The bright lights of Vegas have long been one of the biggest draws in the world for gamblers looking for a luxurious gaming experience – but as blackjack, poker and the like become increasingly popular across the globe, Sin City is no longer the be-all and end-all for high rollers it once was.

In fact, in recent years, the special Chinese administrative region of Macao has eclipsed the original casino hot spot in terms of annual revenue, attracting the world’s wealthy thanks to its ritzy, glitzy casino resorts and lavish hotels. Signalling the beginning of a new era for gambling and putting Asia on the map as one of the hottest continents for big players in 2022 and beyond, suffice it to say that exciting times are afoot for the jet-setting high-rollers of the world.

Despite having previously been known for its rigorous laws that prevented gambling and casino operation entirely in much of Asia, we’ve seen countries like Malaysia, Cambodia and Japan finally make the move to relax the rules, pressing the starting gun on a number of new and exciting projects globally that are set to create the most thrilling luxury casino scene we’ve ever seen.

Here, we take a look at some of the classiest hotel casinos to visit in Asia in 2022, as reviewed by

Famed for its breath-taking skyline and all-round opulent appeal, Singapore is a city – and a tiny nation – that all luxury lovers should visit at least once. And the magnificent, three-pillared Marina Bay Sands should undoubtedly be your first port of call for a spot of high-stakes gambling. Here, you can expect to rub shoulders with the stars and indulge in some eye-watering high-rolling in over 15,000 metres of gaming space spread over four levels.

Home to over 600 table games, 1,500 slots and a plethora of high-end dining options where you can feast on mouth-watering menus designed by top chefs from around the world, don’t forget to head up to the rooftop afterwards for a drink at the bar and a chance to take in the breath-taking views across the bay. The Marina Bay Sands is also home to one of the most iconic infinity pools in the world, so be sure to check yourself in for a stay at one of the hotel’s many opulent suites so you’ll have the time to enjoy it to its full potential.

Highlights include the Li Ying VIP Club for high stakes gaming on baccarat and roulette tables, with the most competitive programs and table limits in Asia and an opulent experience guaranteed all round. For the utmost in exclusivity, head to Qi Long, a members-only gaming area that includes a mix of open gaming spaces, six private salons, and additional high stakes gaming.

The Philippines’ capital city of Manila might not be one of the most attractive cities in Asia compared to the likes of super luxe Singapore and trendy Kuala Lumpur, but this bay side destination provides an impressive backdrop for some of the classiest luxury hotel casinos in the world. Set against a landscape punctuated by beaches, mountains and volcanoes, here you’ll find the stylish Nobu Hotel Manila, set just a stone’s throw away from top local attractions and comprising a breath-taking golden tower where you’ll find a buzzing casino featuring all of your favourite games.

When it’s time to walk away with your winnings and explore the city, head to the Boulevard for a spot of designer shopping, visit DreamPlay by DreamWorks or settle in for a show at one of the many Las Vegas-style theatres the city has to offer – then book yourself an internal flight to one of the country’s many paradise islands for some down time.
