After a five year project, the world’s first hotel and spa designed solely by late legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has launched in Macau, on the south coast of China.

Lagerfeld was known for his simplistic yet elegant design approach and dedicated his life to fashion, working with both global fashion houses Chanel and Fendi for more than 35 years.

The Karl Lagerfeld destination was one of the designer’s last projects before he passed away in early 2019 and has been infused with his distinctive sense of style.

Lagerfeld’s creative vision for the spa was to sensitively blend elements of traditional Chinese and European Art Deco design, while also drawing on his passion for the beauty of simplicity.

His signature style is evident throughout the spa through striking black marble and gold mosaic touches.

The spa menu offers treatments powered by science-led spa and beauty brand 111Skin, based in Harley Street, London.

In line with Lagerfeld’s passion for creativity, each spa guest is encouraged to explore their own creative side by using a Lagerfeld-inspired colouring book to help them relax, either after treatments or in relaxation rooms.

The Karl Lagerfeld spa team claims that colouring induces the same state as meditating by soothing a restless mind and encouraging mindfulness, allowing the mind to rest and reach an overall sense of calm.

Local Macau casino concessionaire SJM Resorts has been the driving force behind the 271-room project, acting as operator, owner and developer.

The 20-storey hotel is part of SJM’s HKD39bn (€4.4bn, US$5bn, £3.8bn) integrated Lisboa Palace resort in Cotai, featuring 1,892 rooms spread across three towers, each with its own distinct hotel and spa concepts.

The other two towers encapsulate the recently-opened Grand Lisboa Palace Macau and the upcoming Palazzo Versace Macau respectively – the first destination of its kind in Asia.

The Karl Lagerfeld hotel is the first property to fall under the international hospitality brand Karl Lagerfeld Hotels & Resorts, owned and launched by The Karl Lagerfeld Group back in 2016.

During his career, the German designer was well-known for his love of living in hotels, and also previously provided designs for the Hotel Metropole in Monte Carlo and the Sofitel So Singapore.

Additional facilities at The Karl Lagerfeld hotel include a Technogym-equipped workout space, two dining concepts, a European-style garden for relaxation and an indoor pool.

Wet area specialist Barr + Wray was contracted for the design and layouts of The Karl Lagerfeld’s wet area and mechanical services, while wellness equipment supplier Gharieni was appointed to provide its MO1 spa treatment beds.
