"We are honoured to launch the Andaz brand in Macau in our first collaboration with Galaxy Entertainment Group as part of the group's ever-expanding integrated resorts precinct in the city," said Hyatt's group president, Asia Pacific, David Udell.

"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."  

GEG vice chairman Francis Lui said Macau has many stories to tell and is rich in history and culture.

"With Andaz Macau, we will work closely with Hyatt to create experiences that truly showcase what is special about this destination, while further contributing to the strength of Macau's tourism and MICE industries," he added.
