Development of the legendary Raffles at Galaxy Macau


Raffles at Galaxy MacauGalaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”), one of the world’s leading integrated resorts, hospitality and entertainment companies, is pleased to announce the signing of a collaboration with Accor for Raffles, the legendary brand that has set the standard in luxury hospitality for more than 130 years.

Galaxy Macau™, a world-class luxury integrated resort will welcome the iconic brand with the addition and opening of an exclusive all-suite tower, Raffles at Galaxy Macau in the second half of 2021.

Raffles at Galaxy Macau, featuring approximately 450 suites, is the latest chapter in the storied history of the legendary Raffles brand and will soon introduce a new level of sophistication and refinement to Macau. Since 1887, the brand has been synonymous with the very best of luxury travel and experiences while defining the essence of thoughtful, personal and discreet service. Each Raffles hotel across the globe tells its own unique story while staying true to the brand’s rich history in the most relevant and modern ways, and Raffles at Galaxy Macau seeks to elevate the customized guest experience.  

Located on the resort’s east promenade, Raffles at Galaxy Macau is 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. The famed Raffles butlers, renowned for their thoughtful and discreet service, will personally deliver a level of enlightened hospitality that is both gracious and intuitive for each and every guest.

In a world first, 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. This <Art embraces Technology> concept will delight guests with customized experiences and a personalized ambience. Guests who manage to secure these highly sought-after suites in this new luxury tower, may enjoy Raffles’ legendary signature afternoon tea experience or unwind in a secretive twist on the Raffles’ hallmark Long Bar — provenance of the iconic Singapore Sling — where they can sip a new iconic Sling tailored for Macau, or escape to The Glass House for breakfast or an elegant snack to enjoy the outdoors, in an indoor environment. The Glass House, set amidst a Mediterranean-inspired garden, is within a few steps of the Raffles’ private infinity edge pool. Details on a luxury Spa, and a specialty restaurant whispered to be helmed by a multi-Michelin-starred Japanese chef, both located conveniently close to the lobby of this new luxury tower, are still under wraps.

Raffles at Galaxy Macau will offer bespoke comfort and privacy, designed intuitively around the needs of each guest, from thoughtfully tailored relaxation and intimate fine dining to an exciting array of bespoke leisure activities, entertainment and luxury shopping at Galaxy Macau, directly connected to the lobby podium.  

Mr. Francis Lui, Vice Chairman of GEG, said, “The Raffles brand and heritage is perfectly complementary to our strategy of delivering greater, elevated experiences, and true to our ‘World Class, Asian Heart’ mantra. This collaboration with Raffles and Accor in the development of Raffles at Galaxy Macau brings yet another differentiated luxury perspective and dimension in GEG’s growing portfolio and estate. Aside from offering more diversity in our luxury accommodations at Galaxy Macau, we expect it will also raise the bar to new heights throughout the region.”

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.”
