Luxury hotel in the Vegas of Asia.
Macau is probably the most underrated city in Asia. Known as the Vegas of Asia, this commercialization of a city that used to be known for its rich cultural blend of Portuguese and Chinese cultures has transformed Macau into a misunderstood city. We visited the city with no intention to love it as much as we did, and therefore we recommend you checkout our top five must dos list, here, to uncover the culture of Macau.
Being the Vegas of Asia, Macau has no shortage of luxury hotels, with brand names such as The Venetian, Wynn, and MGM Grand proliferating the main strips. Therefore, we decided to leave our experiences of those amazing hotels to a real trip to Las Vegas. Alternatively, we decided to stay at one of our favourite chains, The Grand Hyatt. High on the list for affordability and luxury, the Grand Hyatt is a five star affair from check-in to checkout. Our stay was enhanced by a stunning corner suite, complete with views over the Cotai strip, a lounge room, bedroom, and a bathroom larger than some hotel rooms altogether. If the room couldn’t get any better, we had access to the executive lounge that provided all-day refreshments and a delicious western and chinese hot buffet for breakfast and at the nightly cocktail hour. The executive lounge was large and beautifully decorated in rich blues and golds and the walls were punctuated with contemporary art works of the streets of Hong Kong and Macau. We wouldn’t recommend walking, as the location was not suited to it, but being a casino city, each different casino had a free bus which picked you up from the hotel and delivered you to the other casinos. This free bus was convenient as you could get to all parts of Macau by catching the bus for free and walking from there, it even picked you up from the ferry stop, where most people come from Hong Kong. Overall, we found the Grand Hyatt Macau to be a great value and modern hotel, and recommend it for your next visit to Macau.
