The initial plans
In the month of October 2018, the plans for the one of a kind Macau-themed integrated resort was announced. The initial plan for the resort was to pay homage to ‘old Macau’. Channeling inspiration from iconic buildings etched into the collective memory of the original of Macau locals which includes New Central Hotel, Hotel Estoril, floating casino Macau Palace.
Mr. Arnaldo Ho, Founder of Lisboeta, also the director of MTPR made it known in his presentation at the media conference “In recent years, we have seen many beautiful, modern resorts and attractions with all kinds of themes developed on Cotai. However, there is little to be seen of the original, authentic Macau which is characterized by the many architectural icons developed by my father, Dr. Stanley Ho. Therefore, my idea behind the Lisboeta is not only to evoke nostalgia for the old times, but also revitalize those memories of Macau with fresh new concepts.
“The significance of the name Lisboeta, which means ‘the citizens of Lisboa’ in English, is twofold: it represents the deep bond between Lisboa and Macau, as well as the close ties between our brand and our patrons. Likewise, the Lisboeta is a project dedicated to the Macau people, who manifest the culture and heritage of this city. The integrated resort is set to open in 2020 as a premier integrated entertainment and leisure resort in Macau and regionally.”
