The Parisian Macao Unveils Promotional Trailer
In April, The Parisian Macao targeted September 2016 for opening, but promise that the new Cotai Strip resort is "coming soon." Unlike MGM Cotai and Wynn Palace Cotai both of which have faced extensive construction delays, Sands China made their intentions to get the property open "as soon as possible" very clear. Sands historically has engaged in soft opening properties, engaging in final finishing and polishing stages while being used by the public.
The computer generated architectural fly through video contains a number of interesting vignettes. After drone-style, establishing shot of Sands China's resorts on The Cotai Strip - Sands Cotai Central domino towers, Venetian Macao and The Plaza/Four Seasons, an orchestral flourish announces our arrival at The Parisian.
We fly over the porte cochere and through the legs of the Eiffel Tower replica and into the grand lobby of the hotel. From there we see two different hotel front desk lobbies (one for VIP?) some public areas, the "Shoppes at Parisian" shopping district, convention spaces, restaurants, "Le Spa'tique" spa, a standard hotel rooms and then back outside to peer at the the pool deck and "Aqua World."
Parisian Macao Rooms & Suites
Parisian Macao will feature 3,000 hotel rooms and suites. Sizes range from 33m2 (350 sqft) to 47m2 (500 sq ft).
Parisian Macao Standard Hotel Room
To my eyes, there is nothing French about these room designs. They are simple, pedestrian, maybe even a little plain.
Here's an alternate view of the same standard room. Modeled after the Red Rooms at Paris Las Vegas, perhaps?
Parisian Macao Suites
Other than the Eiffel Tower replica in the window, I'm not really sure what makes these room designs part of the French-themed. Perhaps this is a good thing.
Aqua World is described as:
a paid-for play area with towers and, a life-size Air Ship where the entire family can enjoy gliding down the waterslides.
Do they mean "paid-for" as in free or "paid-for-play" as in requiring admission fee?
Restaurant listings announced for the new Parisian Macao include Savor le Buffet (buffet), Brasserie (French), La Chine (French/Chinese hybrid inside the Eiffel Tower), Market Bistro (Asian night market style). There will be more.
Nobody does the old world theme resorts quite like Sands Corp., I expect Parisian Macao to be equally as thrilling and detailed as the Venetian. Can't wait.
