Officially opened in 2016, the Wynn Palace is considered to be Macau’s most opulent hotel yet. Reportedly costing a cool US$4.2 billion just to build, the hotel boasts a rare art collection valued at around US$200 million, and the largest spa in all of Macau, spanning 4,497 square metres — that’s even before we get into the details. Within the Wynn Palace’s gilded presence, it’s not surprising that the hotel prides itself on creating the most decadent guest experience — one that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in Asia.
An enchanting stay should start with an unforgettable entrance: Guests can arrive by the hotel’s premier attraction, the SkyCab, floating 28 metres in the air into the heart of Wynn Palace. Seating up to six in a car, you’ll take in panoramic views of Cotai strip and the ballet of fountains in Performance Lake — Macau’s only light-up water spectacle seen from an even more breathtaking vantage point.
Even in the standard Palace Room, you’ll be waking up in a custom pillow-top Dream bed, cocooned in silky 507-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets. The 730-sq.-ft. room is anything but standard of course, but if you’re after a more extravagant resort experience, you’ll want to upgrade to the chic Parlor Suite or the Fountain Parlor Suite, which offers luxurious amenities paired with floor-to-ceiling views of the elegant spectacle at Performance Lake.
If a rejuvenating spa getaway is what you’re craving, you’ll want to book in for the Spa room variation — available from the Palace Room and up, and already included in the Fountain Parlor Suite — a larger room configuration complete with in-room spa treatment facilities, so you can take advantage of the Spa at Wynn Palace in the comfort and privacy of your own space. Prefer a dedicated spa environment instead? You’ll be reluctant to leave the opulent Spa after stepping foot in it — with decor inspired by the dynastic splendour of ancient Chinese palaces. Get treated like an Emperor or Empress by booking the VIP treatment suite here: featuring a deep soaking jet bathtub, gorgeous lounging area and of course, your chosen treatment itself that’s sure to leave you utterly blissed out for the remainder of your stay.
After indulging in breakfast at Fontana Buffet in the morning, take a dip in the whimsically decorated pool surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens. Slip on your shades and soak in the sun, with the only care in the world being where you’ll be eating next for lunch and dinner.
It’s a tough choice for sure, with a wealth of fine dining options at the hotel. Would you rather the carefully crafted omakase experience at Sushi Mizumi, or the eclectic, modern Japanese flavours met with traditional omotenashi hospitality at Mizumi? A succulent surf-and-turf meal at Las Vegas’ award-winning SW Steakhouse, or a dramatic Cantonese dining experience at Wynn Palace’s crown jewel, Wing Lei Palace?
If you ever feel the need to venture out of the resort, or out of the Cotai Strip for that matter, there’s plenty of landmarks nearby that will beautifully round out a weekend stay in Macau: from the vibrant colonial buildings of the Santa Casa da Misericordia, a sanctuary for the needy during World War II, to the historic architecture at Guia Fortress, China’s first modern lighthouse; to A-Ma temple, Macau’s oldest structure dedicated to the patron saint of seafarers.
From positively palatial guest rooms to sumptuous spa experiences and fabulous fine dining options, a stay here might sound like an experience best reserved for those who mix and mingle with royalty. But living in the lap of luxury at the Wynn Palace doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, if you know where to look. Savvy travellers can take advantage of Wynn Palace’s current offers, which span from better rates upon advance purchase, or a fabulous upgrade on suite rates, offering even better value for money.
