Hospitality brands expand in APAC as tourism awakes


As global tourism recovery continues, international hospitality brands are either growing or upgrading their properties to attract tourists planning to visit the Asia-Pacific region. Singapore's Marina Bay Sands (MBS) has started a US$1 billion reinvestment programme for its existing property. The upgrade will be spanning hotel rooms and suites, new F&B offerings and other enhancements.
The new investment will enable MBS to introduce new dining and retail concepts, exciting entertainment programmes, and cutting-edge exhibitions. The resort plans to add more celebrity chefs and new signature restaurants to its fine dining roster.
The reinvestment for MBS is part of Las Vegas Sands' ongoing programme to elevate design and the customer experience across its properties in Singapore and Macau. In Macau, this includes an investment of approximately $2.2 billion in The Londoner Macau, Grand Suites at Four Seasons Macau and The Londoner Court.
Meanwhile, Spanish hospitality brand Meliá Hotels International will soon unveil a new resort in Lombok island in Indonesia.
The new Gran Meliá Lombok Resort & Spa, set to open in 2024, will feature a high-style, low-impact design to weave seamlessly into its tropical surroundings. According to the resort's developers, Lombok enjoyed non-stop connections to cities such as Jakarta, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur before the disruption to global air travel.
But with global travel slowly easing up, this idyllic island's tourism industry is perfectly positioned to thrive in the coming years, the hospitality brand said. Lombok will be served directly from many of Asia's main gateway hubs, creating direct or convenient one-stop connectivity to the rest of the world.
