Galaxy Entertainment announces new Capella Hotel to open in mid-2025


Macau gaming operator Galaxy Entertainment Group has announced a new partnership with operator Capella Hotels and Resorts to launch its first property in Macau.

According to the press release issued on Tuesday, the hotel is set to open in mid-2025, making Galaxy’s integrated resorts in Macau home to nine hotel brands.

Capella at Galaxy has 17 stories, offering 36 Sky Villas and 57 Suites. The hotel building is designed by the Paris-based firm Moinard Bētaille, reflecting Galaxy’s signature golden characteristics.

The company notes that each Sky Villa features a light-filled balcony with a transparent infinity-edge pool, outdoor lounge, sunroom, and hidden winter garden, providing guests with a serene nature experience year-round.

The villas invite socializing and offer amenities such as a butler’s pantry, a karaoke room with a cigar butler and premium collection, a private cocktail bar, and a games lounge. Suites also feature private plunge pools and balconies with panoramic views of Macau’s architecture.

Francis Lui, Vice Chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group, says that “this collaboration aligns with our strategic growth plan to establish unique flagship properties within the Galaxy Macau integrated resort and beyond”.

“We are honored that the globally acclaimed Capella Hotels and Resorts has chosen to partner with us, enabling the world’s most discerning guests to forge new and authentic connections with Macau – a global arts and entertainment hub with a rich cultural history and gateway to the Greater Bay Area,” he adds.

Earlier last year, Galaxy Entertainment added Raffles Macau, Andaz Macau, and the Galaxy International Convention Center (GICC).

According to the previous investment memo from financial services group Jefferies, Galaxy Entertainment was looking to open Galaxy Macau Phase 4 in 2026 and revised down the expansion project’s room inventory by some 900 hotel rooms.

Phase 4 originally aimed to add 2,500 more rooms, bringing the total capacity of the Cotai integrated resort to 7,500. However, Jefferies reported that this plan has been adjusted, with the number of rooms reduced to 1,600, focusing instead on creating larger and higher quality accommodations.
