WYNN’S GOURMET GEMS
Wynn Palace Cotai is the first stop for the gourmet traveller when it comes to all things fine and culinary in Macau
With its smorgasbord of street delicacies and unique Macanese cuisine, Macau has long been a popular culinary stop for the food lover. But in the last decade or so, Macau has gained a reputation amongst well-heeled travellers for culinary delights of the finer variety. And while the Macau Peninsula has been the traditional draw, these days, the attention is on Cotai. The manmade island that connects Coloane and Taipa is home to Macau’s newest and finest hotels and resorts, including Wynn Palace.
A CULINARY EXTRAVAGANZA
The second luxury integrated resort in the Wynn portfolio, Wynn Palace Cotai is also one of the largest in Macau, with 1,706 exquisitely appointed rooms, suites and villas.
Indeed, the property is simply quite palatial as its name would suggest, complete with bespoke amenities, rare Chinese art and contemporary sculptures in fine Wynn tradition. Designed around a floral theme, the grounds are decked with sumptuous large-scale floral displays by celebrated designer Preston Bailey that are changed according to the seasons. Not surprisingly, Wynn Palace has garnered numerous awards since it opened in 2016, including Forbes FiveStar Awards for its hotel, restaurants and spa. It has also upped the luxury ante in Cotai, if not the entire of Macau, reaffirming Macau’s status as a world-class destination.
Naturally, the highly rated property has also staked its place on the city’s culinary scene with its diverse range of gourmet offerings. For an elegant affair, check out to Wynn Palace’s stellar roster of top restaurants such as Wing Lei Palace, which is renowned for its fine Cantonese delicacies; and SW Steakhouse, one of the premier steakhouses in town. Alternatively, there is also an enviable clutch of casual eateries dishing up goodies for every taste and palate, from traditional handcrafted Japanese noodles at Hanami Ramen to delectable macarons in every imaginable colour and flavour.
There is also Wing Lei Bar, a requisite stop for pre-dinner aperitifs or a night cap. The plush gilded space is visually stunning with an 18th century Italian rock crystal chandelier as centrepiece and an equally impressive menu of prized wines, specialty cocktails and premium spirits to match.
