Andaz Macau is scheduled to open in the first half of 2021 alongside what is set to be Asia’s most iconic and advanced MICE destination, Galaxy International Convention Center (GICC) and a spectacular events venue, 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena. 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.
Andaz Macau will be connected to the multiple award-winning integrated resort Galaxy Macau™, offering 1.1 million m2 of unique entertainment, shopping with over 200 world renowned luxury brands and leisure attractions. The hotel will also provide guests with easy access to discover and embrace the integrated resort’s 120 dining options, some of which have garnered prestigious accolades such as Michelin Stars, and Broadway Food Street at Broadway MacauTM which is just a link bridge away from Galaxy Macau.
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 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, meaning ‘personal style’ in Hindi, encapsulates the brand’s passion to connect with its guests and to experience the world through their eyes, and also speaks to the uniqueness of the brand’s properties. From New York, London to Shanghai, and most recently to Seoul, Andaz hotels and resorts stimulate the senses through distinctively local experiences, and by allowing guests to truly engage with a destination and experience it authentically, rather than merely visit.
Andaz Macau will bring the distinctive Andaz style to 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.
