The W Macau, a new hotel at Melco Resorts & Entertainment Cotai property Studio City, is scheduled to open on September 8.
According to the opening announcement, the new hotel designed by the late architect Zaha Hadid – who also designed Morpheus at City of Dreams – features 557 guest rooms, including 127 suites, a spa, a gymnasium, an indoor swimming pool, and some 1,100 square meters of event and meeting space.
The property design was said to have been inspired by the “golden age of cinema” and the 1952 Hollywood film ‘Macao’.
The Studio City property has undergone a series of upgrades in recent years, with Melco disbursing a $1.2 billion investment in the property’s Phase 2 expansion.
The first part of Phase 2 of Studio City included a new indoor water park and hotel tower and the 338-suite Epic Tower, both of which opened in April of this year. Apart from the W Macau opening, Phase 2 also includes a six-screen Cineplex, comprising two regular houses and four VIP suites, as well as a state-of-the-art MICE space.
