Sands Cotai Central celebrated the completion of Sheraton Macau Hotel's Earth Tower on Monday, with a celebrity-hosted ceremony that included drummers, a lion dance, firecrackers and an official ribbon cutting.

The addition of Earth Tower's 2,067 new rooms makes the 3,896-room hotel the largest in both Macau and in the global portfolio of Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

"With each new milestone in the development of Cotai Strip Resorts, Macau becomes one step closer to establishing itself as a world centre of tourism and leisure," said Edward Tracy, President and Chief Executive Officer, Sands China Ltd. "Inspired by the vision of our chairman, Mr. Sheldon Adelson, Sands China is proud of our contribution toward that goal. His innovative integrated resort concept provides Macau's visitors with a full spectrum of accommodation, retail, dining, entertainment and MICE offerings, which we are confident will transform Cotai into one of Asia's top destinations for business and leisure travellers. The wide range of products and services provided by our integrated resort city will be key drivers in the diversification of Macau's tourism industry."

In completing Earth Tower, Sheraton Macau Hotel will also soon be introducing the addition of two more outdoor pools, one offering views of Cotai.

The hotel is home to a well-equipped Sheraton Club Lounge, a main ballroom the size of more than 11 basketball courts, more than 160,000 square feet (over 14,800 square metres ) of meeting space and three signature restaurants.

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 Macau.
