Integrated destination resort Galaxy Macau has celebrated its grand opening, and now is anticipated to receive between 30,000 and 40,000 guests per day.
Galaxy's Banyan Tree Macau, Hotel Okura Macau and Galaxy Hotel offer a total of 2,200 five-star rooms, suites and villas, accounting for nearly 12 percent of Macau’s room total. The resort's Grand Resort Deck features a 350-ton, white-sand beach that frames a 4,000-square-meter skytop wave pool, which they say is the world’s largest. The hotels offer more than a dozen function rooms and a grand ballroom, with sizes up to 15,000 square feet.
The resort also features more than 50 international food and beverage outlets and ample in-house entertainment options, including the soon-to-open, "ultra-exclusive" China Rouge, a hybrid private membership club, performance theatre, bar and restaurant intended to evoke a modern vision of 1930s Shanghai. A nine-screen, 3D cinema will open later this year.
“Galaxy Entertainment Group is committed to the local economy by helping transform Macau into a diversified global tourism and entertainment hub," said Dr Lui Che Woo, founder and chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group. "By integrating traditional Asian culture with Western management style, we have created a business model with ‘World Class, Asian Heart’ that will drive the success of our signature property, Galaxy Macau, and help realize Macau’s vast potential as a tourism destination."
