Casino mogul Steve Wynn is such a believer in the strength of the Chinese gambling hub of Macau that he said, while promoting the launch of Encore Macau, that he is planning a third major casino there and will consider relocating the Las Vegas headquarters of Wynn Resorts to Macau.
Encore is adjacent to sister resort Wynn Macau and has 414 suites and villas. Encore introduces two new restaurants to the Wynn dining family plus Bar Cristal, the elegant lobby bar. The Spa at Encore offers treatments in eight private therapy suites, each with its own steam room, sauna and aroma-hydrotherapy bath and shower. The Shopping Esplanade is home to three signature stores, Cartier, Chanel and Piaget, which will offer limited-edition pieces unique to Encore.
Wynn told reporters he plans to start construction next year on a hotel and casino on Cotai, an area that's already home to a casino operated by the Las Vegas Sands Corp. That hotel and casino complex should be completed before the end of 2013.
