MARRIOTT’S W brand is on its way to Macau to be the centrepiece hotel in the second phase of Melco’s Studio City.
W Macau – Studio City is scheduled to open in December 2022 in the Cotai resort after the signing of an agreement between Marriott International and Melco Resorts & Entertainment.
Indoor and outdoor water parks, cineplexes and 1,100 square metres of event and meeting space with state-of-the-art conference facilities are planned for Studio City Phase 2.
W Macau – Studio City is expected to feature 557 guestrooms, including 127 suites and wellness facilities, a spa, fitness centre, an indoor swimming pool and the Woobar. The hotel is also set to include two destination dining venues – one featuring international cuisine with an Asian twist and another offering Chinese and Portuguese dishes.
The hotel is also expected to feature a W Sound Suite, the brand’s signature onsite recording studio, which is set to be the brand’s first in the Greater China region.
“Macau’s super-charged energy and unique identity as an entertainment hub, together with its mix of Eastern and Western culture, makes it a natural fit for W Hotels,” said Henry Lee, President, Greater China, Marriott International. “In line with Marriott International’s ‘Brand + Destination’ development strategy, we are excited to work together with Melco Resorts & Entertainment to introduce W Macau – Studio City and bring the brand’s luxury lifestyle to Macau.”
David Sisk, chief operating officer of Macau Resorts at Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “W Hotels is without a doubt one of the world’s most iconic luxury lifestyle brands, and we expect the hotel to elevate Studio City’s hospitality offerings to a new level. Together we look forward to bringing new experiences to our guests and further strengthen Macau’s proposition as a world-class leisure destination.”
Marriott International currently operates nine properties and residences under the W Hotels brand across Greater China. W Macau – Studio City is anticipated to mark the brand’s tenth property in Greater China.
