    Marriott International has signed an agreement with Melco Resorts & Entertainment to bring the W Hotels Worldwide brand to Macau by the end of the year. W Macau – Studio City is expected to become an iconic addition to the world-class leisure destination through its detail-driven, unexpected design, and signature whatever/whenever service.

    “Macau’s super-charged energy and unique identity as an entertainment hub, together with its mix of Eastern and Western culture, makes it a natural fit for W Hotels,” said Henry Lee, President, Greater China, Marriott International. “In line with Marriott International’s ‘Brand + Destination’ development strategy, we are excited to work together with Melco Resorts & Entertainment to introduce W Macau – Studio City and bring the brand’s luxury lifestyle to Macau.”

    Situated in the heart of Cotai, W Macau – Studio City will serve as the buzzing centrepiece for Studio City Phase 2, a multi-complex development that includes indoor and outdoor water parks, cineplexes and state-of-the-art MICE facilities. W Macau – Studio City expects to shelter 557 guestrooms, including 127 suites and wellness facilities, a spa, fitness centre, and an indoor swimming pool. The hotel is also set to include two destination dining venues – one featuring international cuisine with an Asian twist and another with the finest Chinese and Portuguese dishes. Set to be a first in the Greater China region, W Macau – Studio City is slated to feature a W Sound Suite, the brand’s signature, on-site recording studio as well as a WOOBAR where guests can connect. Additionally, the new hotel will offer 1,100 square metres of event and meeting space.

    “Melco is thrilled to welcome W Hotels to Studio City and Macau,” said Mr David Sisk, Chief Operating Officer, Macau Resorts of Melco Resorts & Entertainment. “W Hotels is without a doubt one of the world’s most iconic luxury lifestyle brands and we expect the hotel to elevate Studio City’s hospitality offerings to a new level. Together we look forward to bringing new experiences to our guests and further strengthen Macau’s proposition as a world-class leisure destination.”

    Marriott International currently operates nine properties and residences under the W Hotels brand across Greater China. W Macau – Studio City is anticipated to mark the brand’s 10th property in Greater China.
