American hospitality chain Marriott has announced that it has signed an agreement with Melco Resorts & Entertainment to open Macau’s first W Hotel.

Situated in the heart of Cotai, W Macau – Studio City will serve as the buzzing centerpiece 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, scheduled to open in December 2022, expects to feature 557 guestrooms, including 127 suites and wellness facilities, a spa, fitness center, 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 meters of event and meeting space.

Henry Lee, President, Greater China, Marriott International, said:

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. 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.
