Las Vegas Sands to launch The Parisian, a 2,900-room mega-resort with a replica of the Eiffel Tower
It already allows guests to take gondola rides along an indoor Venetian canal, and soon, in its latest journey into European kitsch, Las Vegas Sands will offer visitors to Macau the chance to stroll through the streets of Paris.
Details of the company's latest Macanese mega-resort, The Parisian Macao, were unveiled this week ahead of its launch in late 2016. Billed as "the crowning jewel of [Las Vegas Sands chairman] Sheldon G. Adelson's vision for the Cotai Strip", the new French-themed integrated resort will feature more than 2,900 hotel rooms, more than a third of which will overlook a replica of the Eiffel Tower.
"The original tower in Paris has inspired generations of writers, artists, romantics and lovers to follow their dreams; visitors to Macau will get the same inspirational sense from The Parisian Macao's Eiffel Tower," the company claimed.
The new Eiffel Tower will be half the size of the Paris original, and will feature observation decks and a restaurant offering views towards mainland China.
Other facilities at the complex will include a large casino with 450 table games and 2,500 slot machines, a 1,200-seat theatre, spa and fitness facilities, an outdoor pool and water park, and a large shopping mall featuring more than 150 outlets, specialising in fashion and lifestyle brands, which Las Vegas Sands says will be "reminiscent of Paris' famed Champs Elysees".
