Andaz hotel to open as part of Galaxy Macau expansion

Galaxy Macau’s planned Cotai expansion will see the addition of the Andaz Macau hotel, due to open in the first half of 2021. 

The hotel will become the first Andaz hotel in the world to be part of an integrated resort, and will be open alongside the Galaxy International Convention Center (GICC), a 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena.

According to Galaxy, Andaz Macau will feature a dedicated check-in lounge catering to large MICE group, over 700 rooms and suites, an Andaz lounge, a bar and restaurant, state-of-the-art fitness center and an indoor pool.

The hotel will also be connected to the Galaxy Macau integrated resort, providing guests with easy access to its 120 dining options, some of which have garnered prestigious accolades such as Michelin Stars, and Broadway Food Street at Broadway Macau which is just a link bridge away from Galaxy Macau.

Galaxy said the addition of the Andaz brand will solidify Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct’s position as Macau’s leading integrated resorts offering the largest collection of luxury hotels – including The Ritz-Carlton Macau, Banyan Tree Macau, JW Marriott Hotel Macau, Hotel Okura Macau, Galaxy Hotel and Broadway Hotel.

“Today’s luxury traveler is increasingly seeking out unique experiences and the opportunity to become truly immersed in a destination’s culture. We are delighted to meet this need with the addition of Andaz Macau to our Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct,” said Mr. Francis Lui, Vice Chairman of GEG. “Macau has many stories to tell and is rich in history and culture. With Andaz Macau, we will work closely with Hyatt to create experiences that truly showcase what is special about this destination, while further contributing to the strength of Macau’s tourism and MICE industries.”

“We are honored to launch the Andaz brand in Macau in our first collaboration with GEG as part of the group’s ever-expanding integrated resorts precinct in the city,” said Mr. David Udell, Group President, Asia-Pacific, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “Global in scale while local in perspective, the Andaz brand is on track to double its footprint in Asia Pacific by the end of 2020 with a strong pipeline across Greater China in destinations such as Macau and Taipei, as well as Sanya, Shenzhen and Xiamen.”

Andaz has properties around the world from New York, London to Shanghai, and most recently to Seoul.

The brand is known for its distinctively local experiences, allowing guests to truly engage with a destination and experience it authentically.

It promises to do the same in Macau, immersing business and leisure guests in a stimulating environment inspired by the city’s colorful heritage that is a blend of Chinese and Portuguese cultures. 

“This will include the vibrant interior design, local tastes and aromas with a twist and experiences that will satiate the curiosity of inquisitive guests,” said Galaxy.
