Andi’s Pick: Mandarin Oriental, Macau

May 9, 2012

Mandarin Oriental, Macau: Macau

 First Impression

The best thing about staying in a Mandarin Oriental property for the first time is that you already know you are guaranteed to leave a satisfied customer.  In fact, you will probably leave wanting to extend your stay.  My time at the Mandarin Oriental, Macau was no exception to this — I would have been happy to stay indefinitely.


Located right on the picturesque waterfront, the hotel has a prime location, as it just minutes from the best casinos in the region and the historical center.

The Room

My spacious bedroom was decorated with the classic Mandarin Oriental decor; a luxurious mix of East meets West.  The hotel describes it as, “a dramatic contemporary design with an atmosphere of oriental calm.”

While I was smitten with how the room was decorated, the view of the South China Sea and the Macau Tower was undeniably the best part about it.

 The Bathroom

The ensuite bathroom perfectly compliments the glamorous room and has everything I could have possibly needed and more.

The Extras

While people who stay at the Mandarin Oriental, Macau fall hopelessly in love with their rooms, the hotel does offer an award-winning restaurant and spa on premise that will definitely compete for your attention.  There is also a stunning infinity pool that will beckon you to visit it from the moment you check in.

Why It Is Andi’s Pick

Every day I was left a little present in my room; everything from flowers to chocolate to fruit.  The hotel does this for every single guest and it definitely leaves the impression that they truly care.

    I love me a nice hotel! Generally, I prefer small boutique hotels but sometimes you just can’t beat the big ones. They know what they’re doing!

      I prefer small boutiques as well, but the MO will always have a special place in my heart. Did you see the places that I reviewed in Brasil? They were small boutique hotels. AMAZING!!!

    I love that they leave little gifts for you each day, Andi. That is really going the extra mile, and although it’s only little things, it leaves a big impression.

    Taking a bubble bath with that view would be divine.

    It’s funny, because out of all these things – the beautiful room, the gorgeous view – I am most intrigued by the yellow chocolate! Haha – what is it?

    1. Andi Perullo

      I believe it was some type of white chocolate? I wish I could remember exactly what it was. The MO, Macau actually has a famous chocolate shop in it. It’s incredible!!! I took several bubble baths in that tub…no words!

    They always capitalise upon the city’s best views! I stayed in the Mandarin Oriental in KL, directly opposite the twin towers and have never been anywhere to match the luxury! However, I’m equally happy in youth hostels (bar the often paper thin walls!)
