The Mandarin Oriental Macau is a good choice if you are dipping in and out of the non-stop action of Macau yet want a tranquil retreat to recharge.
The Mandarin Oriental Macau is in a striking, contemporary, steel and glass tower right on Macau’s waterfront. The rooms and suites have a chic, modern decor, neutral colour palette, plush carpets and soft lighting, as well as high-speed Wi-Fi and LCD televisions. Finer details include pod coffee machines, walk-in wardrobes and even personal yoga mats. Book one of the many rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows that maximise the natural light. They also have breathtaking views, most of which are of Nam Van Lake or the South China Sea. The one-bedroom Deluxe Suites, all on floors 13 to 15, have awesome views over Macau and the bay, which can be enjoyed even from the comfort of the bathtub.
One of the standout features of the Mandarin Oriental Macau is the spa. Like the rooms, it is designed to take full advantage of the bay views. In addition to the treatment rooms and the suites that come with a private Jacuzzi, the Oriental Spa Suite features a heated scrub table and Thai massage beds for two – perfect for a lazy afternoon. A range of treatments developed in consultation with specialists in traditional Chinese medicine and master aromatherapists are available, and there is a vitality pool, amethyst crystal steam room, sauna and rainforest-experience shower. Meanwhile, there’s a gym and a host of fitness programmes hosted throughout the year. Do also make the most of the outdoor infinity swimming pool; although modest in size, it’s a good place to unwind with a cool drink.
The social side of things centre around the fashionable Vida Rica Restaurant, and you’re in for a treat if you like Chinese and Asian dishes such as Alaskan crab with caviar and mango sauce, or Macanese salted kingfish. Vida Rica Bar is a smart space in marble and chrome with a sophisticated ambience and three distinct areas for cocktails, champagne and tapas, or coffees. For a casual bite, order a snack at the Lobby Lounge, and if you’ve still got room for something sweet, the hotel’s Cake Shop is a must.
