Travel News Asia Friday, 2 March 2007

Starwood Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement with Las Vegas Sands Corporation to develop two hotels on the Cotai Strip development in Macau: The Sheraton Macao Hotel and The St. Regis Hotel & Residences, Macao. The 4,000-room Sheraton Macao Hotel is expected to open in 2008 and the 460-room St. Regis Hotel and over 400 St. Regis Residences will open in 2009. The Sheraton hotel will be one of the largest hotels to be built on the strip, as well as Starwoods largest hotel globally.

The two-hotel project is poised to provide a major presence for Starwood in Macau, as well as being an integral part of a new flagship development in the new Las Vegas of Asia. The Cotai Strip is a master planned development of resort casino properties on Cotai, an area of reclaimed land between the islands of Taipa and Coloane in Macao.

Starwood is a well-respected international company and the Sheraton and St. Regis brands are synonymous with superior quality and service, said William P. Weidner, president and chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp. Their presence on the Cotai Strip speaks volumes to the commitment we all have of establishing Macao as a true leisure and business travel destination.

Macau is a Special Administrative Region of Peoples Republic of China. It is located on the Southeast coast of China and the western bank of the Pearl River Delta. Bordering on Guangdong Province, it is located 60km from Hong Kong and 145km from the city of Guangzhou. Macau has had an annual growth rate of close to 20% since 1998, with tourist arrivals expected to grow at an aggressive average of 18% annually.

The Sheraton Macao Hotels facilities will be located within two towers and will include approximately 4,000 rooms, 5 restaurants, over 140,000 square feet of meeting space, one health club in each tower, a spa, and two outdoor swimming pools. At the hotel, guests will experience Sheraton's warm, intuitive service and signature amenities designed to provide travelers with a sense of community while on the road.

The St. Regis Hotel will offer guests approximately 460 rooms, including 341 standard rooms and 119 suites, 4 restaurants, meeting space, a health club, a Remde Spa, and a swimming pool. The St. Regis Residences will feature over 400 residential units, ranging from one-bedroom to four-bedroom units, a residence-only swimming pool and its own health club.
