The Londoner Macao opens today

Macau's newest integrated resort is bullish about bringing 'the best of Britain' under one roof.

The Londoner Macao represents the latest collaboration with Sands global ambassador, David Beckham, who worked together with London interior design firm David Collins Studio to create 'Suites by David Beckham'.

The Londoner Macao, the latest integrated resort project developed by Sands China to the tune of US$1.9 billion (MOP15.2 billion), will finally launch today, 8 February.

Kicking off its first-phase launch just ahead of the Lunar New Year, the much-awaited resort will raise the curtain to The Londoner Hotel, Crystal Palace atrium, several dining options and interactive London-themed attractions.

As The Londoner opens progressively throughout 2021, subsequent phrases will see the addition of more offerings, including 14 'Suites by David Beckham' at The Londoner Hotel; the luxury residential-style all-suite hotel Londoner Court; the re-themed Shoppes at Londoner; and Londoner Arena.

As far as destination-themed properties go, The Londoner joins The Venetian and The Parisian, also developed by Sands China.

Sands China president, Wilfred Wong, said in a statement: “London is an iconic city and we anticipate this addition will further raise the profile of Macao while increasing the number of visitors as our other flagship properties have done.”

As well as the new Londoner Hotel (formerly Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central), The Londoner Macao complex will also house existing properties Conrad Macao, Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, and The St. Regis Macao.

Business groups will be able to pick from the combined hotels' offering of more than 150 breakout rooms or smaller meeting rooms, plus three grand ballrooms which can be further configured. 

Planners can also tap on Sands Resorts Macao's ‘More Than Just Meetings’ offer, which features discounts, entertainment and leisure benefits to assist planners in tailoring their events.

New features and attractions

The Green Room, the hotel's main dining area, said to be inspired by the musicals of famous British composers, will surround diners with theatre-related paraphernalia and songs from popular West End performances.

Meanwhile, quintessentially British greeters will be stationed throughout the property— expect to meet a bobby (Victorian-era policeman), a beefeater (Tower of London guard), a punk, or a bowler-hatted London gentleman.

Additional drawcards include Black Cab Escape, a 90-second virtual ride, which takes guests on a tour of Beckham’s favourite spots in London alongside selfie opportunities with the British football star (presumably his virtual form).

London Calling is a 5.2-metre classic British red telephone box where visitors are welcomed to The Londoner Macao by the Queen’s corgi, Londi. 

At Churchill’s Table restaurant, inspired by a classic Victorian food hall, guests may bump into singing bobbies and a king and queen procession. Characters from the famous Alice in Wonderland fairy tale will offer a Wonderland Meet & Greet with guests as they savour the exquisite Mad Hatter Afternoon Tea set.
