Before you head out to enjoy an evening swim or a night on the town, you have to get ready. There’s no better staging ground than your room – no matter how much sleeping you intend to do!
A Deluxe Suite at the Conrad, with its ultra-soft hooded bathrobes, satin slippers, and Aromatherapy Associates bath products is where even the most demanding will find a brief respite before heading out.
Enjoy a few brief moments outside in either The Venetian’s Verona Suite or the Sheraton’s Terrace Suite. Their outdoor areas are the place to savour the last moments of sunlight and the incredible array of colours that make the Macanese sunsets.
A view of the Eiffel Tower from the Lyon Suite at The Parisian will give you a bird’s eye look at Macau’s hottest attraction: the light show. Pick at your room service order while you finish getting ready and watch the show or call down for reservations to start your night right.
Within the Cotai Strip, evenings are an incredible array of international options. Dinner from any one of MOP150+ eateries, serving cuisines from around the world. But, according to the Executive Chef, the best table might well be the corner table at La Chine, The Parisian’s incomparable Franco-Asian paradise inside the Eiffel Tower.
After your meal, stroll around the observations decks, taking in the view as you begin to reminisce about the flavours of your favourite dishes. Or, for the more adventurous, head to The Venetian and join in on one of their infamous pool parties. Sway your hips to the beat as you sip a cocktail and cool off in the pool after a few dances.
When you slip out into the city as the sun goes down, sample the local foods as locals do, whether on the street or at a table. Egg tarts, pepper buns, and pork sandwiches line the streets leading up to the Ruins of St Paul’s. Or, taste the Portuguese flavours at Fernando’s – a small, romantic eatery with delicious food and a no reservations policy.
Thrill seekers can plan their trip during October to see the International Fireworks contest…from the SkyWalk on Macau Tower! The tower offers special packages to see the entries from different countries compete for the title. Gaze out over the city and watch as the fireworks come to you!
Or, if you want to get a bird’s eye view without the death-defying SkyWalk, try a couple of cocktails from Sky21. One of the city’s premier nightlife destinations, it’s the perfect place to dance the night away.
No matter how you spend the evening, you simply can’t head back to the room without passing through the spa and ensuring you get an incredible night’s sleep and wake ready to tackle a day of sights and adventures or meetings and networks.
