According to a report from GGRAsia, the firm is already responsible for similar high-roller lounges within some of the former Portuguese enclave’s most prestigious properties including the Wynn Palace Cotai, The Plaza Macao and MGM Cotai and will be debuting its newest at the same time as the first stage of The Londoner Macao opens to the public from February 8. The source detailed that this coming venture, which is to be eponymously branded, is subsequently hoping to take advantage of interest surrounding the city’s upcoming Chinese New Year celebrations so as to get off to a good start.
The Londoner Macao is reportedly a redevelopment of the 6,000-room Sands Cotai Central property run by the local Sands China Limited subsidiary of giant American casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corporation. This $2 billion transformation is purportedly due to see the Cotai Strip venue feature a façade recreating the architecture of the United Kingdom’s Palace of Westminster complex including its Elizabeth Tower complete with the iconic Big Ben clock.
Macau-headquartered Tak Shun Group had reportedly been responsible for a similar Sands Cotai Central VIP gaming club but was last year forced to temporarily suspend this operation owing to a coronavirus-induced drop in business. The firm has now purportedly committed to the new-look The Londoner Macao after earlier proclaiming its desire to maintain operations as the venue completes its ‘phased completion throughout 2020 and 2021.’
