The Karl Lagerfeld Macau, housed within the Grand Lisboa Palace Resort, is the new exclusive and lavish hotel consisting of 271 rooms designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld and expresses his incomparable creative vision.
SJM Resorts’ Karl Lagerfeld Macau
Set to open in June, the five-star location represents the essence and appeal of the legendary designer who once helmed the fashion houses of Chanel, Chloé and Fendi as well as his own eponymous brand, in which he created an extraordinary dance between exquisite refinement and rock-chic in Asia’s gambling mecca that was once a Portuguese colony.
Combining extraordinary interiors and unparalleled hospitality, the tower is the only hotel in the world entirely designed by Karl Lagerfeld, who began work on the interiors before his passing in February 2019. Every single element of the hotel expresses his unparalleled creativity, from the extravagant furnishings in the rooms to the large-scale installations and even the smallest details, such as bathrobes and bed linens.
An Exclusive Entry Into Lagerfeld’s Distinctive Aesthetics
The concept, owned by SJM Resorts S.A., will be debut with a series of celebratory events spread over several days, opening its doors to enter a world of iconic Lagerfeld enveloped in his distinctive aesthetics.
The hotel’s multi-sensory experience includes 271 breathtaking guest rooms, the Mesa Restaurant, featuring the gastronomic delights of award-winning chef José Avillez, a spectacular Book Lounge with 4,000 books carefully selected by the designer’s 7L bookshop, and a spa and wellness center with indoor and outdoor pools, all conceived by the great master of fashion.
Karl Lagerfeld’s design concept that exudes an embodiment of elegance was inspired by a sophisticated take on modern Chinoiserie combined with traditional craftsmanship, in which bold colors and patterns meet sartorial silhouettes.
In each of the 271 rooms and suites, influences of classic Chinese design and contemporary Western aesthetics are recognizable: custom-created bed heads are inspired by some auspicious Chinese coins symbolizing good fortune, while porcelain vases were handmade in Jingdezhen and circular room dividers recall traditional Chinese moon doors. A testament to Karl Lagerfeld’s passion for collaborations, commissioned furnishings include fine sculptures by Dutch artist Marcel Wanders and French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel, and Terzani chandeliers.
