Macau boutique hotel and casino aimed at Chinese gamblers

Macau: Work has started on the Louis XIII boutique casino and hotel.

The 230-room property will include 66 gaming tables, and an outpost of Michelin three-star restaurant L’Ambroisie. The developers have announced Graff Diamonds as the first retailer in the complex’s invitation-only, appointment-only shopping atelier, with prices starting at US$1 million.

Located south of the Cotai Strip near the tony One Oasis residential complex, the Louis XIII’s top suite will cost $130,000 a night. The property is due to open in late 2014 or first quarter 2015, subject to approval from Macau’s gaming regulators.

Stephen Hung, chairman of the Louis XIII development company said the hotel will provide an “unprecedented, über-luxury experience” for guests.

Visitor numbers to Macau have risen by 20 per cent annually, with gross gaming receipts reaching $38 billion in 2012.
