Altira Macau, formerly known as Crown Macau, is a resort and casino located at Taipa, Macau, China.

It contains 220 gaming tables, 500 gaming machines, and 216 guest rooms (previously known as Crown Casino). With 38 floors at a height of 160 meters, Altira Macau is the highest building in Taipa. It was built and is operated by Melco Crown Entertainment, a joint venture by Hong Kong-based Melco International Development Limited and Australian based Crown Limited. It opened on May 12, 2007, and James Packer was present for the opening ceremony.No tags for this post.
