Mr Paul Tse, Chairman of the Hong Kong and Macau panel of judges of the Asia Property Awards and a member of the Asia Grand Final panel of judges, congratulated MGM COTAI on its achievement, “It is extremely gratifying to see that winners in the Best Hotel categories of the ‘Asia Property Awards’ and the ‘China Property Awards’ over the years have included some of the most luxurious and unique hotels and resorts from the region. Given the high standard of hotels completed in Macau, it is not surprising that Macau again came out on top and we are delighted to see MGM COTAI and its unique design garnering so many awards.”
