Mandarin Oriental, Macau: Macau
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.
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 ensuite bathroom perfectly compliments the glamorous room and has everything I could have possibly needed and more.
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.
This is Andi’s pick too! I have yet to stay at an MO but I have always wanted to!
Oh you must!!!!! I know with 100% certainty you would fall crazy in love with their chain.
Oh wow. You are/were in Macau recently while I’m in the other end of the world. I would have come and meet up with you for portuguese egg tart 🙂
Awww don’t say that! That makes me so sad!!! I would have LOVED to have met you in Macau and shared an egg tart over what I’m sure wold have been awesome conversation. Hope you’re having the travels of your life!
Oh my gosh, Andi–looks amazing!
It truly was a hotel I will never forget! XO
Wow, what a view!! Especially from that tub – how awesome!
God do I miss it!!!!!!! I think I must have taken a thousand photos of THAT view.
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 did see those — they looked 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.
The gifts were incredible, such a special touch!!! And yes little things leave a big impression! Couldn’t agree more 🙂
Wow! That is so cool! I want to go there and I love the little gift bonus!
Isn’t that awesome!?! I shouldn’t admit this, but I ate all of the chocolate in 1 sitting hahaha. The fruit took me a while.
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?
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!
Not that you can ever go wrong at at Mandarin Oriental, but… WOWOW!!
Hahaha I love it that was my reaction too! 🙂
Ah, that bathroom view!
The best of the best!
What a gorgeous view, I can see why it would be a pick.
Isn’t that view to-die-for???
It’s my god to stay there 1 day!
Now THAT is a goal!
Stunning post and pics!
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!)
I had never visited Macau but after reading your post seeing some awesome photos, I feel that I have been there. I will try to visit Macau in next summer vacation at that time these information will useful to me.
You have no idea how deeply it touches me that you could be that inspired from my photos and words, so much so, that you MUST make Macau happen, because i know you would LOVE IT!!!!!!
Now this a place I would travel all the way across the world to stay at!
Now that’s what I’m saying!!!
You have to love the little presents. Special touches like that make hotel stays truly memorable. Looks beautiful!
Couldn’t agree with more darling!!!!! It was SO beautiful!
I wish I were there now!!
Wish I could join you as well dear! 🙂
If there was a bowl of fruit in my room I would be a happy girl!
And the bedding is beautiful!
Have a great weekend Andi!
Haha I must admit that while I do love fruit, I definitely prefer the chocolate. 😉 Have a great weekend yourself dear!!!
What a gorgeous place!
Couldn’t be more gorgeous!
I want to take my wife here!
You would both love it!
I literally must stay here it’s so beautiful!
You must must must stay here!!!
