W Macau—Studio City
Melco Resorts & Entertainment, a global developer, owner and operator of integrated resort facilities, has entered into a strategic partnership with Marriott International to bring the W Hotels Worldwide brand to Studio City Phase 2, the new cinematically themed entertainment and leisure destination in Macau.
Scheduled to open together with Studio City Phase 2 in December 2022, W Macau—Studio City will complement Studio City’s other hospitality offerings, which include one of Asia’s largest indoor & outdoor water parks, a six-screen Cineplex, residency show and MICE space.
The hotel expects to have 557 guestrooms, including 127 suites and wellness facilities, a spa, fitness center and indoor swimming pool, as well as two dining venues, the Living Room (the W brand’s signature lobby) and WOOBAR. Also on-site will be a W Sound Suite, the brand’s signature suite with an on-site recording studio, and 11,840 sq. ft. (1,100 sq. m.) of event and meeting space.
