Grand Lisboa Palace to increase dining options

Grand Lisboa Palace has announced the opening of two new dining options at the property in September.

The SJM Resorts resort will open Red Bowl, Sichuan and Hunan cuisines restaurant, will open on September 30 and offer hot pot, a la carte dishes and a refined tea programme while, Kulu Kulu, a Japanese Izakaya restaurant serving Robata grill, sushi, ramen, tempura and bento boxes will open on September 22.

Mesa, a contemporary Portuguese restaurant will also extend its service for lunch hours starting on September 30.

Grand Lisboa Palace will progressively launch more dining options in the coming months, including a haute Cantonese restaurant designed by Hong Kong designer Alan Chan, a Shanghainese restaurant, and a Michelin-starred restaurant concept from Italy.

SJM’s HK$39 billion (US$5 billion) property – its first in Cotai – partially opened on July 30 with only 300 of the 1,350 rooms included in the Grand Lisboa Palace Macau Hotel available, plus some restaurants and event space.

The Grand Lisboa Palace includes approximately 1,900 hotel rooms and suites in three hotels — the Grand Lisboa Palace, the Palazzo Versace and the Karl Lagerfeld — as well as facilities for meetings and conferences, shopping, dining, gaming and entertainment.

SJM’s chairman and executive director, Daisy Ho Chiu Fung, previously said that the group would slowly increase the number of rooms according to actual demand, with the second phase will depend on the pandemic progression and travel restrictions.

However, Ho hoped that by the end of this year the property would be able to open up entirely.
