Along with the hotel the resort includes a casino, conference centre, retail centre of more than 74,000m² called the Shoppes, two theatres, a museum of art and science shaped like a giant hand and, an event plaza with room for 10,000 people. There are also two ‘crystal pavilions’ in the dock to the rear of the scheme, one containing a Louis Vuitton store and the other a nightclub.
