INTERNATIONAL REPORT—IHG and Sands China Ltd. have revealed that The Venetian Macao and The Parisian Macao will become InterContinental Alliance Resorts beginning today. In addition, The Londoner Hotel in Macao will join the alliance when it opens in 2020 following the renovation of the current Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central. IHG and The Venetian Resort Las Vegas also revealed the long-term extension of their alliance. The partnership extends through to 2027 at all five properties.
“Building on the success of our partnership at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, we’re privileged to be extending the InterContinental Alliance to The Venetian Macao, The Parisian Macao and The Londoner Hotel,” said Jolyon Bulley, CEO, Greater China, IHG. “We are now able to offer our IHG Rewards Club members from around the world more than 5,000 luxury hotel rooms and suites in Macao, an exciting global destination.”
Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd., said: “We are delighted to be expanding our strategic alliance with our long-term partner, IHG, not only for our existing portfolio of The Venetian Macao and The Parisian Macao, but also The Londoner Hotel when it opens. This valuable partnership further reinforces our commitment to Macao, and to providing outstanding customer experiences across our properties.”
“IHG has been a valuable partner for us here in Las Vegas and we are thrilled to carry the relationship through to 2027,” said George Markantonis, president/COO, The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. “We are proud to provide IHG Rewards Club members direct access to the Las Vegas Strip and all the beautiful offerings within our resort and the award-winning Sands Expo.”
Alliance resorts enable guests to experience these destinations while enjoying the rewards of being an InterContinental guest. The Venetian Resort was the first-ever InterContinental Alliance Resort when the partnership launched in 2010.
Guests across these five properties—which include approximately 13,000 luxury hotel rooms and suites—will be able to earn IHG Rewards Club points and redeem them for stays at more than 5,600 IHG hotels worldwide. IHG Rewards Club Members will also be able to redeem Reward Nights at all five InterContinental Alliance Resorts.
