US company Las Vegas Sands is due, on 28 August, to open its third hotel in Macau, this time managed by the Four Seasons chain and which will include a retail area and a casino.
The new casino, which is opening a year after The Venetian, will have around 170 gaming tables and 210 slot machines as well as an entrance separate from both the hotel and the retail area.
The hotel will have 360 rooms, five restaurants, two bars and a spa, whilst the retail area, which is already in operation, has some 180 stores of various internationally renowned retail chains.
As well as the Four Seasons, Las Vegas Sands, which in Macau operates the world’s two largest casinos – The Venetian and the Sands – over the next few years is scheduled to open more integrated hotel, gaming and retail areas including chains such as the Sheraton.
In 20009 it is also due to open the City of Dreams complex, in consortium with Melco, owned by Lawrence Ho, son of Macau gaming magnate Stanley Ho, and Australian PBL, owned by James Packer, and Arco de Triunfo, which is a firm included in Stanley Ho’s Sociedade de Jogos de Macau empire. Macau currently has 30 casinos.
