Executives from Sands China have revealed more details about the Londoner Macao, the British-themed reimagining of the company’s existing Sands Cotai Central Cotai Strip integrated resort.
Alongside project ambassador, David Beckham, officials revealed the new project will open progressively over 2020-2021.
Focusing on classic British luxury, the Londoner Macao will incorporate four world-class hotel brands: the new Londoner Hotel (previously Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central), alongside existing properties Conrad Macao, Cotai Central, Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, Cotai Central and The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central.
“We could not be more excited about the development of the Londoner Macao,” said Las Vegas sands president and chief operating officer Robert Goldstein.
“Sands has invested heavily here because we believe wholeheartedly that Macao’s complete arrival as one of the world’s greatest tourism and business destinations is just on the horizon.
“The Venetian and the Parisian have each become must-see destinations on the Cotai Strip and we have every confidence that the Londoner will be every bit their equal.
“The power of these three iconic integrated resorts working in tandem will create a combination of leisure and business tourism amenities unrivalled in Asia and Europe and on par with the success of Las Vegas,” he added.
The Londoner Macao represents Sands’ latest collaboration with David Beckham, who will be working with the interior design team to bring his vision and style to the very exclusive top floor suites at the Londoner Hotel, representing his first foray into this design field.
Beckham, who is known around the world as a British sporting icon, has been a Sands Resorts Macao global ambassador for some time, hence was also the ideal choice when it came to the Londoner Macao.
The Londoner Macao will feature authentic recreations of classic British landmarks, with an exterior facade modelled on the world-famous Palace of Westminster and Houses of Parliament, complete with 96-metre Elizabeth Tower and iconic clock face.
Beckham commented: “London is an incredible city and one that I am proud to call my home.
“To be able to work so closely with the Sands team to bring the elements of London that I love to the city of Macao is a wonderful opportunity.
“Interior design is a real passion for me so to be involved in the design process and help shape this project is another important step in our long-standing partnership with Sands Resorts Macao.
“I can’t wait to welcome everyone to come and experience what we are creating here – a little bit of London in Macao.”
