Melco Resorts & Entertainment has held an exclusive preview of Morpheus, the new hotel at City of Dreams.
Melco is working closely with the Macau government to obtain all licenses required for the hotel opening, targeting to open its doors to the public on June 15, 2018. Designed by late Dame Zaha Hadid, the USD 1.1 billion iconic landmark is integral to the relaunch of City of Dreams, reinforcing its position as a premium global brand.
Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said: “Morpheus is designed to satisfy the dreams of tomorrow’s most sophisticated international travelers. This architectural masterpiece, the world’s first free-form exoskeleton high-rise, is raising the bar on Macau’s leisure and entertainment scene. The late Dame Zaha Hadid and I started our discussions on Morpheus in 2009 and shared the same vision: to create a new way of expressing contemporary life. I am immensely proud of everyone who worked on making this dream a reality.”
“Morpheus encapsulates our determination to develop the coolest and most luxurious integrated resorts in the world. We are pioneers of innovation, offering our guests the best of the best and truly unique and exhilarating experiences. The design, fixtures and finishes are beautiful and set the stage for one of the most hedonistic hotel experiences.”
