David Beckham designs a collection of luxurious suites for hotel in China

David Beckham has added yet another string to his illustrious business bow, lending a hand in designing a collection of 14 suites for a £580-per-night luxurious hotel in Macao, dubbed ‘The Las Vegas of the East.’

The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden reports that the footballer has created a series of rooms that will be available to book by invitation-only, with each space boasting his portrait on the wall, as well as his initials monogrammed on the linens. 

Part of The Londoner chain, the Chinese hotel says the suites, ‘reflect the best of the star’s discerning style and sophistication and feature the comforts he enjoys when travelling’.

David’s suites boast a decor inspired by his English background, with swish velvet furnishings, a marble dining table and personalised bedding.

As well as a snap of himself, each room also features a portrait of his wife Victoria showcasing her photography skills, with guests also gaining access to an exclusive bar, as well as a restaurant serving an array of classic British dishes.

In a video released to promote the suites, David can be seen offering his expertise during the design process, insisting the bedrooms should be gold, before two of the designers come in with an array of ideas.

The sportsman seems unimpressed that London should be represented by umbrellas, pie and mash, and cricket, and so takes them into the city in a black taxi.

Attempting to go incognito, the sporting legend can be seen attaching signs saying ‘To Macao’ in various areas, including the taxi, a market and the window of an English pub, before slyly leaving the two designers at the bar, to the bewilderment of onlookers. 

A suite at The Londoner in Macao can cost between £575 (HK$6098) and £599.13 (HK$6348) for two people, with their typical Louis Suite spread over 807 sq. ft. with a separate living room, a deluxe marble bathroom with a decor inspired by the chain’s regal British roots.

Meanwhile the hotel’s Victoria Suite boasts all the same amenities, but includes two double beds as opposed to one king-sized bed for guests to enjoy.

The suites are being promoted as more desirable than the Windsor ones, which cost £756 per night.  

Windsor Suites boast their own separate living room and dining area, and ‘feature contemporary interpretations of classic British, with all the modern comforts, accented with a mindfully selected art collection.’

Along with a Victorian-style bathtub with bespoke bath amenities, each suite also features a menu of pillows, a British themed breakfast for guests to enjoy in-suite, and an artisan minibar cabinet.

And while David’s suites are being branded the height of luxury, the Londoner’s prices are a far cry from some of British capital’s top hotels.

For example, a junior suite at The Savoy for two people costing between £1,197 and £1,556 per night, while their top booking, a personality King Suite with a panoramic river view, costing an eye-watering £3,907 per night.

Elsewhere, an executive suite at the legendary Ritz hotel has prices beginning at £1,675 per night, and according to the hotel’s website, ‘each suite has been elegantly designed with a unique flourish to ensure guests cannot wait to sink into its comfy sofas after an exciting day of sightseeing or shopping in London’s world-famous shopping districts.’

Deluxe suites begin at £2,175 per night, and each ‘features a beautifully decorated bedroom in signature Ritz Louis XVI style, an elegant and generous sitting room, and a large marble bathroom.’

The Dorchester boastes suites ranging from £1,095 to £4,465, with the top option being the self-titled Dorchester Suite, which boasts an ‘English residential-style interior.’

When compared to some of the East’s other accomodations, The Londoner can be viewed as downright frugal, with a Ritz Carlton Suite at Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong costing a jaw-dropping £14,600 per night.

The room includes 270-degree views of Victoria Harbour and spans 3,930 square feet, as well as mongrammed pillows and bathrobes designed especially for each guest.

Macau was originally used only by the Portuguese community – and was a colony until 1999, before being handed back to China, the neighbouring state. 

The result is a blend of Oriental and European cultures, with the ruined of 17th century St Paul’s Church – destroyed by fire in 1835 – is close to Chinese temples. 

Visitors can dine on Cantonese dumplings or Portuguese cod balls and gaze at the historic centre of Macau, a Unesco world heritage site, which ranks as the finest example of European architecture on Chinese soil.

Given his vast array of business ventures, it’s no surprise David was reported to be splashing out on a £5million 93.5ft superyacht, named Seven, last month.

It was reported that David had ‘treated himself’ to the the luxury vessel which he helped design after being inspired by his maritime jaunts with Sir Elton John and David Furnish – who often holiday at sea.  

In the summer, David was spotted at an Italian shipyard Ferretti’s HQ in Forli where he perused the yachts and now the footballer is enjoying his new purchase with his wife and in-laws.

A source told The Sun last month: ‘David had a look around some yachts in the summer, and decided to treat himself. He helped design the boat himself, and has been incredibly hands-on with everything.  

‘It’s not an oligarch-style super-yacht, but it’s still pretty plush by anyone’s standards. He was inspired after holidaying with Elton and David on their boat – and loves life on the water.

‘There will be an area for the kids to snorkel, and the boat will be a brilliant base for the whole Beckham clan to have magical holidays abroad.’ 

David proudly named his vessel after his iconic shirt number he wore for six years while playing for Manchester United, he also wore the number seven for international games for England.

That's cheap! When compared to some of the East's other accomodations, The Londoner (bathroom pictured) can be viewed as downright frugal, with a Ritz Carlton Suite at Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong costing a jaw-dropping £14,600 per night
