Galaxy’s new Raffles hotel to open this year
Cutting-edge technology and design plus traditional service combine to ramp up the city’s hospitality offerings: there’s even a special Singapore Sling for Macao.
Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) will open a new Raffles hotel by the end of this year, in collaboration with French hospitality company Accor, The Macau Post Daily reported.
The 450-room “Raffles at Galaxy Macau” will be spread between two towers joined by glass air bridges on every floor. The more exclusive suites will feature double-storey windows, private pools and gardens.
The new hotel will star a cohort of butlers, while each of the guestrooms will be furnished with Samsung The Frame Hospitality which can effortlessly switch between artwork and in-room entertainment.
Dining and drinking options will showcase afternoon tea, a specially designed Singapore Sling – Raffles’ iconic cocktail – tailored to Macao, and sumptuous breakfasts at The Glass House, which stands close to the hotel’s infinity pool.
GEG Vice Chairman Francis Lui Yiu Tung said, “The Raffles brand and heritage is perfectly complementary to our strategy of delivering greater, elevated experiences, and true to our ‘World Class, Asian Heart’ mantra. This collaboration with Raffles and Accor in the development of Raffles at Galaxy Macau brings yet another differentiated luxury perspective and dimension in GEG’s growing portfolio and estate. Aside from offering more diversity in our luxury accommodations at Galaxy Macau, we expect it will also raise the bar to new heights throughout the region.”
Accor Greater China CEO Gary Rosen said, “We are incredibly proud to be collaborating with GEG for the Raffles located at Galaxy Macau, the most ultra-luxurious experience in Macau. As a key destination on the global map, Macao is ideal for our next Raffles. The Raffles at Galaxy Macau will invite guests to experience Raffles’ legendary service and impeccable design, offering an oasis of luxury, glamour and adventure in one of the world’s most exciting destinations – it will no doubt become the preferred choice for the most discerning guests.”
