 miles (443 km) away by aircraft at cruising altitude, such as over Los Angeles.
Each of the 39 lamps is a 7,000 watt Xenotech fixture costing about $1,200. When at full power, the system costs $51 an hour to operate, with $20 per hour of that just for its 315,000 watts of electricity. The beam has operated reliably since first enabled on October 15, 1993, and is an FAA designated navigational landmark for aviators.
The lamp room is about 50 feet (15 m) below the top of the building and serviced by a staff of two workers during the day. The room's temperature is about 300 °F (149 °C) while the lights are operating. Since 2008, only half the lamps are lit as a cost and energy saving measure. The light might be the world's best bug attractor, establishing a new ecosystem of moths, bats, and owls.
Please note: Per Luxor policy, please ensure the original credit card used at the time of booking is presented during check-in.
