Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into an agreement with Galaxy Entertainment Group, to develop a new Andaz property in Macau, China.
The hotel, expected to open in the first half of 2021 as part of the ever-expanding Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, will mark the entry of the Andaz brand into Macau.
Andaz Macau will comprise over 700 rooms and suites, an Andaz Lounge, a bar and restaurant, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and an indoor pool.
The hotel is directly connected to Galaxy International Convention Center and 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena with a dedicated private lounge catering to large Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) groups.
The hotel is also part of the Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, providing guests easy access to 11.8 million square feet of unique entertainment, shopping with over 200 world renowned luxury brands, leisure attractions and more than 120 dining options.
Andaz, meaning ‘personal style’ in Hindi, encapsulates the brand’s passion to connect with its guests and to experience the world through their eyes, and it also speaks to the uniqueness of the brand’s properties.
From New York to London to Shanghai, and most recently to Seoul, Andaz hotels and resorts are known to stimulate the senses through distinctively local and authentic experiences.
Rather than merely visit a destination, guests are invited to truly engage and connect with the surrounding locale and culture.
“We are honoured to launch the Andaz brand in Macau in our first collaboration with Galaxy Entertainment Group as part of the group’s ever-expanding integrated resorts precinct in the city,” said David Udell, Group president, Asia Pacific, Hyatt.
“Global in scale while local in perspective, the Andaz brand is on track to double its footprint in Asia Pacific with a strong pipeline across Greater China, in destinations such as Macau and Taipei, as well as Chengdu, Sanya, Shenzhen and Xiamen.”
“Today’s luxury traveller is increasingly seeking out unique experiences and the opportunity to become truly immersed in a destination’s culture,” said Francis Lui, vice-chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group.
“We are delighted to meet this need with the addition of Andaz Macau to our Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct.
“Macau has many stories to tell and is rich in history and culture. With Andaz Macau, we will work closely with Hyatt to create experiences that truly showcase what is special about this destination, while further contributing to the strength of Macau’s tourism and MICE industries.”
