Macau’s latest luxury development The 13 is promising to be the most opulent hotel ever built with an estimated cost of €1.4 billion. Located in the gambling hub of Cotai, Macau, in China, it is expected to open its solid gold doors any time now.
Baroque-style hotel boasts 200 palatial multi-level villas, an invitation-only L’Atelier offering couture, the only branch of the legendary Paris institution of Michelin 3-star haute cuisine L’Ambroisie and a fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms to chauffeur guests around Macau.
The entry level Villa du Comte spreads over a gross floor area of approximately 2,000 square feet. While the largest, Villa de Stephen, named after Stephen Hung – the co-chairman, is the largest at 30,000 square feet. It is reported to cost around €100,000 to stay at the largest villa at The 13.
The hotel’s thirty custom-made Rolls-Royce Phantoms, will provide guests with chauffeured limousine service and complimentary transfers on arrival and departure. Of the royal fleet, the first two Rolls-Royces are designed with external and internal gold-plated accents and diamond encrusted badges.
“This was a labour of love,” Mr. Hung commented. “The team and I put every ounce of creativity and passion we had into this project to ensure every detail was perfect. Our guests, I believe, will find the result truly remarkable and beyond anything they have previously experienced.”
