eTN Staff Writer  Feb 12, 2009

MACAO - The MaloClinicSPA is set to open in mid-2009 at The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel. The center will offer a comprehensive array of world-class medical treatments, spa services, and wellness programs.

Owned and managed by Lisboa-based MALO CLINIC Health & Wellness Group, the MaloClinicSPA aims to offer an integrative, all-inclusive approach to complete wellness, covering seven professional areas - oral rehabilitation & dental cosmetic, preventive & curative medical care, spa, total beauty, cosmetic anti-ageing, leisure & fitness, and life-long wellness. Treatments will be developed and delivered by a team of the highest-trained doctors and healthcare professionals in a first-class, healthy, and comfortable environment.

"It is a brand new concept in Asia Pacific, marking the future of health and wellness," said Dr. Paulo Malo, president of Malo Clinic Health & Wellness Group. "The MaloClinicSPA merges diagnostic and clinical services with spa treatments and wellness care all under one roof. We aim to provide guests the highest-quality wellness service to address their individual needs in a trusted, relaxing spa environment."

"All the amazing offerings at The Venetian Macao make it not only the first fully integrated resort in Macao, they make the building the first of its kind anywhere in Asia," said Mr. Stephen Weaver, president - Asian region, Las Vegas Sands Corp. "The MaloClinicSPA represents a significant and important addition to The Venetian and Cotai Strip, [and] we are truly excited about our partnership with Dr. Malo and look forward to the opening of the MaloClinicSPA."

Measuring 85,000 square-feet, the MaloClinicSPA will consist of four key areas - the clinic, the spa, the beauty salon, and a leisure and fitness area. A multi-disciplinary fleet of over 50 medical doctors and licensed healthcare professionals (including dentists, clinical and traditional medical doctors, pharmacists, lab specialists), and 100 wellness therapists (spa therapists, physiotherapists, public health specialists, psychologists, nutritionists, sports & fitness specialists) are being recruited from Asia, Europe, and America.

The MaloClinicSPA will be opened in two stages, with the entire facility scheduled to be in full operation by late summer 2009. The spa and the beauty salon will open first in May, followed by the clinic.

The MaloClinicSPA at the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel will represent Malo's first foray into Asia. "We are thrilled with the potential in Asia, and the opening of this facility represents our foothold into this dynamic market," added Malo.
