About us
The Brand

Melco’s unique blend of design, entertainment and quality sets the company apart,  making us the global leader in premium integrated resorts. 

From the start in 2004 we took a pioneering approach, believing that there was so much more to offer guests beyond simply gaming. Design and quality always lead our thinking when we create our one of a kind destinations. And we collaborate with some of the world’s greatest talents in entertainment, architecture, cuisine, art, wellness, sport and hospitality to deliver incomparable experiences.

With over 18,000 colleagues, Melco is an active contributor to the communities within which it operates. Our five integrated resorts in Macau, the Philippines and the soon to be opened Cyprus set bold new standards for our industry in sustainability, with Chairman & CEO Lawrence Ho leading the drive to achieve total carbon neutrality and zero waste across all our properties by 2030.
