Macau casino resort The Londoner Macao will launch its first phase on 8 February. The announcement came from Sands China Ltd that operates the venue.
The Londoner Macao, previously known as Sands Cotai Central, will open in stages throughout 2021. The whole project reportedly cost close to $1.9bn, a slight reduction from the previously predicted $2.2bn.
The first phase will be launched next month, including the Londoner Hotel, Crystal Palace atrium and new dining options. The venue should also have several interactive London-themed attractions. The following phases will see the opening of Suites by David Beckham, an additional accommodation within the hotel, as well as Londoner Court, a luxury hotel addition. The venue will also have a shopping space known as the Shoppes at Londoner and an entertainment venue called Londoner Arena.
“The entire company is eagerly anticipating the launch of our newest themed destination – The Londoner Macao,” said Sands China president Dr Wilfred Wong. “The success of any of our integrated resorts is directly tied to the dedication of our hard-working team members, who bring our properties to life each day and provide unforgettable experiences and world-class service to our guests and visitors.”
The launch of the first phase coincides with the Chinese New Year, which will be on 12 February; the Chinese New Year holiday period will be from 11 to 17 February, but guests can already book rooms in the Londoner Hotel from 22 January.
