Have seen this many times as I live in Macau and frequently visit Galaxy. There’s something about the Galaxy Lobby that smells like chlorine and I believe it is this fountain. The diamond show is free but I would not be going out of my way to view it, very boring and tacky.

The Fortune Diamond is a free 3-4 minute show in the Galaxy hotel lobby on the Cotai Strip. This is one of the original features of the hotel that has been operating every day since the property opened in 2011. Some love it, others find it little more than kitsch tourism. You can always watch Youtube videos of the show before deciding to invest your sightseeing time on this free attraction or not while in Macau. The show takes place from 10am to 12am (Sunday to Thursday) and 10am to 2am (Friday & Saturday) and is held every hour. In the past the show was held every 30 minutes but presently they have scaled back likely due to the lack of guests during the Covid-19 outbreak. I expect show frequency to revert once mass numbers of tourists return to Macau. What you will see is a huge 3-metre tall replica diamond rise from the floor and rotate in front of you. Held by cables, the plastic gem appears to levitate while sparking in front of your eyes. Accompanied by colour, mystical sounds and water spouts, it is supposed to bedazzle viewers. If you watch the spectators, you will see that it does seem to achieve just that. Others will find it boring or even confusing and then just carry on with their visit to Galaxy. In short, there is so much free entertainment and sightseeing in Macau these days. Quite a bit that has opened in the past 5 years alone. As such, I would not go out of my way to see the Fortune Diamond show, particularly if you are short on time in Macau. However, if you are staying at Galaxy and happen to be in the lobby area when show takes place, give it a few minutes to watch. You can then carry on with other intended activities at Galaxy.…

This is one hotel that we nearly miss while in Macau. Apparently, the visit is very rewarding. The giant diamond drop is awesome and the hotel lobby alone is spectacular. Hotel personnel are very accommodating. Should not be miss when in Macau.

The moment I had my grand entrance at the grandiose Galaxy Macau Diamond Lobby, I feel VVIP on New Year Day 2020 (January 1st) wearing my Forever 21 red velvet dress 👗 accent with gold design to welcome the New Year in Macau. I was welcomed with the Galaxy Macau Diamond Show, a dazzling show of lights, sound, water and visual artistry as Galaxy Macau described it. Out of the blue, a magnificent giant diamond 💎 miraculous emerges from the water 💧 which rotates before your eyes before being engulfed by the fountain. I was able to capture the whole show on my real time vlog through Facebook Live as I shared it to my 3F's (family, friends and followers) online! I made some screenshots from the said video for TripAdvisor readers.…
