Expected to open in late summer 2016, THE 13 in Macau will arguably be the most luxurious hotel ever built
A development by Louis XIII Holding Limited, the hotel will comprise 200 villas (large suites) with nearly 100% of the design details being bespoke for THE 13. Entry-level accomodation, Villa du Comte, each measures gross floor area of approximately 2,000 sq-f while 31 villas are even larger, topping out at a monumental 30,000 sq-f for the Villa de Stephen.
"As the business and the brand have developed, we felt that the name 'THE 13' most accurately reflected our Macau hotel's combination of Baroque inspiration and contemporary accents. Our brand represents a unique vision of a global luxury lifestyle based on strong bespoke traditions while embracing modern elements that enhance these traditions," explained Stephen Hung, co-chairman, and the creative force behind the interiors.
The Villa du Comte is a split-level, one-bedroom villa that includes a private elevator lobby, butler service, a Roman bath and stained-glass and marble bathroom. The décor combines floor-to-ceiling baroque details and period artworks contrasted with surprising modern elements woven together through exceptional craftsmanship to create a romantic environment. To complement the Baroque setting, Mr. Hung created, together with leading artisans, a glittering series of faceted chrome furniture for the living room.
