Galaxy Entertainment Group to bring Raffles brand to Macau

By Peter Lynch

Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) has announced the signing of a collaboration with hospitality group Accor that will see the Raffles brand come to Galaxy Macau.

Raffles at Galaxy Macau will be an all-suite tower comprising 450 suites, and is scheduled to open in the second half of 2021 as part of Galaxy Macau’s Phase 3 development. It will be located on the integrated resort’s east promenade, with a glass bridge connecting the two towers on every floor.

“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,” said GEG vice chairman Francis Lui. 

“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.”

GEG offers the largest collection of luxury hotels in Macau, including Galaxy Hotel, StarWorld Hotel, JW Marriott Hotel Macau, Banyan Tree Macau, and Hotel Okura Macau among many others.

Sébastien Bazin, chairman and CEO of Accor, added: “This collaboration with GEG marks an important milestone for Raffles Hotels & Resorts and creates a stunning addition to the excitement in Macau. As a future flagship of Accor’s luxury portfolio, we are confident that Raffles at Galaxy Macau will exceed our guests’ expectations.”
