Suites bend him like Beckham
MACAO, September 20, 2021: We have to admit that we didn’t pair football star David Beckham with the hotel suite designs, but the suites at the brand new The Londoner hotel in Macau have his signature and scored the winning goal to be named ‘Best Hotel Suite in Asia-Pacific’ at the recent International Hotel & Property Awards 2021.
Occupying the top two floors of the Londoner Hotel, 14 “David Beckham Suites” were launched earlier in 2021 in collaboration with Sands Resorts Macau’s global ambassador David Beckham and leading London interior design firm David Collins Studio.
Beckham shares its authentic design aesthetic and invites guests to enjoy a luxurious stay with a range of exclusive experiences.
Sands China President Wilfred Wong said: “We are very grateful to have been honored with this prestigious design award. We were fortunate to benefit from David’s impeccable style and taste in the design of the suites. Guests will literally be able to step into its luxurious lifestyle, immerse themselves in the celebrity experience.
Beckham added, “I have been delighted to have the opportunity to create suites with luxury and comfort as a priority, as well as to collaborate with such amazing teams. It has been a great project to work on… I can’t wait to visit them and see them for myself.
The 113 to 298 m² suites reflect the best of the British star’s discerning style and feature all the comforts he appreciates when traveling. Divided into two distinct schemes of navy blue and British racing green, Beckham’s favorite colors, they contain subtle references to his renowned athletic career, personal style and interests – football, photography, tailoring and male grooming.
The larger of the suites has a small whiskey and karaoke bar, inspired by Beckham’s interest in whiskey and cut crystal glasses, and incorporates features from some of David’s most renowned London hospitality projects Collins Studio, including Connaught Bar and Claridge’s Bar.
The International Hotel & Property Awards are organized to identify and showcase global design excellence. Hosted by design et al, the UK’s leading interior design magazine, voting is open to industry professionals as well as to readers, clients and clients of design et al.
