Shun Tak Holdings and Hongkong Land Sign Mandarin Oriental
to Operate 210 room Hotel Planned in Macau
.
HONG KONG, September 30, 2005 – Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group today announced that it has agreed to sign a long term contract to manage its second luxury hotel in Macau, which will be part of the prestigious mixed-use complex soon to be developed on a prime site on the Macau waterfront.  The overall project, which will be owned and developed through a joint venture between Shun Tak Holdings and Hongkong Land, is scheduled to open in 2009. 

The 2.6 million square foot mixed-use project is being developed in the Nape waterfront region and will afford stunning views towards Nam Van Lake, the Macau Tower and Taipa Island.  The overall complex will comprise a residential development, an extensive upscale retail center, serviced apartments and the luxury Mandarin Oriental hotel. The development will be directly connected to the MGM Grand Casino.
Mandarin Oriental’s second property in Macau will be designed as a chic, intimate and contemporary hotel, featuring 210 spacious guestrooms including 42 suites, all of which afford panoramic views of aspects of Macau. The Group’s signature in-room technology and sophisticated entertainment systems will be an integral part of the overall design. In keeping with other locations where the Group has two Mandarin Oriental properties, both Macau hotels will be diverse in style, offering different facets of luxury. They will also appeal to alternative audiences given their different size and design. 

Innovative and stylish dining options will be a key component of the hotel, incorporating an all-day dining venue, a chic signature restaurant, lobby lounge and bar. The hotel will also feature well-defined meeting and function space, including a 4,000 square foot ballroom and four additional fully-functional meeting rooms, all equipped with state-of-the-art technology. For the business traveler, the property will offer a full-service business center. 

The Group’s award-winning spa concept will be a significant component of the hotel, offering holistic rejuvenation and relaxation in a tranquil, meditative setting.  Incorporating 12 private treatment rooms, the Spa will provide a comprehensive range of wellness, beauty and massage programs including some of Mandarin Oriental’s exclusive holistic signature treatments.  The overall 16,000 square foot spa and health facilities will also encompass a fully-equipped gymnasium and a large outdoor swimming pool. 

Edouard Ettedgui, Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental said, “Macau is fast becoming one of Asia’s most popular destinations, and we are delighted to be developing our second property in the enclave. We are very comfortable at the prospect of having two luxury properties here, especially given the complementary nature of the two hotels. We look forward to working with both Shun Tak Holdings and Hongkong Land in creating another world-class Mandarin Oriental experience.”

Dr Ho, Chairman of Shun Tak said, “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Mandarin Oriental and look forward to developing a second award-winning luxury hotel in Macau.”

Nicholas Sallnow-Smith, Chief Executive of Hongkong Land, said, “Mandarin Oriental has a strong track record of success with managing premier hotel properties.   We are confident that this hotel will enhance Macau’s status as a leading destination city in Asia.”

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is the award-winning owner and operator of some of the world’s most prestigious hotels and resorts, currently operating 22 luxury hotels with a further 7 under development in Tokyo (2005), Prague and Riviera Maya, Mexico (2006), Boston and Grand Cayman (2007), Chicago (2008) and Macau (2009).
