Mandarin Oriental, Macau’s contemporary theme sports a shimmering glass exterior reflecting out to the South China Sea. It does not, however, offer gaming - allowing more focus on relaxation, and less on losing your shirt. Of course, if you do want to roll the bones, just step out to the strip, and try your luck.
213 rooms offer beyond-amazing views of the sea, the strip, and the Space Needle. The spa is a major feature here, offering the heralded consultations and treatments the Mandarin chain is famous for. A little-known must-visit is the Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop, where fluffy sweets beg to be inhaled.
