What You Need To Know:
Babylon Casino is the dedicated casino for the entirety of SJM's master-planned Fisherman's Wharf district. It does not have a hotel. The nearest hotels are Rocks Hotel, Sands Macao or Galaxy Waldo.
Babylon Casino has two main casino rooms a large two floor room which is lavishly decorated in a very earthy and different way. How can one describe this? It's not possible so... check out the photos. The second gambling floor was pretty empty last time we were there, but is absolutely a gorgeous room to behold. At the very least, take a walk around and look at the beautiful decor.
The dealers here also are a little over zealous to get you to join a game. They will invite you to join their table by extending their arms in greeting.
Babylon Casino is located at the end of Macau's Fisherman's Wharf - a 3 minute walk from the Macau ferry terminal and Sands Macao.

A Little History:
Babylon Casino in Macau's Fisherman's Wharf opened on December 23, 2005. It is owned by Dr. Ho's SJM. Babylon Casino (or Casino Bablyon) was originally intended to be a nightclub on Fisherman's Wharf but was switched to a casino during the planning stages.

Babylon Casino does not have its own accommodations, but the 72-room "Rocks Hotel" is next door. The Rocks offers four types of rooms, Deluxe, Premier, Grande Premier and Premier Suites. Hotel rates at Rocks can be a little pricey. It should be said that The Rocks is a five star boutique hotel with gorgeous 18th century architecture, plush interiors, luxurious rooms and is only steps away from the Macau to Hong Kong ferry and the Macao Sands. If you've got the loot, you really can't go wrong at The Rocks.
Babylon Casino offers a number of dining options. Being that Babylon is in the thick of the Fisherman's Wharf, there are tons of restaurants in the surrounding areas as well, including Vic's Cafe and Sky Lounge (booze, no food), African Grill and the BBQ joint next to the Rocks Hotel. Yummy.
Restaurants, Bars & Nightlife:
The Fisherman's Wharf is essentially a mini-theme park with Disneyesque "Lands", here though these lands are real places. There is a New Orleans area (with tons of Nawlin's style chow), Amsterdam (no ganja), Rome, Aladdin's Fort (for kids), CapeTown, Libson, and African (definitely check out the AfriKana BBQ Restaurant for a culinary adventure). There is an amazing amount of very interesting stuff to do in the Fisherman's Wharf.
Attractions and Things To Do:
If you're into astrology and gambling... then you gotta go visit the Babylon casino. The VIP casino pit domed blue ceiling supports a large crystal chandelier that hovers above 12 ten foot tall columns that have beautiful sculptures of the 12 astrological signs on them.
