The first phase of The Londoner Macao officially opens on 8 February, according to an announcement by its developer. The British-themed reimagining of the Sands Cotai Central integrated resort will feature all-suite accommodation at The Londoner Hotel, dining options, interactive London-themed attractions and a light-filled atrium called the Crystal Palace.
The resort’s owner, Sands China Ltd, invested about US$2 billion (MOP16 billion) in The Londoner Macao. It will continue opening new attractions at the property in Cotai throughout 2021.
The two new all-suite hotels – The Londoner Hotel, with about 600 suites, and Londoner Court, opening later in 2021 – alongside existing hotels Conrad Macao, Sheraton Grand Macao and The St. Regis Macao bring The Londoner Macao’s room inventory to more than 6,000 guestrooms.
The Londoner Hotel includes a collaboration with former England international footballer David Beckham and interior design firm David Collins Studio to create the Suites by David Beckham. The 14 Suites by David Beckham across the two top floors of The Londoner Hotel capture the essence of a high-end London home and will launch later this year.
The 6,000-seat multipurpose Londoner Arena will strengthen Macao’s entertainment and meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) offering. The arena will host big conferences as well as high-profile sporting events and international concerts. A 1,700-seat Londoner Theatre will house performances of all kinds.
Among the offerings for tourists at the revamped development are the Shoppes at Londoner, a rebranded and expanded mall with more than 150 fashion and lifestyle boutiques and stores. Coming attractions later in 2021 include replicas of the imposing Houses of Parliament facade and of Elizabeth Tower, known as Big Ben.
Once inside the property, the Crystal Palace stages the 6-minute Changing of The Guard, a visual performance delivered several times daily by more than 20 artists. The spectacle will launch later this year with special effects and music that recreate the London must-see.
The Londoner Macao will also offer a range of new dining options, featuring British, Asian and international dining experiences, from London-inspired restaurants to celebrity chef dining outlets, and favourites widely popularised on the Internet.
“Our investment in The Londoner Macao is a clear signal that we believe Macao’s future as one of the world’s most important leisure and business destinations remains on course,” said Robert Goldstein, President and Chief Operating Officer of Sands China’s majority shareholder, Las Vegas Sands Corp.
