IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) today unveiled the world’s largest Holiday Inn, the 1,224-room Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central, with the opening of Sands Cotai Central, the latest Sands China Ltd. integrated resort on Macao’s Cotai Strip.

Guestrooms
The impressive 1,224 guestrooms, which include 65 suites, ensure both leisure and business travellers can find a room to suit their needs. All rooms and suites are decorated in a contemporary style with custom-designed furniture, feature floor-to-ceiling windows and offer a range of facilities, amenities and services. The deluxe rooms and suites overlook the city, providing inspiring views.

Technology lovers will feel right at home, as all guestrooms feature 32-inch LED televisions with video-on-demand, and DVD and CD players available upon request, as well as high-speed wireless Internet access.

The hotel is also connected by complimentary buses to and from all arrival points in Macao, including ferry terminals and the mainland China border. Macao’s UNESCO heritage sites and city centre are all within easy reach, and the concierge is always happy to suggest an itinerary.

Management
Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central is in very capable hands with Troy Hickox at the helm as General Manager. Originally from Sydney, Australia, Hickox is of mixed Australian and Chinese descent, and has considered Hong Kong home for the past 28 years, making him a natural fit with Macao’s East meets West heritage. He has 18 years of hotel opening and management experience with multi-award-winning internationally branded hotels in Asia and the United States. Hickox was also directly involved in the opening of the 3,000-suite The Venetian Macao and its exclusive Paiza Club. He is a graduate of both the Swiss Hotel Association colleges and Le Cordon Bleu Ecole de Cuisine, and a post-graduate alumnus of Oxford Brookes University Business School in the UK and Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration.

“I’m delighted to oversee the opening of the world’s largest Holiday Inn with such an engaging and enthusiastic team,” Hickox said. “We are looking forward to bringing a new international brand to the Cotai Strip and providing Holiday Inn’s world-renowned friendly service, which focuses on real world needs, to our guests at Sands Cotai Central.”

Galaxy spending $2 billion for new phase of Macau resort


By Farah Master
HONG KONG | Thu Apr 26, 2012 2:53am EDT
(Reuters) - Macau casino operator Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd (0027.HK) said on Thursday it plans to invest HK$16 billion ($2.06 billion) in the second phase of its latest resort in the world's largest gambling destination.

Home-grown Asian casino companies are stepping up their game and taking on Las Vegas gambling titans like Las Vegas Sands (LVS.N) and Wynn Resorts (WYNN.O) as they expand on their home turf.

Galaxy, controlled by Hong Kong property and construction businessman Lui Che Woo, said it plans to open the new phase by mid-2015. The projected date is likely to make it the next casino to open in the lucrative market and ahead of U.S. rivals, including Wynn Macau (1128.HK) and MGM China (2282.HK), who are still awaiting government approval for their developments.

The news comes just two weeks after Las Vegas mogul Sheldon Adelson's Macau unit, Sands China Ltd (1928.HK), opened the Sands Cotai Central casino a few hundred meters from Galaxy's property.

Armed with the biggest land-bank on Macau's developing Cotai strip, Galaxy's current casino on the strip accounts for just 25 percent of its total allocated space. The new phase will double its size.

Galaxy, which has a market capitalisation of $12 billion, is planning to expand its capacity by up to 500 tables and more than 1,000 slots with the new project.

Chief executive Francis Lui said the company had not yet entered into a formal agreement with the government for the number of tables, but he was confident it would be significantly accretive to earnings.

"ABUNDANT LABOUR"

Lui Che Woo, who is chairman of Galaxy, dismissed concerns that labour would be a problem in constructing the new phase, a problem that occurred in the rapid build-out of Macau a few years earlier.

"In the next few years labour will be more abundant. In 2012, 2013 there are not that many new projects opening," he said.

Casino players in the gambling enclave are racing to develop new properties to capture a larger slice of the Macau market, where gamblers spent $33.5 billion last year compared to Las Vegas, which took in $6 billion.

So far only Galaxy, Sands and Melco Crown (MPEL.O) (6883.HK), have a presence on the emerging Cotai strip, a reclaimed plot of land that the government is trying to develop into a global tourism and leisure hub.

Galaxy, 12.6 percent owned by European private equity firm Permira, will open two new luxury hotels, the Ritz-Carlton and the world's largest JW Marriott, as part of the project.

It will also expand retail space to more than 100,000 square meters and more than 200 luxury stores.

Robert Drake, chief financial officer, said no new equity would be issued and the casino would be financed through existing cash and debt.

Galaxy has already started construction and has 500 workers at present. Its golden turreted property was the only one to open in Macau last year, helping it to significantly increase its market share over the past 12 months.

Galaxy Entertainment's shares were up 4.6 percent on Thursday, outpacing a 0.5 percent gain in the benchmark Hong Kong index .HSI. Its shares have gained more than 65 percent so far this year.

