Travel News Asia Monday, 4 June 2007

A mammoth 968-room Marriott-branded hotel will be part of the monumental Macau Studio City with entertainment, retail, gaming and studios complex taking shape in Macau, China. This hotel will open under a management agreement reached with East Asia-Televisao Por Satellite Limitada.

Scheduled to open in 2009, the Macau Studio City Marriott Hotel will be situated in a 30-storey tower block as part of the 4-million-square-foot, mixed-use development known as Macau Studio City. The complex is located on a 33-acre site along the Cotai Strip, the main thoroughfare of Cotai, Macau, with a direct link to the new Lotus Bridge immigration checkpoint. Close by is the Orient Golf Course.

In addition to the Macau Studio City Marriott Hotel, phase one of the complex will include three more components; a 2,300-seat theater; a 200,000-square-foot casino, a 55,000-square-foot exhibition center; 1 million square feet of retail space; and a stand-alone, state-of-the-art television and film production facility.

We are thrilled to be part of this exciting development which is bringing Las Vegas-style entertainment and tourism to Macau, said Ed Fuller, president & managing director, international lodging for Marriott International. The range and scope of facilities the Macau Studio City complex will offer, coupled with our stellar reputation in the global MICE market, give the Macau Studio City Marriott Hotel enormous potential for success. We have no doubt that Macau will be the next hot destination for incentive and leisure travelers.

Ambrose Cheung, co-chief executive officer of Macau Studio City, said, The Marriott hotel will be a key member of Macau Studio City. It complements our vision of having only world-class operators to provide truly unique and memorable experiences for visitors in Macau.

Accommodations at the Macau Studio City Marriott Hotel will feature over-sized guestrooms offering bathrooms with separate shower and tub; state-of-the-art, in-room technology; and Marriotts signature bed and bath linens.

Additionally, the Macau Studio City Marriott Hotel will offer the services of a business center, retail shopping and shuttle service to the Macau ferry terminal and airport.

For dining and entertainment, the hotel will have an all-day casual restaurant, a specialty restaurant, a lobby lounge and bar and a pool bar.
