A comfortable and quality home is important for expatriates as well as locals who enjoy quality lifestyle and the convenience of a fully furnished nest. Serving this rising demand, the serviced apartments market has grown tremendously in recent years, with a total of over 150 serviced apartments in the city to-date. We are excited to be hosting the second annual "GoHome Serviced Apartment Awards" to recognise outstanding services provided by leading industry players and are committed to assisting our consumers in selecting a home most suitable for them from amongst the wide array of choices."
"Macau has, in recent years, been developing at high speed, in particular, in the tourism and gaming industries. A considerable number of businessmen from mainland China and overseas have come to invest and work in Macau, resulting in a rising demand for a comprehensive search platform for serviced apartments. Therefore, this year's award has further extended to Macau for the first time in recognition of the remarkable services offered by serviced apartment operators in Macau. I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the winners for the vote of confidence they've received and we are honoured to be their preferred online partner," she added.
