The hotel will be in the heart of the bustling Cotai Strip and part of Sands China’s newest integrated resort – Sands Cotai Central.

LVS’s Venetian Macao was the first hotel to debut on the area’s Cotai Strip in 2007 and when completed the Strip will offer an exciting new line-up of world-class hotels, prestigious brands and sensational entertainment.
