The Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino is on track to be the first five-star hotel and entertainment complex to open in Savannakhet Province, Laos, in November.
The project includes a 58,000-square-foot casino with 60 tables and 250 slots, a five-star hotel with 180 rooms, two restaurants, a coffee shop, a bar, a pool and a spa. Total investment is said to be around $25 million.
The resort will benefit from the easy access afforded visitors from Thailand via the Friendship Bridge over the Mekong River, completed in 2007. Thailand currently has no legal casinos.
This is the first major investment project in Laos for Sanum Investments Limited. Sanum is also building Paksong Vegas Spa Resort & Casino in Paksong District, Champasak Province, scheduled to open in spring of 2009.
