The Luxury of Silence at The Galaxy Macau

The luxury of silence in a magnificent fusion of classical and Asian architecture



Galaxy Macau, with its characteristic cupolas, rises above the Cotai Strip like a mythical palace. A tropical paradise where east meets west, with an architectural identity all of its own. This is one of the world’s most spectacular integrated resorts.


It is one of Forbes’ highest ranked destinations, with hotels including Hotel Okura Macau and Banyan Tree Macau, as well as the newly added The Ritz-Carlton Macau and JW Marriott, a casino with a specially-commissioned Asian theme, over 100 restaurants and bars serving Michelin-recommended international and Asian cuisine, unique spa, event and conference environments, and shopping at The Promenade – a shopping mall with over 200 exclusive stores.


The blend of Asian and European elements exudes luxurious elegance. As you enter The Promenade, you find yourself stepping into a cool, cream-colored oasis. Discover 5th Avenue, Bond Street or Avenue Montaigne within gently curved walls and smooth meandering ceilings. Inspiration for the decorative expression has come from the leaf which shape features on side panels, walls and balustrades. There is a certain shimmering glow reflected in the polished stone floors, created by a sprinkling of downlights set against a sophisticated background. The acoustics as people stroll peacefully across the brilliant surfaces are soft and subdued. Perhaps that is why people like to linger here. Galaxy Macau is not Shangri-la, but it is definitely somewhere you can enter a magical world for a short while.
