Suites range from 100m² Grand Cotai Suites and 150m² Grand Macau Suites to 150m² Spa Suites, with their own treatment rooms, and a 670m² split-level Presidential Suite with two-bedrooms, a dining room, show kitchen and in-suite relaxation pool.

Among the Pool Villas are expansive 950m² Sanctuary Pool Villas, ideal for family retreats or gathering of friends with two-bedrooms, a living area, show kitchen, spa treatment room, private pool, garden and Resort Host service.

Suites and villas pay tribute to Oriental design with high ceilings and ornate furnishings, complemented by auspicious vermillion red accents.

World Class Facilities
The resort will feature world class meeting facilities including a grand ballroom for up to 1,200 cocktail and two conference rooms for seminars, weddings and prestigious social events.

A major attraction is Macau’s first award-winning Banyan Tree Spa, featuring 21 treatment rooms offering the spa’s signature beauty, health and wellness therapies and products.

The 2,800m² haven of indulgence offers “sensory pampering and experiences steeped in holistic Asian healing traditions” alongside two tropical pools.

Four restaurants include the signature Belon Oyster Bar & Grill – complemented by a Banyan Café, Cabana Pool Bar and Banyan Lounge, offering a wide range of gourmet experiences.

Resort guests are also spoilt for choice with more than 50 other restaurants and bars within the Galaxy Macau™ integrated complex.

Resort facilities also include a Banyan Tree Gallery showcasing indigenous art and crafts from community projects worldwide, plus a state-of-the-art gymnasium.

“Banyan Tree Macau is designed for travellers looking to immerse themselves in the excitement of Cotai’s entertainment district, but still desire their own private sanctuary to relax in,” said Mr. Rudy Oretti, General Manager of Banyan Tree Macau. “We’ve brought together the best of Banyan Tree’s touches to offer a Sanctuary of the Senses for our guests, in this exciting new destination”.

The 5-star Galaxy Macau™ shares the world’s largest ‘sky wave’ pool - featuring an artificial 150-metre white sand beach complete with automatic crashing waves - a highlight of the mega integrated development.
