MACAU’S latest resort begins a phased reopening today as the flagship property of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace welcomes guests.
The 1,350-guest room Grand Lisboa Palace Macau is the first of three hotel towers to open in Cotai on a site located between Wynn Palace and another new opening, Lisboeta Macau.
Grand Lisboa Palace is a project by SJM Holdings and described by company chairman, Daisy Ho, as “a much-awaited milestone for us at SJM”.
“Over the next few months, more facilities will continue to be added to Grand Lisboa Palace’s bouquet of legendary offerings as part of a rolling launch,” Ho said.
“A monumental amount of effort has gone into making this project a reality and it is our aim to diversify Macau’s tourism landscape by bringing in unique elements. We remain committed to redefining hospitality standards in the industry and supporting the Macau SAR Government in its agenda to develop Macau into a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure.”
The property will offer more than 3,800 square metres of conference and event space including The Grand Pavilion Ballroom at 1,400 sqm, which is sunlit, has built-in projection mapping technology and can accommodate 780 guests in round-table banquets or 1,500 in a cocktail setting.
Alongside is the Jardim Secreto outdoor event space with the resort’s European neoclassical architecture as the backdrop.
Further facilities to be launched in phases over the next few months include the towers housing the world’s first Karl Lagerfeld hotel, with interiors fully designed by the late fashion legend, and Asia’s first Palazzo Versace Macau. Both properties will feature 270 rooms and suites each, in addition to their own wellness facilities and restaurants. More dining, leisure and entertainment venues will also be opened gradually.
