Marriott International marked a new milestone at the end of May 2015 with the opening of JW Marriott Hotel Macau and The Ritz-Carlton, Macau 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™.

Here, guests have easy access to the host of leisure and entertainment options, including premium shopping, dining, world-class entertainment events and multifunctional meeting spaces. Easily accessible by air, land and sea, 31 million tourists visited Macau in 2014, with the majority coming from mainland China.
The Ritz-Carlton, Macau (pictured) is an all-suite hotel with over 250 suites on the top floors of the integrated resort. Intimacy, exclusivity, and personalized attention to detail are hallmarks of The Ritz-Carlton standards of hospitality and are pulled through into every aspect of this property. As is typical of The Ritz-Carlton properties around the world, The Ritz-Carlton, Macau goes to every length to ensure it blends elements in the hotel with that of its local surroundings. The hotel is adorned in Azulejo tiles, a form of Portuguese or Spanish ceramic tile that are synonymous with the heritage décor found in Macau today. During their in-room check in on arrival, guests can sample the local culture with Chinese tea and local snacks.
The outdoor pool provides spectacular views over Cotai, whilst, for those seeking privacy, the poolside cabanas provide an intimate retreat. The hotel’s ESPA spa offers ten treatment rooms and three couples’ suites, which infuse elements of design rooted in traditional Chinese and Portuguese architecture.
Dining experiences include classic Cantonese fine dining at Lai Heen; sophisticated high-teas or cocktails at The Ritz-Carlton Bar & Lounge; the casual ambience of The Ritz-Carlton Café; or organic fare and seafood at The Ritz-Carlton Pool Bar.
