The Ritz-Carlton, Macau opened last month is the Ritz-Carlton group’s 11th luxury hotel in China and also luxury hotel chain’s first ever all-suite hotel in the world. Located on top floors of Cotai’s Galaxy Macau entertainment and resort complex, it has 254 suites including three Villa Suites. Last year over 31 million tourists visited Macau with the majority coming from mainland China, this bodes well for the newly opened hotel that offers everything from fine dining to world-class entertainment, incredibly luxurious amenities and a full-service spa.
Everything starts when you check-in at the lobby on the 51st floor (in-suite check-in also available). Each suite averages at least 96 square meters and offer breathtaking views of the Cotai and rest of the city. The suites feature elegant decorations including rich carpeting, a comforting color palette and spacious baths with a deep soaking tub and luxurious amenities. Hotel decorations include Azulejo tiles, a form of Portuguese or Spanish ceramic tile, a part of colonial heritage décor found in Macau today.
Also located on the 51st floor is Lai Heen restaurant with five private dining rooms and a cigar room. They offer high-end Cantonese cuisine hand-crafted by skillful staff led by Chef Fu Man Piu. Head over to the French brasserie style Ritz-Carlton Café located on the ground floor to enjoy pastries, fresh seafood and traditional afternoon pastries. The Ritz-Carlton Bar & Lounge is the place to be if you want to enjoy everything from a la carte breakfast to afternoon teas to cocktails and tapas in the evening.
