The Palazzo Versace luxury hotel is located on the Cotai Strip in Macau.
Macau.- SJM Resorts‘ chairman, Daisy Ho, announced on Wednesday (March 15) that the company plans to hold a soft launch of its Palazzo Versace luxury hotel on the Cotai Strip in Macau this April. Representatives from Versace will attend a grand opening at a later date.

SJM has recently reported gaming revenue was HK$6.1bn (US$780m) in 2022, down by 36 per cent compared to a year earlier. The company confirmed a loss attributable to its owners of HK$7.80bn, up 88.2 per cent from 2021. It reported it had a 15.8 per cent share of Macau’s gaming revenue, including 19.8 per cent of mass-market table gross gaming revenue and 4.9 per cent of VIP gross gaming revenue.
Grand Lisboa Palace generated gross revenue of HK$687m in 2022, with gross gaming revenue of HK$346m compared to HK$200m in 2021.
