The long-awaited City of Dreams Mediterranean is finally one step away from opening its gates to the public and, according to initial estimates, more than 300,000 visitors from all over the world are expected annually to the island of Cyprus and Limassol to experience the unparalleled experience it promises.
This is the first Integrated Resort in Europe and the €550 million invested in the construction of the City of Dreams is the largest tourism investment ever made in Cyprus.
The benefits for the country’s economy are expected to be even higher, as the resulting tourism will generate €700 million per year, an amount equivalent to 4% of GDP.
What does the City of Dreams Mediterranean Casino offer?
The imposing City of Dreams Mediterranean casino will offer unprecedented entertainment to its visitors. The 7500sqm gaming area will feature 136 tables with the world’s most popular table games and more than 1200 state-of-the-art gaming machines.
Admission will be free, allowed to persons over 21 years of age, and access to the games will be 24/7. Always in accordance with the conditions and rules of the National Gaming Authority and Casino Supervision of Cyprus.
The company behind the project: Melco
The experience and expertise of Melco, which has undertaken the design and implementation of the City of Dreams project in Limassol, guarantees the excellent service and warm hospitality of the venue.
The multi-award winning group (700 international awards, including 97 stars in the Forbes Travel Guide and 7 Michelin stars in the Guide Hong Kong Macau 2022) has taken the best possible care of the food and bars in the casino area and aspires to offer the region the most complete tourist destination that will meet the needs and tastes of the most demanding visitor.
City of Dreams: Location, Hotel & more
More specifically, the City of Dreams Limassol is located in Zakaki, an area that belongs to the western part of the city and its design has a strong Mediterranean character. It has been built according to the principles of sustainable environmental development and its external appearance is in harmony with the natural environment and landscape of Cyprus.
As for the rest of its facilities, City of Dreams Mediterranean will feature a 14-storey five-star hotel with 500 luxury rooms and suites, 11 fine dining venues and luxury shops, a wellness centre and a sports centre, as well as a large aquatic adventure park for the whole family.
Of course, there could be no shortage of exhibition space, which is why specially designed buildings totalling around 9,000sqm will be available for conferences and exhibitions, along with an open-air amphitheatre.
As one can understand, we are talking about facilities and amenities that make the City of Dreams in Cyprus the largest multi-theme casino in Europe.
When will City of Dreams open their doors?
After repeated postponements, with the pandemic of the past two years being the main cause, the second quarter of 2023 has been set as the most likely time for the opening of City of Dreams Mediterranenan.
The project has additionally experienced some delays and difficulties with its contractors, but all that seems to be in the past and may even be put into operation a little earlier, although nothing can be said for sure yet.
Throughout its construction phase, the project has provided around 4000 jobs and once fully operational, City of Dreams Mediterranean will employ around 2500 workers.
The whole project, it is understood, will improve and enrich the tourism product of Cyprus and will contribute significantly to the economy of the country and its citizens.
Moreover, both casino enthusiasts and travellers seeking something new will finally be able to visit a destination that combines the highest form of entertainment with luxury and has all the possibilities and guarantees to captivate its visitors.
The City of Dreams Mediterranenan is here to stay and will be a jewel on the eastern side of the Mediterranean between Europe, Asia and Africa. If it succeeds, they may even be a City of Dreams in Larnaca, Nicosia or Paphos in a few years.
