Reminiscent of the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong, sharing its classic lines and restrained opulence, the Ritz Carlton in Macau is complete with little touches that will surprise and delight those familiar with the seminal home of Asian luxury. The all-suite hotel has over 250 large and supremely appointed accommodations, replete with floor-to-ceiling windows, marble bathrooms and high-tech entertainment systems. Echoing the abundance of gastronomic innovation found on the Cotai Strip, the hotel has four different dining options, presenting a choice of local delicacies, Western favorites and fine dining, to keep guests satiated day and night. To complete the indulgence, guests can lounge in the waters of the heated pool and jacuzzi, and be pampered with a myriad of rejuvenating treatments in the ESPA.
Location Located on the top floors of the astounding Galaxy Macau, the fully integrated resort and entertainment hot spot of the city, the Ritz-Carlton offers incredible views of the Cotai Strip, with easy access to the cultural pleasures of Asia’s number one luxury playground.
History The Ritz-Carlton opened in May 2015 and is one of Galaxy Macau’s most recent additions. The brand’s 89th property, and their first all-suite offering, the hotel has already gained a reputation as one of the preeminent high-end establishments on the Cotai Strip.
Service Personalized service and an extraordinary attention to detail are central to the Ritz-Carlton philosophy, and the Ritz-Carlton in Macau is no exception. From the moment of their arrival, guests will be greeted by name by all staff throughout the property, and treated to the focused and attentive hospitality that has made the brand famous across the world.
All suites are designed in the classic Ritz-Carlton style, with Portuguese accents reflecting the influence of the Mediterranean in Macau. Complete with astonishing views of the city, all accommodations feature separate bedroom, bathroom and living area, allowing guests to forget their cares and drift off into serenity. Opting for Club Lounge access enables guests to take meals in the rarefied air of the roof terrace, and marvel at the sensational views across Macao and neighbouring Zhuhai.
Covering a very generous 1055 square feet, the Carlton Suites are sat towards the top of the hotel for extra exclusivity.

This extravagant yet intimate accommodation - complete with master bedroom, marble bathroom and separate lounge - is brought together by rich, patterned carpets dotted with designer furnishings, and finished in a soothing gray and silver color scheme. The floor-to-ceiling picture windows bathe everything with natural light - an effect that maximizes the old-world charm of this magnificent set of rooms.
A beautiful space with room enough for three adults, this 936 square-foot suite comes with a vast master bedroom swathed in crisp linens and fine beddings, and an elegant classically-styled living room - decorated in gold and brown hues that are the very embodiment of restrained grandeur.

At 1345 square feet, the Two Bedroom Carlton Club Suite is the largest residence available at the Ritz-Carlton, featuring two large and comfortable bedrooms, two marble bathrooms with separate rainforest shower, and oversized tubs.
