Send us an enquiry Inspired by the Las Vegas Strip in the USA’s Nevada, the Cotai Strip on Taipa Island is a casino and tourism project which began with the opening of the massive Venetian Macau and its indoor Venice canal and St Mark’s square replica in 2007. Today, it is home to various other contemporary and ritzy properties as the Grand Waldo Hotel, the Four Seasons Macau and the giant project, the City of Dreams which comprises the Grand Hyatt Macau, Hard Rock Macau and Crown Macau Hotels. It is also home to a number of large shopping complexes, restaurants and bars and colourfully spectacular shows as Cirque du Soleil’s Zaia and the more recently introduced The House of the Dancing Water. Non-existent a few years ago this Las Vegas inspired strip is an exciting addition to Macau, a major casino and tourism project of magnificent proportions. Gaming is one thing, but it is the range of spectacular shows, some free, and choices of shops, restaurants and bars that make it a magnet for visitors. The name "Cotai” is a “portmanteau” of the names of the two islands – Taipa and Coloane. The strip is graced with such gigantic properties as the Venetian Resort Macau, the Four Seasons Hotel Macau and the City of Dreams (Grand Hyatt Macau, Hard Rock Macau and Crown Macau Hotels).
