Chinoiserie elegance, five pools and Michelin-starred fare in Macau’s burgeoning mini Vegas
This refined 19-story sanctuary amid the Cotai Strip’s hotel-casino scrum offers 360 rooms and suites bathed in warm golden tones with flashes of dusky rose and chestnut-brown, rich woods and leather. Neo-classical decor with Indo-Portuguese fixtures and Oriental accents reflect Macanese history, while two grand staircases in the lobby are pure Euro flash, perfect entrances for those ordering bottle service at Bar Azul. Turn-down service includes bite-sized pastries (Portguese egg tarts, tiramisu-like “sawdust” pudding), and a state-of-the-art gym the chance to work them off.
In the Area
Four hundred and ninety-nine years of colonial rule (see: Macau Museum) pack a lot of history into 11 square miles, but no UNESCO-protected cobblestone is as delightful as Macau’s fusion cuisine. Delicate egg tarts (natas) from Lord Stow’s Bakery are a classic breakfast—and necessary treat. Café Ou Mun offers heartier breakfast fare such as fried pork chop buns, coconut cakes and iced coffee sweetened with banana syrup. Dine beachside at Fernando’s on suckling pig and baked clams, or beneath camphor trees in a calçada courtyard at Albergue 1601 on bacalhau cakes, stuffed crabs and the coconut-milk-basted Macanese misnomer, African Chicken. Then there’s modern Macau’s frenzied casino scene: You can access the Vegas-sized Venetian and the Plaza through a three-story shopping mall.
