Starlight already caters to VIPs.

But now the New Westminster casino says with the launch its new deluxe space, dubbed No. 9, it’s catering to a new group known as “VVIPs.”

We’re talking very, very important people, according to Sam Oan, Starlight’s executive manager for table games.

“We provide six-star customer service,” Oan said.

“We cater to our regular local VIPs and also VVIPs from overseas, and they are the ones that use private salons. It could be celebrities, or the wealthy businessmen that play at high stakes.”

This new space, dubbed No. 9 for the casino’s proximity to the road by the same name, features six private gaming salons, 19 “Squeeze Baccarat” tables and one high-limit blackjack table.

The atmosphere in the lounge aims to be “exclusive and glamorous” as well as relaxed.

A creative use of space with the addition of several intimate private salons addresses the VIP patron’s preference for privacy and confidentiality,” the casino says.

The VIP lounge’s colour scheme, comprised of gold, creams and coral accents sets it off from the rest of the casino, with its charcoal, red and silver palette.

Crystal chandeliers, burnished mahogany surfaces and deep pile carpet aim to give the VIP lounge an extra luxurious look.

And when it comes to food, VIPs also get extra perks, the company says.

“We have an exclusive VIP menu for our VIP guests. They mainly order from that menu. It contains Asian cuisines, as well as western meals. It’s a good variety,” said Oan.
