Multinational hotel and resort operator, InterContinental Hotels Group, has reportedly announced the signing of a deal that has seen it add a pair of Macau properties from Sands China Limited to its InterContinental Alliance Resorts customer rewards network.
According to a report, the British firm used a Tuesday press release to explain that the eight-year agreement encompasses the 3,000-room, The Parisian Macao, as well as the similarly-sized, The Venetian Macao, and is to immediately involve it offering their guests a range of special benefits previously only available at its own venues.
Las Vegas forerunners:
GGRAsia reported that Hong Kong-listed Sands China Limited is a subsidiary of American casino operator, Las Vegas Sands Corporation, while detailing that this latter firm’s The Venetian Las Vegas and attached The Palazzo Hotel tower are already known to be members of the InterContinental Alliance Resorts scheme in Nevada.
As if this wasn’t enough, InterContinental Hotels Group reportedly stated that Sands China Limited’s coming The Londoner Hotel property is moreover set to become a member of the InterContinental Alliance Resorts program. This 600-key all-suite Cotai Strip property is currently being re-branded from its previous incarnation as the Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central under the $1.35 billion transformation of the giant Sands Cotai Central venue into the new-look The Londoner Macao.
Wilfred Wong Ying Wai, President for Sands China, reportedly expressed delight at signing the deal with InterContinental Hotels Group alongside proclaiming that the ‘valuable partnership’ will allow his firm to ‘further reinforce’ its dedication to Macau and provide ‘outstanding customer experiences across our properties.’
For his part, Jolyon Bulley, Greater China Chief Executive Officer for InterContinental, reportedly proclaimed that the new Macau partnership is to give his firm the ability to reward members at ‘more than 5,000 luxury suites’ and that the pair will soon launch a range of celebratory ‘exclusive accommodation, dining and entertainment packages.’
