Galaxy Entertainment Group has partnered with Accor to
bring the legendary Raffles brand to Macau.
Regarded by many as one of the most luxurious
hotels in the world, the first Raffles Hotel opened in Singapore
in 1887. In recent years, the iconic brand has expanded to Paris,
Istanbul, Dubai, Warsaw, Jakarta, Seychelles, Shenzhen and seven
other world-renowned destinations.
Queen Elizabeth II, Charlie Chaplin,
Elizabeth Taylor and many more illustrious celebrities who have
stayed with Raffles over the years, add even more color to the
legend of the brand.
The next chapter in the brand’s history will see
Raffles expand to Macau. Scheduled to open the second half of 2021, the
450-suite Raffles at Galaxy Macau will be housed in a stunning architectural
landmark featuring a glass airbridge connecting the two towers on
The design of each suite draws inspiration from a
modern palazzo, with a selection of suites even featuring their
own private pools and gardens, and also a small number of unique
loft suites featuring double-storey windows.
Raffles at Galaxy Macau will
turn its guestrooms into a multi-usage canvas – with Samsung The
Frame Hospitality in every room, switching from globally curated
art to in-room entertainment features with just one click.
Mr. Gary Rosen, Chief Executive Officer with Accor
Greater China, 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, Macau 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.”
Galaxy Entertainment Group has one of the largest
collections of luxury hotels in Macau – StarWorld Hotel, Banyan
Tree Macau, Galaxy Hotel, Hotel Okura Macau, JW Marriott Hotel
Macau, The Ritz-Carlton, Macau, Broadway Hotel, and Andaz Macau
which will also be unveiled in the second half of 2021.
