China – Grand Lisboa Palace set for a phased opening todayBy Phil - 30 July 2021
Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau, the new integrated resort by SJM Resorts, in Cotai, will open its doors to the public in a phased manner at 12 noon on July 30 2021.
The first phase will see the lavish integrated resort welcoming guests to the flagship Grand Lisboa Palace Macau, the largest of its three hotel towers, as well as a variety of enticing dining options and wellness facilities, and stunning event spaces.
It will open with 150 new mass market gaming tables and 1,200 new slots. It will also be able to bring in tables from its other properties if needed.
The casino group said: “SJM has … been authorized by the DICJ to request the transfer of additional gaming tables to Casino Grand Lisboa Palace from other casinos operated by SJM. The DICJ also approved the installation of 1,200 new slot machines with specific limits on the numbers that can be installed and be in operation at the time of opening.”
With luxurious accommodation and outstanding leisure facilities, Grand Lisboa Palace promises to be an experience in grandeur. It celebrates the coming together of the best of two worlds – the enchanting essence of the East and West. Inspired by the monumental European buildings of the Neoclassical to Belle Époque periods and traditional Chinese motifs, the Resort honours the legendary, cross-cultural heritage of Macau.
Ms. Daisy Ho, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SJM, said: “Grand Lisboa Palace has been a much-awaited milestone for us at SJM, and we are thrilled to welcome guests to enjoy our facilities that deliver world-class lifestyle experiences along with a flavour of the East-meets-West cultural uniqueness that is synonymous with Macau. 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.
“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 highly anticipated Grand Lisboa Palace Macau houses the majority of accommodation at the Resort. Each of its 1,350 contemporary, Chinoiserie-inspired rooms and suites pay tribute to the long tradition of Sino-Western cultural exchange in Macau.
