SJM makes a splash in Hangzhou
The group’s three Lisboa resorts form the mainstay of a roadshow broadcasting the message that Macao is a safe destination for tourists.
A specially choreographed dance performance – Macao Love Story – wowed spectators at the Macao Week in Hangzhou roadshow.
The dance extravaganza was put together by Sociedade de Jogos de Macau (SJM) as part of its contribution to the government-run promotion – held in Hangzhou’s Hubin Pedestrian Street – to spread the word that Macao is a safe destination for tourists.
SJM’s booth – “Lisboa, Grand Lisboa, Grand Lisboa Palace” – showcased the development of Macao’s iconic Lisboa brand with architectural models of the three properties, giving visitors an opportunity to experience Macao’s East-West heritage while discovering more about the Lisboa brand.
Opened in 1970, Hotel Lisboa was Macao’s first integrated resort and its innovative cylindrical hotel tower remains a city landmark. The architectural design of Grand Lisboa takes the shape of a lotus, Macao’s floral emblem. The hotel is home to seven Michelin stars, and is one of the few in the world to have earned quadruple Forbes Five-Star recognition.
The booth also featured the Grand Lisboa Palace Resort, SJM’s newest integrated resort on Cotai set to open later in 2021. The resort comprises three hotel towers – Grand Lisboa Palace Macau, Asia’s first Palazzo Versace Macau and the only Karl Lagerfeld in the world. The resort features 1,900 rooms and suites, as well as a range of dining, leisure and entertainment facilities, including The Grand Pavilion – Macao’s most palatial venue for staging events and weddings.
The design of the property integrates Chinoiserie aesthetics and European architectural elements, celebrating Macao’s pivotal role in the long history of East-West cultural exchange.
Daisy Ho, chairman of the Board of Directors of SJM, said, “With the support of the Central Government, the anti-pandemic measures of the Macao SAR government, and the joint efforts of the entire community, Macao is now a safe tourist city.
“The Lisboa brand, with a legacy of 50 years, is a pioneer in Macao’s tourism and leisure industry, closely connected with the development of the city. The Grand Lisboa Palace integrated resort, with its East-West theme highlighting Macao’s unique role in Sino-Western cultural exchange for over 400 years, will bring a brand new experience to visitors while supporting Macao’s positioning as a world centre of tourism and leisure.”
