Lux­u­ri­ous re­treats are aplenty in Ma­cau, but with the un­veil­ing of Mor­pheus in June, Co­tai now ex­udes new lus­tre. De­signed by the late Pritzker Ar­chi­tec­ture Prize-win­ning ar­chi­tect, Zaha Ha­did, the ho­tel is an ar­rest­ing sight within City of Dreams, an in­te­grated re­sort. The stun­ning free-form geo­met­ric grid sur­round­ing its ex­te­rior does more than paint a pretty pic­ture. It negates the need for ob­struct­ing struc­tures that would clut­ter the in­te­ri­ors, giv­ing famed in­te­rior de­signer Peter Reme­dios the dream can­vas for its 770 rooms, suites and two-storey sky vil­las. The ca­pa­cious rooms not only of­fer com­mand­ing views of the city but are also dec­o­rated with art pieces from ac­claimed con­tem­po­rary artists, KAWS and Jean-michel Othoniel. Other pam­per­ing ameni­ties in­clude a grav­ity-de­fy­ing Sky Pool which stands 130m above ground and a two-storey Mor­pheus Spa with an in-house Spa But­ler and state-of-the-art Snow Gar­den.

For gourmets, the World of Du­casse at Mor­pheus im­presses with two restau­rants – Alain Du­casse at Mor­pheus and Voy­ages by Alain Du­casse. Yi at the Sky Bridge, on the other hand, presents re­gional Chi­nese cuisines in an eight-course omakase menu. There’s also The Uni­verse of Pierre Hermé for dessert afi­ciona­dos. Room rates from MOP2,998/S$505. Mor­pheus at City of Dreams, Estrada do Istmo, Co­tai, Ma­cau. Tel: +853 8868 8888
