JW Marriott Hotel Macau and The Ritz-Carlton Macau are the latest properties opened simultaneous in the thriving Special Administrative Region (S.A.R) of Macau in South China. The properties are located within one of the world’s most “spectacular” entertainment and leisure destinations – Galaxy Macau.
Easily accessible by air, land and sea, 31 million tourists visited Macau in 2014, with the majority coming from mainland China.
According to Marriott, the global luxury hospitality chain with 177 hotels in Asia Pacific, the company sees unlimited potential in the future of Macau.
“The region has undoubtedly changed significantly in recent years and we are seeing the city transform from a gaming destination to one with a more diverse range of entertainment and recreation options for guests of all ages,” said Henry Lee, Greater China Chief Operations Officer for Marriott International.
Offering the impeccable levels of service for which the brand is famous around the world, The Ritz-Carlton, Macau features over 250 suites on the top floors of the integrated resort.
The hotel is adorned in Azulejo tiles, a form of Portuguese or Spanish ceramic tile that has evolved into the Rococo style panels that are synonymous with the heritage décor found in Macau today. During their in-room check in on arrival, guests can immerse themselves in the local culture with Chinese tea and local snacks, all to the backdrop of soothing music. In-room amenities include traditional egg-tarts, almond cookies and chocolates along with a bookmark that details the history of Macau.
The outdoor pool provides views over Cotai, whilst, for those seeking privacy, the poolside cabanas provide an intimate retreat. For the ultimate pampering experience, guests can immerse themselves in sensorial bliss at the hotel’s spa, ESPA. Featuring ten lavish treatment rooms and three couples’ suites, which infuse elements of design rooted in traditional Chinese and Portuguese architecture, a therapeutic massage session at the idyllic hotel spa is sure to warm the soul.
JW Marriott Hotel Macau will serve as Asia’s flagship hotel. With 1,015 luxurious rooms and suites overlooking views of the Galaxy Macau’s Grand Resort Deck and Cotai Macau, the newly opened hotel is home to four restaurants.
Helmed by Executive Chef, Bruno Correa, the hotel’s culinary offers include classic Cantonese cuisine in a contemporary Chinese setting at the Man Ho Chinese Restaurant; an all-day dining outlet with international and regional cuisine – Urban Kitchen; the JW Pool Bar; and the slobby lounge The Lounge.
JW Marriott Hotel Macau is also taking the concept of “Edutainment” to Macau via the world’s largest JW Kids’ Club, which features an abundance of interactive activities for children that are designed to educate as well as to entertain.
