There is certainly no shortage of impressive buildings in Macau. The region has cemented its status as an entertainment hub in Asia and it’s no surprise that the skyline has swelled impressively year after year with trail-blazing buildings constantly being added. This year, we are ecstatic to learn that The Londoner Macao will mark the center of the Cotai Strip bringing the excitement and charm of the Victorian era.
From the same property that brought us the largest spectacular hotel resort in Asia and landmarks inspired by recreations of world-famous landmarks, The Londoner Macao is a unique addition to the vibrant scene of Macau. Every corner has been meticulously designed making The Londoner Macao a true celebration of timeless British design. This project also represents Sands’ latest collaboration with David Beckham representing his first foray into this design field. Mr. Beckham, who is known around the world as a British sporting icon and international businessman has been a Sands Resorts Macao global ambassador for many years already so it comes as no surprise that his presence is revered at the property launch.
Prepare to be transported to England with the exterior facade, modeled on the iconic Palace of Westminster and Houses of Parliament, complete with the 96-meter Elizabeth Tower and spectacular clock face. Upon arrival, the grandeur of the glass-canopied porte-cochere with cobblestone paving evokes the capital’s most famous train station, Victoria Station. The grounds and gardens surrounding The Londoner Macao are patterned on the great London parks and gardens and most especially inspired by those at the royal residence–Kensington Palace.
Everything is majestic with the Crystal Palace brightly lit and the palatial atrium reminiscent of Claridge’s of London. Bask in the setting of one of the greatest in Victorian design and construction of glass and iron. Step into the lobby where guests will find elegant spaces, inspired by the contemporary yet formal drawing rooms of glamorous British manor houses. It embraces visitors with the grandeur and warmth of sumptuous British luxury. Rooted in ancient classical architectural orders which were the inspiration for many of the great estates, manors, and palaces of historic England, staying at this property will no doubt be a multi-sensory experience encompassing luxury and lifestyle. We can’t wait to explore the world-class restaurants, retail offerings, and entertainment!
