An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corp. has entered into an agreement with Galaxy Entertainment Group to develop a new Andaz property in Macau, China. 

The hotel, expected to open in the first half of 2021 as part of the Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, will be the first Andaz-branded property in the special administrative region.

When it opens, the Andaz Macau will have 700 rooms and suites, an Andaz Lounge, a bar and restaurant, a fitness center and an indoor pool. The hotel is directly connected to Galaxy International Convention Center and 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena with a dedicated private lounge for large groups. 

The hotel is also part of the Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, with 11.8 million square feet of entertainment facilities, stores, leisure attractions and more than 120 dining options.

“We are honored 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 David Udell, group president, Asia Pacific, Hyatt, in a statement. 

The Andaz brand is on track to double its footprint in the Asia-Pacific region with a “strong pipeline” across Greater China in destinations like Macau, Taipei, Chengdu, Sanya, Shenzhen and Xiamen.
