Karl Lagerfeld announced the international opening of The Karl Lagerfeld Macau, a 5-star hotel located at The Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau. Set to open in June, the hotel combines stunning interiors with unrivaled hospitality. The tower is the only hotel in the world wholly designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld. Every detail in the hotel exudes his unparalleled creativity, from extravagant room decor and large-scale installations to small details like bathrobes and bedsheets. The grand opening of the new hotel will feature multiday celebrations in June.

Owned by SJM Resorts S.A., The Karl Lagerfeld Macau is the latest addition to the hospitality group’s array of hotels. The multisensory hotel experience includes 271 rooms; the Mesa Restaurant, featuring delicious bites by award-winning chef José Avillez; a Book Lounge with 4,000 hand-picked books; and a spa and wellness center, including an indoor and outdoor swimming pool.

The late Karl Lagerfeld’s design concept stemmed from a sophisticated reimaging of modern Chinoiserie fused with traditional craftsmanship, bold colors and patterns, all of which meet tailored silhouettes. Each of the 271 rooms showcases influences of classic Chinese design and contemporary Western aesthetics.

For example, the custom-created headboards were inspired by auspicious Chinese coins representing good fortune, porcelain vases were made in Jingdezhen and circular room dividers draw inspiration from traditional Chinese moon gates. Reflecting Karl Lagerfeld’s passion for collaboration, specially commissioned furnishings include exquisite sculptures by Dutch artist Marcel Wanders and French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel, and Terzani chandeliers.

Prior to his passing, Karl Lagefeld worked in a close partnership with SJM on the lavish hotel design for years.

Saudi Arabia Fosters Sustainable, Regenerative Tourism Along the Red Sea

 My first experience of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast now seems like ancient history. It was 1995, and I was visiting my ornithologist cousin and is wife. Getting into the kingdom wasn't easy; I needed sponsorship letters. and a pre-trip interview at the Saudi Arabian Embassy. When I arrived in the country, there was no tourist infrastructure. We toured by SUV ad often slept under the stars. Thus, one morning, we woke up on roll-out mattresses on a Red Sea beach 200 miles from Jeddah.
