Macau’s glittering skyline sees a brand new addition, as the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Macau, opens in the pulsating heart of the business, entertainment and upscale shopping districts. Situated bang on the Nape waterfront, the towering 23-storey hotel offers 213 designer rooms and suites, with views of Taipa Island, Nam Van Lake and South China’s hilly coastline. Expectedly, there is a range of leisure facilities to choose from: a spa that overlooks the sea, a heated pool and a high-tech gym. Other facilities include the all-day dining Vida Rica restaurant and bar with a Chinese, Japanese and contemporary Western menu, a lobby lounge, a banquet hall and independent rooms for conferences and business meetings.
