Melco China Resorts tops out first phase of Yabuli Resort vacation homes

YABULI, China, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Melco China Resorts (Holding) Limited (TSXV: MCG) ("Melco China Resorts", "MCR" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has topped out the first 71 homes at its Yabuli Resort.

"We are very excited that we have been able to progress the construction of these exceptional vacation homes," commented Graham Kwan, CEO of MCR.

These homes are the first of their kind being offered in China and we anticipate interest will build as we move through our first full ski season at Yabuli with all of our new, first class amenities and resort facilities."

In February 2009, MCR's Yabuli Resort was awarded Best Resort Makeover in all of Asia by TIME Magazine following the completion of the new hotels, spa, dining and ski facilities at the Yabuli Resort at the beginning of this year. The resort vacation homes are sited as premier slope side accommodations and have direct access to all of the resort's new amenities. Homes average 275 square metres (3,000 square feet), over three levels, with both three and four bedroom configurations, European kitchens, open plan living and dining areas, and expansive windows and decks overlooking the resort.
