Macau, December 1, 2015 – Set within one of the world’s most spectacular entertainment and leisure destinations – Galaxy MacauTM, The Ritz-Carlton, Macau today officially launched its inaugural Christmas and New Year festivities at an intimate Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Officiating guests including Mr. Paul Pun, Secretary-General of Caritas Macau, Ms. Sophie Lei, Director General of KW Charity Association and Mr. Carlos Ip, Retail Director, Macau of Tiffany & Co. joined Mr. Rauf Malik, Vice President of Operations for JW Marriott Hotel Macau and The Ritz-Carlton, Macau and Mr. Juan Samso, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Macau to witness the spectacular moment where the 4.5 meter tall Christmas tree was illuminated with twinkling white lights, adding a magical sparkle to the tree’s crystal-white baubles and ice-blue trimmings. Throughout December, guests will be greeted by the majestic evergreen when arriving through the porte cochère evoking a wintry feel of snowflakes and icicles.
“The Ritz-Carlton brand across the globe has a rich heritage of creating unforgettable experiences so we hope to offer our guests an unsurpassed experiential and culinary journey as we celebrate our first yuletide season here in Macau,” said Mr. Rauf Malik, Vice President of Operations at JW Marriott Hotel Macau and The Ritz-Carlton, Macau at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. He added, “It gives me great pleasure to announce the “Holiday Postcards” campaign - a heartwarming collaboration between The Ritz-Carlton, Macau and Tiffany & Co.. We hope that this Christmas, our guests won’t just share the message of love and giving with friends and families, but also with those in need in our community.”
The Ritz-Carlton, Macau will add a touch of warmth to this Christmas season with a special collaboration with Tiffany & Co. to spread festive joy throughout Macau. This is the first holiday partnership since the luxury jewelry brand entered the market nine years ago. The Meet & Greet Room of The Ritz-Carlton, Macau will allow guests to indulge in the “Holiday Postcards” retreat. Not only guests can soak up the Christmas spirit in a sophisticated and elegant setting beneath the iconic Tiffany-blue tree, but they can also send personalized “Holiday Postcards” by Tiffany & Co. to loved ones to share precious holiday memories with compliments of the hotel. And in the true spirit of sharing, for every five postcards sent by the guests from Tiffany & Co. and the hotel, the ladies and gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton, Macau will hand-deliver a special Christmas gift to less privileged children at Caritas Macau.
