Hyatt is set to open its first Andaz branded property in Macau in the first half of 2021.

The property will have over 700 rooms and suites, a lounge, a bar and restaurant, a fitness centre and an indoor pool. Hyatt says the hotel will be connected to the Galaxy International Convention Center and a 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena with a dedicated private lounge catering to large Meetings, Incentives, Conventions & Exhibitions (MICE) groups.

“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,” said David Udell, group president, Asia Pacific, Hyatt.

The hotel is also part of the Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct – an area with entertainment options, over 200 luxury brands, leisure attractions and more than 120 dining options.

Hyatt has paired up with Galaxy Entertainment Group, a resorts, hospitality and gaming company to introduce the property in Macao.

“Today’s luxury traveller is increasingly seeking out unique experiences and the opportunity to become truly immersed in a destination’s culture. We are delighted to meet this need with the addition of Andaz Macau to our Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct,” said Francis Lui, vice-chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group.

Andaz is a brand of luxury hotels with a total of 21 properties in a number of countries including the US, Singapore, UK, Canada, Costa Rica, Japan, Korea, and China to name a few. This year, Hyatt opened its first Andaz property in Germany.
