New Hotel Raffles at Galaxy Macau Opening to Public from August 16
July 06, 2023
Galaxy Macau's newest addition, Raffles at Galaxy Macau, will open its doors to the public on August 16, with a grand opening expected later in the year.
The city's latest luxury property is the first entry for the legendary Raffles brand and marks the seventh hospitality brand at the sprawling estate Galaxy Macau. With approximately 450 new luxurious suites, Raffles at Galaxy Macau is set to raise the bar for luxury hospitality in the region.
The Raffles brand has been synonymous with luxury hospitality and experiences since 1887, and Raffles at Galaxy Macau seeks to elevate the personalised and memorable guest experience to an unprecedented level through its hallmark butlers.
The property is located on the resort's east promenade, featuring a stunning architectural landmark with a digital canvas and glass bridge connecting the two towers on every floor, offering breathtaking vistas both towards the Macau skyline and over the integrated resort.
Raffles at Galaxy Macau offer highly curated spaces, including suites inspired by the aesthetic of a modern Italian Palace and an in-suite digital art canvas. The Mediterranean-inspired pool terrace and garden elevated over Galaxy Macau's Grand Resort Deck, and the stunning lobby, also add to the property's unique charm.
The Raffles Lounge & Terrace, which takes centre stage in the lobby, offers a tailored take on traditional afternoon tea, as well as all-day comforts. A champagne and oyster bar set beneath a spectacular chandelier features the Macau-appropriate Million Dollar Cocktail, a heritage creation by Raffles bartender Ngiam Tong Boon in 1910 before he invented the famed Singapore Sling five years later. Belvedere, on the 6th floor, offers a sun-lit alternative venue for international delicacies in a unique glass pool house, exclusive to in-house guests.
Looking ahead to the most anticipated highlights of the opening later this year, guests can anticipate some exciting world-class collaborations reflecting the best in culinary and design of the region. Chef and Sushi Master Masaaki Miyakawa, one of the only 5 Three-Star Michelin Sushi Chefs in Japan, will helm a new signature Sushi-Kappo concept and is also developing a Teppan restaurant for Raffles at Galaxy Macau.
As no Raffles would be complete without its own local adaptation of the brand's historic Long Bar, Macau's is set to be a very unexpected and modern take on the 108-year-old heritage gin bar, designed by luminary Joyce Wang. A cocktail curation, including an official Macau Sling, will be created in collaboration with noted 50 Best Bars legend, Antonio Lai.
The launch of Raffles at Galaxy Macau will further solidify Galaxy Macau's reputation as Asia's premier integrated resort and bring another differentiated luxury perspective to Galaxy Macau's growing portfolio and estate. Guests of the Raffles at Galaxy Macau will have easy access to more than 1.1 million square metres of entertainment, shopping, dining, and leisure attractions under one roof.
