It's nearly a carbon copy of its Las Vegas counterpart; just like the original, this hotel has the grand canal, canal shoppes, and that memorable Italian façade beneath a ceaseless blue sky. The Winter on Cotai performances are quite entertaining with acts in rapid succession. There's a band here, Blue Note (hoping I remember the name correctly), that's all-around awesome - great sounds, great audience rapport, great group dynamic. The biggest downside of this hotel is it's away from most everything you'll want to see in Macau; the bright side is that it provides frequent buses to and from the hotel. (It's just a short ride.)

Located in the Las Vegas of Asia, the Venetian in Macau (Macao) is similar to the same name hotel/casino in Las Vegas. It has a shopping center with the renaissance themed ceiling and an indoor river with gondolas.
As far as the hotel/casino, it is a large property. Though much more relaxed than Las Vegas. You can take a free casino bus to the Venetian from the ferry terminal. There are also buses at the Venetian which can take you to other casino properties in Macau if you would prefer not to go straight back to the ferry.
I did some gambling here and I was pleased that I didn't have to convert my Hong Kong dollars to Macanese patacas (the local currency). You can simply insert HKD when playing on the slots. I actually won some money here which was returned in HKD as well. Used my winnings to pick up some yummy beef jerky at Koi Kei.
As far as hotel/casinos go in Macau, the Venetian is at the top of the list.

In a small island where space is a luxury ... the Venetian definitely pushes the limits of bringing the enormity that you'll find in the US to the small island of Macau.
Like it's Vegas counter part there is luxury and opulence that rivals the nicest hotels in Vegas. But the only downside ... it's a bit off the beating path.
Most of the other hotels are on the other side ... so if you want to hotel hop, it's not as convenient.
However, it makes up for this by basically providing everything you'd ever want so you'll never really have to leave.

Are you familiar with the Venetian in Vegas... well multiply that by 10 and you might have something comparable to what you'd find here. The suites are the same if not bigger. And I'm very sure that their suites are larger. I look back at both of my pictures from both and I'm pretty sure that the Macao everything is larger, even if it is only perceptible to me. The canals are bigger, longer, more grand. The shops.. well there's more of them. I almost got lost walking around its so big.
I like it.. hell, I love it. The place is huge. They have tons of dim sum on the gambling floor. They've imported the staff to sing on the gondolas. Even if it is situated forever away from downtown, I'd still be willing to come back here anytime.
Best thing is, when you're tired of gambling there's a restaurant located in the middle of the game floor where I dined on dim sum and more dim sum and MORE DIM SUM! Oh, and some tea also...

This is the biggest casino in the world, even though it carry many of the same design as the vegas one, it got more shops and style in this one. Definite worth to visit when you in Macau, to gamble or not.

Simply beautiful. Get a panoramic shot with the hotel in the background at night. Plenty of work gone into the decor of this hotel and it looks very grand.
Hosts high end brands of shops inside.
Not sure if any had surpassed yet, but it's apparently the biggest hotel so far.
