Your first thought may be the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, but in this list we are going to show some of the most luxurious Casino Hotels in the world in places you might not have expected.
Sit back, pour yourself some champagne and dream of staying in some of the beauties.
The Kurhaus of Baden-Baden Casino ( Germany )
Our first pick takes us to one of the oldest casino hotels in the world. The Kurhaus in Baden-Baden was built in 1820, which makes this year its Bicentennial year. Not only does the Kurhaus offer gamblers elegant surroundings to play various casino games, but also offers a world-renowned spa for guests to relax and unwind at. If you do get tired of the surroundings inside, you have the luxury of visiting the famous Black Forest, which is one of the top tourist hot spots in the region.
Ibiza Gran Hotel Casino ( Spain)
This hotel blends a casino with the party lifestyle and white sand beaches of the Balearic island very well. The hotel offers some incredible views of the old town and marina for its guests, which can also be very romantic too. The casino portion features a fantastic array of slot machines as well as gambling tables too. This casino is also recognised by those in the know as a venue for some of the most famous Texas Hold em’ tournaments.
Marina Bay Sands Casino ( Singapore)
Probably the most iconic casino hotel on this list, the Marina Bay, has become one of the most significant landmarks in Singapore due to its incredible design and architecture. It is probably more widely known than the famous fountain lion, which is another iconic landmark in the country. It is not just a hotspot for gambling enthusiasts but also many travellers who frequent this hotel just to marvel at it. Major events have been hosted at the Marina Bay through the years as well. Politicians, celebrities and big-name athletes come to the Marina Bay year-on-year.

The Ritz-Carlton San Juan Casino (Puerto Rico)
The Ritz-Carlton in Puerto Rico offers some incredible views out across the vast Atlantic Ocean and is a massive complex in itself, measuring at 8 acres total. The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan Casino is well known as one of the best casino hotels in the world. The casino offers lots of games such as mini-baccarat, roulette, let-it-ride games, and blackjack too. There is also a massive amount of slot machines, totalling 300 in all. The hotel also has a neighbouring five-star restaurant which serves some incredibly authentic Puerto Rican cuisine.
The Venetian ( Macao)
As the de facto Las Vegas of the East, Macau has become the epicentre of casinos and gambling in Asia. It will come as no surprise then that as the city started to expand and was declared a “gambling city” by the Chinese Government, the big Las Vegas brands moved in to mark their territory. The Venetian in Macao is closely modelled on its sister in Vegas and was opened in 2007. This building is the largest hotel building in Asia, at 39 storeys tall and measuring a total of 10.5 million square feet.
There are 3000 hotel suites on offer and can cost as much as $1500 a night. The largest room on offer is the Presidente which has four bedrooms, a home cinema room and two separate massage rooms. It even has a hair studio so you can get a fresh trim before you head out.
To top all of this off the complex offers gondola rides around the man-made canals that surround the hotel.
