Sands China has confirmed that its Londoner Macao property is all set for its grand opening, with the first phase of the reimagined venue coming on Monday 8 February.
Representing and investment of $1.9bn (MOP 15.2bn), The Londoner Macao will open progressively throughout 2021 and strives to offer visitors the best of British history and culture alongside a traditional yet contemporary hospitality experience.
The first phase opening of the integrated resort, a British-themed reimagining of Sands Cotai Central, will unveil the all-suite The Londoner Hotel, a Crystal Palace atrium, new dining options, and interactive London-themed attractions in Q1 2021.
More integrated resort offerings will be introduced in later phases throughout 2021, including Suites by David Beckham, Macao’s first celebrity-designed hotel rooms; Londoner Court, a luxury residential-style all-suite hotel; the rethemed Shoppes at Londoner; and Londoner Arena entertainment venue.
“The entire company is eagerly anticipating the launch of our newest themed destination – The Londoner Macao,” said Dr Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China.
“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.
“These team member rallies are a way for us to energise our opening team and celebrate their hard work and passion. I know they take great pride in the role they play – whether front-of-house or behind the scenes – in making The Londoner Macao an iconic, must-see destination on the Cotai Strip.”
The Londoner Macao’s opening team consists of more than 5,700 team members, with 25 per cent having served the company for at least 10 years, and boast extensive experience opening two or three properties. Approximately 10 per cent have already reached their 15-year milestones.
More than 2,000 Sands China team members this week joined rallies at the Londoner Theatre in preparation of the first phase of launch, where Dr Wong delivered a tribute to chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson who passed away earlier this month.
