Galaxy Entertainment and Accor bring Raffles brand to Macau
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 colour 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 every floor.
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 guest rooms 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.
