Sands China, the Macanese subsidiary of Las Vegas Sands, has confirmed that its new French-themed integrated resort, the Parisian Macao, will open its doors on 13 September 2016.
The new project, which is located next to the Studio City resort on Macau’s Cotai Strip, has been developed with an investment of approximately US$2.5 billion. Its most recognisable feature is a replica of the Eiffel Tower, which is positioned at the front of the complex.
“Our goal to create a large-scale leisure and business destination in Macau, which started with the opening of the Venetian Macao nearly 10 years ago, will be fully realised when the Parisian opens its doors in a matter of weeks,” said Las Vegas Sands’ chairman & CEO, Sheldon Adelson.
“It’s unlikely another tourism development with the size and scope of the Cotai Strip will ever be achieved again. I am grateful for the hard work and determination of the countless people involved in this amazing development and the unwavering support of the people and government of Macau. Together, we have truly made history.”
As well as its half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, which will be overlooked by more than a third of the complex’s 3,000 rooms and suites, the Parisian Macao features a large casino with 450 table games and 2,500 slot machines, a 1,200-seat theatre, spa and fitness facilities, an outdoor pool and water park, extensive conference and banqueting space, and a large shopping mall which Las Vegas Sands says will be “reminiscent of Paris’ famed Champs Elysees”.
The completion of the Parisian Macao brings Sands China’s total investment in Macau to more than US$13bn.