An undisclosed institutional investor in Galaxy sold about a $141 million stake in the company this week, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Macau, the only place where Chinese nationals are legally allowed to gamble in casinos, said gambling revenue surged 24.4 percent in March to 25 billion patacas ($3.1 billion), in line with forecasts.

Marriott International and Galaxy Entertainment Group Announce the Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott Hotels in Macau

First All-Suite Ritz-Carlton Hotel and 1,000-plus room JW Marriott Hotel Scheduled to Open In 2015.

Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR) and Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) today announced they have signed long-term management agreements for more than 1,300 rooms, suites and floating villas at two landmark luxury hotels operated by Marriott International brands to anchor the second phase of the Galaxy Macau™: The Ritz-Carlton, Macau and the JW Marriott Hotel Macau.

The two hotels are expected to be Marriott International’s first in Macau. The company expects to open a hotel a month in China over the next three years. At the end of the first quarter, Marriott’s pipeline of hotels either under or approved for construction in China was 54 hotels and 17,000 rooms.

Galaxy Macau has established itself as the key leisure and resort destination in Macau offering three world-class hotels and more than 55 restaurants, cafes, bars and lounges in Phase 1 of their Macau development. The addition of the first all-suite Ritz-Carlton hotel and what will be the world’s largest JW Marriott hotel when it opens in Phase 2 of Galaxy Macau will establish a strong presence for Marriott International in this key destination.

“We are very excited to be launching our brands in Macau,” said Simon Cooper, president and managing director Marriott International, Asia. “Macau is a compelling and dynamic market and we have invested a great deal of time identifying the right partner and property for The Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott hotels. GEG and the Lui family are bold innovators who understand the market and their customers intrinsically; for us they are the perfect partners.

“We fully subscribe to GEG’s ‘World Class, Asian Heart’ philosophy which resonates with Marriott International's core values and The Ritz-Carlton hallmark Gold Standards. China is our second largest market outside North America and opening two of our premier brands on the same site in such a fast growing market is a major commitment, underscoring our confidence in both Macau and Galaxy.”

"To complement Phase 1’s exceptional hotel offering we are extremely pleased to be introducing Marriott International’s globally recognised luxury hotel brands including the first ever all-suite The Ritz-Carlton and the world’s largest JW Marriott upon completion in 2015,” said Dr. Che-woo Lui, Chairman of GEG. “Marriott International’s core values and The Ritz-Carlton hallmark Gold Standards underpinned by a strong understanding of Asian customers' tastes and preferences complements Galaxy’s ‘World Class, Asian Heart’ service philosophy.”

The Ritz-Carlton, Macau will feature 250 one- and two-bedroom suites, including the stylish The Ritz-Carlton suite. Designed in a traditional Ritz-Carlton style, the hotel will be sought out by those who value luxury and innovation combined with incomparable levels of privacy and intimacy. The hotel will offer the impeccable levels of service for which the brand is famous around the world, and will be located on the top floors of the Galaxy Macau.

The hotel’s restaurants will include a lavish all-private-dining Chinese restaurant, the lobby lounge and bar, a pool bar and the Ritz Bar with spectacular views over the Cotai skyline.

The hotel will also feature an outdoor rooftop pool with Jacuzzi and eight private cabanas. Guests will be truly able to get away from it all in a luxuriously stylish setting with the emphasis on relaxation and privacy. An exceptional spa will offer the very best in massage therapy in a stylishly designed setting.

The JW Marriott Hotel Macau will feature nearly 1,100 rooms and suites, including the stunning Presidential Suite. The hotel’s signature restaurant will be Chinese and feature a selection of private dining rooms for guests to choose from. In addition, the hotel will also offer a stylish three-meal restaurant, with guests having direct access to the wide variety of restaurants in the Galaxy Macau development.

A stunning pool will allow guests to relax in a tranquil and peaceful setting, while the spa will enable guests to relax in a stylish environment. The hotel will also feature a fully equipped fitness centre, and a salon.

The Ritz-Carlton and JW hotels will also offer additional space for meetings, events and banquets - including individual ballrooms on the ground floor of each hotel - that will have a capacity to accommodate approximately 2,000 guests. This will appeal very much to the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibition) market and the hotels will be able to cater directly to the individual needs of groups booking at either or both hotels allowing great flexibility and access to a wide range of facilities across the properties.

The projected 2015 opening of The Ritz-Carlton and JW hotels in Macau are part of Phase 2 of Galaxy Macau’s “World Class, Asian Heart” Macau development.

There has not been a lot of news regarding the new Wynn development in Cotai Strip as Steve Wynn is very secretive about all his projects. But I have found some updates from Wynn's investor presentation slides and want to share it here:

(source: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix....-presentations)

The new resort is called Wynn Palace. Judging from the rendering, it is really not that exciting. It's a low-rise chocolate-brown building with dancing fountains in front, basically the same style as the Wynn Hotel in Downtown Macau. There is a light rail/monorail station in the front, and there appears to be an aerial gondola/tram that takes you from the light rail station to the hotel and circles the lake.

Project is to be completed in first half of 2016.







Enjoy :-)
