Out Of This World – Galaxy Macau Grand Opening

One small step (or ferry ride!) for mankind and one giant leap for your good times! A bright new star is rising in Macau and is set to make headlines from Shanghai to St. Tropez. Opening 27 May 2015, the gilded and gorgeous Galaxy Macau will be doubling in size and adding some seriously swoon-worthy hotels, restaurants, shops and spas to its already stellar line-up. Let us introduce The Ritz-Carlton, Macau, the first and only all-suite Ritz-Carlton property in the world, featuring 250 jaw-dropping pads – sure to be the perfect backdrop for your next high-roller weekend, and Asia’s largest JW Marriott, JW Marriott Hotel Macau, with over 1,000 rooms and suites – which are joining the spa-tastic Banyan Tree Macau, the refined Japanese Hotel Okura Macau and the grand dame Galaxy Macau, offering a staggering total of more than 3600 rooms for you to stay and play.

This little number’s only just getting started…More than 80 restaurants, bars and lounges are sure to get your mouth watering. The collection of Asian award-winning and Michelin-starred celebrity chef restaurants is further enhanced with 81/2 Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA, Fook Lam Moon, Lai Heen and Man Ho Chinese Restaurant coming to the resort. For those who like a little local flavour, sashay on over to The Broadway, Macau’s first hawker-style street market, which will be home to over 40 Asian foodie hotspots including many of Macau’s most treasured culinary hideaways — serving up mouthwatering egg tarts, pork chop buns and more, from early morning ‘til late night.

While away the days in a luxe poolside cabana at Banyan Tree, get pampered to a pulp at ESPA, or feel the sand between your toes at The Grand Resort Deck, which is now home to the world’s longest Skytop Aquatic Adventure River Ride, largest Skytop Wave Pool, a 350-ton white sand beach, and much more. After you’ve gotten your ideal summer glow, The Promenade awaits with over 200 shops to outfit you for whatever antics the evening will bring.

Not sure where to start? How about at the Grand Opening on 27 May, kicking off the celebrations with a (free to attend) food and fun filled street party at The Broadway, featuring live local bands, DJs including Ministry of Sound, street performers, lots of local culinary treats and some of Macau’s most scintillating entertainers.

Less than two weeks to go before it all kicks off.  Lights, camera…let the countdown begin!
