Thanks to the work of Japanese architect Kanko Kikaku Sekkeisha, Hotel Okura Macau provides a distinctly Japanese interpretation of the Galaxy Macau complex’s motto, "World Class, Asian Heart." Kimono-clad hosts welcome guests as they enter the high-ceilinged white marble and wood lobby; this space, along with the rest of the public areas, is designed with minimalist and refined traditional Japanese touches, and the result is a design style that’s both modern and definitively Asian. The hotel is an oasis of calm in the middle of the busy Galaxy Macau complex.
The guest room design offers an ambiance of relaxation and sophistication; lanterns in the traditional Japanese-style screens greet guests as they enter, while light wood accents, a bamboo-inspired hand-tufted rug, warm soji-paper lighting and woven wall coverings with a gold leaf motif add a sense of warmth and luxury to this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel.
