Castaways was a hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The property had originally been San Souci Auto Court, an early motel which opened in the 1930s, and developed into Sans Souci Hotel in the 1950s.
The resort operated until July 1987, when it closed and was demolished and the property was purchased by Steve Wynn. Wynn then proceeded with his plans to develop a new resort on the Castaways' former grounds using the working name Golden Nugget on the Strip.
The resort became Mirage and opened on November 22, 1989.
Gateway to Luck
A historic wooden temple St. Louis Jain temple, originally a part of the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, stood besides the pool. It has now been reconstructed at the Jain Center of Southern California, Los Angeles.
