It stands to reason that there's an abundance of five-star hotels in Macau to match those of any world-class city. But with so much choice, we’ve narrowed it down to the cream of the crop, with tip top service, to-die-for views and luxury to spare
Mandarin Oriental Macau
When booking a luxury suite the view might not be your first consideration, but the extraordinary 270-degree vista across Macau Bay to Nam Van Lake through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is truly impressive.
The 3,600sqft Presidential Suite itself is equally stunning, with two sitting rooms furnished with large grey sofas and elegant occasional tables; a private bar and dining area; and two bedrooms, each with its own marble bathroom, including a large stone bathtub. With plush patterned carpets, soft lighting and collection of Asian-inspired artefacts, the suite’s decor is the epitome of style, not surprising from one of the most exclusive hotels in the city.

This certainly applies to the exquisite 3,000sqft two-bedroom suites in the Wynn Tower, which are designed to be uplifting, with light materials chosen for the fabrics, carpet and lampshades, and white lacquer chests and seating adding to the fresh quality of the space.
