London hits Macao: Spend it like Beckham

David Beckham was a very good footballer - but I had no idea his skills included interior design.


No matter. Celebrity sells and Sands China Ltd has said the former Manchester United star  styled some of the suites at lavish The Londoner Macao resort, which will open in early 2021.

The all-suite Londoner Hotel is accepting bookings from January and phase one of the US$2 billion project includes the Crystal Palace atrium, dining venues and various London-themed attractions.

The hotel includes a level of accommodation branded 'Suites by David Beckham', who is a global ambassador for the resort.

"I am excited for the launch of the first phase of The Londoner Macao and I hope guests will enjoy the London elements that are close to me," Beckham said.

"It has been amazing working with the Sands team to create the first-ever Suites by David Beckham."

The building fa├žade will be a re-creation of the Houses of Parliament, including a mini Big Ben clock.

Amenities will include a new 6,000-seat theatre, a British-themed restaurant called Churchill's Table and a Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill.

Themed elements include a Changing of The Guard show, a full-size Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain, an interactive 'Black Cab Escape' attraction and a five-metre red telephone box.

"Our investment in The Londoner Macao is a clear signal that we believe Macao's future as one of the world's most important leisure and business destinations remains on course," said Robert Goldstein, president and COO of Las Vegas Sands.

The Londoner Macao is a top to bottom conversion of the former Sands Cotai Central and is the third themed resort complex after The Venetian Macao and The Parisian Macao.
