David Beckham to Help Design Suites for The Londoner Macao

Sands China has unveiled details about The Londoner Macao, the British-themed reimagining of the company's existing Sands Cotai Central Cotai Strip integrated resort.

The new project will open progressively over 2020 and 2021.

The Londoner Macao will incorporate four hotel brands: the new The 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.

Details of The Londoner Macao project were unveiled at The Venetian Macao by Robert Goldstein, President and Chief Operating Officer of Las Vegas Sands (centre), Dr. Wilfred Wong, President of Sands China Ltd.

"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."

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.

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.

More than 20 dining options will include several new restaurant concepts such as an authentic British style gastropub by Gordon Ramsay and a new Thai restaurant- The Mews.

 In addition guests and visitors will be able to enjoy 200 stores at Shoppes at The Londoner (previously Shoppes at Cotai Central), 34,300 square metres of meeting and convention space, three spas and four health clubs.

New entertainment at The Londoner Macao will include a whole-body, fully immersive live virtual reality experience suitable for all ages. In addition, visitors can also enjoy British-themed Streetmosphere shows such as the famous Changing of the Guards and daily retail parades featuring much-loved characters from British history, culture and literature.

When fully completed, the integrated resort will also offer a new 6,000 seat arena versatile enough to accommodate everything from live entertainment to popular sporting events and conferences.

David Beckham said, "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."
