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

Wine & Dine - - BEHIND THE SCENES: FEATURE -

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.
