Galaxy Macau, a mega-resort casino entertainment complex in China

Long considered the Las Vegas of Asia, Macau is best known for its mega-casino resorts, with each new one vying to outdo its predecessors. But the stakes for future newcomers have just risen to a possibly unbeatable level with the arrival of Galaxy Macau. A massive casino is just the beginning at this entertainment complex, which welcomed more than 20,000 guests within its first 90 minutes. Galaxy Macau is expected to receive up to 40,000 guests a day, many of whom will stay in one of the property's three upscale hotels, including the Banyan Tree Macau, where accommodations include ten floating villas. An integrated destination resort designed to cater to international guests while appealing to the regional market, Galaxy Macau's notable superlatives are many. The Grand Resort deck boasts a 350-ton white sand beach and 4,000-square-meter wave pool, the largest of its kind in the world. Several more pools are surrounded by gardens, private cabanas and a traditional Japanese tea pavilion. The first Banyan Tree Spa in the Pearl River Delta features a private spa floor for hotel guests, and the collection of international food and beverage outlets number more than 50. Among numerous entertainment venues, Galaxy Macau is showcasing the exclusive China Rouge, a private membership club, performance theater, bar and restaurant designed to evoke 1930s Shanghai.
