See the new hotel designed by Zaha Hadid, one of the best architects in the world.
It takes a lot to stand out among the architectural masterpieces of Macau, but even before the Morpheus hotel opened on June 15, it is being considered a landmark. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the 40,000-square-foot, 40-story main hotel is the final chapter in the development of Melco Resorts and Entertainment’s City of Dreams resort, combining casino games, shopping and four other hotels located on the Cotai Strip.
The Morpheus hotel is one of the last projects with which Zaha was intimately involved and brings all the characteristics of the signature style of the deceased architects, as well as other recently completed projects, such as the Generali Tower in Milan.
The unconventional monolithic structure features a free-form exoskeleton rising from ground level, involving a pair of towers and a cathedral-like central atrium to create a gigantic block punctuated by three undulating voids reflecting figure eight.
Inside the building, there are three futuristic celestial bridges connecting the main centers of circulation, providing common spaces for dinners and lounges. There are 780 hotel rooms and the top seven floors house VIP gaming facilities, three pool villas and six duplex villas, plus a semi-enclosed rooftop pool. The California-based Peter Remedios interior design draws on super-yachts with custom designed fabrics and furniture.
There are three restaurants: French chef Alain Ducasse, two stars, and Yi, a contemporary Chinese restaurant serving regional Chinese cuisine in omakase style. Meanwhile, the Spa establishes a new reference for hedonism in Macao, with a Snow Park installation with real snow.
