Just across the water from Hong Kong, the aptly named resort of Galaxy Macau™ offers out-of-this-world entertainment and leisure facilities on a truly grand scale, including a watery wonderland of pools, a huge casino, superb shopping and Michelin-starred restaurants. One of three hotels in the complex, JW Marriott Hotel Macau makes quite a statement of its own. Boasting grandstand views of the resort, stunning interiors and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, this property is a real cut above the rest.
The hotel’s facilities are so high-end that you may find yourself not wanting to leave. The majestic lobby, opulent common areas and sleek guest rooms provide comfort and a sense of grandeur. The oasis-like pool boasts a swim-up bar, and there’s plenty of room to sun yourself on the plethora of loungers. Meanwhile, the award-winning ESPA is on hand for luxurious treatments and pampering, and a state-of-the-art gym makes it easy to keep up with your workout routine.
The huge Premier King rooms boast impressive resort views from their floor-to-ceiling windows and are sleekly finished in muted shades of metallic grey. Each room features an en-suite bathroom, complete with a separate bathtub and shower.
There are four dining options at the hotel, ranging from all-day international buffet fare at Urban Kitchen to exquisitely presented, authentic Cantonese cuisine at Man Ho. The Pool Bar has tempting seafood snacks, and the sociable Coffee House is good for your daily java fix.
ESPA was recently awarded Best Spa Design of the Year at the SpaChina Awards, and it’s easy to see why. The spa is a serene retreat, with 10 treatment rooms, three couples suites and a host of therapeutic massages and body treatments. Other amenities include a lap pool, a steam room and therapy baths.
A short trip across a bridge from the neighboring island of Macau, JW Marriott Hotel Macau sits on the small island of Taipa and is one of three large hotels in the Galaxy complex. A few steps away, you’ll find the Grand Resort Deck, with a lazy river, an amazing wave pool and a man-made beach. There’s also plenty of upscale shopping, a range of restaurants and a large casino at the resort.
How to Get There
I'd give this property 5 stars all the way. The hotel is as grand is it gets and the rooms, the staff, restaurants, bar pool, and everything in between are luxuriously done. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I happened to be in one of their Club rooms and the view from the room was simply fabulous. I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Macau for a vacation or a business trip.
We stayed a week in a King size room with Executive Lounge access.
The room and bed were very and the hotel facilities including the pool were excellent.
The lounge staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. A great range of choices is provided in the lounge for breakfast each morning. In the evening cocktails and "canapes" are actually enough for an evening meal!
We loved the hotel and would gladly stay again should we return to Macau.
This is the 3rd time staying at JW Marriott in Macau. The hotel is located at the Galaxy complex. As a Marriott Elite member you get good Elite membership recognition and the benefits include breakfast in lounge/main restaurant, afternoon tea, canapés (actually full meal) and evening alcoholic drinks for 4 hours served in the executive lounge. The wines served are of good quality.
In addition it has a full gym and a very nice pool area with water slides and “rapid” river to float in.
We stayed in other hotels here, but this my favorite for sure.
