The City of Dreams boasts group hotels of staggering size and scale – including Sands Cotai Central, the fifth-largest in the world.
From the Parisian Macao to the Venetian Macao, the brother property of one of the world’s most famous group hotels, The Venetian Las Vegas.
Sands Cotai Central
There are four group hotels in one at the Sands Cotai Central casino resort. It has the fifth most rooms and suites of any hoteling complex in the world, behind only Malaysia’s First World Hotel and in Las Vegas, CityCenter, Sin City’s Palazzo + The Venetian Las Vegas and the MGM Grand Las Vegas + The Signature.
Located seven minutes by car from Macau International Airport, the gambling hot spot’s largest hotel is comprised of four towers and hoteling groups. First up is the Sheraton Grand Macau, occupying two towers, Sky and Earth, and boasting 4,001 of the 6,000 total rooms and suites in the complex. Then, for the luxury traveler, there’s St. Regis Macau and the Conrad Macau; completing the complex is the Holiday Inn Macau, offering a more affordable stay.
The Parisian Macao
The Parisian Macao is an envelope-pushing five star stopover, upholding the highest standards of luxury and service across 3,000 hotel rooms. True to its Paris theme, it’s best-known for its half-scale Eiffel Tower landmark, which stands tall at 525 feet.
The Lyon Suite and Champagne Suite are sized at 72 sqm, and can accommodate three adults and one child. If staying in one of the former, ask for a view of The Tower. Opened in 2016, it boasts 170 shops, 13 restaurants and a 1,200-seat theatre.
The Venetian Macao
Its brother property, the Venetian Las Vegas, of course opened in 1999. The Venetian Macau followed in 2007, boasting a prime location on the Cotai Strip and offering a similarly spectacular homage to the Italian city of Venice. It is Asia’s largest single-structure hotel building.
There are 3,000 five star suites here, making this one of the world’s leading group hotels. The Royale Deluxe suite can accommodate up to four adults, along with the Bella Deluxe, the Premio Royale and the Premio Bella. Lastly, the Famiglia Suite can host two adults and two children. A true city within a city, it also has a ginormous retail space, a spa, a casino and a 1,800-seater theatre.
Offering 2,200 rooms, suites and villas is the Galaxy Macau, a three hotel complex comprised of the five star Galaxy Hotel (1,500 rooms), and the smaller Banyan Tree Macau and the Hotel Okura Macau. Since its Phase 2 development in 2015, Galaxy Macau lays claim to six world class group hotels in one, including the only all-suite Ritz-Carlton.
In addition to the EPSA Macau spa, you can explore 120 restaurants and the plethora of shopping options, with 200 brand represented. The best feature, however? The world’s largest Skytop Wave Pool, which covers 4,000 sqm and features a 350-ton white sand beach!
