Project in focus: Caesars Resort Incheon

by | 18 Sep 2020 | Projects

The South Korean city of Incheon is preparing to welcome the first Caesars-branded integrated resort in Asia.

Work is continuing on developing an ambitious resort destination on Yeongjong Island off the western coast of the city known as the Integrated Resort Cluster Project, one of the highlights of which will be the Caesars Resort Incheon. This 720-key project is scheduled to complete in the first quarter of 2021.

Caesars Korea a first for Asia

It’s envisaged that the wider mixed-use scheme will include numerous five-star hotels, such as the existing Paradise City complex and the upcoming Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment’s Inspire Entertainment Resort, as well as Caesars Resort Incheon. Handily, the island is also home to Incheon International Airport.

Speaking to GGRAsia in 2018, William Shen, Caesars senior vice president and managing director for Korea and Japan, explained: “Incheon Airport is a really, really busy airport with all kinds of flight traffic from many parts of the world. So that’s part of the traffic that we want to capitalise on.

“We also want to have a kind of balanced view and not be reliant on VIPs. I think the premium mass segment as it exists in markets in other places in Asia certainly is going to be an attractive segment as well.”

What’s in store at Caesars Resort Incheon

There will be a veritable smorgasbord of activities, amenities and entertainment on offer at Caesars Resort Incheon. Spread over a total area of more than 38,000 sq m, the resort has been developed by LOCZ Korea Corporation, designed by GNI Architects & Engineers and showcases interiors by Hirsch Bedner Associates Seoul.

The resort will boast 720 guest rooms, suites and villas, with a mix of luxury five-star hotel facilities and serviced residences. One of the more unusual features will be its foreigner-only casino. Shen also elaborated on this aspect, saying: “The concern is always – it is a foreigner-only casino; it doesn’t have domestic gambling customers in the way Kangwon Land has tonnes and tonnes of visitors. I think our model is one where we want to emphasise non-gaming anyways: the non-gaming capabilities, the non-gaming offers that we have to showcase.”

In addition, there will be multiple live entertainment venues, plus ample space for business travellers, who can avail themselves of the hotel-integrated conference centre, ballrooms, meeting rooms, boutique retail experiences, signature Qua Baths & Spa and fitness centre, numerous F&B outlets, and array of indoor and outdoor pools onsite.
