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.

Time to Unwind

I recently returned from my second annual golf trip to Kiawah Island, where we enjoyed fantastic weather. Upon arrival, the group met for lunch at The Ryder Cup Bar, located at The Ocean Course, one of the top-ranked courses in the country. Luckily, we were not playing that day, as the wind whipped up and brought unscheduled douses of rain. As one of the caddies told me, wind gusts of 35 mph made the course unplayable. But some players braved the conditions as we sat comfortably inside enjoying our first lunch of the trip while chairs cascaded outside and players tried to keep their shots on track.
