A Triumphant Return
In the glimmering city of Macao, where extravagance knows no bounds, a magnificent transformation has taken place. Formerly known as Sands Cotai Central, The Londoner Macao emerges as a beacon of refined British charm, marking the city's triumphant reopening after the challenges of the pandemic. This grand rebranding celebration, attended by the iconic David Beckham himself with performances from Cantopop star G.E.M, pianist Lang Lang and Mongolian vocalist Ayanga, showcases the commitment of Sands China Ltd. to Macao's vibrant future as a global tourism hub.
With a staggering investment of approximately US$2 billion (MOP 16 billion), The Londoner Macao is an architectural masterpiece that seamlessly blends prestige and playfulness. Its five opulent hotels, including the flagship The Londoner Hotel, offer nearly 6,000 rooms adorned with a British design aesthetic inspired by the nation's rich heritage and contemporary allure. As you step through the majestic glass-covered porte-cochère, reminiscent of London's Victoria Station, and onto the cobbled driveway, the stage is set for an extraordinary British-inspired sojourn.
The Londoner Macao presents an array of essential photo opportunities, transporting you to the heart of London's most iconic landmarks. A life-size replica of the Elizabeth Tower (affectionately known as Big Ben) majestically chimes every hour, while the Crystal Palace atrium captivates with its Victorian-inspired grandeur, featuring a 10-storey-high ceiling adorned with glass, iron, and marble.
Be enchanted by the spectacle of the "Changing of the Guard" ceremony, reimagined with music, LED displays, and special effects, as artists bring to life the splendour of Buckingham Palace. The full-scale reproduction of the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain at Piccadilly Circus adds to the sense of wonder, while the imposing façade, reminiscent of the Palace of Westminster and Houses of Parliament, comes alive in the evenings with the Londoner Light and Sound Spectacular. From red double-decker buses to classic phone booths and black London cabs, every nook and cranny of The Londoner Macao is adorned with British-themed details, paying homage to the diverse tapestry of English culture.
