June 25, 2019 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Morpheus by Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited has become the first in Macau to win a Prix Versailles regional award. Honored with the prestigious architecture and design accolade at Prix Versailles 2019 for Central and Northeast Asia in the Hotels category, Morpheus is the world’s first free-form exoskeleton high-rise designed by the late Dame Zaha Hadid. The Prix Versailles celebrates inspiration, progress and inclusion with the mission to transform architecture and design into a tool for sustainable ecological, societal and cultural development. The continental winners including Morpheus were selected by an independent jury. The awards’ Worldwide Finale will be held at its discerned headquarters at UNESCO, Paris on September 12, 2019.

Morpheus is the latest ultra-luxury, USD 1.1 billion hotel project to open at Melco’s flagship integrated resort, City of Dreams Macau. This achievement follows Morpheus being hailed as one of the World’s Greatest Places 2018 last year by TIME Magazine, just two months after its opening, and being named Building of the Year 2019 by ArchDaily, the world’s most visited architecture website. More recently, Morpheus won Best Hotel Architecture & Best New Hotel Construction & Design in Macau at the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2019.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “We are delighted that Morpheus has been granted the esteemed Prix Versailles 2019 award in acknowledgement of the hotel’s architectural and design excellence. We thank the judges for recognizing our devotion towards sustainable ecological, societal and cultural development, further reinforcing Melco’s position as a global premium brand that goes beyond gaming and raises the bar in luxury hospitality. We thank and congratulate our collaborators including the late Dame Zaha Hadid and her talented team who contribute to the continued success and achievements of Morpheus at City of Dreams. Melco strives to continue developing iconic world-firsts for both Macau and beyond.”
