A favoured travel destination for millions of visitors every year from all over the globe, Paris is arguably the most romantic city in the world. Now, visitors to Macao will also be able to experience an authentic recreation of the most alluring and enchanting of cities when they visit The Parisian Macao.

First impressions count and visitors to the Cotai Strip will be mesmerized by the breathtaking half-scale authentic recreation of the famed Eiffel Tower that sits majestically at the hotel’s entrance. The original tower in Paris has inspired generations of writers, artists, romantics and lovers to follow their dreams; visitors to Macao will get the same inspirational sense from The Parisian Macao’s Eiffel Tower. With observation decks offering views to mainland China, as well as unparalleled panoramic views of the Cotai Strip, the tower will have a gourmet restaurant offering a unique blend of East and West culinary traditions. The Eiffel Tower is set to be Macao’s must-see landmark.

Beyond the Eiffel Tower and the beautiful façade of The Parisian Macao, visitors will find an overwhelming sense of ‘joie de vivre’ as the French say. This “joy of living” is a classic French trait and one that will be available to all visitors when they experience The Parisian Macao.

Offering everything you have come to expect from Sands China’s resorts – and more, The Parisian Macao will have a full array of integrated facilities including over 2,900 guestrooms and suites, of which at least one-third of the rooms will have spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower itself. In addition the Shoppes at Parisian will be a retail mall like no other, and will be home to more than 150 boutiques with the latest in luxury fashion designers, couture and lifestyle brands, all set in a stunning setting reminiscent of Paris’ famed Champs Elysees. Guests and visitors alike will also be able to enjoy daily entertainment from French themed Streetmosphere characters including an eclectic mix of street artists, mimes, and buskers. To relax there will be formal gardens, fountains, hedge mazes, reflective pools, carousels, arcades and bistros, all reminiscent of being in the City of Lights.

Paris is also renowned for its exceptional food and The Parisian Macao will emulate this with an abundance of magnificent dining options for guests to choose from, including the hotel’s Pan-Asian style signature restaurant Le Chine which will be located within the Eiffel Tower itself.

The Parisian Macao will also feature exceptional meeting spaces (over 5,200 sqm), including the 3,400-sqm Parisian Ballroom, which will be a spectacular backdrop for weddings and meetings with flare. The other seven meeting spaces will be able to accommodate everything from a boardroom meeting to large-scale corporate events.

In addition, guests will also be able to enjoy a world-class spa – Le SPA’tique; kids’ club; health club with the latest gym equipment and an outdoor pool with a themed water park.

Entertainment is what Sands China Ltd does best and at The Parisian Macao, guests and visitors will be able to experience world class theatrical and entertainment shows in the purpose built Parisian Theatre which can cater for up to 1,200 guests.

The unique setting and architecture of The Parisian Macao is sure to inspire everyone who visits the resort and it’s destined to be the ideal backdrop for photographers and ‘selfies’. The romantic décor and exquisite touches will also provide the perfect inspiration for couples looking to celebrate a truly extraordinary wedding.

Another unique feature of The Parisian Macao will be linked walkways to The Venetian Macao and the Shoppes at Four Seasons allowing guests and visitors to enjoy the full Sands Resorts Cotai Strip experience.

The Parisian Macao is coming to Macao and is set to be unveiled in late 2016 and is certainly going to be tres magnifique.

However, Macau has seen almost 24 month on month revenue slumps during the past years, with many VIP rooms calling it a day. Let’s see how the China economy pan out…..
