MACAU, 20 September 2021: We have to admit we hadn’t
associated football star David Beckham with hotel suite designs but the suites
at the newly-opened The Londoner Hotel in Macau have his trademark signature
and scored the winning goal to be named ‘Best Hotel Suite in Asia Pacific’ at
the recent International Hotel & Property Awards 2021.
Occupying the top two floors of The Londoner Hotel, the 14 “Suites by David Beckham” were launched earlier in 2021 in collaboration with the Sands Resorts Macau global ambassador, David Beckham, and leading London interior design firm David Collins Studio.
Beckham shares his authentic design aesthetic and invites
guests to enjoy a luxurious stay with a range of exclusive experiences.
Sands China’s president Wilfred Wong said: “We are very
grateful to have been recognised with this prestigious design award. We were
fortunate to have the benefit of David’s impeccable style and taste in
designing the suites. Guests will be able to literally step into his luxurious
lifestyle, immersing themselves in the celebrity experience.”
Beckham added: “I was thrilled to have the opportunity to create the suites with luxury and comfort as a priority as well as to collaborate with such incredible teams. It has been a great project to work on… I can’t wait to be able to visit and see them for myself.”
The 113 to 298 sqm suites reflect the best of the British
star’s discerning style and feature all the home comforts he enjoys when
travelling. Divided into two distinct schemes of navy blue and British racing
green, Beckham’s favourite colours, they contain subtle references to his
renowned sporting career, personal style and interests – football, photography, tailoring and male
The largest of the suites boasts a small whisky and karaoke
bar, inspired by Beckham’s interest in whisky and cut crystal glasses, and
incorporates features of some of David Collins Studio’s most renowned London
hospitality projects, including The Connaught Bar and Claridge’s Bar.
The International Hotel & Property Awards are held to
identify and highlight global design excellence. Hosted by design et al, the
leading UK interior design magazine, voting is open to industry professionals
as well as design et al readers, clients and customers.
