In a statement, Daisy Ho expressed her pride and privilege in bringing The Karl Lagerfeld Macau to the city, which is a testament to the ultimate luxury and uniqueness of the Grand Lisboa Palace, the first integrated resort to introduce a fashion hotel concept to Macau’s hospitality scene.
She further added that the rebound of tourism to Macau since the beginning of this year has been strong, and she is confident that the world’s first unique hotel named and designed by the late Mr. Karl Lagerfeld will become Macau’s signature attraction and destination for both local and international travelers.

He added that Karl often spoke about his fascination for Chinese culture and had seamlessly combined elements from both East and West with his unique style and creative expression. In Karl’s own words, let’s “embrace the present and invent the future.”
