MACAO—Sands Cotai Central celebrated the completion of Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central’s Earth Tower which added 2,067 new rooms and suites for a total room count to 3,896, making it the largest hotel both in Macao and in the global portfolio of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.
Sands Cotai Central’s parent-company Sands China Ltd., a majority-held subsidiary of global integrated resort developer Las Vegas Sands Corp., commemorated the event with a celebrity-hosted ceremony that included drummers, a lion dance, firecrackers and an official ribbon cutting. With the completion of Earth Tower, Sands China’s Cotai Strip Resorts now provides over 9,000 hotel rooms and suites — the single largest accommodation offering in Macao.
“Sheraton Macao Hotel is a landmark property for Macao and for Starwood,” said Josef Dolp, managing director, Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central. “Our dedicated team has worked very hard toward the completion of Earth Tower, and we all look forward to continuing to offer our guests Sheraton’s genuine and exceptional experiences, as we help define Macao as one of the world’s most exciting gathering places.”
In completing Earth Tower, Sheraton Macao Hotel will also soon be introducing the addition of two more outdoor pools. The hotel is also home to a Sheraton Club Lounge, a main ballroom the size of more than 11 basketball courts, more than 160,000 square feet of meeting space and three signature restaurants.
