After a four-month trial phase, the YOHO Treasure Island Resorts World Hotel in Macau will officially open on December 15.
This hotel, which was formerly a Genting project, is 700 meters tall and has an 886,237 square foot total floor space. It has 600 hotel rooms. Notably, the hotel’s third level has an outdoor heated swimming pool and Macau’s first large-scale outdoor Japanese-style hot spring spa.
Originally, the hotel had said in March that it would open before the end of the year. It was disclosed in June that trial operations would start in August and an official debut was scheduled for October. However, according to the most current information available on the building’s outside LED screen, December 15 is the official opening date.
In addition, 80% of the retail space has been leased, according to Jones Lang LaSalle, the hotel’s shopping center management company. This five-story, roughly 400,000-square-foot mall will include a range of features, such as bars, movies, supermarkets, Chinese and Western restaurants, and a playground for kids. Six well-known companies will also be shown, including the Galeries Lafayette department store in France.
At first, it was thought that the Genting Group intended to include gambling in the project when the chance presented itself. It was reported in 2021, however, that Genting Hong Kong would sell 50% of its interest in Genting Macau, which in turn owned 75% of Treasure Island Entertainment Co Ltd, the organization in charge of building the hotel that was originally known as Resorts World @ Macau. The previous year’s fruitless attempt by Genting Malaysia to get a casino concession in Macau seemed to have ended any chance of the Genting brand gaining traction in the region.
