- We opened the doors of MGM COTAI in February showcasing MGM's one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences. MGM COTAI is a HK$27 billion integrated resort that leverages innovation and artistry, allowing our guests to create extraordinary moments during their stay and supporting the development of Macau as a global tourism destination.
