Best Macau casino hotels, Wynn
Wynn Macau: imposing sweep/ photo: hotel
Near the city centre is the 594-room Wynn Macau, the first foreign competitor to magnate Stanley Ho’s original, glittering granddaddy of Macau gaming, the Hotel Lisboa. It is easily among the top Macau luxury casino hotels. The shiny, choc-coloured crescent has made its mark on the Macau skyline. And the fountain that explodes into some serious water-dance action outside the main entrance at quarter-hour intervals is quite a draw.

The hotel has been constantly evolving, a consequence of its owner Steve Wynn’s mercurial style and taste. The result is a sense of freshness, brisk service and energy. No question, this is a large casino hotel in the Las Vegas mould, and the live dragon tiger is the popular game of all. Within that ambit, however, it manages to exude an elegant, even formal, presence. The lobby, keeps you on your toes – literally – as it is curiously void of seating, but also manages to successfully juxtapose ancient Chinese ceramics (the four vases on display are worth US$10 million alone), a shimmering gilded ceiling and a slew of bright colours, including its own original shade of “tango” (yep, that’s tangerine and mango). In any other hotel this contrast may look silly, but the Wynn pulls it off.
