The proposed “Mediterranean of Asia”
Weidner Resorts is seeking to work with the Government of Taiwan to build a luxury, integrated residential resort the likes of which the country has never seen before. Billed as the “Mediterranean of Asia,” the vision for the company’s proposed design will mirror the famous port cities of the Mediterranean Ocean yet capture Taiwan’s character, culture, history and heritage. It will be a source of pride for all countrymen and women. The intent will be to create a tourism magnet that is in harmony with the Island’s time-honored traditions allowing visitors a window into its history and culture – one of which is Taiwan’s emerging wine culture.
The proposed project will include all the amenities found at world-class resorts such as 5-star hotels, celebrity chef restaurants, luxury brand retailers, convenient transportation hubs including recreational boating, headline entertainment and professional sports venues, spa and wellness facilities, convention halls and meeting rooms and championship golf courses. It will set a new standard for Taiwan travel and hospitality for generations to come. If selected for such an undertaking, Weidner Resorts would build a world-class integrated resort on par with lavish, upscale integrated resorts that have shifted the travel and tourism paradigms for Macao, Singapore and Taiwan. Weidner Resorts’ executives’ expertise in Asia is displayed not only in the integrated resorts they have led the effort to build, but also through the contributions these resorts have ultimately made to the regional economy and business infrastructure.
- The establishment of a the high-speed passenger ferry fleet linking Hong Kong and Macao;
- The creation of a dedicated purchasing company to procure construction and decorative materials in Asia thereby maximizing local production and economic benefits;
- The building of educational facilities at The Venetian Macao for the University of Macao MBA Program to help local citizens pursue senior management positions in the field of hospitality and destination management.
Weidner Resorts works to draw upon local sources to not only build their developments cost effectively but to maximize the economic benefit to the surrounding community. This multiplier effect not only creates thousands of jobs directly or indirectly through various services and vendors but also increases tax and sales revenues for the local economy. The benefits to the community are vast as Weidner Resorts creates training programs for entry-level employees and management programs for executives – all key attributes to keep Taiwanese citizens filled with pride all the while increasing the country’s gross domestic products and economic indicators.
