IN MACAU, THE WYNN CLUB BURSTS WITH EXCLUSIVITY, THANKS TO A NEW CHECK-IN SPACE AND ITS BOUQUET OF BRIGHT, LIVE BLOOMS TO WELCOME VIP GUESTS.
Wynn Macau’s Wynn Club entrance has always exuded luxury and exclusivity, and now it literally bursts with this idea. In an unprecedented feat using flowers, water, technical machinations, and sophisticated design, the new reception area welcomes VIP guests with the resort’s first-ever wall of live blooms. The spectacular blooms-within-blooms are bouquets of roses, peonies, chrysanthemums, vanda orchids, and hydrangeas, designed on a special mirror-covered wall in the shapes of eight oversized, vibrant flowers. “We needed colors that would stand out against the mirror,” explains Roger Thomas, Executive Vice President of Design for Wynn Design and Development. “So we included fuchsia, an orange/yellow, and a brilliant lime green. These are also great flower colors, too.” Wynn Macau’s floral team checks the flowers every morning to find any blooms, which rest in tubes of water set at a very particular angle, that need to be replaced. “We want the flowers to look really, really fresh and perfect all of the time,” says Thomas, who has wanted to construct a floral wall like this for more than 10 years. The arrangement, unveiled in July after almost a year of research and design, is part of an overall renovation of the Wynn Club entrance, which includes the check-in and private Wynn Club Dining. The 34-seat dining room, which is open only to VIPS and guests of the Grand Deluxe and one- and two-bedroom suites, now opens up directly into the lobby. A beautiful dragon embroidery design, by London’s Beaumont & Fletcher, was also added. “Beaumont & Fletcher is one of the great European embroidery houses and is the long-time embroiderer for Buckingham Palace, among other royalty,” Thomas says. “We worked closely with them on this, the first dragon on gilded leather.” The 24-hour Wynn Club Dining offers dim sum (mornings and afternoons) and à la carte menus, and serves as a lounge with offerings of fine wines, premium cocktails, and imported cigars.
