Last week Macau lifted the curtain on The 13, a Baroque-inspired palace which is being billed as the most luxurious hotel in the world.
Set to open this summer, the hotel is complete with 200 opulent suites which range from between 2,000 to 30,000 square-feet in size.
The hotel is the latest project by flamboyant Chinese billionaire Stephen Hung, who clearly is not bothered by the negative connotations that the number 13 might have in a gambling town.
According to Bazaar, 24-hour butler service will be offered to all guests and a fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms will be on hand to chauffeur guests between Macau’s high-end casinos, restaurants and the airport.
Hung made headlines back in 2014 when he placed the largest ever order for Rolls-Royce cars, putting down $20 million to buy a fleet of 30 customized Phantoms for the hotel.
The hotel is lathered in gold and makes extensive use of neoclassical columns and other Baroque-era architectural features. Each room reportedly comes complete with a marble Roman bath.
While pricing for the hotel has not yet been announced, some analysts are speculating that a one night stay could set you back $100,000.
In a statement, Hung said “This was a labour of love. 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.”
The development comes as Macau begins to rebound from an economic slump caused by Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption drive which has seen casino revenues plummet since their peak in 2013. Last year the city’s economy contracted by 20 percent.
