Lisboeta Macau and Sands China Sheraton for quarantine use
Sheraton Grand Macao can now decide how much it will charge to those inbound to Macau.
A novelty is that Sheraton Grand Macao can now decide how much it will charge to those inbound to Macau and choosing to stay at the property under a compulsory 14 days observation period before being allowed into the community.
The use of the facilities of Sheraton Grand Macao was outlined in a Monday announcement by the Macau government. The role of that portion of the hotel will take effect on December 20.
The hotel at the yet-to-open Lisboeta Macau will also be used for medical observation starting December 20. The management of the property will also be able to decide its pricing strategy.
Sheraton Grand Macao and Lisboeta Macau will be the only authorised sites in Macau for visitors to undergo medical quarantine; inbound travellers cannot choose to stay elsewhere.
According to a government estimate, the average daily rate – including three meals – should be around MOP 700, about USD 87.50 based on market prices. Visitors will be able to choose the type of room in which they wish to stay: that can increase the overall cost of their stay.
The borders of m remain closed to visitors coming from outside Greater China. Those using either Mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan region documents to travel, and who have visited Hong Kong or Taiwan 14 days prior to arriving in Macau, must hold a certificate showing a negative result for a Covid-19 nucleic acid test and need to go to a designated hotel for a 14 days quarantine.
Travellers coming from Mainland China – except from areas labelled as of higher risk for Covid-19 – must hold a certificate showing a negative test result for Covid-19 issued within the previous seven days, but do not need to undergo medical observation on arrival.
