Galaxy Macau Unveils Its Forthcoming Andaz Macau To Open In September A Vibrant New Lifestyle Concept Rooted In Local Art And Culture

10 Aug 2023

(Macau SAR, August 10, 2023) – Galaxy Macau™, in collaboration with Hyatt, today unveiled details of its all-new Andaz hotel, including the opening date, which is scheduled to launch on September 15, with an exclusive opening offer. Featuring more than 700 uniquely appointed rooms and suites, Andaz Macau will be the brand’s largest hotel globally, as well as its first and only hotel in Macau. It will also be the eighth hospitality brand to establish a presence within Galaxy Macau.

The Best of Two Worlds

A vibrant lifestyle brand with 28 hotels worldwide, including Amsterdam, Bali, Dubai, London, Los Angeles, Munich, New York, Seoul, Shanghai, and Tokyo, Andaz is renowned for hotels that are deeply rooted in the art and culture of their destinations, offering both leisure and business guests the opportunity to discover an array of authentic, multisensory local experiences.

Located between the picturesque and well-preserved neighborhoods of Old Taipa and Coloane, the new hotel immerses guests in the “real Macau”, allowing them to experience the city’s traditional heritage and diverse culture firsthand, as well as providing easy access to the resort’s many cutting-edge attractions. This includes Galaxy Macau’s world-class tourism and MICE facilities, with Andaz Macau being directly connected to both Galaxy International Convention Center (GICC) and the 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena, offering unrivaled convenience for not only MICE guests but also guests pursuing a modern lifestyle stay.

As well as more than 700 thoughtfully designed rooms and suites, the hotel will also feature a dedicated check-in lounge catering to large MICE groups, a signature lounge, a bar and restaurant, a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center, and a heated 19-meter indoor pool. These facilities are complemented by warm, unscripted service that makes guests feel right at home while also immersing them in the spirit of the eclectic culture around them.

Contemporary Culture-Rich Design

Presenting Old Taipa in a contemporary context, the hotel’s aesthetic pays homage to the village’s classic architectural style, and draws inspiration from the city’s UNESCO-recognized East-meets-West architecture, the distinctive forms of its old maritime harbor ships, the rich traditions of local Chinese culture, and the dynamic international lifestyle of modern Macau. Its imaginative interiors and carefully curated art pieces, meanwhile, inspire visitors to discover the real Macau through its contemporary and vibrant interpretation of the city’s remarkable heritage.

Imagined as the richly decorated residence of a knowledgeable antique dealer with a deep understanding of Macau’s multifaceted cultural heritage, Andaz Macau features elements of old Macau presented in a new way, the interiors give visitors the opportunity to learn about the city’s history and culture as they explore different spaces and encounter various art pieces throughout the hotel.

This diverse collection of artworks includes “Juxtapose”, a stunning series of steel sculptures by Malaysian artist Tang Mun Kian that pays tribute to the city’s historic architecture, iconic landmarks, and the insights of local residents, while other artifacts on display include the intricately embroidered couture gowns “Golden Phoenix” and “Enchanted Mountains”, unique antique vases “Glass Horizon 1930” and “Glazed Mountains 1840”, elegant glass sculptures “Shades of Water” and “Sails of Glass”, and the vibrant paintings “Energetic Motion” and “World Connected”.

Most impressive of all, however, is “Macau Steps”, a one-of-a-kind staircase that reveals stories of the city’s past and present through more than 100 captivating videos that create an engaging multisensory experience. Beginning with the city’s busy streets at the bottom and winding its way up to the peace and tranquility of nature at the top, this signature feature takes guests on a beguiling journey of discovery that reveals the real Macau one step at a time.

A Dynamic Dining Destination

Guests keen to experience the authentic flavors of Macau, as well as classic dishes from around the world, will be well catered for at Andaz Macau’s dynamic culinary venues.

Connected to the main restaurant by a discreet entrance and accommodating up to 80 guests, the multi-function Andaz Studio offers endless possibilities. It is perfect for business and private events, as well as interactive experiences such as master chef cooking classes.

The adjacent Andaz Lounge is an open and instantly welcoming space that is evocative of a residential living room. Thoughtfully designed with locally inspired touches, the lounge is a community social space that offers a window into Macau’s past while providing in-house MICE guests with an opportunity to network with colleagues over a freshly brewed cup of coffee, or a private corner for leisure travelers to relax after a day of exploring the city. Andaz Bar is an open and inviting setting where guests can savor creative cocktails prepared by our mixologist and craft beer produced by a local Macau brewery, complemented by a selection of sophisticated hand-bites.
