A third new property, the Broadway Hotel, adds another 320 rooms to the Galaxy Macau complex, taking its total accommodation collection to six hotels comprising more than 3,800 rooms and suites.
“Marriott International sees unlimited potential in the future of Macau,” said Henry Lee, the hotel group’s chief operations officer for Greater China. “The launch of JW Marriott Hotel Macau and the Ritz-Carlton Macau with Galaxy Macau are long-term investments that will perfectly complement Macau’s evolving tourist landscape.
“The region has undoubtedly changed significantly in recent years and we are seeing the city transform from a gaming destination to one with a more diverse range of entertainment and recreation options for guests of all ages,” he added.
JW Marriott Macau will become the brand’s flagship hotel in Asia. In addition to its 1,015 rooms and suites, the property features four restaurants, the world’s largest JW Kids Club, swimming pools and 2,700m² of meeting space. It will also offer access to Galaxy Macau’s 75,000m² Grand Resort Deck, which is home to the world’s largest rooftop wave pool, 575 metres of rapids and a 350-tonne sandy beach.
The Ritz-Carlton Macau meanwhile, will feature a Cantonese fine dining restaurant, a lounge, spa, swimming pool with pool bar and 900m² of event space.
In addition to the new hotels, the latest phase of the Galaxy Macau includes the new Broadway Macau area. This street-style entertainment district will play host to live entertainers and street-style vendors, plus 40 F&B outlets, 20 retail stores and the new 3,000-seat Broadway Theatre.
“We have a firm commitment to contribute to the diversification of the region’s leisure and entertainment industry. We also promised to develop and nurture local talent and promote local culture to support the economy. Rooted in Macau, we are aligned with the central government’s vision to help the territory fulfil its potential as a world centre of tourism and leisure, contributing to Macau’s long-term growth,” said Dr Lui Che-woo, chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group.
