There are 3 elements to any casino, a hotel, shops and the Casino itself. And here, they are all super sized. Pictures can't really explain this, to be honest!
I had the privilege to have an "all access tour" of what I really thought was the best casino in terms of design, the Galaxy. Even though opulent, the decor was tasteful. The shopping area was kitted out with all the premium shops any high-roller could ask for, and the hotels, spas and restaurants were so beautiful. We peeked inside the Bayan Tree Spa.... I should have left some time for a treatment! Also the boutique restaurants were exquisite, the Japanese had echoes of a Superpotato design, and even a personal dome to have sake in.
What is unique about the Galaxy, is that they are aiming to cater to families and to create a resort experience. The hotel has beautiful pools, and even private villas if you fancy splashing out. Phase 2 is on site, and it seems that China's love affair with gambling is going from strength to strength.
