Galaxy Macau’s ‘Phase 2’ expansions are due to be unveiled on May 27. The additional area will double the current resort’s size to over 1.1 million sqm, and consume HK$43 billion of a promised HK$100 billion committed investment to the region.
The new developments follow a bid to diversify Galaxy Entertainment Group’s offering away from gambling, after consistent losses in gaming revenue over the past 11 months, reports the South China Morning Post.
Among the new attractions is the Grand Resort Deck, which will be home to the world’s longest skytop river ride and wave pool, as well as The Broadway, marketed as a new entertainment district with hawker-style vendors and performers. The Promenade will be another retail destination for avid shoppers, offering over 200 retailers and 120 F&B outlets.
The Broadway Theater will be a 3,000 seater for mega-screenings and events, adding another large-scale venue to the existing UA Galaxy Cinemas and performance lounge and members’ club China Rouge.
Joining the complex’s three hotels is the world’s largest JW Marriott, Broadway Hotel and the first all-suite Ritz-Carlton. Together, they will offer additional venues catering up to 3,000 guests.
Other forthcoming developments on the peninsula include Melco Crown Entertainment’s Hollywood-themed resort Studio City, due to open this year and a new resort from Sands China, The Parisian Macau, opening in 2016.
