Three Most Luxurious Casinos Outside of North America
When walking on the plush red carpets of The Venetian, or under the massive chandeliers dripping with crystals in the Monte-Carlo, it’s hard not to be overtaken by the sense of luxury that permeates throughout the facility. These casinos are playgrounds for the rich and famous. Billions of dollars go into their construction because people who gamble with $25,000 chips expect perfection. We’ve rounded up three of the most luxurious casinos outside of America.
Casino Baden-Baden, Germany
Old world charm fills Casino Baden-Baden located just outside of the Black Forest town in Germany. With over a century and a half of history behind it, Casino Baden-Baden displays historic and traditional décor with light modern touches. Red and gold cover the ground and walls, and massive chandeliers hang from velour ropes. The walls and ceilings are a mix of ornate crown moldings and murals, offering a feast for the eyes.
Casino de Monte-Carlo, Monaco
The Casino de Monte-Carlo rivals Casino Baden-Baden in terms of history and opulence. What started as an idea to save the House of Grimaldi from going bankrupt, turned into one of the world’s most beautiful and intriguing casinos. Locals are forbidden from entering the Casino de Monte-Carlo, which was opened in 1863, and to enforce the rule, ID is checked at the door.
The casino is intimately connected with the James Bond saga. Fleming based the Casino Royal novel on one of the Casino de Monte-Carlo buildings. The casino also served as the location for several Bond movies.
The Venetian Macao, Macau
What the Venetian Macao lacks in history, it compensates with sheer size. Owned by Las Vegas Sands and based on its sister casino resort in Las Vegas, The Venetian Macao is worth a trip to the tiny Cotai Strip in Macau. Boasting 10.5 million square feet and 39 stories, the Venetian Macao is the largest casino in the world. Staying in one of its 3,000 suites will make you feel like royalty. You can even rent one called the Cielo suite, which is 3,800 square feet and comes with limousine and butler services.
