Reflecting the amorous Italian city of Venice with a modern interpretation is The Venetian Macao Resort Hotel. Capturing the romance and heritage of the famous city in the heart of Macao, this vast 11 million square foot luxury resort sets new standards as the largest single structure hotel building in Asia, and the sixth biggest building in the world. This makes it a destination itself that replicates the elegant canals and boulevards of Venice.
Modelled from The Venetian hotel in Las Vegas, however twice as large, The Venetian Macao Resort Hotel has taken inspiration from the famous Italian explorer Marco Polo and his travels across China. Since its opening back in 2007, the resort has hosted millions of international guests who indulge themselves on the resort’s impressive line-up of facilities: from the portfolio of restaurants that specialise in cuisines from all corners of the globe, its shopping facilities, V Retreat spa, interactive experience and iconic casino.
In true Venetian style, The Venetian Macao Resort Hotel offers guests one of Venice’s most famous past times, gondola rides. An ideal way to explore the resort, these serene water journeys weave guests in an authentic gondola boat and along the canals among the resort’s shops and luxury boutiques.
This theme also extends to the resort’s collection of four Venetian pools. These inviting pools cater to the wide variety of guests who stay at the resort. Complete with a water slide and outdoor kids’ playground, the larger pools cater perfectly to family groups throughout the day, whilst the smaller and more intimate indoor spa pool is ideal for romantic couples along with the resort’s private cabanas that offer the ultimate luxury poolside experiences.
With one of the world’s largest casinos, gaming aficionados from across the globe travel far and wide to experience the 50,000 square meters of gaming space at The Venetian Macao Casino, which is open 24 hours of the day, seven days a week. Showcasing a unique Italian-Chinese style, four themed areas of the casino have been divided up and include: Golden Fish, Imperial House, Red Dragon and Phoenix and play host to an impressive variety of over 500 gaming tables, 2,000 slot machines and electronic table games that also include new and unique games not found anywhere else in the world, such as Fast Action Baccarat and Dragon Tiger Fortune Spin.
For high rollers the casino has its very own opulent VIP club: The Venetian Macao’s Paiza Club. With its very own separate entrance with private lifts and butlers to cater to VIP gamers’ every desire, it is one of Asia’s most exclusive gaming experiences. The Paiza Club has also been divided up into separate gaming areas that mirror the resort’s destination. Here, they have been named after major Asian cities including, Yunnan, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Additionally, the club also offers access to club restaurants and lounges.
A representative from Comeon Casino, one of the world’s leading online gaming sites, told LLM – Luxury Lifestyle Magazine: “This highly impressive casino and its VIP club facility is easily one of Asia’s leading gaming destinations. With the elegance of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities combined with Asia’s leading modern comforts, it is truly a world-class destination that should be on the radar of any keen gamer.”
In keeping with the luxury touches and overriding Venetian theme are the resort’s dynamic suites. Spanning across five categories, each is designed around the grand style and opulence of the resort with luxurious fixtures, fittings and furnishings, as well as mini-bars, high-speed wireless internet and TV. Ranging from the Royale, Bella, Rialto, Verona and Famiglia, each suite category has been carefully thought out to cater to every kind of guest from solo and business travellers who may prefer a Royale Suite complete with a king bed and an executive style desk, to the Famiglia suites, which have been created with larger family groups in mind, with DVD players, games consoles, children’s bunk beds and bean bags.
Two further suite classes are also available exclusively for the resort’s highly exclusive Paiza Club members. Four times the size of the resort’s standard suites, these five-star apartments come with added perks such as built-in Jacuzzis, private spas, espresso makers and even a limousine that collects guests from the airport in style.
